Injustice 2: Where to Get It

 
 

NetherRealm’s latest fighter Injustice 2 launches this week on May 17. Starring a cast of DC Comics heroes and villains, the game now introduces a gear equipment system, which lets players customise their look, abilities, and stats.  We figured it’d be a good time to wrap up the different places where you can grab the game, and the deals you can expect.

These deals were available at the time of writing. As stock runs out, availability may change.

Digitally via the PlayStation and Microsoft Stores ($119.95)

If you aren’t attached to physical purchases, then digital versions of the game are available on both major storefronts. If you pre-order before the release, you'll also get access to bonus character Darkseid.

Deluxe Edition via Microsoft Store ($149.95)

Comes with

  • Access to 3 new fighters as they become available
  • Exclusive gear shader usable on multiple characters
  • Premier skin with new look and dialogue for a specific character

If you pre-order this bundle, you’ll also get access to Darkseid.

Strangely, this bundle cannot be accessed on the New Zealand PlayStation Store.

Ultimate Edition via PlayStation and Microsoft Stores ($189.95)

With this variant, you’ll get even more fighters as they roll out:

  • Access to 9 new fighters as they become available
  • 2 Exclusive gear shaders usable on the entire roster
  • 3 Premiere skins adding a new look and dialogue for specific characters

Pre-ordering also grants access to Darkseid.

EB Games: Pre-order ($109.99)

If physical discs are still your thing, and you enjoy hitting up retail stores, then EB are offering PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions of the game at a slightly reduced price.

As per usual, pre-ordering here will also get you access to Darkseid.

Mighty Ape: Pre-order ($92.00)

The online retailer is offering the stock-standard version of the game at a reduced price, although you’ll have to pay for shipping.

If adorning your walls with gaming-related imagery is your thing, then Mighty Ape are also offering a poster with this purchase. This is in addition to Darkseid as a pre-order.

Mighty Ape: Deluxe Edition ($129.99)

Alongside the poster, this version carries the same benefits as the digital Deluxe Edition – meaning you’ll get access to three new characters as they release, a cosmetic skin, and an exclusive gear shader pack.

Pre-orders will come with Darkseid.

JB Hi-Fi: Standard Edition ($98.00)

The black-and-yellow store has the stock-standard version of the game. Pre-ordering this will also get you access to Darkseid.

I do find it a little annoying that the digital copies directly from the console marketplaces are the most expensive standard editions. Even EB Games who is usually the most expensive is cheaper than that. I understand that they can't be seen to undercut the retailers as they have to maintain a good relationship with them, but it does feel a bit stink to us customers who wish to have an all digital game collection.

Yeah it's pretty annoying aye bro, I've gone pretty much full digital and just find myself waiting for a sale before buying. Backlog is a good thing sometimes

Can I be that old guy who complains about how 'in my day' you just brought the game. Titles like pre-order, deluxe, ultimate- really should say" Holdback content or part finished game for which you pay for the privilege to have a complete edition."

Cool coverage all the same NZG, very useful. I won't be buying the game because of the DLC practice.

Just curious about the reasoning behind an all digital collection... Does it ever concern you that the games you "bought" may no longer be available for download/redownload if licensing issues arise I.e Alan Wake? That's one thing keeping me from going all digital really...

For me it's mostly because I'm lazy, if everything is digital I don't have to get off the couch to change games over. Also, have a young child in the house means that physical discs are under a very real threat of being scratched. I'd be more likely to miss out on playing a game due to a scratched disc than I would be due to licensing issues

My two cents as NZ is overpriced.

- NZ Gameshop is the cheapest place to buy physical games. I've purchased more that 15x from them including hardware and it's saved me tons! You also earn points every send for further discounts and free delivery over $60. Its a UK owned company, standard deliver about 7 days and they have a sale about once a month!

- Kinguin for all your digital stuff on PC although Injustice 2 is yet to be announced, sigh.

$190 for the game plus 9 characters?

I think I'll wait for the inevitable collection bundle. Especially as I wouldn't be shocked if that's not all the DLC.

This game looks great but I am with the rest, the digital copies are very expensive compared to hard copies that store discounts.

1) Base.com is better than NZGameShop in 99% of all aspects. Please start shopping here, as the website responsiveness is infinitely better and easy to look at. Super minimal advertising fluff.

2) GeekHouse.co.nz is hosting an Injustice 2 launch party/tournament at Albany on Friday 6pm! Google them and check Facebook for details -- address is Unit L 86 Bush Road, 0632 Albany.
I'm tagging along with some of our Fighting Game Community boys, a couple of them the best in the country. Please go check it out if you're in the area. I don't even play any NetherRealm games so I suck hard.

Get your points but Base.com 99% better is a bit off. Works out the same price, do they have a points system as I get a lot of value from that.

Seriously it's true! My bad sorry you weren't supposed to take that 99% serious in any way heh. I hope nobody actually trusts my online statistics haha.

Check out everything want you want and convert the checkout price with Right Click -> Search Google (that's the price we pay). Base wins on games but loses on anything hardware because of no free shipping -- it's not geared towards NZ customers as a pitch.

Base is always cheaper (by any varying margins) so it offsets the Points system by default. Taking into account NZGameShop's 5% points you get back + the free shipping, Base works out to be less since you always start off paying less. You don't have to worry about points, and all the complications that comes with that e.g.) time waiting for distribution, validation. refunds. Base cancellations and refunds are super quick, and you don't pay until it ships.

I think NZGameShop try hard to secure some pre-order bonuses and special bundles. Base doesn't do that often so it's just usually for vanilla games, cheap, no hassle.

Fair enough, I'm happy with NZGS but they aren't perfect. The customer service staff a while ago were regularly hopeless but it seems they have more onto it people there now.

In this case Injustice is $65 at NZGS (+ $4.88 points), where Base equates to $67.22 + $3.17 Del + currency conversion fee (my bank charges anyway) $70.39 plus which is close to $10 difference for an ongoing customer like me. I'm sure Base have better deals in other cases though.

Actually at Base it's $59.23NZD for "Injustice 2 - Includes Darkseid DLC (PS4)".
This is what I was meaning. The true price is at the Checkout stage - you need an account. Then from Checkout you Rightclick -> Search google and bam, the NZD we pay is, give-or-take $1.50. Most ever I got overcharged was around $1.50 maybe.

The price changes from what was displayed at the listing once at Checkout. 95% of the time it decreases.

:D

How do I confirm the cost before having my card charged?
