Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and DC Entertainment has announced that the free-to-play Injustice: Gods Among Us for iPad, iPhone and iPod touch is now offering an all-new multiplayer mode. Developed from the ground up by NetherRealm Studios, you 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.
