MultiVersus’ Season 1 battle pass will have 50 tiers of grindable collectibles, while Wonder Women will be getting some much-needed updates.
Player First Games and Warner Bros. have been gaining traction for their latest free-to-play fighting game, MultiVersus. The game studio released the first complete battle pass (aka Fighter’s Pass) will include 50 tiers and cost 950 Gleamium. The game’s director, Tony Huynh also shared how the Season 1 release patch update on August 9 will include some changes to Wonder Woman and Bugs Bunny.
The question of how much MultiVersus’ first season Fighter’s Pass would be was posed on Twitter and Huynh was quick to answer with the 50 tier and 950 Gleamium response. Players will have to spend $9.99 on 1,000 Gleamium to unlock the Fighter’s Pass. Currently, the pre-season Fighter’s Pass was noted to be 300 Gleamium (around $4.99) and had fewer tiers.
Players who were in the closed technical alpha would have caught the Fighter’s pass was 50 tiers as well, so the secret was not necessarily a big one. This would be great for Season 1 as it would be half the size of a battle pass for games like Fortnite, Apex Legends, and Hearthstone—which all have established player bases. Valorant has been finding its footing and also has a 50-tier battle pass system.
For those who finished the Fighter’s Pass early, Huynh assured there would be some kind of reward. “We’ll figure out something for this, probably some extra gold,” the MultiVersus game director stated on Twitter. As MultiVersus has been collecting a lot of in-game information from players, some balance changes are expected when Season 1 drops. The main balance changes announced so far focus on Wonder Woman and Bugs Bunny.
Sources have pointed that Wonder Woman’s abilities would be “increased” somehow and that Bugs Bunny would be nerfed with his wide range of abilities. MultiVersus’ open beta debuted in July and has been notable for its diverse, famous playable characters such as Batman, the Iron Giant, and even Lebron James! Some leaks have already revealed that the game could have Rick and Morty joining the roster sometime this August.
MultiVersus has aimed to compete with Nintendo’s famous fighting game series, Super Smash Bros. and have been trying to avoid a failure as bad as Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl. The free-to-play element, cross-platform aspect and the access to many IPs could put the game at a big advantage for MultiVersus to thrive over Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.
It has been clear that the MultiVersus devs have been listening to its players closely and have been willing to make balance changes that makes sense. Based on the close alpha, Tazmanian Devil was already reworked due to his “broken” abilities. Personally, I am finding Finn to be a bit of a hassle to deal with, especially his hard charge attacks.
MultiVersus will officially launch its first season on August 9, 2022—after EVO 2022. CGMagazine was able to offer some in-depth preview knowledge on the wacky game, which has demonstrated that Bugs Bunny could indeed clap Superman’s cheeks. I have been having a great time figuring out the best characters in each tier and how they fit into the meta.
MultiVersus is playable now on Steam (PC), PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S.
