Devs consider this the 2.0 version of the game.
Power Rangers: Battle for the Grid

Power Rangers: Battle for the Grid developer, nWay, just released another massive update today for their ever growing fighting game. Today's update, in combination with all previous updates, are apparently so robust that the studio seems to feel comfortable assigning assigning the game as version 2.0.

Specifically, today's update now gives players access to online lobbies, a spectator mode, and crossplay with the PlayStation 4 version of the game. The new online lobbies now allow up to eight players to join together to fight against each other. The lobby system allows up to four different matches to take place at the same time. Those who are not fighting can spectate the matches while they wait.

The addition of crossplay for the PlayStation 4 version means that there is now true crossplay across all available platforms. The PlayStation 4 version was the last holdout as crossplay was previously available between the Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, and PC versions.

On top of today's updates, nWay is quick to point out how many other changes have been made to the game since its initial launch last year.

The culmination of these prior content drops saw the playable character count double from its launch selection. To note, the game shipped with 9 playable characters. The DLC releases, both paid and free, saw another 9 characters added over time. There have been three additional arenas added, an entire story mode added, voiceovers from the original cast were added, crossplay was added, and more. There is also content from the game's two season passes that added various cosmetics to the game.

The game itself can be picked up for just $19.99 (USD). It can be purchased through Steam on PC with additional platforms and purchasing options found on the official site for Power Rangers: Battle for the Grid. Additional details about the game in its current state can be found below.

POWER RANGERS: Battle for the Grid pits current and classic POWER RANGERS and villains from the multiverse’s over 25-year history against one another in epic 3v3 tag team battles. The controls promote simplicity and fluidity, enabling beginners to enjoy the combat system and encouraging advanced players to delve into its gameplay mechanics, which include real-time assist takeover, dynamic defense through push blocking and aerial guard, customizable juggle combos, and a unique Megazord comeback mode.

“We are proud to be able to offer POWER RANGERS: Battle of the Grid players more content and features over the past several months,” said Taehoon Kim, co-founder and CEO of nWay. “With the latest update, the game is now exactly what we had envisioned when we started creating the title knowing that players will enjoy all of the competitive features, immersive story-lines and wide range of characters and arenas that make the game one of the best fighting games available.”
