We’ve been eagerly anticipating the full release of MultiVersus for quite some time, and while this month’s public launch is billed an open beta – well, you’ll find us clogging up the servers from minute one. Of course, if you’ve already participated in the closed beta test, then you’ll get Early Access from 19th July – but everyone else will be invited in from 26th July.

For those of you who don’t know, this is effectively Super Smash Bros with Warner Bros characters, and it’s not a lazy rip-off either. We were blown away by the aforementioned closed beta test, which looked and played great in our opinion. Crucially, Iron Giant is joining the fray from 19th July, as if the game couldn’t possibly get any weirder!

There’ll be eight maps in the day one release, including the Batcave and Scooby’s Haunted Mansion, and there’ll even be local multiplayer for up to four players if you don’t want to compete online. There’s plenty to look forward to here, then – we actually reckon this is going to be a quiet hit – but will you be joining the fray?
