It was recently announced that MultiVersus will be entering into its open beta phase on July 26, but there's a catch. Players will be able to actually participate in the MultiVersus Beta via Early Access beginning on July 19, tomorrow.

According to Tony Huynh, Game Director of MultiVersus, there will actually be four different ways for players to jump into the Early Access part of the MultiVersus Beta. Fulfilling any one of these prerequisites will allow a player to get in on the action before the beta becomes available to everyone on July 26.

Those who had access to one of the previous alpha tests should automatically be able to return for the beta. Although the first alpha test was private, a lot was revealed to the public during the second alpha test.

The second way to get involved with the Early Access portion of the MultiVersus Beta involves linking a WB account to Twitch. From here, anyone can get in by watching just an hour of MultiVersus from a stream while drops are enabled.

Purchasing the "Founder's Pack" is the third way that players can gain access to the MultiVersus Beta. As of right now, it's currently not known how much the Founder's Pack will cost or what it consists of for MultiVersus.

The final way to get access is to be registered to compete at MultiVersus at Evo 2022. This is in reference to the $100,000 MultiVersus Beta tournament taking place at Evo 2022 that spans from August 5, 2022 and ends on August 7, 2022.

A total of 16 characters have been revealed for the MultiVersus Beta. Returning from the last MultiVersus Alpha are Taz, Velma, Arya Stark, Batman, Bugs Bunny, Finn the Human, Garnet, Harley Quinn, Jake the Dog, Reindog, Shaggy, Steven Universe, Superman, Tom & Jerry and Wonder Woman.

For the first time ever, Iron Giant will also be available to use in MultiVersus during the beta period. As one might expected, the character is absolutely gigantic compared to the rest of the fighters.

Uniquely, the Iron Giant is armed with a Rage Meter that fills up under certain conditions. We suspect that the Iron Giant's Rage Meter is somehow tied to his other "form" as seen in the movie.

Once the beta begins, only a small selection of fighters will be available from the get-go. The rest of the roster will have to be unlocked via the game's in-game currency.

However, the process of unlocking Wonder Woman is as simple as completing the game's tutorial. It will be important to remember that everything unlocked during the beta period will carry over into the full release.
