Moving onto the upcoming Closed Alpha. The game will be playable on PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4 consoles, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One consoles, and PC with full cross-play support and dedicated server-based rollback netcode for robust online competition. Players can register right now through the game’s website for a chance to participate in the Closed Alpha.
To drive up some hype for Multiversus, a new video was also showcased today. In it, two members of the Player First Games development team go head-to-head against two professional Fighting Game Community (FGC) gamers. This latest trailer also shows off one of the game’s stages: Scooby Doo’s Haunted Mansion map. Needless to say, this map will also be playable during the Closed Alpha.
