Warner Bros. Games stop MultiVersus’ open beta ahead of a full release scheduled for early 2024. The open beta for the free-to-play WB theme Super Smash Bros.-like brawler will be taken offline on June 25.
While MultiVersus offline, you can still play the game’s training room, local matches, and use all of the characters and in-game cosmetics you’ve unlocked. (If you want to mess around with the offline features, you’ll need to download the game from digital stores before April 4.) Any progress you’ve already made will carry over when the game becomes available again in 2024. But you won’t be able to get a refund due to the closure, according to an FAQ pagewhich can be frustrating for players who have spent money on a game they won’t be able to play online for months soon.
Due to the open beta, “we have a clearer picture of what to focus on, especially the content cadence of new characters, maps and modes to give you more ways to enjoy the game along with updated netcode and more matchmaking improvements. Tony Huynh, CEO and co-founder of MultiVersus developer Player First Games, wrote in a blog post. “We’ll also be reworking the progression system based on your feedback and looking at new ways to connect with your friends in-game.”
