MultiVersus Is The Most Popular Free-To-Play Game On Xbox Right Now

Look, this writer right here didn't expect to see it, but MultiVersus is kind of blowing up. The Smash Bros-like always looked as though it could provide a solid alternative to the Nintendo series on Xbox, but I never expected it to be this popular right out of the gate.

And by 'this popular', we mean the most popular free game on Xbox in the UK and the US. MultiVersus is currently beating the likes of Fortnite, Fall Guys and Warzone at the top of the free-to-play pile on Xbox!

It's also important to note that MultiVersus is still in 'beta' at present, before a full release is expected in the near future. We say 'beta' because, well, Fortnite remained in the same development stage for years before Epic finally labelled it as a fully-released 1.0 title.

It'll be interesting to see where things go from here, and if this fighter can remain as popular as it is right now on Xbox. Pure Xbox editor Fraser has been keen to remind us that he saw this one coming, and our staff writer PJ O'Reilly has enjoyed his time with it so far, so yeah, maybe MultiVersus is here to stay!

Have you tried WB's free-to-play fighter yet? What are your thoughts? Let us know in the comments.
