NetherRealm Introduces Injustice 2's Gear System!
Written By: Kenneth Seward Jr.
Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and NetherRealm Studios released another Injustice 2 trailer. This time they’re outlining the Gear System, which brings a new level of depth to the game…
The Gear System allows for personalization by enabling players to “level up” their favorite DC characters to fit their fighting style. While that’s cool on the surface, I’m wondering if this will hurt the experience. I mean, fighting against a higher leveled player (with better gear) could lead to frustration; you could be playing as the same character, but because of set bonuses and such, they’re hitting hard/living longer than you.
I’m sure NetherRealm has thought things through. The state boosts might not be a significate as the trailer makes it seems, there could be a mode that makes all gear cosmetic only (something that’s needed for tournament play) – we won’t know until we get our hands on the game. Hopefully, it won’t be a lopsided affair. Where players with a ton of time on their hands are intrinsically better equipped than those who don’t!
Injustice 2 is scheduled to be released on the Xbox One and PS4 on May 16th.
