After spending so much time throwing fists (and other body parts) with Mortal Kombat X, WB Games and Netherrealm Studios are returning for yet another round of DC Comics-fueled action.
The teams have announced Injustice 2, the long-awaited follow-up to the hit fighting game Injustice: Gods Among Us. Batman, Superman, Aquaman and The Flash are set to return for this game, alongside new entrants like Supergirl and yet-to-be-revealed characters.
In addition to new characters and stages, the team will also introduce an innovative new Gear system. "The Gear System uses RPG-like mechanics to reward you with loot drops every time you play the game. With each loot drop, you will earn character-specific gear to outfit and power up your roster – changing not only the look of each character, but your fight strategy and your personal approach to every match. As you gear up your characters, you’re building a roster of DC Super Heroes and Super-Villains that reflects your choices, and your preferences, which can be vastly different than your opponents. A few play sessions in, you can expect your Aquaman to look and play different than anyone else’s Aquaman you may come across," noted Tyler Lansdown, community specialist for Netherrealm Studios, over at PlayStation Blog.
The game will arrive in 2017 for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC. More of Injustice 2 is expected to be revealed next week at WB Games' E3 booth.
