MultiVersus has been in the works for some time. And it came to us all as a surprise! How could it not? When you see a new game announced, you don’t tend to expect to see a fighting game featuring Steven Universe and Arya Stark ready to battle it out. That being said, we can’t deny our curiosity and excitement!
So what exactly is MultiVersus? Well let’s explore, shall we?
What kind of game is MultiVersus?
So far, we know that MultiVersus will be a free-to-play, platform fighter videogame that introduces a team-based 2 vs. 2 formats. It will feature a wide roster of characters from just about anywhere. Considering Multiversus is owned by Warner Bros, there’s no telling who and what we’ll see in the game!
It certainly seems as though the majority of developers might be abandoning the Battle Royale format, and moving on to fighting platformers.
Is MultiVersus free?
Yes, MultiVersus is a free-to-play, PVP-style game brought to us by Warner Bros. and taking full advantage of their pop culture IP.
