Plot

Since the Justice League's Superman had defeated the One Earth Regime's High Councillor Superman, Batman and his Insurgency have been working to piece back together the world. This hasn't been easy as they had to deal with the remnants of the Regime, a new villain group called "The Society," and the arrival of Brainiac.

Playable characters

There are 28 base game characters, and 10 DLC characters. Darkseid was a pre-order bonus, but was made available as standalone DLC separate from the Fighter Packs. There are 16 new playable characters, with 13 returning characters from the previous installment. These characters are:

Mobile app

Like its predecessor, a free-to-play mobile app based on Injustice 2 was released for iOS and Android devices on May 11, 2017. The app was soft launched in the Philippines App Store in February 2017. It maintains several gameplay features from the original, including the swipe-based fighting mechanics, card collection, and three-on-three battles, but introduces various changes to the game's overall formula. Players are now given the ability to move around the stage freely during combat, as well as use jumping and crouching attacks. The stamina management system returns; however, instead of each character receiving their own allotment of stamina, the player is given a single pool of stamina which depletes after every match. Fights also require higher levels of stamina than the previous game. The app includes login bonuses; daily objectives, which offer experience and coins; and achievements, which are long-term goals that reward players with premium gems and "hero shards" used for unlocking and leveling up characters. It also features game mechanics similar to those found in the console versions, such as ability and gear upgrades. The app includes a story mode, which will be released chapter by chapter in subsequent updates. According to Google Play, the Android version of the app has been downloaded at least ten million times since its release.

Reception

Injustice 2 received "generally favorable" reviews on Metacritic getting a metascore of 86/100 on PC,[4] 87/100 on PS4,[5] 89/100 on Xbox One,[6] and 77/100 on iOS.[7] While its Legendary Edition received a metascore of 88/100 on PS4.[8]
