If there’s an app that blows away any conventional thought about what an app should be able to do, it was Injustice. Now, as we approach the launch of Injustice 2 in just a few days, Warner Bros. and DC have launched Injustice 2 – the follow-up for Injustice: Gods Among Us. Available as a free download for iPad, iPhone, and Android devices, the game looks like it should build on the previous game nicely, bringing 3 vs. 3 action alongside an incredible cast of heroes and villains. Let’s dig into what NetherRealm Studios has brought for us and see what’s new under the hood:
“With Injustice 2, the team has worked extremely hard to build upon an already successful mobile game to bring a fresh fighting game experience to mobile devices,” said Ed Boon, Creative Director, NetherRealm Studios. “We are excited to have fans experience a few of our favorite new features including upgraded special moves, improved combat and Story Mode, which will be released chapter by chapter.”
Injustice 2 for mobile expands on the hit game Injustice: Gods Among Us with new and improved combat, an engaging story mode, exciting features for gamers of all types and customization options like never before. Designed specifically for mobile devices, Injustice 2 for mobile now offers players the ability to move heroes and villains across the “fight line,” perform jumping and crouching attacks and implement advanced zoning techniques with projectiles, all via touch screen controls. New features offer new and exciting ways to play, including an “Operations” mode allowing players to send characters away on missions and a new “Arena” mode for competitive PvP action.
Similar to Injustice 2 for consoles, Injustice 2 for mobile will feature a unique Gear System where players are encouraged to collect, upgrade and customize gear for their favorite characters. In addition, cross-platform functionality with the console game will allow players to complete daily objectives for special in-game rewards across both platforms.
As I mentioned, Injustice 2 is available as a free download on the App Store, and on Google Play. Meanwhile, the console version will hit PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on May 16th. Stay tuned — it’s about to get punchy!
