Well it happened. After all the hype, and teaser videos, and massive roster additions, Warner Bros. Interactive Finally released Multiverse, your favorite Warner Bros. The long-awaited character-based platformer was released on May 28 for PS4/5, Xbox One/Series, and PC/Steam, and I had a pretty good session for this first installment.

First, the game is free to play, and fully cross-play, which means you can play it on everything, full cross-play with rollback, and cross-progression, meaning a Every time you log into your Warner Bros. account, your progress comes with it. Even your progress in Beta. Some of this has been changed, but more on that later. You also receive a special gift of being faithful. How fun is that?

All the beta characters are here, including the Iron Giant, and Velma, so sorry for your early losses. WB went on to add The Joker (Batman), Jason Voorhees (Friday the 13th), Kyle Gard (Adventure Time) and, to be added later, Agent Smith (The Matrix). This opens the door to all possibilities, as LeBron James is here from Space Jam 2 as well as Arya Stark. I’d be lying if I didn’t say I wasn’t excited to see who was coming next.

One of the shiny and new additions to the game are Rifts. It’s player vs enemy mode to unlock more items and gain fighter pass experience. These also surround a character in the game. You can choose harder, more difficult, more rewards. And some of them even come with daily rewards. With each fight, you can earn more rewards by completing match requirements, such as multiple down attacks, and fights with DC characters. These battles can be 1v1, 1v2, or even sometimes mini-games like smashing targets, and shooting balloons. At the end of each rift is a boss, and once you defeat the boss, you can earn points. If you get enough points, you can unlock Agent Smith two weeks before it’s released later this season. You can play it with a friend with couch co-op, or even online, which is great!

The amount of currency, perhaps most compelling. There is Gleamium, which is the premium currency. There is Warrior Currency, Prestige Currency, and Money Currency. All of these buy different items for your character and custom profile options. Some of these options come in packs, so you can easily buy a bundle for the Gleamium you already have. The costumes, backgrounds, taunts, and even the announcer’s voice are all here. However, none of them improve your game except gems. Gems help you through the cracks. You just have to have the right gems for the streams to be effective. Chaos gems only work in chaos, and so on and so forth. Buy them before you start cracking. Makes them very easy and manageable.

Fighters Pass will automatically upgrade to Premium Pass, but only if you played the beta years ago. If you didn’t, that’s okay. You might not need it right now, unless you’re into that kind of thing. Another development is the development of individual fighters. The more fighters you use, the more currency and items will unlock for that particular character. The game wants to constantly reward you in every way possible, just for playing the game. In my opinion this is what will keep the multiverse alive for a very long time. It’s a bit of a grind, but it’s free to play.

It’s still Smash Bros. is slower than, but I think it’s ok. There are still some problematic characters, like the Iron Giant, and Link, Finn in my Warner Bros. version, but I think there’s something here for everyone. I streamed it for two and a half hours, and I didn’t even realize I’d been playing that long. The game is very impressive. They really did it. I had very low expectations for this game, and now, I want to push it to its limits. Multiverse has the potential for that lasting Fortnite magic, and I can’t wait to see what they come up with next. Joker, and Jason definitely put me on edge. Not bad WB. not bad. If you want to see more gameplay, check out the video below. We will be streaming it often, because all my friends love it. It’s definitely growing on me. Poison ivy? please?
