Warner Bros. Games has recently announced the new free-to-play, platform fighter video game MultiVersus.
This new F2P platform fighter video game introduces a team-based 2 vs. 2 format and combines with an ever-expanding cast of iconic characters and legendary universes. This is being developed by Player First Games. This will have a worldwide release sometime in 2022 on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, and PC with full cross-play support, dedicated server-based rollback netcode, and content-filled seasons. Pre-registration for the upcoming playtests are now available at the official website MultiVersus.com.
The game will showcase a variety of characters from different worlds to team up or compete against in epic battles. These characters include Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Harley Quinn, Shaggy, Arya Stark, Bugs Bunny, Tom and Jerry, Jake the Dog, Finn the Human, Steven Universe, Garnet, Reindog, and more characters to come.
MultiVersus will focus more on online cooperative gameplay and every fighter will have a deep set of combat mechanics that distinguish the game’s fresh take on 2 vs. 2 gameplay. This allows players to customize their movesets in order to combine with other characters for cooperative gameplay. Also, Shaggy can become a Super Saiyan, the meme is now a reality.
MultiVersus will also include 1 vs. 1 clashes and 4 player free-for-all mode and only one character to come out on top.

Games. “We are partnering with the talented team at Player First Games to bring together a free-to-play, online platform fighter with a wealth of iconic characters that fans know and love, from Wonder Woman and Bugs Bunny to Shaggy and Arya from Game of Thrones. And this is just the beginning, as we are excited to support upcoming seasons and ongoing game content.”
