Injustice (Mobile) - V2.2 is HERE and It's War!
Version 2.2 of Injustice: Gods Among Us posted on Apple's App Store for iPhone and iPad today. No word when the Android version will be released.
The premise of NetherRealm Studios' fighting mobile app hasn't really changed much from Day 1. You still have 3 on 3 teams battling it out Mortal Kombat style, you still pick from a variety of DC Universe heroes and villains. And you still beat the snot of AI team's or other player's team to get rewards.
What's new is the always growing roster of characters and their unique abilities, that can be used in countless combinations, new gear to equip your evolving fighter with, and a more competitive player-vs-player environment that teaches 'Turn the other cheek, only if you're going to back hand that fool.'
Revenge! Now, We're Cooking, Huh?
One gripe of the PvP mode is that you're really not fighting another player, only their team controlled by the AI, but worse is your carefully selected and high-trained warriors are also controlled by the same unimaginative AI. So, the odds are NOT in your favor for good defense unless your team is stacked with some high-end gear.
"Oh Magnificent one, he's just one, but you are three, (*Non growls*) or four, if you count him twice." - Lex Luthor (Superman 2)
Since match selection is purely random match-making, one couldn't get righteous payback. Until now. You don't have to sit passively watching the post-fight game footage, you can gear up and go after them.
At long last, Zatanna will be joining the ranks. Also, a Silver Level Raven is coming, too. Though when Raven first appeared, it was rumored that she may have been meant to be a silver from the start - similar to Killer Frost.
The Red Son crew will be getting a new member in the form of Red Son Green Lantern. A King of Atlantis version of Aquaman is scheduled to appear soon. Not sure how many were clamoring for a new Aquaman, but you got him.
Also, it's rumored that a Cassandra Cain version of Batgirl might be swinging her way onto the roster.
And look for Ares. He's still one of the original console characters that has NOT made the leap to mobile. The God of War is likely planning a sneak attack.
Of Course You Know, This Means War!
Is War on the horizon? NetherRealms is hinting that upcoming PvP seasons will be dishing out some surprise goodies. I'm guessing this will motivate players to be a little more... enthusiastic about battling online for supremacy.
The term War sounds like it's more than just new prizes on the table. Maybe, Ares will make himself known there. Be looking for the warning signs.
I Can See!
One complaint by players was the lack of a search or sort for their Collection as well as look through the Store with more options than just alphabetical order. Now, the User Interface has been ungraded. And it's a nice improvement for us using iPhones and their small 4" screen.
This interface has added new tabs like Promote and Add Character The Add Character and Support Cards also can show what cards have NOT been purchased as well. Nifty feature.
Also, if you already own a character, you don't buy another copy, you just Promote them to next Elite level. The UI displays the cost and their new stat values before you confirm the purchase.
New gear for PvP has also been added, including items for the upcoming Challenge Mode characters. Expect new support cards as well.
Deryl _8013September 18, 2014, 10:24 amHey Amazon Eliza, is Ares coming as shazam on gold booster pack, or is he a challenge??? And is there a chance u know if he is available or not yet???
Capt. Eliza CreststeelSeptember 18, 2014, 11:19 amContributor- I've seen some sneak pics of Ares but curiously NetherRealm did not mention him by name in their update description even though they teased with the upcoming War promotion for PvP. It makes one wonder if he will not appear until then.
As for myself, I was wondering if a new Challenge Mode would drop yesterday, but none did.
Markus _3142September 17, 2014, 1:49 pmAmazon Eliza, i have a doubt, i missed luchadore bane and deatstroke and red son batman since i started again had no time to put up a team because i want to start clean, so here is the question, is there any chance of getting those three characters from challenge booster pack ????
Capt. Eliza CreststeelSeptember 17, 2014, 2:22 pmContributor- Any previous Challenge Mode characters should now be available in the Challenge booster packs.
combattt_8393September 17, 2014, 12:53 pmI use a hack for Injustice: Gods Among Us that gave me unlimited energy, power credits, boosters, heroes and others. Here it is: http://g4mehacks.com/injustice-gods-among-us-hack/
Capt. Eliza CreststeelSeptember 17, 2014, 2:21 pmContributor- I won't promote any kind of game hacking on Gameskinny, and I'd hate for you to be banned.
Pete_7534September 17, 2014, 9:23 amShazam is still only available in Booster Packs.
Capt. Eliza CreststeelSeptember 17, 2014, 11:08 amContributor- Thanks Pete. I caught that this morning. I misread another post for 2.2 regarding the new UI for the Store/Collection. The person had mentioned Shazam but they were referring to promotion - not purchase. Good eye.
Pete_7534September 17, 2014, 3:54 pm- No problem. I was sad when I saw it. I was hoping to buy more and promote the card.
