Injustice 2: Everything You Need To Know

Injustice 2 is the follow-up to Injustice: Gods Among Us. It introduces loot, character customization, and items to its fighting system. It also continues where its predecessor’s story left off, focusing on the aftermath of Batman’s successful insurgency against Superman’s tyrannical empire.

With the game out now for PS4, Xbox One, and PC, we’ve compiled our in-depth review and our most important features and gameplay videos detailing everything you need to know about NetherRealm Studio’s latest fighter. Check back often as we update this article with additional articles and videos.

The Review

“With AI battles, online and local versus matches, the diverse and ever-changing Multiverse, and an impressive story mode, Injustice 2 offers numerous ways of engaging with its characters and testing your abilities without feeling repetitive. This variety is further bolstered by gear. Despite the needlessly complex economy tied to item management, the value of customization and expression that comes with gear ultimately makes up for it. And with over 25 characters to explore, it’s easy to look forward to watching your next character grow while your understanding of the game continues to expand. NetherRealm has delivered a fighting game that can be enjoyed by new players and pros alike in ways that go beyond pure competition. It’s a bar that every fighting game should meet, but one that has up until now seemed out of reach.” — Peter Brown [Full review]

Mass Effect: Andromeda 1.07 Patch Out Now

A new patch has landed for BioWare’s Mass Effect: Andromeda, but don’t expect it to do much.

GameSpot downloaded update 1.07 on PS4 today and found the following patch notes: “Various bug fixes and stability improvements.”

Producer Michael Gamble said on Twitter, “It’s just a hotfix.” Specifically, the update fixes a crash with the SOS quest and a problem with >1080p UI placement. The patch also makes an “athletic outfit available mid-playthrough.”

The patch should be live across PC, Xbox One, and PS4. If you’re encountering issues on PC, Gamble said he recommends going offline in Origin, launching the game, then going back online. Another option is to restart Origin, he said.

Andromeda launched in March and had a mixed reaction, which prompted EA management to respond to concerns about the game. Additionally, a report suggested that the Mass Effect series has been put on hiatus and that staffing changes were underway at BioWare Montreal, with some developers moving over to EA Motive and others now working on BioWare’s new IP.

EA has since confirmed the staffing changes and clarified that there hasn’t been any downsizing. It has not addressed the status of Mass Effect.
