E3 2017 is right around the corner and we look forward to experiencing trailers and gameplays of the following games that will be coming out later in the year such as Need for Speed 2017, Star Wars Battlefront II, Gods of War, Uncharted The Lost Legacy and maybe even the new Wolfenstein called The Old Blood. These are most of the games that we are hyped for and we are looking forward to. But today is a special day because the brand new Injustice 2 just came out and I am super excited. If you don’t remember the first trailer came out last year in like around Novermber-ish and since then that has kept people wondering about the new characters and maps that were going to be announced later on in the future. I don’t have all day to talk about the history of the game so let’s jump right in.
I for sure am going to buy this game because of the graphics and new characters especially. Back then in the first Injustice, there weren’t that many characters in the game such as Doctor Fate and there weren’t any better versions of each character such as Batman. Whereas now you have Batman but you can also unlock different kinds such Armored Batman, Armored-Superman etc. We finally have new maps and there is a better story than last time. In the first one, the campaign or story mostly revolved around Batman, Robin, The Joker and Harley Quinn. These were the top characters and there wasn’t any resemblance. In this new story, you have it talk the origins of each character from the DC Universe such as Supergirl. The story starts with Supergirl but without powers running from these robots like in The Terminator. Then she is sent in space and later she becomes Supergirl. The robots were sent by the bad person named Brainiac. He was first a good guy and Batman’s friend but later on turns bad according to the Lego Batman series, Lego Batman 2 and 3.
That is what the story revolves around but what I want to talk about is multiplayer. Multiplayer wasn’t a huge thing in Injustice Gods Amongs Us but DC has done a great job in helping the game designers with this game. In the new game multiplayer is for everyone and you can create your own team in any shape or form. The designers have made it really flexible for the users to come and play online against other people. There is something called Arena which is basically the lobby for everyone. You can see the highest person with the most amounts of credits which you can get by winning against people and once you beat someone you might get 5 arena medals which are a currency used to buy gears and hero shards from the store. Keep in mind that every 24 hours the store will reset with more hero shards in stock or you can spend 50 diamonds to restock immediately. This is basically how the iPhone and Android game was designed so before buying the game on PC or console you should first play the mobile game to get the gist of the game and get a head start on a list of characters that you are looking forward to getting.
I really feel like this game has tons of potential and has so many new features that unique and iconic games have so this game should deserve a 9/10 only because since the graphics are super good and the special ability animations are awesome it can really lag you console or PC but in order to prevent that you can just spend maybe $100 and boost the performance of the device you are using to play this game.
