Are you also wondering why “some of my previously unlocked characters are now locked in the multiverse”? Multiversus Open Beta has now started, just a week after Early Access. The crossover platformer 2v2 fighting game is already breaking records, with over 140,000 concurrent players on Steam. It’s over 100,000 from Mortal Kombat 11’s peak. A big part of this is that the game is completely free to play.
MultiVersus Previously Unlocked Characters Locked
Thus, a lot of FGC aficionados are definitely going to jump in to at least try the game. With the game being free-to-play, part of the monetization is unlocking new characters to play. And this is what confused some players at the start of the open beta. If your unlocked characters have now disappeared and are locked again in the multiverse, this article will show you what really happened.
Why are my previously unlocked characters locked in MultiVersus?
As we have already mentioned, Multiverse is an F2P game. And part of that model, unfortunately, includes the fact that you need to unlock most characters with real money or in-game currency. However, it does offer a weekly free rotation of game characters.
In this, a total of four characters can be played for free for seven consecutive days. And this group of characters will move around every week. And this is where the confusion has arisen.
Unfortunately, how this free character rotation actually works is not properly explained. Thus, when Early Access debuted last week, many thought the first batch of free characters — Shaggy, Jake, Taz and Harley Quinn — was free from really good, as some kind of early roster. Wish this had not happened. He was also a part of the first week’s free rotation.
It’s a new week, for example a new set of free characters – Finn, Garnet, and Superman and the Raindog. And if you haven’t unlocked last week’s free characters, they’re now locked. So there you have it, so your previously unlocked characters are now locked.
The special news is that the progress you have made with them will be permanent there. And, whenever you decide to unlock them, they’ll still be at the level you’ve achieved with them while they were in free rotation.
