Warner Bros. Games has announced MultiVersus, a brand-new, free-to-play 2 vs. 2 platform fighter that features a roster comprising some of the company’s most iconic and legendary characters. They include the world’s finest, Batman and Superman, as well as other staples such as Looney Tunes’ Bugs Bunny and Game of Thrones’ Arya Stark. MultiVersus will be released in 2022 for PS5 and PS4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, and PC with full cross-play support, dedicated server-based rollback netcode, and content-filled seasons.

From WB Games:

Featuring matches with a strong emphasis on online cooperative gameplay, every fighter will be outfitted with a deep set of combat mechanics that distinguish the game’s fresh take on 2 vs. 2 gameplay. This allows combatants to boast customizable movesets that combine dynamically with other characters as they battle for supremacy. From Wonder Woman and her Lasso of Truth attack being unexpectedly paired with Shaggy and his sandwich projectile, to Arya Stark’s face-swapping ability being used to complement Superman’s laser vision, the impossible can become possible through surprising team combinations and matchups. The game’s fun filled multiplayer bouts can be set against the backdrop of various reimagined environments from awe-inspiring worlds, such as Batman’s Batcave, Jake and Finn’s Tree Fort and many others. MultiVersus will also include intense 1 vs. 1 clashes and a 4-player free-for-all mode where only one fighter can come out on top.
