It was recently revealed that linking the mobile and console versions of Injustice 2 would lead to rewards for everyone. Console gamers get a massive boon, as their link reward is a premiere skin of Grid for Cyborg. Fans of Geoff Johns’ Justice League run will be pleased, since the character played an interesting role in some stories.
To get the premiere skin, players will need a WBID account, which is fairly easy to register for. Injustice 1 also had WBID link rewards, giving players a New 52 skin for The Flash when linking the game. Players could also unlock Bane’s skin from Knightfall by rating the mobile version, which is a unique way of unlocking things.
On The Grid
Debuting in Forever Evil, Grid possessed Cyborg’s body multiple times to aid the Crime Syndicate during their battles. As far as premiere the game’s skins go, this is definitely one of the better looking ones for Injustice 2. The premiere skin debuted in the Watchtower Stream, with DR3 GAMING highlighting the moment the skin was announced.
Grid joins Reverse-Flash, Power Girl, Green Lantern (John Stewart) and Mr. Freeze as premiere skins for the game. They couldn’t be separate characters, since they would play too similarly to fighters already in the game, so this is smart. We can expect more premiere skins in the future, though some of the game’s gear pays tribute to classic characters.
More WBID Bonuses?
It’s not clear if the Grid skin will be the only link bonus for Injustice 2, so more could come. Arkham Knight gave fans two skins for linking their accounts, though one of them involved registering in the WB Communities. Until WB announces more bonuses, we will have to wait and see if there are others being planned.
Here is hoping that some of the DLC characters have alternate skins, since Blackfire could be a skin for Starfire. That’s only wishful thinking, but it would be a great way to bring the character to the game somehow. DC characters tend to have a ton of doppelgangers, so the possibilities for more premiere skins are endless.
Injustice 2 is slated for a May 16 release on the PS4 and Xbox One, with Darkseid as a pre-order bonus. The first DLC pack will feature Red Hood, Starfire and Sub-Zero, though no price has been given yet. Players that purchase the Deluxe edition can get the first DLC pack, while the Ultimate edition has all three packs.
