Characters from Game of Thrones, Looney Tunes, the DC Universe, Scooby-Doo, and a variety of other franchises will appear in the game.
Imagine pitting Superman, Arya Stark, Bugs Bunny, and Shaggy against each other in the Batcave, attempting to kick each other off the screen. Multiversus, a new fighting game from Warner Bros., will make this feasible very soon.
Warner Bros. has finally confirmed most of the rumors (1, 2) surrounding its new fighting game by launching the reveal trailer of Multiversus. Like the prominent Super Smash Bros. player HungryBox wrote, Multiversus is Warner Bros. new platform fighting game where players fight in team-based 2v2 and 4-player free-for-all matches with characters from WB franchises.
Multiversus will feature characters from the DC Universe, including Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, and Harley Quinn, as well as characters from the Steven Universe, including Steven himself and Garnet, and Adventure Time, featuring Finn and Jake. Bugs Bunny from Looney Tunes, Tom and Jerry (single character), Arya Stark from Game of Thrones, Shaggy from Scooby-Doo, and the game’s original Reindog are among the other characters on the first roster.
Characters from new franchises and universes currently featured in the game are likely to join the lineup. Considering how Multiversus looks, we don’t expect to see Scorpion or Sub-Zero from Mortal Kombat in it, but Harry Potter characters would fit in quite nicely.
Multiversus incorporates voice acting from many notable performers that worked in these franchises, according to Tony Huynh, co-founder of Play First Games and game director of Multiversus. Kevin Conroy (Batman), Tara Strong (Harley Quinn), John DiMaggio (Jake the Dog), Jeremy Shada (Finn), Matthew Lillard (Shaggy), and Maisie Williams are just a few of the many examples (Arya Stark).
Multiversus will enable cross-play and cross-progression, as well as leaderboards, dedicated servers, and rollback netcode, according to the game director. Multiversus will be available for free on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Windows PC, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S in 2022. We expected to see Switch in the list of platforms, but unfortunately, the console isn’t present, at least for now.
