When NetherRealm’s “Injustice 2” arrives on consoles May 16, gamers will be able to not only customize, but power-up characters like Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman and more with the brand-new Gear System.
As more battles are fought, new opportunities are granted to upgrade gear, which in turn upgrades strength, ability, defense and health. Each loaded upgrade comes with a visual addition to a hero/villain’s costume, with benefits increasing as you level up, providing more specialized gear and opening up “infinite” opportunities to change your look. Some examples of new versions of characters are Red Son Superman, Supreme Lara Lor-Van’s Sunstone cape, Lordly Breastplate, King’s Assault Armor, Lethal Kandorian Legs of Honor and Crest of Unlimited Power.
Beyond the armor, augments, abilities and special moves are granted after key achievements. The video shows Bane, Catwoman, Black Canary, Blue Beetle, Supergirl and more with different color schemes and extra additions to their attire. The Gear System is the equivalent of the “Create a Character” feature in many games, except instead of creating a playable character from scratch, the look and usability of a hero or villain can be edited to your liking.
Developed by NetherRealm for Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, the sequel to the hit 2013 video game “Injustice: Gods Among Us” continues the storyline, with Batman and his allies work toward putting the pieces of society back together while struggling against those who want to restore Superman’s regime. However, in the midst of that chaos, a new threat appears that will put Earth’s existence at risk.
“Injustice 2” features such playable characters as Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Supergirl, Harley Quinn, Gorilla Grodd and Blue Beetle, with arenas in DC Universe locations like Gotham City, Metropolis and Atlantis.
Power up and build the ultimate version of your favorite DC legends in INJUSTICE 2. With a massive selection of DC Super Heroes and Super-Villains, INJUSTICE 2 allows you to equip every iconic character with unique and powerful gear earned throughout the game.
