MultiVersus Season 1 – Everything We Know!

MultiVersus hit the gaming market like a storm. The direct competitor of Smash Bros. gained a lot of popularity. And, it seems fans can’t get enough of its quirky characters and gameplay. Thereby, MultiVersus Season 1 has been a huge topic lately.

Until recently, we only knew that the first season would arrive soon. They also shared a preview of what we can expect from it.

Unfortunately, they had to delay the season just a few days ago. This left players waiting for a further announcement other than “soon”. It was originally supposed to arrive on August 9. But, it was quickly postponed to an unknown date.

Fortunately, that seems to be a thing of the past. As Polygon and other media reported, we just heard about it. And it’s much sooner than expected!

MultiVersus Season 1 Release Date Just Confirmed

In a recent tweet from the company, we got confirmation. The new season of MultiVersus will arrive on August 15. This only leaves players three days to prepare for whatever it has to offer!

However, not everything will fall on the same day. As far as we know, only the Battle Pass and its rewards will be available initially. For example, the Morty character is set to release on the 23rd. We’ll probably have to wait for more announcements in the future.

Of course, that doesn’t mean there’s little to enjoy in the new season. The game already has a lot of characters with unique mechanics. And, the new season will see content coming throughout its duration.

New characters are coming to the game

Easily the most anticipated part of MultiVersus Season 1 is the addition of rick and morty. The two characters are a major motivation behind the recent season. And, we now know that Morty will arrive on the 23rd.

For the character of Morty, some media have reported that he would be a murderer. He will also be of expert level. It will therefore not be an easy character to master. Still, some might agree that tougher characters are more rewarding.

As for Rick, we don’t know anything about his release date. We only know that he will come at some point during the first season. But, we know he will be a mage/ranged character. So it could work similarly to Bugs Bunny.

The dawn of Classic Arcade and Ranked game modes

But that’s not all. The new season will also bring two new game modes to the title. We still don’t know if they will be available at the start of the new season. Still, they will bring a lot of spice to the game.

First up we have Classic Arcade. This is easily the most mysterious addition between the two game modes. Some believe it will pit players against the AI. Others think it will be a progression mode, like Mortal Kombat’s Tower modes.

Then we ranked. It will include a competitive leaderboard for players to show off their skills. We don’t know exactly how it will work. It can be a 1v1 game mode or include multiple fighters. But you can expect him to pit you against similarly skilled players.

MultiVersus Season 1 Battle Pass Available For Players

Finally, we have the upcoming battle pass for the new season. Right now, we can say it will be bigger than what players got at launch. And it will cost around 950 Gleamium.

The battle pass will feature several tear-sorted cosmetics and items. The battle pass will bring new character icons, banners, and skins.
