Player First Games’ MultiVersus is easily one of the best fighting games out there right now and it’s clear to see why when you take a look at who’s joining the roster next. We know we have had more than enough time to learn all the best MultiVersus Morty combos, but it looks like we finally have a release time for MultiVersus’ Rick. If you want to know more about when exactly you can drop into this brawler as the burping brainiac from Earth Dimension C-137, keep reading and we’ll fill you in.

Following a handful of teasers and a rather long wait, Player First Games has confirmed that Rick will join MultiVersus as a fighter from 10:00 PST / 13:00 EST / 18:00 BST on September 27 – this is over a month after Morty was introduced and roughly halfway between the start of Season 1 and when MultiVersus’ Season 1 end date is set for.

The release of Rick will follow on from roughly an hour of MultiVersus server maintenance and half an hour of “Rick-tastic goodness” on MultiVersus’ Twitch. If you’re wondering why the servers are being temporarily shut down, you should check out the MultiVersus patch notes for more information.

We don’t know a lot about Rick’s moveset, but we do know that he’s going to be a Mage archetype fighter in-game with three main special attacks: “Yeah, Fart Bomb!”, “Meeseek and Destroy”, and “Basrick Portal Theory”.

In addition to this, he’s going to be an expert-level character. Not only does this mean that his combos are going to be tougher to string together, it also means that he’s going to cost 3,000 gold to unlock – or 700 Gleamium. You’ll also be pleased to know that you will also be able to unlock him using a character unlock token.

Do you think he’s going to shoot to the top of our MultiVersus tier list? We’re not so sure, but we know Rick would certainly want to think so.
