MultiVersus finally made its maiden voyage in season one. New Battle Passes are available, both free and paid varieties. Developer Player First Games also announced two new fighters.
Season 1 adds several additions to MultiVersus, including character balance, more achievable Battle Pass requirements, and new free characters in the rotation (these include Arya, Bat Man, LeBron James and Steven Universe). Player First also plans to add a classic arcade mode and a new ranked mode in the first season.
As part of the Season 1 release, Warner Bros. also announced two other characters: from Gremlins Black Adam and Stripes by DC Comics. Both will roll out to players in the coming months. The two fighters had previously appeared in the leaked list. Additionally, Morty Smith from Rick & Morty will join the roster on August 23rd.
Warner Bros. has not confirmed when Black Adam or Stripe will be released. Presumably, Adam’s addition will coincide with the character’s self-titled DCEU film, which is set to hit theaters in October. MultiVersus director Tony Huynh confirmed on Twitter that both will launch in season one. Rick Sanchez is another character added later this season.
