It’s interesting to note that all this success only takes into account the data of the PC version of the game. The beta is also available on other platforms and the game includes support crossplay, which ensures the unification of the whole society. In other words, its player base is even bigger, even before this launch. See the numbers below:

  • MultiVersus – More than 62,000
  • Dragon Ball FighterZ – 44,303
  • Mortal Kombat 11 – 35 147
  • Bruhlala – 34 816
  • Guilty Gear Strive – 31 156
  • Tekken 7 – 18,966
  • Mortal Kombat X – 15 743
  • Street Fighter 5 – 14 783
  • Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl – 13,314

Developer Player First Games has already promised changes to the game, which launches this Tuesday (26), highlighting the addition of LeBron James, the basketball player and star of the latest Space Jam movie, as a playable character. All progress made by players will be carried over to the final version, which does not yet have a release date.

In addition, the developer has already confirmed that Rick and Morty, the characters from the HBO Max series of the same name, will also be added to the cast in the first season of the content. The goal is to release new characters periodically, allowing players to unlock them.

Warner Bros. Also wants to contribute to the competitive landscape of MultiVersus. The game will be one of the highlights of EVO 2022, the new edition of the world’s largest fighting game event, which will take place from August 5 to 7. The tournament will be held in pairs and promises a total prize fund of 100 thousand USD – about 550 thousand R$ at the current price. It should be remembered that Nintendo chose not to participate in this year’s edition with Super Smash Bros., historically the highest-grossing game at the event.
