Lebron James will be dunking on MultiVerus players starting next week, and Rick and Morty seem to have found a portal gun to sneak their way in later on. The developers at Player First Games showcased the newest gameplay with a phenomenal trailer, proving that they aren't slowing down on adding to the game's roster.

Anyone who absolutely loves fighting games or Super Smash Bros will definitely be a fan of this game, as the gameplay is quite similar. The free-to-play cross-over platform-fighter features some of the most well-known cartoon characters, super-heroes, real-life celebrities, and more, making the game extremely enticing and filled with content. The game features free-for-all, 2v2, and 1v1 content, but the focus seems to be primarily on the 2v2 aspect. The characters players will be able to take into hardcore battle include Jake the Dog, Batman, Harley Quinn, The Iron Giant, and even Bugs Bunny!

Lebron James will be wearing the infamous uniform from Space Jam, all while taking opponents head-on with his legendary basketball skills as they try to evade his alley-oops and ricochets. Rick Sanchez will be porting all over the battlefield, smashing opponents with his sharp tongue and keen wit, as well as a few MeeSeeks boxes. Mort, Rick's awkward and shy teenage grandson, will be a completely different character with his own unique abilities. While this will be the first update made to the game, they seem to have really made a slam dunk with this one. Implementing such well-known characters is a great way to start off right.

While there is no release date for Rick Sanchez at this time, Morty seems to be coming on August 9th. Those who had access to the MultiVersus Alpha can start playing as Lebron as early as next week. The open beta will be released to the masses on July 26, 2022, and will be available on platforms such as PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, and PC.
