Warner Bros. Interactive has announced Injustice 2 Legendary Edition, as well as some upcoming changes to the base game.
The Legendary Edition is basically the Ultimate Edition but cheaper, as it includes all the DLC characters from the three Fighter Packs plus the Premiere Skins that were included in the Ultimate Edition for just $60. This means that you’ll have immediate access to Darkseid, Red Hood, Starfire, Sub-Zero, Black Manta, Hellboy, Raiden, Atom, Enchantress, and the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, plus Reverse-Flash, Black Lightning, Power Girl, Grid, and the John Stewart version of Green Lantern as Premiere Skins. The only Premiere Skins not included in the Ultimate or Legendary Editions are Bizarro, Mister Freeze, Vixen and Golden Age Flash.
Injustice 2 will also see some overall changes when the Legendary Edition launches on March 27th for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. A new Learn Hub will expand on the game’s tutorial offerings, new gear will be added, and most significantly, the character level cap will raise from 20 to 30, with a new augment slot unlocked at the highest level.
If you pre-order the Legendary Edition, you will be treated to some extra goodies, including 11,000 source crystals (almost enough to buy two of the Premiere Skins that weren’t included), a collectible coin, a steel case, and the “Injustice 2 Epic Comic Exclusive Download Steel Card,” whatever that means.
If you haven’t jumped into Injustice 2 already, the Legendary Edition sounds like a great deal for $60, as the three DLC Fighter Packs still cost $20 each. In other words, you’re basically paying for the DLC characters and getting the base game and most of the Premiere Skins (with their unique looks and voice lines) for free.
