Crossover Carnage Continues

Those currently swingin’ mallets and tossing pies in the madcap world of MultiVersus will be given the opportunity to go for the brass ring real soon, as Player First Games has kicked off the first test period for the brawler’s long-awaited Ranked Mode.

As of 09:00 PT / 12:00 ET / 18:00 BST, players will be able to jump into the temporary Alpha, which will be offering up a full week of ranked play in order for the developer to test the ins and outs of the new system. Ranked Mode will see players’ win/loss ratio count toward an overall leaderboard standing, a feature that much of the MultiVersus community has been asking for some time now. Of course, standard multiplayer battles will also remain available during the course of Ranked alpha and beyond.

MultiVersus, which currently remains in an Early Access status, has recently closed out its first season of content with the arrival of DC Comics anti-hero Black Adam. The crossover brawler has been pretty successful with critics and players right out of the gate, though currently battles myriad free-to-play games, of multiple genres, in its bid for audience retention. Player First Games has done a grand job in providing frequent updates for the fledgling fighter, though has struggled socially in the face of player impatience — much of which has been completely unwarranted.

While we are yet to receive any details pertaining to Season 2, there have already been multiple datamines suggesting some of the upcoming characters that might be waiting to join the roster. MultiVersus’ second season will likely be something of a watershed moment for the game, ultimately delivering the under-the-hood fixes and gameplay content that will make or break the title in 2023 and beyond. Regardless, MultiVersus is a fun, if chaotic scrapper, and is deserving of future success.

MultiVersus is now in Early Access on PlayStation, PC, and Xbox platforms.
