I talked fairly recently about my unexpected obsession with Injustice: Gods Among Us (Free) on mobile, and the game has proven incredibly popular ever since its launch just over a year ago. NetherRealm Studios has been wonderful about updating Injustice with new features and characters, but ever since its release fans have been clamoring for one major new feature: multiplayer. Well, today it was announced that multiplayer is indeed coming to Injustice on mobile, along with a ton of new characters. You can see the very first look of Injustice multiplayer in this DC All Access video recorded during WonderCon. The relevant Injustice stuff starts at about 30 seconds in.
Now, it doesn’t appear that this is direct, head-to-head multiplayer, as that wouldn’t really work within the structure of Injustice on mobile. More likely it’s an online leaderboard-style competition, but we’ll have to wait for more details to be revealed to know exactly how it will work. What was apparent from that video is that there are tons of new characters in the works, and also what looks like new types of (team-based?) finishing moves. As an avid Injustice mobile player, I’m incredibly excited for whatever Warner Bros. and NetherRealm have in store. The Injustice: Gods Among Us Facebook page as well as their Twitter account are two good places to keep your eye on should they reveal more information, as is our very own forum thread which is where I cam across this news myself. If any more details surrounding multiplayer or new characters for Injustice are given, I’ll be sure to let you know.
Update: Hmmm, here is a screen capture of the multiplayer screen shown in the video above. Perhaps this will be a head-to-head type of multiplayer? What do you guys think?
