Story

Injustice 2 continues the story set in motion in Injustice: Gods Among Us, beginning in a fractured universe where bonds are broken and every alliance is thrown into war. Batman and his allies work towards putting the pieces of society back together, but struggle against those who would restore Superman’s Regime. In the midst of this chaos, a new threat appears that will put Earth’s very existence at risk. Players will decide where their loyalties lie and have the ability to personalise iconic DC characters with unique and powerful gear earned throughout the game.

The Shattered Alliances Series

Shattered Alliances is a series of trailers focusing on the stories of the game’s main characters.

Gameplay

Injustice 2 introduces RPG elements to the gameplay, unlocking many possibilities to customize the character roster in addition to a game system that tries to balance these new elements to offer a game experience friendly enough to new players without sacrificing the challenge for experienced players.

Character Trailers:

The Gear System

Each character begins with four base stats: strength, defense, health, ability. And five default gear pieces that don’t provide any enhancements.

There are two ways to enhance a character’s base stats and gear: leveling up, loot drops and loot boxes. As you play the game you’ll earn new items with unique attributes to increase your character stats, customize their appearance and moves. Additional upgrades can be unlocked by completing a gear set with all the matching items. This Gear System allows players to create highly customized versions of each character.

To balance the game, the stats boosts can be enabled or disabled by players. And the game’s system automatically adjusts the base stats of the characters to make them even in battle. However, this doesn’t affect the gear. So players with better gear will not lose this advantage as long as the stats boosts are enabled.

Injustice 2 Mobile

The mobile version of Injustice 2 takes the main elements of its console counterpart.
