Since the reveal announcement last November and the preview back in May, Multiversus has finally reached the beta stage of development.
In a weighty announcement today, Warner Bros. Games has revealed Multiversus will be officially entering the open beta stage of development today by allowing fans to dive into the action on all platforms for the remainder of the beta testing period.
With the vagabond grouping of characters from all realms—including DC Comics, Adventure Time, Game of Thrones, Tom & Jerry and more—this will likely be the only platform where gamers can say ‘Shaggy just threw a sandwich at Arya Stark!’ The most recent character announcements came in the way of Lebron James as a full-fledged character from Space Jam, with Rick Sanchez and Morty Smith from the titular Rick & Morty Adult Swim cartoon.
There are numerous gameplay modes included with the Multiversus beta. 1 vs 1 matchups, 2 vs 2 matchups, free-for-all modes, vs AI modes, a training lab, tutorials, and online multiplayer lobbies have been confirmed for the main title so far, but it remains to be seen how much will be included in the Open Beta period. The Alpha testing had a whittled down roster, with a small stage selection of options, so the Beta will likely have a reduction as well.
Players can also duke it out on easy-to-recognize locales with character-centric themes such as the Batcave (DC), Tree Fort (Adventure Time), Scooby’s Haunted Mansion (Scooby-Doo), and much more. Multiversus will also feature their own unique characters to the title, such as the friendly-looking Reindog.
The Multiversus Founder’s Pack is also up for grabs for those who can’t wait a moment longer to jump into the action, along with a preseason battle pass allowing fans to earn rewards for the full release when it comes out. The Open Beta period is available today, and concludes on August 8th, followed by a full regular season battle pass starting on August 9th. It’s worth mentioning, the beta can only be accessed through the founder’s packs, but the full title remains free-to-play when it drops after the Beta period.
