Wiz Khalifa has put his hat in the ring to become the next celebrity character on MultiVersus.
The new game, from Player First Games and Warner Brothers, is a free-to-play crossover fighting game with characters coming from DC Comics, HBO, Cartoon Network and more.
Recent players added to the game include Rick and Morty, and Wiz Khalifa has asked Player First to make him the next star of the game.
Sharing a number of tweets last week about MultiVersus, the rapper said: “Ima beast wit Taz but i ain’t Gon lie shaggy my favorite right now,” with the game’s official account responding: “Wiz Khalifa playing MVS… this is the best timeline.”
Khalifa then responded to the tweet, pleading: “Y’all need to make me on the game.”

An NME preview of MultiVersus said: “The fact that not a single penny needs to be spent in order to genuinely play, enjoy and level up throughout the game and no garish advertising is thrust in your face upon launch is a credit to Player First Games and the development of MultiVersus.
“For an open beta the game is well-refined, has plenty of content and the gameplay feels balanced and fair, for the majority of the time. If the advertising stays away, rather ironically I am entirely sold.”
Elsewhere, Mark Hamill could be set to reprise his role as the Joker for MultiVersus as a new datamine has uncovered voice lines that seem to be recorded by him.
Hamill, who is best known for playing Luke Skywalker in the Star Wars series, is also one of the most recognisable voices of the Joker in 1992’s Batman: The Animated Series. His only game credit as the Joker is in the Arkhamverse games by Rocksteady Studios, but that could be set to change if a recent datamine turns out to be true.
A previous datamine in March revealed that the Joker could be arriving to MultiVersus, and the most recent one ,which was published this week by Twitter user LaisulMV, sees the voice lines themselves uploaded to Twitter, which appears to feature Hamill’s voice acting.
This Twitter user regularly shares potential leaks for the game including new characters and additional cosmetics.
