MultiVersus 1.01 update patch notes: Morty release, Finn buffs, Iron Giant nerfs, more

MultiVersus Patch NotesWarner Bros.

The new MutliVersus 1.01 update is coming in hot on August 23, bringing some quality-of-life balance updates alongside Morty’s long-awaited release in the brawler. Before it arrives, we’ve already got the full patch notes to get you ahead of the curve. Here’s all there is to know.

In light of the long list of changes having launched with MultiVersus Season 1, the upcoming MultiVersus 1.01 patch is definitely on the smaller end of the spectrum. Releasing open August 23, the latest MultiVersus Patch update marks the arrival of Morty alongside a number of key balance adjustments.

From nerfs impacting the likes of Iron Giant and Velma to hefty buffs for Arya and Finn, there’s still plenty to keep on top of.

Of note for this particular update is the fact this a server-based patch update only — thereby it doesn’t affect local or offline play and only impacts online play.

What’s changing in the MultiVersus 1.01 update?

MultiVersus Morty Releases

It feels like the community has been waiting a good while for this character, but he’s finally here. MultiVersus Morty releases on August 23, so get that in-game currency saved up and ready to go once he arrives.

Morty is an expert class fighter in MultiVersus — thereby will likely cost as much as the other expert fighters.

On top of this, players can get a feel for some new characters with the free rotation changing up. These are the new free characters from August 15 to August 30. Make sure to try them out to help inform your committed purchases.

Finn buffed and Iron Giant Nerfed in MultiVersus 1.01

It seems the developers nerfed Finn a bit too aggressively in the previous Season 1 update, and are now attempting to redirect some of his power into other aspects of his kit.

In addition, the Velma and Iron Giant combo has been dominating the game, leaving a very small opening for opponents to react. Devs are directly addressing this duo by nerfing both characters, with a bigger emphasis on decreasing Iron Giant’s often overwhelmingly powerful kit.

Iron GiantIron giant is currently dominating with abnormally high win rates at every skill level. Iron Giant’s Neutral Special with stacked cooldown reduction and Velma are causing too few windows for opponents to counterplay.

  • – Air Up Attack:
    • Hit boxes shrank to more accurate fit the attack visuals
