MultiVersus has finally embarked on its maiden voyage with season one. The new battle pass is available in both free and paid variants. Developer Player First Games has also announced two new fighters.
Season One features several additions to MultiVersus, including character balancing, more attainable battle pass requirements, and new free characters in the rotation (including Arya, Batman, LeBron James, and Steven Universe). Player First also plans to add Classic Arcade Mode and a new Ranked Mode in Season One.
As part of the Season One launch, Warner Bros has also announced two more characters for the roster: DC Comics’ Black Adam and Stripe from Gremlins. The two will be rolled out to players in the coming months. The two fighters have previously appeared in leaked rosters. In addition, Morty Smith from Rick & Morty will join the roster on August 23.
Warner Bros. has not confirmed when Black Adam or Stripe will be released. Presumably, Adam’s addition will coincide with the character’s eponymous DCEU film, which is due out in October. MultiVersus director Tony Huynh confirmed on Twitter that both will be rolled out during season one. Rick Sanchez is another character who will be joining later in the season.
