Warner Bros. is bringing the holiday spirit with the latest update to its crossover platform fighting game from Player First Games, MultiVersus. During this ongoing winter-themed event, FestiVersus, players can obtain a number of new in-game collectibles.

From new character Variants to Christmassy Profile Icons, there’s a good deal of new content players can look forward to over the next month. Here’s everything MultiVersus fans need to know about the FestiVersus event.

FestiVersus start date and cosmetics

FestiVersus kicked off on December 14 and will continue until January 17, 2023. To celebrate the event, a number of thematic character costumes were added into the game. These include Holiday Reindog and Ugly Sweater Superman, which are exclusively available through in-game missions.

Meanwhile, players can obtain a number of new skins by spending Gleamium. The following Variants all cost 800 Gleamium:

  • Ugly Sweater Arya
  • Ugly Sweater Batman
  • Ugly Sweater Finn
  • Ugly Sweater Jake
  • Ugly Sweater Velma

Players can also get the Merry Mogwai Gizmo Variant for a more sizable 1,500 Gleamium. Finally, while technically unrelated to the theme of the event, the MultiVersus developers also added Black Adam’s The Man In Black Variant, which is based on Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson’s appearance in the recent “Black Adam” movie. To get The Man In Black, players will have to part with 2,000 Gleamium.

Like the Monster Mash Halloween event, during which players could earn Candy Corn to spend in a limited-time shop, FestiVersus introduced the Holiday Cookie Shop where players can spend their Holiday Cookies. Here are all of the available rewards in this shop and the amount of Holiday Cookies they cost:

  • Gingerbread Toast Profile Icon – 500
  • Let It Snow Sticker – 600
  • Snowman Sledding Ringout – 5,000
  • Ugly Sweater Superman – 12,000

Through the login rewards calendar, MultiVersus players can get well over 6,000 Holiday Cookies just by logging in every day. However, players can earn additional Holiday Cookies by playing matches. The amount of cookies they will earn after each match depends on whether they won or lost, what mode they were playing, and whether they used a holiday Variant (including The Man In The Black).

Here’s a rundown of how many Holiday Cookies players can expect to earn after any given match:

  • Singles, Doubles or Silly Queue loss – 10
  • Singles, Doubles or Silly Queue win – 20
  • Singles, Doubles or Silly Queue loss where at least one team member used a holiday Variant – 20
  • Free-for-all loss – 20
  • Singles, Doubles or Silly Queue win where at least one team member used a holiday Variant – 40
  • Free-for-all win – 40
  • Free-for-all loss while using a holiday Variant – 40
  • Free-for-all win while using a holiday Variant – 80

Snowball Fight

Finally, the FestiVersus event introduced a new game mode into the Silly Queue known as Snowball Fight. The core gameplay is similar to that of a Doubles match, except with the addition of snowball items that spawn throughout the stage.

Getting hit by a snowball applies the Snowman debuff. After incurring four stacks of the Snowman debuff, the player will be Frozen, allowing opponents to get a free hit while they are trapped in a block of ice.

During a Snowball Fight, there will also be Ice Storms periodically during the match. These Ice Storms summon giant flaming balls of ice that fall from the sky. Making contact with one of these will instantly cause the player to be Frozen.
