What you can do in MultiVersus 1v1 Local Play match
If you ask us, playing MultiVersus in a Local Play is one of the best. In this setting, you can freely use the playable characters and perks during the customized match. We should thank the developers a.k.a. Player First Games! Anyway, let’s move forward to the Local Play settings you can manage.
- Firstly, you can choose whether to play 1v1, Free for All, or Teams (2v2).
- Also, you can manage the time duration of the game, or when you choose a 1v1 match, you can also change the ringouts!
- You can also check to enable or disable Hazards in the match.
