In celebration of more than a year of battles and two billion play sessions, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and DC Entertainment today announced that Injustice: Gods Among Us for iPad, iPhone and iPod touch is now offering an all-new multiplayer mode. Developed from the ground up by award-winning NetherRealm Studios, players can now engage in battle with other players’ teams to score currency, experience and Gear Cards that can equip characters with new powers. This update also brings in brand new Gold Characters, increased promotion and level caps, a new Challenge Character Booster Pack, and Bonus Missions. The Android update is scheduled to be available in May.
The newly available multiplayer mode allows fans to assemble their own custom team of Heroes and Villains to pit against other players’ teams. Battles are waged by engaging other users’ online teams, which are represented by an AI driven squad, with every match awarding Multiplayer Points to the victor. At the end of each Weekly Leaderboard Season, tiered rewards will be distributed to players based on their ranking.
Multiplayer battles can be viewed after the fact via Match Replay, letting players identify their strengths and weaknesses, allowing them to strategically customize their team for the next fight. Also new to the game is the ability to upgrade character stats and performance with Gear that is awarded based on one’s raking in the leaderboard system.
Originally launched in April 2013, Injustice: Gods Among Us is a free-to-play game that features a collectible card mechanic and engages players in 3-on-3 tag-team combat. Players can build up their roster and pit a huge cast of DC Comics’ most popular icons such as Batman, Superman, The Flash, Wonder Woman, Green Arrow, Aquaman and more against one another. Injustice: Gods Among Us players can take this game to the next level through a connected digital ecosystem linking the mobile and console versions, providing in-game benefits through cross-platform play. Fans who play on the mobile version and also own the PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system, PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system or Xbox 360® games and entertainment system versions are able to unlock content in the console versions that is available in the mobile game, and vice versa, by registering for a Warner Bros. ID (WBID) account and playing the game.
