MultiVersus’ new PvE mode, explained

When MultiVersus relaunches with a makeover later this month after a nearly yearlong hiatus, it will come equipped with a new PvE mode called Rifts that will let players take on tutorials, challenges, and story-based missions. In a new video breaking down Rifts, we see what kind if minigames and giant boss fights — and some other oddities — players can expect.

Rifts, Scooby-Doo’s Velma explains, are composed of chapters, which are divided into nodes that give players various battles and challenges. Each node has its own mutators to keep things interesting (and occasionally very weird, based on the above footage), and players can earn rewards by completing those nodes.

Warner Bros. and developer Player First Games pitch Rifts as a way for players to “learn mechanics, test characters, and sharpen skills” without having to wade into the dangerous waters of MultiVersus’ online competitive play. And it sounds like Rifts will continue to evolve and be added to over time.

MultiVersus will relaunch on May 28 on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Windows PC, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X. Player First says it has rebuilt the game from the ground up to support new netcode and upgraded visuals. There will also be new characters; in addition to the recently announced Joker, MultiVersus’ new video teases two more still-unannounced additions to the roster — one of those slots could be beloved cartoon trio The Powerpuff Girls.
