Players do not need a PlayStation Plus or Xbox Live Gold membership to play MultiVersus as it is a free-to-play game. However, players can purchase premium currency in store windows.
The open beta includes optional in-game purchases. Furthermore, all player progress and unlocks earned during the previous Early Access period will carry over for the entire life of the game.
Currently, the developers have not set an end date for the MultiVersus Open Beta, but the team has promised that it will continue to update the game over the coming months with new characters, maps, seasonal content, and more.
