MultiVersus gameplay details

The devs at Player First Games (PFG) confirmed MultiVersus features rollback netcode to “provide the best online experience possible.” This was celebrated by the fighting game community, as it has become standard for the genre.

PFG also revealed some big changes from the beta’s gameplay with two additions: Dash attacks and Parry Time. “Dash attack is an intuitive combat entry that can quickly close the distance between you and your opponent,” reads its official description. Players can use this attack to start or end a combo, as well as to escape from a sticky situation.

The biggest addition is the Parry, which allows players to counterattack. However, as is common in fighting games, missing the Parry window can leave you in a worse position than before, so players will need to master its timing. The devs added these elements to keep the dynamic gameplay while adding more tools for players to attack and defend in battle.

All MultiVersus stages

Since MultiVersus mixes many popular franchises, stages are also an important element in the experience, and here are all the arenas in the game:

  • Batcave (DC)
  • Cromulans (Rick and Morty)
  • Dexter’s Laboratory
  • Scooby-Doo’s Haunted Mansion (Scooby-Doo)
  • Sky Arena (Steven Universe)
  • The City of Townsville (Powerpuff Girls)
  • The Court (Space Jam)
  • Throne Room (Game of Thrones)
  • Training Room
  • Tree Fort (Adventure Time)
  • Trophy E.D.G.E.

MultiVersus Rifts Mode: PvE explained

The Rifts PvE mode is part of MultiVersus at launch, and Game Director and Player First Games co-founder Tony Huynh revealed the “new mode will introduce additional ways of playing with unique rewards.”

On May 16, PFG revealed an overview of the PvE mode that “allows players to travel the multiverse and fight their way through a series of encounters flavored by wacky combat mutators and unique experiences.”

MultiVersus Rifts PvE Mode
Each Rift will feature specific themes, skins, challenges, and mutators.

Each Rift has a series of fights players need to complete alongside challenges and mini-games of different natures called Nodes. All Rifts follow a specific theme that prompts unique interactions between characters, building on the MultiVersus “story.”

Rifts will get harder the more you progress through them, and they’ll have seasonal content that will rotate regularly. Players can train their skills outside PvP in battles with modifiers called mutators. Rifts will also include Boss Battles to end each Rift with a bang.

MultiVersus players can earn Stars by completing Nodes on Rifts and clearing side objectives. Lastly, Gems will allow you to power up different aspects of your fighters. Gems can be for Offense, Defense, or Utility, and if you unlock the same one more than once, you’ll be able to level it up to get better modifiers.

All MultiVersus trailers

After a lot of content released during the MultiVersus beta, Player First Games released the Joker’s official trailer on May 8, 2024.

Then, on May 20, 2024, PFG confirmed Jason Voorhees and Agent Smith as playable characters with the Official Launch Trailer:
