Injustice: Gods Among Us stage importance

 

According to NetherRealm Studios co-founder, Ed Boon, the stage you choose to fight in will be just as important as the character you select in Injustice: Gods Among Us. While stages in fighting games tend to be backgrounds that players cannot interact with, Boon stated that every arena will have its own unique elements and different characters will have their own ways of interacting with them. Stages will also take damage over time, which will open up other possibilities for beating up the opponent, like launching them into electrical wiring or other such hazards. Some arenas will have one level, while others will have up to three, that you can be knocked into while fighting. Boon said;

                  Our goal was to do something with the gameplay that is a dramatic departure from the existing stuff.”

Injustice: Gods Among Us is set for release in April 2013 for the XBOX360, PlayStation 3, and the WiiU.
