Injustice 2 offers you the chance to make your main even shinier and plump up those prize pools while you’re at it.

Available in Injustice 2 right now, the new tournament shader shown in the video below bring a touch of class to your outfit with shiny gold highlights. We’re assuming the link here is gold medals and victory, which is what you’ll be chasing if you enter any tournaments. It’s available for every character.

Warner Bros. and NetherRealm haven’t given us many details on the premium DLC, but did say that “a portion of the proceeds” of sales of the tournament shader will be put “towards Injustice 2 tournaments and community events”.

“Purchasing the Tournament Shader is a great way to support the Injustice 2 esports scene,” the companies suggested – something like the way Dota 2 fans help fund the International, probably.

The shaders have been added to Injustice 2 with today’s patch, which runs to 1.05 GB and also adds the Bizarro skin.

The update also makes an absolutely whopping number of changes to Injustice 2’s balance and gameplay, which has been mostly stable since release. It looks like NetherRealm waited to iron out the bugs before it started really messing with things. You can check out the full patch notes on Shoryuken.

Injustice 2 is available for PS4 and Xbox One.
