On the heels of Mortal Kombat X, The folks at Nether Realm Studios and Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment have confirmed that Injustice 2 (the sequel to Injustice Gods Among Us) is in development. Injustice 2 will be released sometime in 2017 for PlayStation 4 and XBox One.
This game will be set immediately after the events of Injustice: Gods Among us. Your favourite DC comics characters will be working to rebuild the society that Superman’s regime had destroyed. At the same time there is a job to do because there is a new threat to the existence of planet earth.
Atrocitus and Gorilla Grodd will be the two new villains that will be added to the existing roster.
If anything I really hope that the online multiplayer aspect of the game is really good. By really good, I don’t want to be left waiting 3 minutes just to get into a match I want to be able to get into it straight away. They failed to do this with Mortal Kombat X so they have a lot of work to do to make it right with Injustice 2.
The thing that interests me the most about this is the RPG-esque gear system. Every time you play you get the chance to take advantage of the loot drops which allow you to make upgrades to your characters. To the best of my knowledge this is something that you don’t see in modern day fighting games so it will be interesting to see how the fighting game community reacts to this change.
In any event check out the trailer below.
