MultiVersus, a platform fighter featuring Warner Bros. properties, joins the fight. WB’s 2D fighter joins the increasingly crowded genre that’s seen games like Brawlhalla, Brawlout, and Nickelodeon All-Stars try to stake their claim as the best license-based platform fighter on the market. Although crossplay is slowly becoming an industry standard, the feature is far from a guarantee in the genre.
Fortunately, MultiVersus features full crossplay support across every platform. This means PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, and PC users can play together with no limits. Unlike some other games that implement the feature well after release, MultiVersus’ crossplay will be enabled at launch. Cross-progression is also included in the mix, letting players carry progress over between platforms at will. This barrier-free multiplayer is held together by dedicated servers featuring rollback netcode.
MultiVersus differentiates itself from Super Smash Bros. and other games of its type by focusing on two versus two team battles. Unlike the genre’s usual free-for-all, players are working together as a team, changing the traditional dynamic. This teamwork-centric gameplay includes cooperative abilities, however, users also have the option of playing solo if they prefer. Either way, the developers are looking to shake things up in a crowded genre.
