If you’re feeling a little anxious to get into the “Injustice: Gods Among Us” universe you may want to grab your iOS device. To coincide with the upcoming console release on April 16th, a free-to-play version of DC Comics brawler has been released for iPhone and iPad.
Developed by the same team responsible for “Batman: Arkham City Lockdown,” Injustice for iOS functions as a standalone game, but features crossover elements to enhance the console version as well. For instance, if you sign up for a WBID account (something you’ll also want for “Infinite Crisis“) you’ll be able unlock cross-platform rewards including skins and other perks.
Unlike its console counterpart, Injustice on iOS features 3-on-3 tag team matches and NetherRealm has thankfully passed on the virtual joysticks. Instead, players will duke it out using swipe and tap gestures, such as holding two fingers on the screen to block.
If micro-transaction were the first thing to pop into your head when you saw “free-to-play” you though right. Fortunately, NetherRealm insists that everything can be unlocked by simply playing the game and spending money will only speed things up.
