Game Info

GAME NAME: Injustice: Gods Among Us

DEVELOPER(S): NetherRealm


PLATFORM(S): Wii U, PS3, Xbox 360

GENRE(S): Fighting

RELEASE DATE(S): 17 April 2013


Amazon in Germany has listed the first pack of DLC for Injustice: Gods Among Us as "Blackest Night". The DLC appears to be legitimate and even includes a trailer (albeit in German) which details zombie skins for the characters and a new "zombie mode", turning all of the characters into the living dead.

The DLC appears to be based on the "Blackest Night" storyline from the DC universe in which multiple DC super heroes are brought back from the dead by Nekron - leader of the Black Lantern Corps - in a plot to eliminate all life in the universe.

Amazon currently list the DLC as a pre-order exclusive, but as we all know, these things usually find themselves available for purchase sometime after release.

[UPDATE] We can now reveal that Injustice: Gods Among Us Blackest Night Edition is available for pre-order at JB Hifi in Australia. The Blackest Night Edition includes the "Blackest Night" Zombie Mode as mentioned above and is exclusive to JB. Also exclusive to JB and available with the Blackest Night Edition is the Arkham City "Skin Pack" DLC which gives Batman, Joker and Catwoman their Arkham City appearance.

If a communist Superman is more your thing than zombies are then EB Games has you covered. The Injustice: Gods Among Us Red Son Edition is available for pre-order at EB Games. Previously revealed in a developer diary, the Red Son edition includes alternate skins for Superman, Wonder Woman and Solomon Grundy and 20 additional in game missions set within the Red Son universe and storyline.
