    The Open Beta for MultiVersus will soon come to a depressing end because Player First Games intends to take the free-to-play platform brawler offline in order to get it ready for its full launch early next year. Rick and Morty, Black Adam, and Marvin the Martian are just a few of the well-known WB characters who have joined MultiVersus since its successful Beta launch last summer.

    MultiVersus was regarded as a legitimate Smash Bros. competitor when it first came out thanks to its precise and tight brawler gameplay and a wealth of inventive move sets for each character. This brawler game’s introduction of classes was novel and gave particular characters roles and ideal play styles.

    While assassins Arya Stark and Harley Quinn look for opportunities to backstab for extra damage, mage characters like Rick and Bugs Bunny are strongest at range. As a beta, this provided Player First Games with the chance to observe, solicit feedback, and modify the gameplay. It’s now time for Player First to apply the lessons it has learned over the past few months to the full launch that will take place early next year.

    Tony Huynh, the director of MultiVersus, made the announcement that the Open Beta would end on June 25 and that the game would then be taken offline, halting all future updates.

    Unfortunately, this means that players will no longer be able to play online until the full launch in early 2024. Local matches and offline modes like The Lab’s training room are still accessible. The player progression system will be revised, and all unlocked characters and cosmetics will be carried over to the game’s full launch the following year, according to Tony Huynh.

    It will be interesting to see how progression is changed and whether the distinctive, though contentious, perks system is kept. With this step towards a full launch, it’s also possible that MultiVersus’ status as a free-to-play game will be compromised. Players currently have to purchase Gleamium or earn gold coins by participating in matches in order to unlock characters. It will be interesting to see if this unlock system changes given the promise of even more characters being added to the roster upon the game’s release the following year.

    Although the offline modes will still be available in the months between the end of the beta and the full release next year, MultiVersus fans will undoubtedly be extremely disappointed by the temporary loss of the game’s core online experience. Taking a game offline for any length of time is extremely risky for the crucial player retention in the dangerous world of live service game development.
