MultiVersus Season 1 Battle Pass causes controversy over Gleamium rewards

MultiVersus Season 1 launched today, and with it came the game’s first Battle Pass, though the latter is already causing controversy over the Gleamium rewards… or lack thereof. As players have to buy premium currency Gleamium to get the Battle Pass in the first place, players were hoping to get some of it back through rewards, but this is not the case.

The one type of reward missing from the MultiVersus Season 1 Battle Pass is the Gleamium. Traditionally in games that have a Battle Pass, players face an initial cost to purchase the Battle Pass. But throughout the season, they can earn enough Premium currency or points to be able to exchange these for the next season’s Battle Pass. This means that those who play the game the most will not have to continue paying for future Battle Passes. MultiVersus seems to have avoided this. The game’s Battle Pass can only be purchased with Gleamium, but there is no Gleamium anywhere in the rewards list above, meaning players will need to purchase more premium currency to get future Battle Passes.

This has caused controversy among players who are disappointed that MultiVersus does not follow a premium currency pattern similar to games such as Fortnite and Call of Duty. Others, however, have jumped to the defense of the pass, pointing to the $10 cost spread over four months and the high Gleamium value of all the other rewards that players receive across the 50 levels of the pass. Developer Player First Games has not yet commented.
