Superhero fighting game Injustice 2 is finally out for the PS4 and Xbox One. The sequel to 2013’s Injustice: Gods Among Us is developed by Mortal Kombat X creator NetherRealm.
Like most console releases the PS4 and Xbox One versions will be playable at midnight local time on May 16 in the US and midnight local time on May 19 in India. So if you were holding out till the game was available digitally to play right after downloading, you don't have to.
Injustice 2 is out now in markets like the US. India gets Injustice 2 on May 19 along with Europe and UK.
In our Injustice 2 review, we found it to be a safe albeit entertaining entry in the series. If you’ve played the original, you’ll be right at home here. Although the complicated Gear System is an unnecessary addition to the game, making it more unwieldy than it needs to be.
Injustice 2 is Rs. 3,499 in India for the PS4 and Xbox One. There’s pre-order DLC for the game as well, which allows you to unlock Darkseid as a playable character.
Certain retailers, such as Games The Shop (which is run by Warner Bros. distributor E-xpress) sell special variants of Injustice 2.

Injustice 2 has an 835.2MB day one patch on the PS4. We discovered this on popping in our retail disc of the game into the console over the weekend. It’s miniscule by modern gaming standards and the patch notes don't say much, claiming “general bug fixes”, "general gameplay fixes", and nothing else.
And if you’re wondering how much of a deal breaker it might be to the experience, we couldn’t see any perceptible differences in our review of Injustice 2.
