The free-to-play free-for-all has some new faces… as well as a fully powered-up Shaggy.


A brand-new trailer for Multiversus--the upcoming free-to-play platform fighter starring Warner Bros.' biggest franchises--has dropped, confirming not only when the open beta begins but also a few new faces in the cast.

The cinematic trailer shows a few characters we've already seen being forced to team up, including Batman and Shaggy, Bugs Bunny and Arya Stark, Garnet from Steven Universe and Jake from Adventure Time. Harley Quinn also features, but her teammate is the trailer's first confirmed new character: the Tasmanian Devil from Looney Tunes.
