MultiVersus Announcement Full Launch

MultiVersus “Accidentally” Asked Players to Purchase Lives With Real Money

MutliVersus is a new free-to-play Smash Bros. clone based on the Warner Bros. franchises. Being “free-to-play” means players have to fork out money for various cosmetics and other in-game purchases. However, for a limited time and due to a so-called “bug”, the game asked players to purchase lives with real money.

Keep in mind that buying lives with real money isn’t anything new. Most of the time this feature is locked into mobile games such as Candy Crush. To see this feature arrive in a console game is questionable.

Warner Bros. Games claims the ability to purchase extra lives in MultiVersus was a bug and wasn’t intentional. However, gamers aren’t buying it – literally. Many of them have called out the company for lying about the bug. Most of them say that MultiVersus clearly has game code written for it that adds this feature to the game.

One user on X says “It was a bug to have someone write the description for the rift that says you could buy extra lives”. It sounds like the feature is already in the game but was accidentally unlocked. The official MultiVersus says:

We’d also like to let you know that the option to purchase extra lives is a bug that has been addressed and is not an intended feature in the game.

Of course, the issue has been patched out. Whether it will pop up again is unclear at this point.

MultiVersus launched out of early access last week into its V.1 build. The game celebrated its launch with new fighters including Friday the 13th’s Jason Voorhees.
