Marvin the Martian will join MultiVersus as part of its second season of content, which begins today, publisher Warner Bros. Games and developer Player First Games announced. A release date for the character was not announced.
A new Game of Thrones-themed map is also planned for release in Season 2.
Here is the full rundown on everything announced for Season 2 thus far, via the MultiVersus official website:
- New Characters – New roster additions are incredibly exciting, so we figured we’d give you a bit of a tease of one of the new characters who will be joining the MultiVersus roster in Season 2! Hailing from the planet Mars and sent to destroy Earth with his Illudium Q-36 Explosive Space Modulator, Marvin the Martian will soon be making his way to MultiVersus, in yet another fruitless attempt to claim victory. We’ll have more information about Marvin and his kit soon, so hang in there!
- New Map – Winter is coming… and along with it, a new map! That’s right, in Season 2 we’re introducing an all new Game of Thrones themed map with all the hazards and pitfalls you’d come to expect from the land of Westeros. Soon you’ll be able to hurl your opponents away from the Iron Throne while humming an all-new remix of the awesome Game of Thrones theme music which has been composed with multiple sections that can transition dynamically depending on what mayhem is taking place in the match. When you play the Game of Thrones map, you win or you… fall off the map.
- Network and Latency Improvements – Since the Open Beta launch, we’ve made many optimizations to MultiVersus to improve performance. We recently implemented multi-path network traffic acceleration to improve stability and latency, which will lead to a much improved online experience for players worldwide. This is just the beginning and we’ll be continuing to invest in and improve in this area. This is a priority for us and the team is hard at work at making the online experience amazing!
- New Battle Pass – We’re happy to share a little information about our Season 2 Battle Pass which is chock full of new badges, icons/profile icons, banners and taunts for you to unlock and enjoy! Season 2 will boast fun new Character Variants to collect along both the Free and Premium tracks such as Baker Street Tom & Jerry and Astronaut Velma. If Ringouts happen to be your thing, we’re also adding some new additions such as Toxic Explosion and Lava Breath that are sure to demoralize your opponents in the flashiest way possible.
