Warner Bros and NetherRealm release the first gameplay footage for its ambitious sequel to the 2013 fighting game, Injustice 2. Currently scheduled for to release on the PlayStation 4 in 2017.
Injustice 2 is the sequel to the 2013 hit Injustice: Gods Among Us, and this is what Sony had to say on the upcoming sequel.
We wanted to come out swinging. We’re doing all of the things you’d expect from a sequel. We’re adding new characters, new environments, and we’re taking environment destruction and interaction to the next level.
But we didn’t want to stop there. At NetherRealm, we always want to make games that are fun, challenging and innovative. We strive to give players a level of control that makes playing our games a truly personal experience. For that reason, we have introduced a brand new Gear System, allowing players to build their own version of Superman, their Batman and ultimately, their Injustice Universe.
The Gear System uses RPG-like mechanics to reward and boost your character allowing them to grow as the game progress. The loot as they are calling it will change not only the look of each character, but their fighting style.
As you gear up your characters, so do you also build up your roster to take on any hero or villain that might try to take you on through the coarse of the game. A few play sessions in, you can expect your Aquaman to look and play different than anyone else’s Aquaman you may come across do to all the level ups and gear you may or may not acquire.
NetherRealm also had this to say:
And of course we’re going to continue to tell the epic story of the Injustice Universe. When last we saw them, Superman was imprisoned in a Red Sun prison cell, while Batman was continuing the good fight against the forces that would see Superman’s tyranny back in power. Where do we go from here? And what new characters will join the fight? Of course you’ll have to play the game to find out. And we can’t wait for you to get your hands on this game. We’re excited to see your vision come to life on screen.
Stay tuned! We’ll continue to drop information as we lead up to our launch in 2017.
