MultiVersus had to delay the launch of Season 1 and the new Morty character, but patient players will be compensated.
The exciting free-to-play crossover fighting game, MultiVersus, was developed by Player First Games and released by Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment. Characters from Warner Bros., DC Comics, HBO, Turner Entertainment, and Cartoon Network, are featured in this title, along with other characters from the Warner Bros. Discovery catalog.
Players engage in combat in a variety of arenas in MultiVersus, where they aim to push their opponents beyond the confines of the playing field. The amount of damage that a character sustains determines how far they are pushed back. The most common way to play the game is in a format known as 2-vs-2, but there are alternative options, including 1v1 and free-for-all. On July 19th, early access to MultiVersus was made available to players who had taken part in closed playtests as well as those who were competing in the 2022 Evolution Championship Series.
Rick and Morty were both reported to be part of the MultiVersus roster soon during the 2022 San Diego Comic-Con event. A LeBron James character was also announced to be playable in the game during the same event. Soon after that, the open beta for the title was made available on July 26, 2022.
The launch date of MultiVersus Season 1 was initially scheduled for August 9, 2022. However, the official Twitter account for MultiVersus has recently announced that the release of the first season, along with the inclusion of Morty, would be delayed. In acknowledgment of the fans’ patience and support, MultiVersus has decided to extend the validity period of the Pre-Season Battle Pass until August 15th.
The delayed release of MultiVersus season 1 and the addition of Morty may be quite disappointing for some, especially those who have been looking forward to it with great anticipation. Nonetheless, it may also be for the best if it gives the developers additional time to enhance the gameplay and make necessary modifications. Although it is still uncertain when the new release date for Season 1 will be, fans may follow the official MultiVersus Twitter account for updates.
