Injustice 2 patch 1.07 released -- Bizarro premiere skin, new tournament shaders for all characters, and balance adjustments

Posted by Justin 'AdaptiveTrigger' Gordon • July 31, 2017 at 12:38 p.m. PDT

A new patch has been launched for Injustice 2. This patch is noted to be 1.005 GB.

This balance patch is particularly interesting because it is the first with a large quantity of balance fixes. Previous updates were mostly focused on bug fixes.

We previously had a look at Injustice 2's upcoming patch, but this was not the entire list of changes. As a result, there could be a few surprises for balance adjustments.

The Bizarro premiere skin is now available with this update. Finally, there are new tournament shaders for all characters.

Patch notes have been released. These are all the changes that have been made to the game.

You'll be able to find them after the jump.
