The Ultimate Universe might be specific to Marvel, but DC’s super heroes can get ultimate too—at least if we’re talking about the video game versions that appear in “Injustice: Gods Among Us.”
Warner Bros. Interactive and DC Entertainment revealed that a new version of the popular fighting game is on the way on November 12 (or November 29 in Europe and elsewhere). The “Injustice: Gods Among Us Ultimate Edition” will be priced like a normal title, yet it will include the original game and all of the DLC NetherRealm Studios has concocted thus far. That means Lobo, Batgirl, Martian Manhunter, Zatanna, Zod, and Scorpion are all on hand right out of the box.
Other extras include 40 character skins and 60 S.T.A.R. Labs missions. Players in the Americas will also receive the music soundtrack with exclusive music from Jane’s Addiction and 11 other tracks.
Perhaps the most interesting part of the announcement is that along with PS3, Xbox 360, PC, and PlayStation Vita versions of the “Ultimate Edition,” there’s also one coming for PS4 (making it a launch title,one would assume). The next gen iteration has remastered visuals, Touchpad functionality, video sharing and streaming, and more, all thanks to some extra work put in by High Voltage.
Warner Bros. is touting that with all the DLC thrown in, “Ultimate Edition” is a $120 value for half the price or less. One thing’s for sure: if you haven’t picked up “Injustice” yet, this will be the one to get.
