Over the past few weeks, it was already rumored by the Internet, now its official: Warner Bros. Games brings next year a beating game on the market, which combines characters from various brands of Warner Bros. Multiverse means it and becomes a free-to-play track for PC, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X / S and Xbox One. Switch players stay outside, but we can well imagine that a version for the Nintendo console will be announced later.
In the case, Multiverses would then get in direct competition to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, from which developer Player First Games surely have inspired. This is a studio from Los Angeles, which was founded only in 2019. Multiverse is thus his first project. In it, the Americans make a truly colorful pile of characters. Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman and Harley Quinn from the DC Comic Universe, Shaggy from Scooby-Doo, Bugs Bunny, Arya strong from Game of Thrones, Tom and Jerry, Jake and Finn Adventure Time, Steven Universe and Garnet from Steven Universe and a new character called Random.
The figures are placed by prominent speakers, namely those who speak them in films and / or series. Thus, Kevin Conroy Batman again lends his voice, as he already did in the 90s cartoon series and the Batman: Arkham games. Matthew Lillard, who has played Shaggy in the two Scooby-Doo looking films, also speaks him in Multiverses and Maisie Williams is strongly heard as an Arya.
The focus of Multiverses are 2-counter-2 team struggles. The developers attach great importance to teamwork. So the skills of the characters can be combined clever to complete the opponents. But there will also be a duel mode and an everyone against every. A dedicated server-based rollback network code should provide a very good online performance. In addition, Crossly is announced, and the game should, as it belongs nowadays, is regularly expanded with seasons to expand its new content.
However, how exactly the business model looks, so whether you can earn the characters or can only access a limited, rotating selection and only get permanent access to figures for money, is unknown. But since there is no solid release date yet, a lot of time is likely to go to the publication. In advance, there will be closed test phases for which you can already register on the official website.
