MultiVersus Is Off To A Blistering Start

Just one day after launching into open beta, MultVersus, the new fighting game from Warner Bros., is posting some big numbers. On Steam alone, the game reached a peak of 144,456 concurrent players, putting it ahead of Warframe, Rust, and Destiny 2.

The free-to-play alternative to Super Smash Bros, is proving popular on consoles as well, currently placing second on the Xbox Series X/S Top Free Games list behind Fall Guys. On PlayStation, MultiVersus is also second ranked on the Most Downloaded list, behind Stray.  

With popular characters like Batman, Bugs Bunny, and Shaggy, it’s no wonder that people came out in numbers to play. It’s an even better sign that they’ve continued to stick around, making for a very smooth launch.

In fact, MultiVersus has become so popular that it’s going to be a featured event in the upcoming EVO 2022, the biggest fighting game tournament in the world. Not bad for a game that’s only been out less than a month.

Still, the game has seen some fixes and nerfs. For example Taz, who’s Tornado was so devastating, it forced developer Player First’s hand in bringing the character back down to earth by creating a cool-down period so the Tasmanian devil couldn’t chain attacks so ruthlessly.
