MultiVersus Season 2 begins today, and Warner Bros. Games has shared some of the content headed to the crossover fighting game. Season 2 will bring a handful of new challengers, and the first confirmed new fighter is Looney Tunes’ Marvin the Martian. The character hails from Mars and is sent to destroy Earth, but he never quite succeeds. WB Games says more details about Marvin’s kit are coming soon.
A new stage based on Game of Thrones is also here for Season 2. The iconic Iron Throne rests in the background of the stage, and the music is an all-new remix of the Game of Thrones theme music.
Season 2’s Battle Pass is full of new badges, icons, banners, and taunts to unlock. There are also new Character Variants along both the Free and Premium Battle Pass tracks, like Baker Street Tom & Jerry and Astronaut Velma.
WB Games also released the patch notes for Season 2, and you can check out some of the highlights below:
- There are no Battle Pass tiers without rewards
- You can equip up to three badges at once
- The ‘Silly Queue’ includes for-fun game modes and items
- New game type: Big Head Mode
- Three new items added: Bounce Pad, Proximity Mine, and Drumstick
- New cosmetics include Uncle Shagworthy and Samurai Batman
- The Space Jam map now keeps score of baskets made
- The intro tutorial has been simplified
- Character balance updates and network/latency improvements also added
MultiVersus’ first season featured a ton of crazy crossovers, including Gremlins star Gizmo, Black Adam, and more. The game got off to a hot start, debuting as the best-selling game in the U.S. in July, crossing 10 million players along the way. There could be more exciting characters on the way, with a recent leak of Mark Hamill’s Joker potentially coming to the game.
We called WB’s take on the platform fighting game great in our MultiVersus review, saying “MultiVersus may need time to grow its currently limited selection of stages and characters to meet its bright potential, but its foundations are already rock solid.”
