Let’s just take this away: there is very little that is original MultiVersusComing free fighting game. It’s so obvious it’s designed to be like Super Smash. two brothers., only with Warner Bros. characters. Instead of Nintendo characters and other classic video games. This means that instead of Super Mario getting beaten up by Sephiroth, you have Shaggy and Wonder Woman team up to battle Arya Stark and Bugs Bunny in the Batcave. It’s weird and horrible but it also feels like home in a world full of others It is an electronic gameAnd crowded placeAnd Doctor StrangeAnd lifeguards. As rude as it is, after spending time with MultiVersusI’m starting to think it could end up being a huge success.
Functionally, the core MultiVersus corresponding to Smashing. It’s a 2D fighter where the goal is to keep your opponents off the level, which you do by doing lots and lots of damage; The more damage your enemy has, the more they will fly. It’s also a game all about chaos. Things move so fast that you really have to pay attention to what’s going on, but there’s still a great deal of strategy beyond mixing buttons. (Although I won a few matches early on by being a button freak.) I didn’t play enough to research the nuances of gameplay, but I felt like a surprisingly strong fighter with a great deal of variety in terms of attacks and characters.
MultiVersus It mixes things up a bit by offering three main modes. You can fight one-on-one or in a classic four-player free-for-all, but the team battles may be the most interesting. Here, players compete in duos, aiming to get four knockouts to win. It is particularly interesting because, among the standard tank and bruise categories, MultiVersus She also has support characters who can help their teammates in battle. I’ve only played with strangers so far so there wasn’t much coordination in the matches. But I’m curious what will happen when the high-level players start working together. There is a lot of potential out there.
from what you played, MultiVersus The gameplay is basic, at least good enough for an amateur like me. But its real advantage comes from the fact that it is multi-platform and free to play, which makes it much more accessible to everyone Smashing, which has always been limited to Nintendo consoles. This does not mean that MultiVersus It is the best game of course, but it has the opportunity to reach a large audience, in the same way It is an electronic game It eventually managed to dwarf the battle royale games that came before it.
This success is likely due to things I wasn’t able to experience in the alpha phase. MultiVersus It has a Battle Pass and an in-game shop, but since I haven’t been able to spend real money on the game yet, it’s unclear how generous the new content unlock will be. similarly, MultiVersus He will likely live and die when his character is brought up. In Alpha, there were 15 characters available, which makes you feel small when you are familiar with 80+ characters Smash Bros. Ultimate. The important part will not only be bringing up new fighters regularly, but also making these workouts feel like an exciting event, which is something. Smash Bros. Mastermind Masahiro Sakurai has mastered it.
As we’ve seen in the past, originality rarely has anything to do with success. And MultiVersus It has the potential to open the fighting game genre to a whole new audience. It’s too early to tell if this will actually happen, of course, but the pieces are there — and the field is wide open given the uncertain future of Smashing. You will be able to verify this for yourself soon. While MultiVersus It doesn’t have a final release date yet, an open beta will be released in July. The game is coming to PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S.
