However, the four free characters available during the first week (some players had been enjoying MultiVersus via early access) have now changed. The Closed Beta period saw Jake, Harley Quinn, Taz, and Shaggy free for players, but they’re now locked.
Instead, Finn, Garnet, Superman and Reindog are the latest free characters. Naturally, some players are a bit miffed that the fighters they’ve spent about week levelling up are no longer available, and have taken to social media for answers.
In response, Nikki Grantham, Director of Social and Community for Warner Bros Games, commented:
With the start of open beta today also starts our free character preview rotation. Starting today, we’ll have a new section of our roster that will be free to all players that will change every two weeks. Character progression you earn with these characters beginning from Early Access this timeframe will be saved, so when they’re back in rotation – or if you unlock them with in-game Gold – you’ll be able to continue right where you left off.
Moving forward, character progression will not reset. All characters will always be unlockable with in-game earnable Gold again when they come out of the free character preview rotation.
If you played during the Early Access period, all of your progression to all of the characters you played during July 19-25 is saved. So, no worries if you can’t unlock all of the characters you played before, you’ll keep and resume your progress once they’re in the free rotation, or if you unlock them.
MultiVersus is currently available for PS5, PS4, PC, Xbox Series X/S, and Xbox One in Open Beta.
