An official release date for MultiVersus Season 1 and new playable character Morty have finally been revealed after multiple delays.
The year’s wackiest crossover brawler, MultiVersus, will bring iconic heroes from different franchises into one place for the first time. Batman, Bugs Bunny, Steven Universe, Rick and Morty, and more will battle in duos to be the best. MultiVersus testing waves have been smashing successes as players eagerly await new content for season 1. After a brief delay, the developer has announced the official release date.
MultiVersus will now go live on August 15, but Morty won’t be available to play right off the bat.
When is Morty coming to MultiVersus?
Morty will be the first character to be added after the official release, but he won’t be available until August 23.
After adding Lebron James to the active roster, the developer announced Morty for season 1 of MultiVersus. Rick and Morty have a history of touring different realities together, but they’re coming as separate characters in MultiVersus. Morty will be a bruiser in MultiVersus, joining the likes of Taz, Batman, and more. Those who have tested all 17 characters were eager to try out Morty, but they’ll still have to wait.
After pushing back the official release date, the devs have revealed that Morty won’t be playable immediately. Instead, players will have to run the same 17 characters for the first two weeks of the game. On August 23, Morty will enter the roster. Other content will be spread across the season.
Instead of rolling out new content all at once on August 15, the developer is taking a different approach. Everything planned for season 1 will not drop on the same day. New modes and content will be spread through the life of the season. Arcade, ranked, new characters, and skins will be added as the season progresses.
What platforms will the MultiVersus be available on?
MultiVersus will be available to play on August 15 on PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, and PC via Steam. It will have full cross-play and cross-progression support across all platforms.
