Player First Games and Warner Bros have announced a MultiVersus Season 1 delay. The upcoming launch of the game's first season, as well as the arrival of the new character Morty, will be delayed "to a later date", and we don't yet know when that later date might be.
What's the reason for this MultiVersus Season 1 delay?
This news comes via the official MultiVersus Twitter account. Earlier today, the devs tweeted the news, acknowledging that it might disappoint players but reaffirming a commitment to delivering "new and exciting content" (just not this particular new and exciting content right now, it seems). Unfortunately, though, it looks like you're going to have to wait for the arrival of MultiVersus Season 1, as well as Rick's sidekick Morty, until sometime in the future.
Even though we don't know when Season 1 and Morty will arrive yet, it's not all bad news. The pre-season battle pass for MultiVersus will be extended through August 15th, so you'll have an extra chance to earn the goodies it offers. Player First says the date given by the game won't change, but that the content will be available for an extra week beyond August 8th. That should go some way towards softening the blow of the Season 1 delay.
What is MultiVersus?
MultiVersus is a Super Smash Bros-style platform fighter featuring characters from various Warner Bros franchises. The MultiVersus roster first leaked all the way back in October last year before the game was officially announced the following day. You can play as characters like Adventure Time's Finn and Jake, Steven Universe's titular character and Garnet, and DC heroes like Batman and Superman, duking it out with various special moves and powerups. MultiVersus is in open beta right now and recently received its first major character update, bringing Space Jam 2: A New Legacy star LeBron James into the fold.
You can download and play MultiVersus right now on PC, PlayStation, and Xbox for free. It's a pretty solid alternative to Super Smash Bros, and although it does seem to have a little ways to go before it reaches Nintendo's level of polish, it's exciting to see a roster this jam-packed with great characters anyway.
