Injustice 2 Update 1.09 Out Now On PS4 And Xbox One, Prepares The Game For Raiden

Throw Superman around a bit more often than before.


Injustice 2 has received its latest update, introducing a variety of bug fixes and balance changes. But this patch, dubbed the October Update despite its September release date, is most notable for getting the game ready for the next DLC character, Raiden.

This patch, update 1.09, is filled with bug fixes, but there are some design changes, too. Legendary items have seen their base stats increased, and more characters now have Legendary Multiverse Portals: Black Adam, Brainiac, Catwoman, Deadshot, Flash, Scarecrow, and Supergirl. Legendary Multiverse Events also see a dramatic decrease to the number of minutes you're required to play; they drop from 3,000 and 7,000 to 1,000 and 3,000.

In terms of balance changes, two of Superman's moves lose their throw immunity during their recovery frames; these include his "Away + Light" and "Towards + Medium, Down + Light." Similarly, his Super Breath is no longer throw immune when meter burned.

Update 1.09 also technically adds Raiden and the Black Lightning premiere skin to the game, though they aren't scheduled for release until October. A specific release date has not been announced. You can see the full patch notes below.
