During the testing phase for MultiVersus, the new platform fighter from Warner Bros., players were subject to regular progress resets. However, alongside yesterday’s open beta release, the game won’t have any more resets, allowing players to keep their progress forever.
As pointed out by PC Gamer, in an announcement on the MultiVersus Discord server, Warner Bros. social and community director Nikki Grantham explained how progression will work going forward. “If you played during the Early Access period, all of your progression to ALL of the characters you played during 7/19 – 7/25 is saved (yay!),” Grantham said.
“So, no worries if you can’t unlock all of the characters you played before, you’ll keep and resume your progress once they’re in the free rotation or if you unlock ’em,” Grantham added.
Alongside this announcement, Grantham also discussed the game’s new character rotation system, which gives players a small roster of free characters that swap out every two weeks.
“Character progression you earn with these characters beginning from Early Access this timeframe will be SAVED so when they’re back in rotation (or if you unlock them with in-game Gold) you’ll be able to continue right where you left off,” Grantham said.
MultiVersus went into open beta yesterday and had an absolutely massive launch, reaching over 144,000 concurrent players. The appeal being able to play as one of WB’s surprisingly vast and varied library of characters including Batman, Shaggy, Arya Stark, and more.
MultiVersus is a new platform fighter, similar to games like Super Smash Bros. IGN gave the new fighter an 8 in our review, saying while it might need time to grow its limited roster, “its foundations are already rock solid.”
