Unlike traditional fighting games, MultiVersus bets on a two-way format, with a strong focus on online competition. This is also reflected in interpersonal skill sets that focus on collaboration. There is also the possibility to participate in singles matches or even a singles match for up to four players.

According to the developer, the goal is to feed the game with new content every season, including characters, game modes, and skins. Closed Trials have also brought a preview of a Fortnite-like Battle Pass system, which guarantees rewards as you level up.

The game will use a net undo code to ensure better quality of online matches for players, as well as support cross progression across all platforms. This means that it will be possible to pair matches and transfer saved data regardless of the platform.

The take you We tested the alpha version of the game on PS5, where we detected terminal drops in FPS, as well as some bugs. Among them, what bothered me the most was the locking of menus, since it was necessary to restart the game to continue playing. On the other hand, the problems are small when compared to the colorful graphics and characters full of charisma, which are more interesting due to the unusual combinations of powers and abilities.

Another aspect that should please the most detail is the dubbing (in English) of the character lines, which were done with the voices of the original actors. But it is worth noting that the game will also feature Portuguese dubbing.

In alpha, the game came with four distinct modes. The first is 1vs1, where the champions face off individually, while team combat is the option with two teams of players. There is also co-op versus AI, which is also done in pairs, but against the same game, and TCT, where 4 players face each other in the midst of general mayhem.

Among these, the match in duo is highlighted, which is recommended by the game itself. It is the best way to take advantage of the central proposal of the game, which is to combine the skills of characters from different worlds and create synergies between them. That’s of course, not to mention the comedic part of seeing Wonder Woman and Shaggy, for example, work as a team.

However, as in games with similar suggestions, such as Brawlhalla and Super Smash Bros. itself, the direction of team combat can be very confusing, especially for players unfamiliar with the genre. The game uses colors to mark the teams in an effort to improve visualization, but amid the chaos and visual effects of the abilities, keeping your eyes on the characters can be problematic even with the feature.

With a good set of characters, a dynamic fighting structure and plenty of charisma, MultiVersus proved to be very promising, even with the above problems (after all, it’s still an alpha version). The fun and strategic game is a good choice for those who want to enjoy a free fighting game with friends.
