Warner Bros. Games has today announced MultiVersus, a brand new free-to-play platform fighter for PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, and PC. It will introduce 2v2 team-based fights featuring an ever-expanding cast of characters and universes. Coming in 2022, MultiVersus is being developed by Player First Games.
Some of the characters already announced include Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, and Harley Quinn from DC; Shaggy from Scooby Doo; Bugs Bunny from Looney Tunes; Arya Stark from Game of Thrones; Tom & Jerry; Jake and Finn from Adventure Time; Steven Universe and Garnet from Steven Universe; and original creature Reindog.
MultiVersus will have a strong emphasis on online cooperative gameplay. Every fighter will have a deep combat mechanic, boasting customisable movesets that combine dynamically with other characters. If you ever wondered how the Lasso of Truth works with Shaggy’s sandwiches, or Arya’s face-swapping and Superman’s laser vision combine, you won’t have to imagine anymore.
