MULTIVERSUS has erected a controversial barrier to unlocking its Halloween items that fans believe will force them to pay to snag any exclusives.
The game caused quite a stir among fans as people enjoyed the free-to-play fighter featuring characters from TV and film.
However, the recent event has caused outrage among fans, as MultiVersus players need to win nearly 800 games to earn or pay for the latest skins.
The MultiVersus Halloween Event starts tomorrow (October 15th) and lasts a month until November 15th.
During this time, players will receive candies for playing matches, which can be used to unlock four exclusive Halloween items.
The items are a Pumpkin Patch profile icon, a Jack-o-Lantern emote sticker, an Epic variant of Mummy Reindog, and an Epic variant of Calico Cake.
To unlock all items, players need 15,650 candies or can buy them with real money.
The most expensive item, the epic Calico Cake variant, a skin for Jake from Adventure Time, costs 12,000 candy, or around US$20 (£18).
For this skin alone, players would have to play 1200 games or win 600 games.
Given a 31-day timeframe for the event, this means that players would need to play 39 games each day during the event to ensure they receive this skin.
Players can purchase a premium skin – for a minimum of $5 (£4.50) – to double the amount of candy earned, but they would still need to win 300 games or participate in 600.
As calculated by VGCtwo players wearing both premium skins would still need to win 261 matches together to earn all of the Halloween items.
Since the announcement, fans have complained about the cost of the items and the high number of matches required to unlock them.
With such a high requirement, players feel compelled to pay for these premium items, which goes against the free-to-play nature of the game.
However, these items are purely cosmetic and will not give you any advantage while playing MultiVersus.
This hasn’t stopped fans’ disappointment that they probably won’t receive these exclusive items.
