Warner Bros latest fighting game will include Superman, Wonder Woman, Bugs Bunny, Arya Stark and more. Here’s how to sign up to the alpha and when it goes live
MultiVersus is an upcoming free-to-play fighting game developed by Player First Games and published by Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment. Much like Super Smash Bros Ultimate of Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl, it’s another entry into the genre which pits characters from various properties (in hierdie geval, the Warner Bros back catalogue) against each other.
Expect to see Arya Stark from Speletjie van trone clash swords with Finn the Human from Adventure Time, or Tom and Jerry take a comically oversized mallet to Shaggy and Velma. Like the name suggets, Multiversus throws caution to the wind when it comes to canonical accuracy.
What sets Multiversus apart from the likes of Smash Bros is a focus on team-ups. Standard battles will take place in a 2 vs 2 format, with various Warner Bros characters being matched up to perform combos, takedowns in order to push their opponents off the level.
Terwyl Multiversus doesn’t have a set release date, a closed alpha test is being launched so players can test out the new mechanics of the game, as well as try their hand at the large roster of fighters initially on offer.
If you want to find out how to sign up for the alpha, what characters will be playable and what else to expect, then keep reading the rest of the article below.
