MultiVersus modders hit by DMCA attacks

MultiVersus quickly rose to fame once it became clear that Warner Bros. Games was serious about producing a smashed Competitor that would not be limited to Nintendo devices. Featuring popular and well known characters from IPs like DC, Scooby Doo, tom jerryand Looney Tunesthe game’s open beta has already garnered high praise and remarkable momentum.

It didn’t take long to find a new and accessible free-to-play experience that’s surprisingly easy to mod MultiVersus became a real melting pot for a young modding community. However, Warner Bros.

It is immediately worth noting that the vast majority of existing MultiVersus Mods do not affect game balance. In a recent interview with VG24/7, modders spoke about this topic, explaining how much the community is focused on character asset swapping and other visual changes, meaning the upcoming changes MultiVersus For example, nerfs could not be undone. A modder named Ghost explained that while they’re not necessarily surprised at how WB is handling the situation, they’re certainly upset with the way this is being handled.


It looks like all celebrities MultiVersus Mods aim to change a character’s model or replace it with a completely different, custom character model instead. These changes also do not include hitbox changes, meaning mods are entirely local and should not affect gameplay in any way. Even though MultiVersus already boasts a rich character roster, it’s no surprise that modders like Ghost are taking the opportunity to also create brand new custom models for players to download.

In fact, modders could bring community creations to life, such as Bun_Bois Custom MultiVersus Raindog Skins. From the looks of it, however, it doesn’t seem out of the question that Warner Bros. will do whatever it takes to discourage the community from interacting with mods in the future. As it stands, the situation is largely unresolved, and neither modders nor players know what to expect from the developer on this front.


Unfortunately, this likely means the fan-made Saul Goodman character trait is retired MultiVersus will never be made. Of course, whether or not WB enforces DMCA strikes in the future wouldn’t necessarily affect modders, since character reskins aren’t easily recognized by the client. The problem instead lies in the developer’s ability to downplay the modding community from the start, as taking the limelight out of the spotlight could reduce the community’s interest in modding and thus prevent this niche from growing.

MultiVersus is now available as open beta for PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One and Xbox Series X/S.
