Wondering how to download the MultiVersus Closed Alpha? We've got you covered.

As initially announced in November 2021, MultiVersus is Player First Games' upcoming big-budget, free-to-play platform fighter that is set to feature an ever-expanding cast of iconic characters and legendary universes under the Warner Bros. umbrella.

Following the upcoming game's PC Closed Tech Test that took place in February, Player First Games has opened things up a bit further with PlayStation and Xbox players being added to the mix in its MultiVersus Closed Alpha. Here's a breakdown of how to get access to the MultiVersus Closed Alpha.

Live from May 19 to Friday, May 27, at 8 p.m. ET, the MultiVersus Closed Alpha is free for all players on PC (via Steam), PlayStation 4, PS5, Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S to download and play to their hearts' content, so long as they have an access code.

There are two ways to obtain a MultiVersus Closed Alpha code.

The first is by having one sent directly by the developers to your WB Games account.

Those who participated in recent MultiVersus tests on PC automatically have access to the game in their Steam library and in a new invitation email.

Registration for the Closed Alpha is also still open at the official MultiVersus website. Registration does not guarantee entry, however, as space is said to be limited. Confirmation emails and codes are said to be potentially distributed throughout the Closed Alpha period through May 27.

The second way to get a MultiVersus Closed Alpha code is by having a friend who already redeemed their own Closed Alpha code invite you (via a referral link) to join the test.

After redeeming a Closed Alpha code, players can receive up to three referral links to send to friends interested in joining the Closed Alpha. Each link is unique, can only be redeemed once and is said to not guarantee participation as platform licenses may reach capacity beforehand.

To invite a friend to the MultiVersus Closed Alpha:

  • Log into your WB Games account
  • Select "Beta Management" from the left menu
  • Click the "Invite a Friend" button in the MultiVersus section
  • Copy the full URL and send privately to a friend

The Closed Alpha features full cross-gen and cross-play support, requires an internet connection to play, does not require a PlayStation Plus subscription nor an Xbox Live membership to play, and is less than 6 GB on all platforms. All stats and progress will reset after the Closed Alpha ends.

For those who, unfortunately, don't get a chance to play the game during the Closed Alpha, the MultiVersus Open Beta will be available in July 2022. More details on the beta are said to be announced at a later date.
