The wraparound cover art for January's Monsters of the Multiverse -- an updated compilation of existing D&D monsters -- has been revealed. The cover features an astral dreadnaught, the same monsters which adorned AD&D's Manual of the Planes in 1987.

The front cover had been revealed previously, but this is the clearest picture yet of the full art piece by Greg Rutkowski. Mordenkainen Presents Monsters of the Multiverse is part of the 3-book gift set which also includes Xanathar's Guide to Everything and Tasha's Cauldron of Everything, all together in a slipcase.

Monsters of the Multiverse is "a treasure trove of creature related material from previous products compiled into one book and updated." Improvements are based on feedback, rebalancing monsters with new and old art.

The book contains over 250 monsters, and 30 playable races, including all of the setting agnostic races that have been published outside the Player's Handbook.

Some content from Witchlight, Fizban's, and Strixhaven was influenced by Monsters of the Multiverse.

The books is available first in the gift set, but will also be available separately later in the year.

I got the other gift set (alternate cover) so... yeah. Moreover, I don't have Volo neither Mordenkainen so I guess it makes even more sense to go for that one. That would be cool to play it though, not just collecting it.

If you already own the books these come from, I can't see buying this. Pretty disappointed if this is one of the major releases next year.

Plus, let's face it, monster books from other publishers are much more interesting.

Probably a hard pass on this one. We get only a few 5e books each year.... filling up the slot with what is essentially the "clip show" of monster books is not what I'm looking for.

The stat blocks would have to be wholesale changes (like a redo of monster math and abilities) to make me interested. Streamlining and cleaning of spells is just not enough to warrant another investment in the same monsters.

To be fair, this was originally going to be a 2021 release, it just got delayed past the holidays. So it shouldn't count for one of 2022's "slots."
