Following numerous teases and a big leak, Netherrealm Studios has officially made the Injustice 2 Announcement. The game is a direct sequel to Injustice: Gods among us both in term of continuity and story. The announcement came with an action packed trailer showing Batman, Superman, Supergirl, Flash and Aquaman fighting each other. Watch it below:
The game is currently announced for a 2017 release for PS4 and Xbox One.
Besides new characters like Supergirl, Gorilla Grodd, and Atrocitus, Injustice 2 will also bring a new gameplay mechanic to the table called The Gear System. this new mechanic uses RPG-like features to reward players with loot drops every time you play the game. Each loot drop, gives the player the ability to earn character-specific gear to outfit and power up their roster. This includes changing the look as well as gameplay style.
How will this mechanic translates to the esports arena remains to be seen, but one thing for sure, we do hope this is not another “Gems system” fiasco.
