At long last, the MultiVersus release date has arrived – sort of – and players can start to get their hands on Player First Games’ fighting game. It’s a platform brawler, as you might already know, and that means there’s a lot more to this game than meets the eye. It plays a little like other games in this genre like Super Smash Bros Ultimate and Brawlhalla, but there’s also a lot about it that makes it unique. One part of that is all the different MultiVersus game modes that are available right now.

Through MultiVersus, players are being given a tool to answer burning questions like ‘would Velma Dinkley be able to outsmart Batman?’ Or ‘do Tom and Jerry get along enough to fight side-by-side against the Iron Giant?’ We know these are some specific examples, but they are questions that you’ll be able to answer while toying around with all the MultiVersus game modes on offer.

But, what are these modes and how do they work? Well, we have you covered if you’re new to the game. It’s important to be clued up on what to expect when you boot up this awesome free-to-play fighter.

MultiVersus game modes

In this particular fighting game, there are five different MultiVersus game modes available to play at the moment and they are:

  • 1 vs 1
  • 2 vs 2
  • Co-Op vs AI
  • FFA
  • The Lab

1 vs 1

In this game mode, things are pretty straight forward. It’s a one-versus-one battle – a duel, of sorts. Some of the MultiVersus maps and stages offer smaller variants for 1 vs 1 game modes, but not all of them. Expect a lot of space in this intense mode.

2 vs 2

This game mode is a little bit more traditional; it’s a 2 vs 2, team-based mode where you and a partner duke it out with another pair. This is going to be frantic and you’ll need teamwork to succeed.

Co-Op vs AI

This is a great place to practice. Two players in the same guild will be able to join a match and battle CPU-controlled enemies in a 2 vs 2 format. If you need to work on your co-ordination, this is the game mode for you.


FFA is short for Free For All, a mode where four players battle it out in a 1 vs 1 vs 1 vs 1 foirmat. It’s reportedly the only game mode to feature in-game items – however, this could change by the time the game itself launches.

The Lab

The Lab is a fully offline mode where players can effectively train and practice MultiVersus. When in this game mode, players can choose their opponent and tweak their behaviour to suit their needs. All locked fighters, variants, and perks will also be available in this mode – if you need to give them a look.

Well, that’s everything you need to know about all the game modes available in this platform brawler. If you want the latest on the MultiVersus roster, we have everything you need to know here.
