Injustice 2

Injustice 2 is scheduled to release on the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 on this date. Hopefully we’ll get some more details in the coming days following this news! The last character reveal was in August of last year, when a trailer showed off Deadshot and Harley Quinn. While Harley Quinn was in Injustice: Gods Among Us, Deadshot is a new character to the series. Last month we counted down the top 10 characters we would love to see in Injustice 2 when it comes out in May. Are there some that you are hoping for?

Injustice 2 brings some new features to the table including the “Gear System” which is a loot feature that allows players to earn new costumes and equipment for their characters at the end of each match. The trailer reveal for the game showcased this player progression.¬†There will also be game modes available for players who just want to fight without the character progressions.
