The release date for Multiversus season one and Morty is set for August ...

After an undisclosed amount, we now have a release date for the Warner Bros fighting games first season, as well as a release date for new character Morty (of Rick & Morty fame) and the launch of the next battle pass for the free game.

In a tweet on the games' official Twitter account, Multiversus season 1 begins on August 15, Player First states. Players will not be waiting long to receive their hands on the new battle pass, which arrives on day one. However, the developer cautions that all season one content will not be released on the same day, but instead will be distributed throughout the season.

Morty from the smash hit TV show Rick & Morty will be joining the cast as separate fighters rather than being paired together as Tom & Jerry duos. Morty will join the Multiversus roster on August 23, according to Player First.

A classic arcade mode is on the way, too expected to involve players against various AI-controlled opponents in a structured series of fights, much like you'd expect to see in other similar fighting games such as Super Smash Bros Ultimate. However, leakers claim that the mode will have up to ten stages with three different difficulty settings, and that it may be played both solo and in co-op with a friend.

Season one of NBA legend LeBron James will receive a range of new cosmetics, including new player banners and icons, as well as some character variations. The two shown in the video are a Robin-themed outfit for basketball legend LeBron James, based on the 1957 short Whats Opera, Doc?
