One of the most enticing aspects of MultiVersus is its vast cast of playable characters, based on properties owned by Warner Bros. From Looney Tunes to DC Comics superheroes, popular shows like Game of Thrones, or even cartoons like Scooby-Doo, Adventure Time, and more, it's a crossover that promises to rival Smash.
With some confirmed icons such as Batman, Superman, and Shaggy, Player First Games revealed two more fighters joining the MultiVersus roster: the Iron Giant, Looney Tunes' Taz, and Scooby-Doo's Velma.
MultiVersus full roster
As of the time of writing, there are 16 confirmed characters for MultiVersus. Player First Games has said they plan to continuously update the roster post-launch, however, this does not mean the full list of playable characters at launch has been revealed.

One of the most interesting aspects of MultiVersus gameplay-wise is that, unlike other fighting games, this one puts an emphasis on team play, being developed as a 2v2 fighter first and foremost.
Each character has an archetype that's more similar to a MOBA than an actual fighting game. There are Bruisers, like Batman or Taz, Tanks, like The Iron Giant or Wonder Woman, Supports, like Velma or Reindog, and Mage/Ranged, like Bugs Bunny or Tom & Jerry.
The idea is that by mixing and matching different characters, teams can find a perfect balance of offensive tools and defensive options to beat their opponents.
