MultiVersus release date

  • MultiVersus will be released on Tuesday, May 28 2024.
  • MultiVersus is available on S4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, Steam, and the Epic Games Store.

Now we have a new release date for MultiVersus in 2024, along with a new mode, more characters, and extra changes. Made by Warner Bros, the free-to-play platform fighter videogame MultiVersus was previously released with purchasable editions despite the developer’s open beta claim. Soon after, it was taken offline and removed from stores and this ‘open beta’ period ended ten months after it launched in May 2023. Many were rightfully ticked off as, although free-to-play, there were purchasable editions along with purchasable currency to get skins. The 2024 release date is drawing closer, and there are exciting new additions to whet the appetites of returning fans and newcomers.

When is the MultiVersus 2024 release date?

MultiVersus will be released on Tuesday, May 28 2024. This is the game’s return after being taken offline in 2023. This date has been confirmed by the official Multiversus Twitter account, which includes a video address from the Game Director and Co-Founder, Tony Huynh. With the launch date set, you’ll soon be able to live out your dream fights with a roster including characters from Scooby-Doo, Game of Thrones, and Space Jam: A New Legacy.

In this video address, it’s confirmed that the game is returning and that it will be free to play once more. He says the team has learned a lot from the community’s feedback during the ‘open beta,’ and that the development team has been hard at work creating an experience that leaves a mark on the platform fighter genre.

New MultiVersus 2024 mode

One of the exciting changes for MultiVersus in 2024 is a brand new PvE mode. Before the game was just PvP as 1v1 or 2v2, but now it is set to introduce a PvE mode that will offer a new way to play. Unfortunately, the game director doesn’t offer any more insight than PvP offering a new way to play with unique rewards.

Aside from the introduction of a new PvP mode, it’s also confirmed that the game has switched from Unreal Engine 4 to Unreal Engine 5. This will improve the visuals and likeness of the characters. The specific example cited by the game director Tony Huynh is Shaggy Sandwiches looking better than ever.

What fans of the fighting genre will love to hear most of all is that the game has been completely rebuilt to support a new netcode. This will provide ‘consistent, world-class online play so everything kick, dodge, and Batarang will be delivered with pinpoint accuracy’. The promise is that there will be consistent game performance no matter your platform.
