Injustice 2 November update patch notes released; currently live on the Xbox One

Patch notes will come later for the PlayStation 4 early next week

Injustice 2's patch notes for the November update have now been released. Quite a number of balance changes have been made to the characters.

It is noted that this patch is currently live for Xbox One users. PlayStation 4 players will be able to update the game early next week.

Zoning for a number of the game's roster appears to have received a few nerfs overall. What this mostly means is that zoning tools grant less meter when used.

This could have quite an impact on the meta. Essentially, if zoners want to use meter burn followups for their moves, they'll have to get up close at some point.

There are a variety of buffs for those that have not been performing well, and nerfs for characters that have been performing a little too well.

Hit the jump below to check out the patch notes.
