‘Injustice: Gods Among Us’ Features Challenge Tower

'Injustice Gods Among Us' now has a challenge tower

Injustice: Gods Among Us, DC Comics’ latest super hero brawler, now has a challenge tower.

Abel Girmay of Destructoid says that NetherRealm, the creators of Injustice: Gods Among Us, invited them to take one last look at the brawler before the demo hits on April 2.

A major worry was that the interactive parts of the stages would break the balance of Injustice like they do in Mortal Kombat. The DC Comics brawler has thankfully given the player the option to turn off the interactables and even place their brawler wherever they want in the stage from the start.

Play-testers, actual tournament players with a particular hatred for Mortal Kombat, have said they enjoyed what Injustice: Gods Among Us let them do. Senior producer Adam Urbano said, “I should mention we’ve had a lot of tournament players … help us tweak and balance the game … come and play, and they loved the interactables, which really shocked me.”

As far as patching goes, NetherRealm has decided to have the game able to patch itself without needing the full approval of Sony or Microsoft. Using this process, the patch will be available much more quickly. They commented, “Stuff like damage done, frame inputs, lag delay — you name it, we can change it and have it live with only 24 hours’ notice to Sony and Microsoft.”

Injustice: Gods Among Us will come with a simplified moves list you can bring up with the Start button, and this time around, you can tag your favorite moves to the in-game list. This means you don’t have to scroll and search through a complex list of moves every time you want to look them up, cutting down on the “Are you done yet?” annoyance other players tend to experience.

The challenge tower is a new take on fighting game story modes, in that you take on odd missions such as controlling Catwoman’s cat Isis and having to make your way into a building with a set amount of times you need to meow. That sounds like it could be fun.
