Morty (of Rick and Morty) joins the Warner Bros. ensemble's Smash-like fighting game on August 23, according to the games' official Twitter account.

MultiVersus, a Warner Bros. title that includes Warner Bros. characters like Batman, Bugs Bunny, and Scooby-Doos pal Shaggy, has been in an open beta since July 26 on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Windows PC, and Xbox Series X.

The free-to-play game currently has a roster of 17 players that can be purchased with in-game currency earned while playing, or premium currency sold in the free-to-play games marketplace. Those characters have not been confirmed.

Morty was scheduled to join the game with season 1's tip-off, and Rick sometime thereafter. Season 1 will also include a classic arcade mode, which appears to be a PvE round-robin against AI foes, and a ranked multiplayer leaderboard sometime after Aug. 15.
