Whilst us Superman fans are still patiently waiting for a new solo Superman game, we now have ‘MultiVersus’, which is a free to play platform fighting game filled with iconic characters from legendary universes. Yes, that includes Superman and numerous other DC Comics characters.
‘MultiVersus‘ which is developed by Player First Games is set to introduce team based 2 vs 2 formatting, and will be combined with an ever-expending cast of iconic characters and universes. Here’s just a taste of some of the characters that will be involved in the game: Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Harley Quinn, Shaggy (Scooby-Doo), Bugs Bunny (Looney Tunes), Arya Stark (Game Of Thrones), Tom and Jerry, Jake The Dog and Finn The Human (Adventure Time) and Steven Universe. Personally I love the idea of these incredibly varied characters going head to head against each other. Shaggy Vs Superman? Yes please.
Here’s a look at what you can expect from ‘MultiVersus‘:
It has been revealed that each and every fighter will have a set of combat mechanics, allowing for customisable movesets that combine dynamically with other characters as they battle for supremacy. For example, Wonder Woman will have her Lasso Of Truth to attack characters, Superman will have laser vision, Shaggy will have his sandwich projectile attack, whilst Arya Stark will use face-swapping to her advantage. I genuinely cannot believe these attacks and characters are in the same video game. I love it! The game will have the option to unlock multiple alternate costumes for each character, with at least one being confirmed for Superman at present, a Black Lantern Superman skin.
Players will have a range of options in regard to game play, from intense 1 on 1 clashes, to a 4 player free for all mode where one fighter come out on top.
Here is the official trailer for ‘MultiVersus‘:
One thing that I’m incredibly excited for when it comes to this new ‘MultiVersus’ announcement is the incredible voice talent behind the characters. The most important for us Superman fans is the return of George Newbern as Superman, who voiced the character in Justice League vs the Fatal Five and also in Injustice 2. We also have Kevin Conroy returning as Batman and Tara Strong as Harley Quinn.
‘MultiVersus‘ is set for worldwide release in 2022 on the following platforms: PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One and PC with full cross play support, a dedicated server-based rollback net code and content-filled seasons.
