1.01GB on PlayStation 4, Injustice 2 update 1.07 is now available to download, NetherRealm Studios has announced. One of the biggest additions is Tournament Shaders, which are available in-game for all characters beginning “today, August 1.”

In the Tournament Shader FAQ, it’s revealed that they can be unlocked for 5,000 Source Crystals per character. “A portion of the proceeds will go to support Injustice 2 tournaments and community events,” they add.

Players report that the update also adds Starfire (scheduled for August) and the Bizarro premiere skin, which Ed Boon previously teased:
