Running from May 1927 on PC and consoles
Fans of battling game will be able to call dibs on Batman, Tom & Jerry, and Shaggy, among other eccentric pop-culture characters. From May 1927, Warner Bros. Games is conducting a closed alpha test for a world-colliding platform fighter.
You can now enter the FAQ section by clicking the Closed Alpha Sign Up button. That said, you''ll need a WB Games account to participate.
This is a chance to play the game on PS4, PS4, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S as well as PC. If you were in the prior (NDAd) test on PC and wish to play the console version, youll need to re-register.
If youre selected not everyone will be! an email will be sent on Tuesday, May 17, depending on when the first wave will go out, though WB Games has noted that additional confirmation emails and codes may be distributed throughout the Closed Alpha period.
Everyone who makes the cut will be able to invite up to three friends using the Beta Management menu. There is no need to tune into Twitch for a code drop. This time, anyway.
According to WB Games, cross-play and cross-gen are supported. The Alpha will be available in the Americas, Europe, Australia, and New Zealand.

Itll be at EVO, too
EVO 2022 will be back in Las Vegas from August 57. WB Games will be hosting a 2v2 event with a $100K prize pool.
Although I have avoided many of the combat games that have tried to draw off the formula with different IPs, I must say, the sheer absurdity of some of these lineups is kind of phoning me name. The games free-to-play nature can and may put me off long-term, but it is certainly a simple way to get a foot in the door.
My belief is that this will continue to be the one true king, now and maybe forever. Everything else feels like an all the brands are here! novelty until proved otherwise, included.
