Warner Bros. new brawl Multiversus has reached a major milestone. More than 10 million players have signed up for mayhem. The beta launched for PS4, PS5, XBox One, XBox Series S/X, and PC on July 19, and opened to the public a week later. That’s a lot of people in your first three weeks.
Multiverse puts you against others Warner Bros. characters. in a silly team fighting game. Each character has its own strengths and weaknesses and is grouped into classes. Classes include assassin, brawler, mage, support, and tank. The default 2v2 mode can create some interesting character combinations. I never imagined that I would be scared to fight Velma from Scooby-Doo and Jake from Adventure Timebut here we are.
As pointed out by PC Gamers, tracker.gg – a website that tracks statistics for online games – shows the number of players falling to the 10 million mark. As of this writing, the number of players is 10,329,004. The game is free to play, which helps with the numbers a bit, but in a way it’s a player count. Also of note: this statistic includes players across all launch platforms.
