Even though you'll have to wait a few days for the console version to arrive, fans of Injustice 2 won't have to go that long without getting into the fighting action.
Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, alongside DC Entertainment, have announced the release of Injustice 2 for mobile devices. The game is now available to download for free on both iOS and Android, offering a plethora of fighters to choose from, along with exciting new modes and visceral fighting gameplay, similar in nature to the original Injustice: Gods Among Us.
"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."
The game's description is as follows:
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.
There's also a unique Gear system, where players can collect, upgrade and customize gear for their favorite fighters. And once the console version is released, there will also be cross-platform functionality, where daily objectives can be unlocked for exclusive rewards on both types of devices.
The game can be downloaded for iOS here, and over on Google Play here. There are Microtransactions, but you should be able to get a majority of the game's content for no charge. It's certainly worth trying out while waiting for the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 versions to arrive this Tuesday.
