Season 1 of Multiversus with the new Battle-Pass system starts on August 15
Season 1 of Multiversus will launch on August 15. Developer Player First Games confirmed on Twitter that the season will introduce a new battle pass system and Morty to the character roster. The season was originally scheduled to start on August 9 (six day difference), but suffered a delay. Multiversus has been in open beta since July 26 and is available in most countries in Europe and America. This new season marks the first major update since then, allowing for additional testing.
Player First Games said the anxious Morty from Adult Swim’s Rick and Morty will arrive on August 23 as part of the new season. Additionally, all new content coming to Multiversus will be spread across the new season lifecycle. This would include new modes and other cosmetics. Prior to the delay, the other half of the dynamic duo, Rick Sanchez, was confirmed to join Season 1, though now the situation is unclear. The final characters to be added to the roster were the mighty Iron Giant and Lebron James, the latter dressed in his Space Jam: A New Legacy basketball gear.
We’re excited to announce that Season 1 will kick off on August 15 with a brand new Battle Pass for you to earn in-game rewards! We can also confirm that Morty will join the character roster on August 23 as part of Season 1. We look forward to sharing more in the weeks to come! #MultiVersus

The Season 1 Battle Pass would include a classic Arcade mode, new banners and icons, a new ranked mode, and characters. The official snapshot at the time revealed Rick – possibly at a later date. Multiversus, which is a free-to-play alternative to Super Smash Bros., saw its first championship at EVO 2022 (fighting games tournament), at the beginning of the week. The game is currently region locked and unplayable in India and most of Asia. However, players who were able to obtain a beta key can still access and play the game from their respective platforms. But you will need to use a VPN and connect to Europe or the United States, as there are no servers in Asia.
Published by WB Games, Multiversus is a free-to-play platform fighting game, featuring a host of iconic characters from Warner Bros. movies, shows and comics. At launch, the roster included Shaggy, Wonder Woman, Superman, Batman, Bugs Bunny, Tom and Jerry, Arya Stark, and more. Unlike Nickelodeon’s franchise fighting game, Multiversus features voice acting from the original talent. Batman is voiced by Kevin Conroy, Harley Quinn by Tara Strong, Arya Stark by Maisie Williams, and more. The game also supports cross-play across multiple platforms.
Season 1 of Multiversus will be released on August 15 on PS4, PS5, Xbox Series S/X, Xbox One and Windows PC via Steam and Epic Games Store.
