Today’s launch of the Injustice: Gods Among Us Ultimate Edition represents the non-stop efforts of a huge group of talented developers who have been hard at work since Injustice hit store shelves. We had two lofty goals: support our fans with more additional content than any other fighting game, and make this Ultimate Edition package available on the same day for all PlayStation fans — regardless of their favorite platform.
Players can experience Injustice: Gods Among Us Ultimate Edition on PS3 and PS Vita. And for everyone lucky enough to get a PS4 on launch day, they can experience the game running at 60 frames per second in native 1080p!
In addition to the awesome PS4 architecture that allowed us to go with 1080p at 60 FPS, the new features of the hardware fit Injustice perfectly, and even allowed us to add support for wish-list features like video sharing in a more seamless way than we ever thought possible. The first time we pushed the “share” button on a PS4 controller and saw how streaming gameplay to the web just worked, we knew this technology had the ability to offer every player the same awesome tournament experiences that currently requires dedicated devices and complicated setups. I can’t wait to watch the first streaming tournament of a group of friends who have suddenly been empowered with the sort of tools that only professional gamers previously had access to.
And thanks to the awesome PS4 upgrade program, gamers who don’t yet have a PS4 but who want Injustice: Gods Among Us Ultimate Edition can get the content-packed PS3 version now, and when they’re ready, can upgrade to the PS4 version for just about ten bucks.
And on PS Vita, Injustice: Gods Among Ultimate Edition will be the first time players can enjoy the console version of the game on-the-go. Even after realizing how powerful the machine was when we worked on Mortal Kombat, we were worried that the giant, multi-tiered environments and constant world destruction would be impossible at 60 FPS on a portable device — but we are thrilled that the team at Armature Studio managed to really flex the powerful hardware to pull off the amazing graphical features that are so important to what makes Injustice such a unique experience.
With more than a hundred completely custom character models (and even a new PS4 exclusive model), six awesome DLC characters including General Zod and Lobo, and 60 completely custom S.T.A.R. Labs Missions, Injustice Gods: Among Us Ultimate Edition is truly an awesome deal. Whether it’s on PS3, Vita, or the brand new PS4, we’re thrilled to have had this opportunity to work with PlayStation to provide an incredible experience that is tailored to take advantage of your platform of choice.
