Warner Bros. Games Announces MultiVersus
Warner Bros. Games today announced MultiVersus, an all-new free-to-play, platform fighter that introduces a team-based 2 vs. 2 format combined with an ever-expanding cast of iconic characters and legendary universes. Developed by Player First Games, MultiVersus is scheduled for release in 2022 on PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One and PC with full cross-play support, dedicated server-based rollback netcode and content-filled seasons. Pre-registration for upcoming playtests is available now at MultiVersus.com.
MultiVersus will showcase a variety of heroes and personalities to team up with or compete against in battles, including Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman and Harley Quinn (DC Super Heroes & DC Super-Villains); Shaggy (Scooby-Doo); Bugs Bunny (Looney Tunes); Arya Stark (Game of Thrones); Tom and Jerry (Tom and Jerry); Jake the Dog and Finn the Human (Adventure Time); Steven Universe and Garnet (Steven Universe); an original creature named Reindog; and many more to come.
Featuring matches with a strong emphasis on online cooperative gameplay, every fighter will be outfitted with a set of combat mechanics that distinguish the game’s fresh take on 2 vs. 2 gameplay. This allows combatants to boast customizable movesets that combine dynamically with other characters as they battle for supremacy. From Wonder Woman and her Lasso of Truth attack being unexpectedly paired with Shaggy and his sandwich projectile, to Arya Stark’s face-swapping ability being used to complement Superman’s laser vision, the impossible can become possible through team combinations and matchups. The game’s multiplayer bouts can be set against the backdrop of various reimagined environments, such as Batman’s Batcave, Jake and Finn’s Tree Fort and many others. MultiVersus will also include 1 vs. 1 clashes and a 4-player free-for-all mode where only one fighter can come out on top.
