March MultiVersus Updates – Patch 1.22 Changes

New MultiVersus updates have started for March. There are a few new changes coming but nothing in the way of events and characters so far. MultiVersus Update 1.22 is our first for March and things have slowed down a little bit. This is largely moving things around with some minor alterations. You aren’t going to find huge sweeping changes to every character.

This update also doesn’t feature a new event, character, or big addition. Usually, MultiVersus has had something new to show with each of the updates. Characters being added to the MultiVersus roster have already slowed down considerably, but the MultiVersus 1.22 update does have a few alterations that will change how you play each character.

These are all of the alterations with patch 1.22, and when we can expect more substantial additions to the game.

MultiVersus Patch Notes 1.22

  • Null tier removed from Ranked mode on PlayStation.
  • Bots that substitute a disconnected player will no longer be invulnerable.
  • Superman’s sniper punch replication bug has been fixed.
  • Morty’s recall invincibility removed

As you can tell, this has been a pretty minor patch. Is this a sign of things to come from the game though?

Are MultiVersus Updates Slowing Down?

Updates to the MultiVersus game do seem to have gotten slower this year. The original promise of new characters every few weeks is a long way off right now, as is the old commitment to free character rotation changes. The game is barely getting content every month and Season 3 is still quite a while away.

MultiVersus has definitely dropped off in terms of player count since it launched. More recently, new owners at Warner Bros seem to have added even more uncertainty to the game. For now, MultiVersus devs still seem committed to the game even at a reduced pace. It looks like the MultiVersus updates might not be flying into the game as they used to though.

When Will MultiVersus Get Its Next Update?

The next MultiVersus update with a substantial batch of new content will probably be Season 3. This was originally supposed to launch February 14th. However, it has had some delays. It’s not going to be launching towards the end of march or potentially later.

Hopefully, MultiVersus updates will return strong with Season 3. We do seem to be in a bit of a lull until then though. Fans will have to wait and see when the next update hits and what it brings to the game.

MultiVersus ValentiNeon Update

The second big update of 2023 is here with the ValentiNeon event! This one of the MultiVersus updates is a major change for February. There’s a new event with Valentine’s themed content, but also more general changes to how characters handle that you’ll need to look through if you want to stay on top of everything. Most characters have had big alterations, including Batman in MultiVersus going 2D!

These are all of the big changes in the MultiVersus ValentiNeon update.

ValentiNeon – MultiVersus Updates

MultiVersus Updates - ValentiNeon

This is a new update for MultiVersus in 2023 and a new event.

If you can log in for the full 30 days of the event, you’ll get rewards for each time you get into the game. These are candy hearts. It’s a new currency which you can use in a special event shop. These are the new cosmetics that you can find in the Candy Shop.

You can earn Candy Hearts through login rewards. Although, there are other ways to get them through playing the game during this one of the MultiVersus updates. This is a breakdown of how you can get Candy Hearts.

  • 100 Candy Hearts – Your first daily win.
  • 15 Candy Hearts – For each toast that you get.

In Singles and FTA

  • 20 Candy Hearts – Each 1s Win

If you log in for most of the event, then you can get yourself enough candy hearts to get most of these rewards. You’ll need to prioritize though if you only log in for a few days of the tournament ValentiNeon event though.

New Game Mode in ValentiNeon MultiVersus Updates – Heart Breaker

This one of the MultiVersus updates includes a brand-new Silly Queue game mode! It’s based around Valentine’s day with unique rules that should make it more fun.

This is how the new mode is going to work.

  • Heart collectables spawn around the Battlefield.
  • Collect the hearts, when you hit the max stack you’ll be able to use the Heart Wave Attack which deals a lot of damage to players around you.
  • Knockback makes you lose a heart.

Ranked Mode Returns

The MultiVersus Ranked Mode is making a return with this update! It’s coming back so players can once again see how they stack up against the other players out there. Ranked Mode is a great pick if you’re focusing on perfecting characters high in the MultiVersus tier list. This has come back with the recent MultiVersus updates with these changes.

  • Duplicate character teams aren’t allowed anymore. Teammates must select unique characters.
  • Map Pools for Ranked mode are now in the game. Only select maps are useable, all with their hazards disabled. These are the available maps for players in this update.

Controller Options on PC

MultiVersus crossplay means players on all platforms get to play, but this new feature is PC exclusive. Players on Steam are going to be able to start using keyboards for the game natively! This should help to expand the number of players who can jump into the game with this MultiVersus update. This is how you can set it up.

  • Rick click MultiVersus in your Steam library
  • Select Properties
  • Type “-multikeyboard” into the launch options.

The Controller options enable you to play multiplayer with multiple keyboards too. Players can do multiplayer all on one PC with just keyboards now!

Past MultiVersus Updates

Lunar New Year

The new year is bringing loads of new updates for MultiVersus. There’s potential for some big changes coming and some of the most requested features coming soon. These are all of the MultiVersus updates from January and new events in the game.

Lunar New Year Multiversus

New Years’ MultiVersus Update

MultiVersus has so far had an update schedule that puts most of the other top fighting games to shame. There are new MultiVersus characters and even more coming constantly with this game. It can be tricky to stay on top of all of the MultiVersus updates in January or any other month. The game has a rate of content that’s closer to shooters like Fortnite than the rest of the top fighting games.

Our most recent MultiVersus update has been the Year of the Rabbit event! This was the first event back for the game after the Christmas break. These are all of the changes from this update. Starting with a double Battle Pass XP event starting January 18.

New Map Added – Treefort Single Platform

MultiVersus Updates

This is a new map that’s come in this update. It’s based around the Treefort House where Jake and Finn live in Adventure Time. The map is designed for four players. There are platforms at different levels for more varied play. Ground space is relatively sparse though, so it’s a dangerous design with plenty of features to get vertical.

There’s a 2-v-2 single platform coming too. The Treefort will be available in four-play queues with this MultiVersus update.

Scooby’s Mansion – New Look in January MultiVersus Updates

January MultiVersus Updates

The roofless version of Scooby’s Mansion has had a bit of a redesign. This is a nice change for the map and it’s making it look just as polished as the others in the game.

Lunar New Year Event MultiVersus Update

This is the big part of this latest addition to MultiVersus. We’re getting a Lunar New Year event! This is MultiVersus’ newest in-game event with free cosmetics and rewards for playing MultiVersus through the start of 2023.

Players can log in every day to get rewards. Heading into the game for 14 days is going to make sure you’re getting all of the possible Lunar New Year login rewards. That includes a New Year skin, a banner, ringout, and profile icons.
