MultiVersus Starts Early Access Open Beta July 26

MultiVersus has kept its promise to announce its open beta following its ESRB rating. The platform brawler, as developer Player First Games likes to call it, arrives on consoles and PC on July 26.

"The team is currently hard at work updating the game in the lead up to our upcoming open beta," said game director Tony Huynh in today’s announcement. "Speaking of open beta, I'm super excited to announce that the open beta for MultiVersus will be available to all players across Xbox, PlayStation, and PC for free beginning July 26."

Those that sign up for early access can even get in on the fun a week early. Early access begins on July 19, with anyone who took part in the closed alpha test automatically qualifying. Those that want to get in on MultiVersus early but didn’t take part in the alpha will have to sign up on the MultiVersus website.

Huynh also reiterated that MultiVersus will retain player progression even after the game has its full launch, so beta players won't have to re-unlock characters or cosmetics. Players that take part in the open beta will help refine the game based on provided feedback.

Players can also look forward to more content following MultiVersus' soft launch. "In the months ahead, we plan to add new characters, new maps, new cosmetics, and more ways to play across upcoming seasons of content."

Huynh has already promised The Iron Giant will be coming to MultiVersus, as well as a secret character that is "really cool and not something [he's] ever seen done before" from a gameplay mechanics standpoint. There's also a third character coming that players seem to think will be Gandalf the Grey.

While the MultiVersus roster is already fairly extensive, there are two characters that Huynh will be fighting for. Mordecai and Rigby are apparently two of the most requested characters for MultiVersus, but that'll be up to the license holder if they can be added to the game.

MultiVersus arrives on Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PS4, PS5, and PC via Steam on July 26.
