[Updated] MultiVersus 'Starter Mission - Check out the Settings' not working, issue under investigation (workaround inside)

New updates are being added at the bottom of this story…….

Original story (published on July 26, 2022) follows:

The much-anticipated Warner Bros. brawler — MultiVersus — will be available in open beta from July 26. The early access version was released on July 19.

However, MultiVersus is far from perfect with users complaining about lag or latency issues and broken ‘Knockback Influence’ training, among other issues.

MultiVersus ‘Starter Mission – Check out the Settings’ not working

Players that bought the battle pass received a Starter Mission that says ‘Check out the settings’. Without completing this mission, you can’t progress further and get new missions.

According to recent reports, many players are unable to finish the starter quest or mission even after checking out the settings multiple times (1,2,3,4,5,6,7).

Stater mission issue

The challenge doesn’t want to complete because there’s some sort of bug on Steam Multiversus. I’ve already tried changing something in my settings to complete the challenge but it still wont give it to me. On top of that, I am not able to start on my battle pass missions because im stuck on the “check out settings” starter missions.

I can’t complete the mission to enter the settings I’ve entered everywhere I changed settings and no sucess I’ve been since the beginning of the beta with this mission active and nothing happens.

Issue under investigation

Fortunately, MultiVersus developers confirmed that the Starter Mission issue is currently been investigated. However, they haven’t provided an ETA for a fix at the moment.

We have come across a few workarounds that you can give a try and see if they fix the issue for you.

For some Steam users, deleting the “Savegames” folder seems to fix the issue for them.

If you happen to play the game on PlayStation 5, you can follow these steps:

1. Delete game.

2. Delete save file of the game. (You will not lose anything because it is cloud saved)

3. Download again.

4. Start up game as usual

5. Start a match to the screen where you select a character so you get to choose which region your in.
