Multiversus servers DOWN today ahead of season 1 release: Full patch notes revealed

Mutliversus is going down today ahead of the season 1 release date. The official account for the Smash Bros-style brawler from WB Games revealed that Multiversus will be going into maintenance mode at 10am pacific time – that’s 12pm eastern and 5pm BST. Multiversus servers will be down for an hour after which the season 1 update will be available to play.

Speaking about the season 1 launch and server downtime, the Multiversus Twitter posted: “Gooooood morning, MVPs! We’ll be hitting maintenance mode today from 10am to 11am PDT while we roll out our patch. See you in Season 1! #MultiVersus”.

Multiversus season 1 will be bringing with it new characters such as Rick and Morty, a new ranked mode and a classic arcade mode, plus new cosmetics.

MULTIVERSUS PATCH NOTES FOR SEASON 1

General

Morty will be arriving on 08/23! He will be our first Plumbus-wielding character!

The patch will come in two parts. The first will be on August 15 and the second will be coming shortly afterwards (hopefully in the next few days). So not every change, but most will be in the August 15 patch.

New Free Character Rotation (8/15 – 8/30)

Arya

Batman

LeBron

Steven

Meta Systems

Free Rotation Characters now have an icon in character select to identify them

Battle Pass XP match rewards increased to 10 for wins and 5 for losses, up from 5 for wins and 3 for losses.

Disabled class based Battle Pass missions other than for Tanks

Developer Note: Since players might not have access to fighters in specific classes other than Tank (thanks to Wonder Woman), we felt like relying on rerolls was not a reliable enough method to work around those missions.

Lowered the requirements for a number of seasonal missions:

Ringout a player from the top of the map 50 times (previously 75)

Ringout a player from the side of the map 50 times (previously 75)

Ringout a player from the bottom of the map 50 times (previously 75)

Get 50 assists (previously 125)
