This package contains all DLC since its original release last May, similar to a GOTY edition, without the name. That means that alongside the extra six new characters of Zatanna, Martian Manhunter, Lobo, Batgirl, ZOD and Scorpion, you also have a multitude of additional skins for each character. If you’re a particularly big fan of the DC universe, then you’ll definitely be pleased with the selection on offer. Everything from the Joker’s ‘Red Hood’ costume to Superman’s ‘Man of Steel’ alternative, are here to admire. If that wasn’t enough, then you also have a healthy amount of extra S.T.A.R. LABS missions. Plainly, if you haven’t picked up Injustice yet, then now’s your best chance.
Getting down to brass tax, however, the transition from PS3 to PS4 has largely been unimpressive. Don’t get me wrong, it’s fantastic to see current-gen games make the crossover, as it no longer means I need to change back to my PS3. Though for the most part, of course, that’s solely down to laziness. Whereas games such as Call of Duty: Ghosts or ACIV have seen notable alterations in their Next-Gen counterparts, Injustice seems to have only had a clean, cut n’ paste.
This unfortunately means there aren’t any new shiny graphics or any other noteworthy features to hear of. However, if you’re on PS4, you of course can now make ample use of the ‘Share’ functionality to showcase your best fighting moments with ease, as well as make use of party chat, should you find that a benefit. I can’t say I’m not disappointed that this iteration has seen no new features of extra graphical fidelity, since it’ll give more people a chance to experience the game for the first time.
Injustice: Gods Among Us Ultimate Edition has seen release on a myriad or platforms, including re-release on PS3, Xbox 360 and PC, alongside PS4, but notably neither the Xbox One or Wii U. This also marks the first time the title’s been released on Playstation Vita, therefore allowing you more flexibility to your playtime, and gives the Vita another great fighter to add to its repertoire. We’ve yet to play the title personally, but hope to sometime in the near future and will feed back our impressions.
