Multiversus Open Beta Launching July 26th, plus Iron Giant Update
MultiVersus is an upcoming Smash Bros-style game that has the fighting game esports community pretty excited. The title brings in characters from various media franchises and lets you duke it out with them all. The gameplay is reminiscent of Nintendo’s crossover fighter. We already have Multiversus tournaments at EVO, along with major players like SonicFox and some Smash players intending on competing.
Any development closer to release is good news here, and we’ve just heard about the MultiVersus Open Beta launching pretty soon. Hopefully the much covered Taz nerfs are coming with it.
MultiVersus Open Beta & Twitch Drops
The MultiVersus game has been in a closed-off beta for a little while now. Some players have had the chance to check out limited areas of gameplay from the game, including multiple characters. Things have been limited so far though.
The Open Beta is going to massively expand this out though. This will move the title into its next phase. A lot more people are going to be able to play with this stage of the game. The new MultiVersus Open Beta is going to be opening up on July 19th. Most people will be able to access this version of the game eventually. It’s irrelevant whether they were in previous early access groups.
This will be a soft launch for the game. It’s going to be available on PC, PlayStation, and Xbox. Being on every platform other than Switch means everyone has a Smash Bros-style game they can play through.
To sign up for early access, players can register on the MultiVersus website. There will also be Twitch drops between July 19 and 26 for access to the game.
MultiVersus Open Beta Content
The Open Beta of the game is going to gradually grow in size as it progresses. The game won’t have its full roster just yet. However, it does have more content than it had previously. This includes the Iron Giant being added into the game with the latest update! The latest character has some Superman-inspired moves, even while joining Superman himself on the roster.
The Open Beta content will have regular updates with more characters and other features being added. Since the title is free-to-play, this will help maintain hype for the game even in its early stages.
When Does it Launch?
The MultiVersus Open Beta has a few details we still don’t know. That includes the actual end date of the beta! There is going to be a Battle Pass and player progression eventually. However, we don’t know if it’ll carry over into the main game when it launches.
The beta is going to be running indefinitely. We don’t have a firm date on when it’ll end and the game will release. The title is supposed to be releasing at some point later this year. That does raise the possibility that the game will be in Early Access until it is released in full. That’s not uncommon for some Early Access games and it could help to keep MultiVersus in the public eye as it gets towards its full release.
