MultiVersus Closed Alpha Test & Sign-Ups Now Available; Pro Player Showcase Shared

Warner Bros. Games has announced that the Closed Alpha test for their free-to-play platform fighter, MultiVersus, is now available on PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One consoles, and PC “with full cross-play support and dedicated server-based rollback netcode for robust online competition.”

Intrigued prospective players can apply for a chance to participate in the Closed Alpha test via the official MultiVersus website, which lasts until May 27, 2022, at 5 PM PDT/ 8 PM EDT.

A Pro Player showcase featuring MVD, Lord Knight, ESAM & Light was also published, viewable below:

This title is free-to-play and features characters from several Warner Bros IPs duking it out in 2D combative goodness. Cooperation and teamwork are at the forefront of the gameplay experience.

For instance, each character’s moveset complements the philosophy of teamwork with examples including Batman’s smoke bomb to inhibit the opposing team’s movement capabilities, Steve from Steven Universe emitting protective shields, and Bugs Bunny creating tunnels to create easier team travel across the stage. Still, even with cooperative play being a central focus, solo-play is also claimed to be present.

The playable cast is fully voiced, with their voice actors being recognizable such as Batman being voiced by Kevin Conroy. Cross-Play and Cross-Progression are supported across every platform alongside several social features like Guilds to enhance the general competitive desire. Leaderboards will also be added down the line.

Gameplay quality is a primary focus, with dedicated servers and rollback netcode for online play. Further, content will be continually added, like new characters and skins.

MultiVersus is releasing for PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, and PC in 2022.
