If you’re in the (presumably small) subset of people who are both looking forward to the upcoming Batman vs. Superman film and still playing the Injustice: Gods Among Us iOS game, you’ll be excited to know that a new update has tossed the two properties together like some kind of super salad.

The film’s release is still three weeks away, but the clash of heroes could be happening in your iPhone or iPad right now if you don’t mind putting in some work. Check out the new characters in action in the trailer below.

Adding four new challenge characters, players can now expect to confront the likes of Killer Frost, Luchadore Bane, Arkham Origins Deathstroke and Red Son Batman, all of whom will go live in the coming weeks. The interface for challenges has also been reworked, meaning that it’s now a whole lot easier to tell how many challenge levels it is that you’ve completed, and what the rewards are for each one.

Injustice: Gods Among Us To Unleash Multiplayer Mode & New Characters



DC Comics comic game, Injustice: Gods Among Us, will be getting a new mobile multiplayer mode and tons of new characters, according to reports coming out of WonderCon.

Developed by NetherRealm and published by Warner Brothers, the fighting game is one of a very select few that gets it right on touch-based devices — faithfully translating the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 console game to Apple’s mobile operating system.

Until now, however, playing the game on iOS has been a solitary experience. That looks like it will be rectified in a future game update, as a video from DC All Access reveals a multiplayer mode in the works.
