MultiVersus Game Director Reveals the Price and Number of Tiers in the Season 1 Battle Pass – GameRant

Science & Technology

Early details regarding the upcoming MultiVersus Season 1 Battle Pass are shared, including its price and how many tiers will be included.
For the past two weeks, MultiVersus players have had access to the Super Smash Bros.-like fighting game's Open Beta. This first chapter in MultiVersus' soft launch is soon coming to an end, however, as the "pre-season" wraps up and Season 1 arrives. Starting August 9, MultiVersus Season 1 will launch alongside the release of Morty from Rick & Morty as a fighter. It also marks the start of MultiVersus' first full-fledged Battle Pass, early details of which developer Player First Games has now shared.
As current MultiVersus players already know, the pre-season version of MultiVersus' Battle Pass is somewhat underwhelming. There's both Adventure Time's Finn in Pajamas skin and a Cake skin for Jake at tier 15, but otherwise, the Battle Pass is very thin. As expected, MultiVersus game director Tony Huynh has confirmed the pre-season Battle Pass is limited by nature. A full Battle Pass will arrive for Season 1, with both a full price and a full collection of tiers for players to progress through with all-new content to unlock.

In the pre-season, the Battle Pass cost just 300 Gleamium. In Season 1 of MultiVersus, Huynh says he thinks the price will be 950 Gleamium. Currently, $10 will buy 1,000 Gleamium, leaving players with just enough to feel like they need to buy more to get something from the MultiVersus shop. As for tiers, the pre-season had just 15 for players to progress through. In Season 1, MultiVersus players will be able to unlock a full 50 tiers of content.
Huynh doesn't provide any further information regarding the MultiVersus Battle Pass for Season 1, so MultiVersus players will just have to wait to find out everything in store. It's safe to assume that the Season 1 Battle Pass will feature more of what was included in the pre-season Battle Pass, though. Expect the Battle Pass to include badges, profile icons, Toast, XP boosts, stickers, Gold, banner backgrounds, emotes, ring-out animations, and skins.
One big looming question is whether Player First Games will follow the trend set by other live service games and include Gleamium in the Battle Pass. Games like Fortnite allow players to earn back what they spent for the Battle Pass, plus more. This encourages people to continue playing, as well as spend more money. But some live service games don't have as much faith and prefer the money over potential player retention.
There was some worry during the MultiVersus pre-season that completing the Battle Pass would be too demanding. Player First then added extra seasonal challenges for bonus Battle Pass XP, which helped make progression very manageable. Now Player First just has to add a feature to continue rewarding MultiVersus players after they complete the Battle Pass and players will likely be very happy with what's arriving August 9.
MultiVersus is available now in Open Beta on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S.
