'MultiVersus' Reveals LeBron James, Rick Sanchez And Morty Smith As Playable Characters - Trailer

MultiVersus is an all-new free-to-play, platform fighter that introduces a team-based 2 vs. 2 format combined with an ever-expanding cast of iconic characters and legendary universes.

MultiVersus will showcase a variety of beloved heroes and personalities to team up with or compete against in epic battles, including Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman and Harley Quinn (DC Super Heroes & DC Super-Villains); Shaggy (Scooby-Doo); Bugs Bunny (Looney Tunes); Arya Stark (Game of Thrones); Tom and Jerry (Tom and Jerry); Jake the Dog and Finn the Human (Adventure Time); Steven Universe and Garnet (Steven Universe); an extraordinary original creature named Reindog; and many more to come.

Featuring matches with a strong emphasis on online cooperative gameplay, every fighter will be outfitted with a deep set of combat mechanics that distinguish the game’s fresh take on 2 vs. 2 gameplay. This allows combatants to boast customizable movesets that combine dynamically with other characters as they battle for supremacy. From Wonder Woman and her Lasso of Truth attack being unexpectedly paired with Shaggy and his sandwich projectile, to Arya Stark’s face-swapping ability being used to complement Superman’s laser vision, the impossible can become possible through surprising team combinations and matchups. The game’s fun filled multiplayer bouts can be set against the backdrop of various reimagined environments from awe-inspiring worlds, such as Batman’s Batcave, Jake and Finn’s Tree Fort and many others. MultiVersus will also include intense 1 vs. 1 clashes and a 4-player free-for-all mode where only one fighter can come out on top.

Additionally, MultiVersus will feature an all-star cast of talent lending their voices to the game, including Kevin Conroy (Batman: The Animated Series, Batman: Arkham series) as Batman, George Newbern (Justice League vs. the Fatal Five, Injustice 2) as Superman, Abby Trott (Carmen Sandiego) as Wonder Woman, Tara Strong (Batman Ninja, Batman: Arkham series) as Harley Quinn, Matthew Lillard (Scooby-Doo) as Shaggy, Eric Bauza (Looney Tunes Cartoons) as Bugs Bunny and Tom and Jerry, Maisie Williams (Game of Thrones) as Arya Stark, John DiMaggio (Adventure Time) as Jake the Dog, Jeremy Shada (Adventure Time) as Finn the Human, Daniel DiVenere (Spirit Riding Free) as Steven Universe, Estelle (Steven Universe) as Garnet and Andrew Frankel (Jellystone) as Reindog.


MultiVersus will be adding three new characters to the game’s ever-expanding roster of heroes and personalities, including basketball superstar LeBron James (Space Jam: A New Legacy), along with Rick Sanchez and Morty Smith from the popular animated series, Rick and Morty. 

The new gameplay trailer provides a first look at LeBron James in-game, featuring his likeness and sporting his uniform from the Space Jam: A New Legacy film. In MultiVersus, LeBron is the ultimate teammate who can adapt to any playstyle, coupled with his unbeatable basketball moves, from dunks and alley-oops to assists and ball ricochets, and more. LeBron will be playable when the MultiVersus Open Beta begins on July 26.

Rick Sanchez, the mega-genius scientist, will bring a number of abilities to MultiVersus, many of which utilize his signature portal gun and can be strategically combined with his other tricks, like summoning Meeseeks. Morty Smith, Rick’s teenage grandson and sidekick on countless adventures, will have a mix of skills with an emphasis on projectiles and counter moves, including grenade weapons and the ability to whip himself at opponents. Morty will be available when MultiVersus Season 1 begins on Aug. 9. Rick will also be part of Season 1; his release timing will be confirmed at a later date.

The MultiVersus Open Beta will be available on July 26 for PS5 and PS4 consoles, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One consoles, and PC.

Early Access to the Open Beta is now available for players who previously participated in the MultiVersus Closed Alpha, as well as those who receive a code via Twitch Drops.

Players can also gain Early Access to the Open Beta by purchasing a MultiVersus Founder’s Pack, which includes different levels of in-game content via the Standard, Deluxe, and Premium Editions.

MultiVersus is coming to PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S and PC in 2022 with full cross-play support, dedicated server-based rollback netcode and content-filled seasons.
