Warner Bros. Games: ‘MultiVersus’ Surpasses 20 Million Players

Warner Bros. Games announced that MultiVersus, the new free-to-play platform fighter video game, has now surpassed more than 20 million players since the game’s open beta launch on July 26.

The milestone follows the kickoff of MultiVersus: Season 1, which began Aug. 15 with a new Battle Pass for players to earn in-game rewards. Season one brings a variety of new Warner Animated and DC characters, modes and other content to the franchise, which is developed by Player First Games.

Morty Smith (“Rick and Morty”) will join the roster on Aug. 23, while Black Adam (DC), Stripe (Gremlins), and Rick Sanchez (“Rick and Morty”), among other heroes and personalities will be added in the coming months. New modes will also be coming to the game as part of season one, including Classic Arcade and Ranked modes.

The MultiVersus open beta is available now as a free download for the PlayStation 4 and 5 consoles, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One consoles and PC with full cross-play support and dedicated server-based rollback for online competition.

The game features a team-based two-vs.-two format combined with an all-star cast of DC characters, including Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, Harley Quinn; Shaggy and Velma (“Scooby-Doo”); Bugs Bunny and Tasmanian Devil a.k.a. Taz (“Looney Tunes”); Arya Stark (“Game of Thrones”); Tom and Jerry; Jake the Dog and Finn the Human (“Adventure Time”); Steven Universe and Garnet (“Steven Universe”); the Iron Giant; LeBron James (Space Jam: A New Legacy); and original creature Reindog, among others.

Games were a strong contributor to Warner Bros. Discovery’s second-quarter studio segment fiscal results (ended June 30) behind the release of Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga.
