NetherRealm is working on a new system to push Injustice: Gods Among Us DLC to all users' consoles.

The game will connect to the Internet whenever possible and download information that will enable you to play against those who have purchased extra characters, even if you haven't.

"In Mortal Kombat we had downloadable characters," NetherRealm boss Ed Boon said. "We want to come up with a way to push all that information onto people's machines so if I buy some character that was available for download, you would have it on your machine and I would be able to fight against you online.

"We're coming up with a great automated system to make sure I can use my character against anybody and everything's compatible.

"All of the DLC stuff will be downloadable,"
Boon confirmed. "We're not going to have it on the disc already and you unlock it. We want to make sure we get it onto people's machines."

"Every game we try to look back and see what could have been better," he said. "We're optimising our network code. For the inputs being sent back and forth we have a new, more elaborate system. And then we also have more things where groups of people participate in more of a round robin, and there's a meta-game in there. There's a lot of cool stuff coming for online."
