NetherRealm Studios has officially announced the latest instalment of the Injustice franchise, Injustice 2 coming in 2017.

The sequel introduces new characters, new levels and next-level environment destruction and interactions. Injustice 2 also introduces a brand new Gear System, allowing players to build their own version of Superman, their Batman etc.

“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.”

Injustice 2 is looking good and we can’t wait to see some gameplay.
