MultiVersus: characters, modes, packs and more information


Since 1999 there has been a franchise that many companies have wanted to replicate, with varying success, so it is surprising that it is Warner Bros Games that has now taken the step of trying to scratch a bit of the cake from the Japanese although, yes, without conflicting with them. Nintendo Switch is left out of this Multiversus that promises famous people and many hits per square meter.

Where did Multiversus come from?

Warner Bros Games is a company that in recent years has revolved its entire launch strategy around very successful franchises such as LEGO, something from Harry Potter, characters from DC comics and some oddities such as Left 4 Dead . Almost always with paid titles, but the step taken by the North Americans has been one of those that surprises because they have entered a genre that, in the past, caused small failures. Like Sony, for example, who released PlayStation All Stars Battle Royale in late 2012 for PS3 and PS Vita and a decade later, no trace of it on PS4 or PS5.

So this movement by Warner Bros Games is complex but they hope it will work, based above all on several pillars: the fundamental one, the huge list of characters that players might like, which not only includes DC heroes and villains, such as to all the modern and classic series from the American factory, from Looney Tunes and Scooby Doo to Tom and Jerry or the franchises born in recent decades thanks to Cartoon Network, such as Adventure Time , Rick and Morty , etc.


The objective of the game is, furthermore, to expand over the months with the arrival of new characters who will periodically add weight to the roster of fighters because, let’s not deny it, much of the success of Multiversus in the near future is going to depend on how receptive the community is when buying ingame items , which are what make these projects become inexhaustible sources of income.

For what systems will Multiversus arrive?

The Warner Bros Games title will be multiplatform in such a way that all users of:

  • Windows 10 and 11 PCs (via Steam)
  • Playstation 4
  • Playstation 5
  • Xbox One
  • Xbox Series X/S

Don’t expect it to come to Nintendo Switch anytime soon as Warner Bros will first want it to gain a foothold on those systems where there’s no clear competitor. Another thing is that, after its launch, if it becomes a global phenomenon, Americans are encouraged to take the step of landing on the Japanese console, where Super Smash Bros Ultimate reigns quite calmly .

Will Multiversus be crossplay?

We have good news because, indeed, Multiversus will have cross-play between all platforms in such a way that it will not matter which console you or your friends have as long as it is one of the supported ones. In this way, the game has more options to become a success thanks to the fact that the traditional barriers linked to the number of users present on each platform are no longer relevant.

This cross-play also affects all the purchases we make, so if we progress for months on PS4 and make the jump, for example, to an Xbox Series X, we will not lose any cosmetics , gestures, fighters or scenarios that we have purchased. As well as the resources generated.

Release date and price

As for the moment in which Multiversus will arrive in stores, it must be said that there is no confirmed date , only a vague 2022 that was initially going to be placed in the month of July. At the moment it seems that these plans are not going to be fully fulfilled, so we have to wait for official news when Warner Bros Games decides to make them public.

Regarding the price, it is a free to play that we can download from the PlayStation Store, Microsoft Store and Steam, although later we will have packs available with a lot of different items grouped together. Here are the three that are currently available:

MultiVersus packs.

The plain Founder’s Pack is the cheapest and only offers 15 tickets to redeem for characters (there are 18 starters), plus a banner and in-game resources. If you look at the other two ( Deluxe and Premium Founder’s Pack ) the thing grows in number of fighters, number of banners that include rare and epic types, battle passes, an effect, a skin and Gleamium to redeem within Multiversus .

Their prices are:

  • Multiversus : free.
  • Multiversus Founder’s Pack : 39.99 euros.
  • Multiversus Deluxe Founder’s Pack : 59.99 euros.
  • Multiversus Premium Founder’s Pack : 99.99 euros.

If you want to know the ones that will arrive in a first moment, below you have the complete list.

How to play?

We could explain how Multiversus works simply by referring to Super Smash Bros , but if you don’t think so we won’t do that so it doesn’t feel like it’s an exact copy. In reality it is not, although apparently it can transmit certain coincidences to us.

The most important is that we will be able to star in fights within a scenario between teams of two fighters each or in a more traditional versus mode against another opponent. We decide if we want to enjoy alone or accompanied while we try to kick our enemy off the map. Obviously we will be able to do it using the skills of each of the combatants, who will have specific statistics, in addition to their own blows and skills that we will modify as we gain experience and coins. It is contemplated, for example, that each of the characters evolve through a relatively customizable progress.

To keep the meta equal for all players, Warner Bros has decided that each of these fighters has basic statistics that cannot be modified so that the player’s ability is more important than the size of his wallet and the desire to spend more or less money. Even so, there will be small items that we can install on the weapons to gain a little more attack or defense power. But since all players will be able to progress in the same way, equality remains quite intact and without imbalances.

What can we buy?

In order not to break the balance in combat, Warner Bros Games has pointed out that players will be able to get items that they can equip. Some will be the result of rewards for hours of play or challenges completed, but others will not be accessible if we do not spend money, both real and gold and Gleamium. So write down everything you can buy:

  • Wrestlers : Over time, Multiversus will add to its roster of wrestlers, which we can buy by themes, franchises, or special packs.
  • Scenarios : in the same way, new locations can also be enjoyed to accompany the franchises present with places that are well-known and very recognizable by fans.
  • Appearances – Each fighter will be able to display different outfits that you will have ready to purchase in the Multiverse digital store.
  • Gestures : As is already the case in Fortnite, the poses of our character will also be marketed, so after a tight match you will see how the fighters make fun of the loser… without scruples.
  • Accessories : caps, glasses, floats and other elements that change the appearance (partially) of our fighter cannot be missing.
  • Banners: they provide certain extras to the character during combat.
  • Gold and Gleamium , which are the two resources that allow us to acquire content within Multiversus .

all game modes

Although we can imagine the modes that Multiversus will have , the official ones announced by the company are:

  • Combat tutorials.
  • Team fights 2 vs. 2 (cooperative online and local).
  • Fights 1 vs. 1.
  • Battles for 4 players, all against all.
  • Team fights of 2 vs. AI.
  • Personal online rooms.
  • Practice mode (called The Lab).

What characters can we control?

MultiVersus Roster.

Multiverse has a long way to go but it is certain that his “to be or not to be” is at stake on the roster And the truth is that the free version that we can download completely free allows us to choose between 18 available fighters : 17 belong to well-known Warner Bros franchises and only one is original to this title.

And are next:

Franchise Character’s name
Adventure Time Finn
DC Comics Batman
harley quinn
Game of Thrones arya stark
The iron Giant Iron Giant
looney tunes bugs bunny
rick and morty Rick
spacejam Lebron James
Steven Universe Steven Universe
Tom and Jerry Tom

Can you play it right now?

Since July 26, Multiversus has been in the open beta phase, so you can participate and start testing what its combats will be like. To play it you only have to have a compatible platform from the one indicated above and access the digital store of the console. There you will find the client to download it completely free and start playing with it.

Warner Bros Games reports that all the progress of this open beta will remain active when a release date is officially set, so it looks like the open process on July 26 has become a covert early access . So don’t be afraid to buy something or put hours into it to get rewards, because they will be maintained for the final release of the game in the coming weeks.

Although if you want to acquire any of the three Founder’s Pack you will start with quite a lot of winnings, and not just a ticket to obtain one of the characters. You can access the selection page for these editions from here.
