Game News MultiVersus: Warner Bros’ Smash Bros beats the competition as soon as the open beta is launched!
Bringing together many characters from different universes like Batman, Scooby-Doo or Taz and Arya Stark, the Smash Bros-like MultiVersus arouses real interest from players. Launched yesterday in open beta, the title did not miss its meeting with the players.
For the past week, MultiVersus has been tickling players’ curiosity. Accessible to a certain number of players, the title was presented on various video platforms but also in stream. The gameplay, the way you can progress the characters, the nervousness of the fights and the interpretation of the genre of the brawler / platform fighter seem to particularly appeal to the players.
A wild success from the beta!
Thus, even before its availability to everyone in open beta, Multiversus peaked at 62,433 players on Steam according to SteamDBand so has has already dethroned Dragon Ball FighterZ, Mortal Kombat 11, Brawlhalla or even Guilty Gear Strive. A record that bodes well for Warner Bros, but which was expected be beaten as soon as the public beta servers open last night. And it did not fail! Despite recurring technical problems that could be expected on a launch day, MultiVersus literally broke his own record.
Still according to SteamDB, which allows us to compare estimates, 144,456 players logged in simultaneously last night, which totally eclipses every other fighting game, whatever it is, on Valve’s platform. To situate, in 2nd place, we find Dragon Ball FighterZ, peaking on PC at 44,234 players. It should be noted, however, that MultiVersus is freebut even there, no title can compete.
A promising game, whose first season will begin shortly
New players were therefore able to discover the game yesterday, with the first patch that nerfs Taz, but that brings out the power of Superman all the more. At their side, we find Batman, Wonder Woman, Harley Quinn, Sammy, Bugs Bunny, Arya Stark, Tom & Jerry or even LeBron Jamesknowing that Morty will arrive on August 9 for the launch of the first season of the game, while Rick will have to wait until August 23rd. Be that as it may, MultiVersus is off to a very good start.
It remains to be seen if he will be able to maintain the interest of players over the long termwhich will include the addition of new characters, rhythmic seasons, events, rewards to be obtained and, of course, a lively competitive scene. As a reminder, MultiVersus is available on PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series, Xbox One and PC with a netcode cross-play and rollback supporta must for good online games.
