Today marks the arrival of a big game update to MultiVersus, the free-to-play platform fighter that's still technically in beta. The headline addition this time is a brand new playable character, with Rick Sanchez of Rick and Morty fame joining the roster. He got his own teaser trailer, which you can watch above.

Rick is a Mage class fighter, using his various gadgets and gizmos to get the upper hand. We're sure he'll be lots of fun to play when he's made available after this latest patch lands.

The update also makes numerous balance adjustments once again, with Garnet, Gizmo, and Steven Universe receiving some buffs. One interesting tweak is that the amount of XP required to get a character's Mastery level all the way to 15 has been doubled. In other words, it's going to take much longer to level up all the fighters following this patch. This is in order to make it "a bit more of a journey".

Another notable change is that the free character you receive after completing the basic tutorial has been changed from Wonder Woman to Shaggy. This means Wonder Woman will need to be unlocked via Gold or Gleamium.

You can see the full patch notes through here. The update will be going live at some point today, 27th September, so if you're excited for Rick, you've not got long to wait. Are you still enjoying MultiVersus on PS5 and PS4? Travel through dimensions in the comments section below.
