Steam's latest 9/10 free game is blowing up right now

Steam's latest 9/10 free game is blowing up right now

Multiversus is rapidly acquiring a respectable player base

A new hit has emerged on Steam and it’s rapidly rising up the storefront’s chart. Best of all? It’s totally free.

Multiversus may not exactly feel like a new game, but I can assure you it is.

This Warner Bros. crossover fighting game first launched in early access back in July of 2022 with that beta period ending in June of last year.

After an almost year-long hiatus, Multiversus finally returned just a couple of days ago, launching in full on 28 May.

It’s already garnering positive reviews from fans, with a Steam rating of ‘Very Positive’, and it’s rapidly expanding its player base numbers too.

At the time of writing, Multiversus is sitting in second position on the Trending chart, with a 24-hour peak of 51,585 - a very respectable number.

It’s not quite the all-time peak of 153,433 that Multiversus set during its early access period two years ago but it’s still the early days of the game’s full-launch.

Take a look at Multiversus in action below.

If you’re not familiar with the free-to-play Multiversus, it essentially allows you to pick from a wide roster of Warner Bros. characters, engaging in both 1 vs 1 and free-for-all battles.

Each character is equipped with their own unique attacks and, of course, there are signature perks too.

At this present time, there's a roster of 27 playable characters to choose from including familiar faces like Arya Stark, Batman, LeBron James, Shaggy Rogers, and Tom & Jerry.

As you might’ve guessed, more characters will be added over time.

I did mention that Multiversus had secured a ‘Very Positive’ review accolade over on Steam.

While that’s true, it’s also drawn in a more mixed array of reviews in recent days. This is mainly due to dissatisfaction from players over the game’s use of in-game currency and microtransactions.

“You need to MAX six characters to earn enough currency for ONE character, but new characters cost double the average price of 3K fighter currency, and no, you can't grind fighter currency. It's only available through events and missions. This is absolutely INSANE,” wrote one disgruntled player.

“Let us try out the characters in practice mode PLEASE. What a terrible change,” added another.

Multiversus definitely has some creases to iron out that, I hope, developers are currently addressing behind the scenes.

If they can make it through this difficult patch and find a happy resolution with players, the game could have a bright future.
