Warner Bros. crossover fighter Multiversus officially announced

Free-to-play for PC, PlayStation and Xbox next year.

Multiversus, the upcoming Smash Bros-like platform fighter from Warner Bros., has finally been announced after appearing in numerous previous leaks.

The game will be free-to-play, and launch for PC, PlayStation and Xbox in 2022. There's no word today on a version for Nintendo Switch.

Cross-platform play and progression are confirmed, and developer Player First Games has boasted Multiversus will offer "best-in-class" netcode and dedicated servers for the life of the game - likely a nod to Smash Bros.' sometimes wobbly online experience. Here's a first official look at it in action:

Characters include Batman (voiced by Kevin Conroy), Shaggy (Matthew Lillard), Superman, Bugs Bunny, Harley Quinn, Tom & Jerry, Finn and Jake from Adventure Time, Arya from Game of Thrones (Maisie Williams), Steven and Garnet from Steven Universe, and more. Original characters will also feature, such as Reindog - a big green cross between a reindeer and dog.

Additional characters, skins and modes will be added over time, Player First Games said.

The next step for Multiversus is a series of playtests, which you can register interest for now on
