Does ‘MultiVersus’ have local multiplayer?

Come on, grab your friends

MultiVersus is the latest party brawler to burst out of the gate, bringing together fighters from WB franchises for the ultimate multiversal showdown. You’ll be able to play as the likes of Batman, Harley Quinn and Superman, as well as characters from Steven Universe, Game of Thrones and more. Each has their own moveset and signature style, meaning each battle feel different, as unique matchups battle it out to win.

You can face off against other players online in team battles, or in tense 1v1 matches. For a game in beta, the matchmaking is surprisingly solid, and getting into an online game is relatively quick when compared to the game’s main competitors. Some will want to play local multiplayer however, and in that respect MultiVersus also brings the goods.

In this brief guide, we’ll explain whether MultiVersus has a local multiplayer mode, and how it works. Perfect for any friendships that you’d love to ruin, and any scores that need settling.
