MultiVersus – How Does Character Rotation Work?
The Character Rotation in MultiVersus has understandably caused confusion among some players online -- but don't worry, we'll break it down for you. As mentioned, there will be new characters for you to play every two weeks. You can see which characters are currently available in rotation from the Character Collection screen.
If you're worried about losing any progress once the rotation ends, don't. All progression you've made with characters during the MultiVersus Character Rotation will be saved and carried over once they are back on rotation; this includes any progress during the MultiVersus Early Access period.

Moreover, if you haven't unlocked all the characters, your progress will remain intact and carry over once they're unlocked. To unlock characters, you can use Gold, Gleamium, or Character Tickets acquired from Founder's Packs.
However, this does not include progression made in the Lab game mode, as this merely serves as a training room for players. The following Character Rotation is expected to be revealed before the current period ends, so check back for the updated schedule.
