WB’s latest platform fighter, Multiversus, is the only game at this year’s EVO with a set prize pool. The Multiversus prize pool is set to $100,000, raised by every player who enters the tournament. Since Multiversus at EVO will be a two versus two event, the prize pool should increase significantly by the time it’s over. The winning team will split the grand prize amount, which will be no less than $42,000.
