NetherRealm Studios has announced that they’re currently hard at work on a sequel to Injustice: Gods Among Us, and that it will be releasing in 2017! Injustice 2 will include new characters and environments, as well as new way to interact with said locations. You can find the game’s teaser trailer below, as well as some information on a very interesting new system being included for the sequel.
Tyler Landsdown, from NetherRealm Studios, shared this information:
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 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.
