Injustice 2‘s previously unannounced Multiverse mode recently surfaced as the new way to enjoy the game’s single-player experience.
The mode reportedly showed up in a playable build at the recent Insomnia Gaming Festival in Birmingham, England. The mode, previously teased by developer NetherRealm, is pitched as the Injustice equivalent of Mortal Kombat X‘s Living Towers mode, serving as an offline way for players to farm good gear. A description was posted to Shoryuken where the new mode was reported, but the description wasn’t sourced.
“In addition to the campaign, online, and fighting game standard arcade modes, Injustice 2 also introduces the new Multiverse mode. Similar to Mortal Kombat X‘s Towers, the Multiverse allows players to travel to an ever-changing series of parallel worlds in the DC Universe and battle alternate versions of the heroes and villains with various handicaps, stipulations, and goals. Completing the gauntlet, you’ll gain access to various tiers of Motherboxes, which yield new Gear, items, and shaders for your characters.”
A screenshot of the mode from the event reveals its planet-based UI. Six of the seven reported planets are visible in the image, and each planet seems to support one to three objectives that expire after set amounts of time. As for the notches below the planet names, perhaps it pertains to the difficulty level that planet’s current challenges. The original information came through YouTuber Super who details what he learned in a recent video.
In other Injustice 2 news, a leaked image of the Deadshot character’s trait ability also came out during the event, revealing different ammunition types that the fighter can switch between. (Apologies for the low quality.)
Injustice 2 is slated to launch May 16th on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, with a mobile version expected to drop around the same time. Check out our guide to everything we know about the game to stay up to date on all the new reveals.
