Enchantress-Injustice-2

Yesterday, the January update to Injustice 2 went live, in preparation for the arrival of Enchantress — the second character in Fighter Pack 3 — next month. In addition to adding the sorceress’s data to the game, the patch also brought with it a new set of Legendary Multiverse Portals for Black Canary, Harley Quinn, and Aquaman. There were also a variety of character-specific bug fixes — most notably for latest roster addition Atom — as well as fixing an issue where Black Manta’s Multiverse Sidekick attack could crash the game and several adjustments to Hellboy’s Devil’s Revolver and Heavy Hoof (J2), that caused some unintended interactions. The final notable change involves Clashing while certain objects are on screen, such as Darkseid’s active Parademons, Joker’s Chattering Teeth, and Legendary Gear Augment Surprise Chompers, Red Hood’s Ground Mines, or Wonder Woman’s Shield Toss. These projectiles will now disappear with a visual effect upon Clash initiation, making it easier for players to know they’re gone once they’ve been reset to full-screen distance. You can see the full patch notes below.
