If we asked what it would look like an anthology fight to a 10-year-old child in the 2000s, the description would probably be close to experience by MultiVersusthe platform fighter of Warner Bros. Gsouls who are about to enter closed alpha.
Unveiled last November, the title largely inspired by Super Smash. Bros – he is not the first, he will not be the last – clearly has the same vocation to put all your favorite heroes in the same fight, whether you’re a fan by DC Comics, Looney Tunes, of series Cartoon Network Where from Lord of the Rings. Yes, Gandalf will be able to put on mandalas at the Iron Giant.
Casually, it’s also a bit like that the Metaverse : capitalize on your nostalgia to make it a bunch of licenses that we appreciate in a somewhat shameful way. Although it should include Game of Thrones shoehorned, the series with global success which is not really known to appeal to children. So if in addition we canonize hackneyed memes like Sammy Ultra-instinct…
In any case, Warner continues to pamper your friends with the help of actors official voiceovers in the majority of cases, and that, it’s nice (although the sound mix of the trailer doesn’t do it justice).
Although it is possible to participate in duels or 4-player battles in mode each for his applewith its gameplay archetypes (attack, defense, specialist) and their often utilitarian skillsMultiVersus is clearly meant to be played in 2 against 2 and could reserve surprises.
It remains to be seen whether free-to-play will have enough appeal beyond its prestigious licenses to hold the attention of players. They can get a first opinion from May 19 in a first closed alpha session by registering on the official website. An open beta is already scheduled for julywhile the full release is expected for later this year on PC, Xbox consoles and PlayStation.
