Injustice 2 is Coming in 2017

NetherRealm Studios have just officially announced that Injustice 2 will be coming to Xbox One and Playstation 4 in 2017.  Check out the trailer below:

Considering the leaked information about Injustice 2’s release, it probably wasn’t the most surprising announcement of recent times, but that doesn’t make it any less exciting!

In a Playstation Blog post, NetherRealm have revealed the “brand new Gear System”, which they claim will allow players to “build their own version” of their favourite superheroes.

Community Manager, Tyler Lansdown went on to explain that 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.”

Wait wait, did he just say ‘loot drop’?

Additionally, Injustice 2 will feature an “epic story of the Injustice Universe”, which will continue from where the first game left off. No specific release date was given, but i’m sure we’ll find out more details at the E3 Sony Press Conference.
