Taking a break from the Mortal Kombat franchise, the team created a new intellectual property that proved to be a smash-hit. Three years later, NetherRealm Studios are doing it all again with the unveiling of a sequel titled Injustice 2.
Subtitled “Every Battle Defines You,” Injustice 2 introduces new mechanics that will increase the unpredictability and uniqueness of each and every matchup. One such mechanic will be the introduction of a new Gear system which will utilise RPG-like mechanics to reward players with loot drops that can be then used to customise your favourite fighters. Not only will your heroes and villains differ in appearance to your opponents’ but they will play differently and leave them on the back foot.
Injustice 2 continues the epic cinematic story introduced in Injustice: Gods Among Us as Batman and his allies work towards putting the pieces of society back together while struggling against those who want to restore Superman’s regime. In the midst of the chaos, a new threat appears that will put Earth’s existence at risk. Players can play from the biggest DC roster ever offered in a fighting game, from classic fan favorites such as Batman, Superman, Supergirl and Aquaman, to astonishing new villains like Atrocitus and Gorilla Grodd. Battles will take place across arenas that have evolved in scale and span across iconic locations such as Metropolis, Gotham City and Atlantis.
Injustice 2’s announcement trailer sees The Flash, Batman and Superman do battle in a darkened room with Supergirl later stepping out from the shadows. While the cause of their conflict is currently unknown, expect to experience a novelistic story when the title drops in 2017 for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
