A lot has changed since Injustice: Gods Among Us first released on the App Store. The roster has gotten bigger, lots of little things have been tweaked, and the game has generally been made all the better for it. The new 2.0 update looks like it’s doing all that, and more.
First and foremost is the addition of online multiplayer. That’s right, now you can pit your elite Batman against your friends and mock their pitiful bronze Green Lantern over the internet! That’s not sarcasm, it actually sounds pretty sweet. Then there’s the inclusion of leaderboards, so you can be even more competitive with each other. Match replays will probably help with that, too. A bunch of new characters have been made available as well, including Shazam and Catwoman from Batman Returns. And what better way to break those new characters in then by equipping them with new gear cards that can be attached to characters to boost their stats?
You can download the newest version of Injustice: Gods Among Us right now for free.
The game makes the player pick sides. Does one help the Living Machines Lab or work to thwart it? Multiple choices, interactions and differing endings sew the gameplay together. The game promises to flow smoothly with the beginning of the movie.
Transcendence: Origins is available for free on the App Store.

Have you been enjoying the hybrid CCG/one-touch fighting game that is Injustice: Gods Among Us? Do you still play it regularly? Well if so, keep at it. And if not you might want to dive back in.
The freemium fighter featuring fan-favorite DC characters (sorry, I ran out of Fs) has recently surpassed one billion (one BILLION) play sessions, and to celebrate Warner Bros. Interactive is giving players a chance to earn major Power Credits. Just play the game for a bit from today (1/30) through Sunday (2/2) and you’ll bank 30,000 of the things. That’s 30K Power Credits just for playing through the weekend. Not a bad deal, right?
If you already have Injustice: Gods Among Us, just keep playing. Otherwise, if you’d like to take advantage of the offer, you can download it for free and start pummeling Sinestro. Because Sinestro is a jerk.
