Injustice 2 will introduce a loot-dropping system, known as the “Gear System”, providing character-specific costume pieces and equipment, thus allowing players to customise their characters’ appearances and upgrade their abilities.
Earlier this week, the official Xbox Live Rewards website had a listing noting that Injustice 2 would arrive in March, which Boon rejected.
Playable characters will include the returning Superman, Batman, Aquaman, Flash, and Wonder Woman, with the addition of Atrocitus, Gorilla Grodd, Supergirl, Blue Beetle and Deadshot.
