MultiVersus PS5 PS4

MultiVersus has been in its open beta phase for a good while now, and developer Player First Games promised Season 1 would be coming soon. After a delay, fans now have a release date to look forward to, and it's very close indeed.

The first major seasonal update will arrive on 15th August 2022, which is in just a few days:

As well as confirming the date for the start of Season 1, the studio has also given us a date for the next playable character, Morty. Initially planned to release at the very start of the season, he will now launch just over a week later, on 23rd August.

Morty isn't the only new addition to the game in Season 1 — a preview of what's to come includes a classic arcade mode, ranked matches, and lots of new cosmetics to unlock. There's plenty to get excited about, then, but how are you feeling about MultiVersus? Will you be hopping in to see all the fresh stuff? Tell us in the comments section below.
