Out of nowhere, Player First Games has released the patch notes for MultiVersus Season 2, which starts today. It adds a new Battle Pass where no tier is without rewards while tuning the number of points required for each tier. A new in-game store is also available for purchasing cosmetics and different characters.
Another addition is Multi-Path Traffic Acceleration and optimization for network traffic. Though the developer promises this is “just the beginning,” it’s working to improve the online experience. The Scooby’s Mansion (No Roof) and Space Jam maps have also seen some updates, the former having increased size and the latter now keeping track of baskets made.
The Tutorial is also simplified, and players can go into Arcade Mode or their first match upon finishing the intro. Silly Queue, the playlist which offers fights with crazy modifiers, has received Big Head Mode. Large heads come with massive reductions to cooldown, feeding the chaos further. Check out some of the patch notes below and the full notes here for details on nerfs and buffs to different characters.
