‘Injustice: Gods Among Us’ Alternate Costume Unlock Guide & Video

By | 2 years ago 

Now that Injustice: Gods Among Us is available at retail, gamers are veraciously tearing through the latest NetherRealm Studios fighter in search of hidden costumes, easter eggs, and other unlocks. If the title’s Mortal Kombat pedigree is any indication, it may be some time before every single secret is revealed – especially with DLC characters like Lobo on the way.

Nevertheless, players already have plenty of modes to conquer – and, as a result, bonus content to unlock. Given the extensive gameplay offerings in Injustice: Gods Among Us along with an iOS companion app – not to mention numerous retail exclusive pre-orders – figuring out how to acquire all of the alternate costumes and skins would be a major undertaking. Fortunately, the Internet has already done the majority of the leg-work – compiling the various tasks necessary to unlock everything from Flashpoint Wonder Woman, Batman Beyond, to New 52 Green Lantern.

At this time, some of the most sought-after costumes in the list will be unavailable to those who did pre-order from a specific retailer; however, like most exclusives, NetherRealm will eventually open up any pre-order DLC outfits for purchase through digital marketplaces (PSN, XBLA, etc.).

Batman Beyond Costume Injustice Gods Among Us

The pre-release DLC incentives for Mortal Kombat were made available in costume packs a few months after launch and there’s no reason to think that the developer won’t follow the same path with Injustice: Gods Among Us – especially since publisher Warner Bros. Interactive eventually made every piece of Arkham City pre-order content available for post-launch purchase. Frankly, there’s too much money to be made from DLC like the Arkham Asylum skins or the “Red Son Pack” to not make them widely available for purchase.

Here’s the full list of known Injustice: Gods Among Us unlocks – along with how to acquire each one. The list was originally compiled by Segment Next but, since the time of that posting, a few new details have been revealed, so we’ve updated the guide accordingly.

Of course, descriptions don’t exactly do the costumes justice, so check out the video below – showing all of the available skins (including the defaults) in action:

Keep in mind that the list only includes announced alternative costumes and skins – meaning other secrets or DLC packs could add to the list down the line. Most skins are unlocked through the in-game Archive along with others that require certain goals or challenges to be met – such as completing the story mode, wining ranked matches online, and scoring a certain amount of stars in select Star Lab Missions.

As mentioned several of the costumes are currently unavailable – unless the game was pre-ordered from a specific retailer. Still, in addition to those pre-launch exclusives, a few costumes require legwork outside of Injustice: Gods Among Us  – i.e. purchasing the special edition and season pass as well as syncing with the companion iOS game.

Archive and challenge-based costumes and skins will require gamers to spend a solid amount of time with Injustice: Gods Among Us but expect any external DLC (via iOS app, pre-orders, and special editions) to be made available for purchase in the not-too-distant future.
