The Matrix and Friday the 13th villains join the MultiVersus roster

The Matrix and Friday the 13th villains join the MultiVersus roster

The MultiVersus roster is expanding again, this time with two big bad guys: Jason Voorhees from the Friday the 13th horror franchise and Agent Smith from the Matrix films. Those two villains will join a pair of recently confirmed additions to MultiVersus: the Joker and Adventure Time’s Banana Guard.

Developer Player First Games and Warner Bros. Games confirmed Jason and Agent Smith in a new cinematic trailer hyping up the impending relaunch of MultiVersus. And if you comb through Monday’s new MultiVersus trailer, you might spot teases for a few more unannounced characters. At one point (about 50 seconds in), we see Bugs Bunny crack open the Warner Bros. water tower, from which a few props escape. Those items appear to be Aquaman’s trident, Samurai Jack’s katana, and Octi, the beloved plush octopus of Bubbles from The Powerpuff Girls. There’s also a broomstick, which could belong to the Wicked Witch of the West from The Wizard of Oz or someone from the Harry Potter franchise.

There are also background references to DC superheroes Green Lantern, Robin in his Teen Titans Go! form, and Raven, though it’s unclear if those are teases or simply stage dressing.

Player First and WB seem to be leaning toward bad guys for the debut season of MultiVersus’ relaunch, season 1 of which is titled Puns & Villainy. So if you’re guessing at new additions in the coming weeks and months, think supervillains.

MultiVersus comes back on May 28, with new additions Joker, Jason Voorhees, and Banana Guard available at launch, and Agent Smith coming sometime later in season 1. They’ll join existing characters featured in the trailer: Wonder Woman; Velma; Bugs Bunny; Marvin the Martian; Iron Giant; Rick Sanchez (who apparently knows Batman’s secret identity); Stripe from Gremlins; Finn the Human; and Cake the Cat, a variant of Adventure Time’s Jake the Dog.

WB’s free-to-play fighting game will be available again for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Windows PC, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X next week. It will boast a major new feature called Rifts, MultiVersus’ take on a PvE mode.
