Injustice 2 ‘Gear System’ Detailed by NetherRealm Studios
This new system will dictate the outcome of your battles. NetherRealm’s official description of the new ‘Gear System’ reads:
With every clash comes change and the opportunity for evolution. The Gear System brings a new level of depth to the game, allowing players to evolve their play style and achieve their goals. Gear opens up vast possibilities for personalization by enabling combatants of all levels to build and power up the ultimate version of their favorite DC characters to fit their fighting style.
Every character in Injustice 2 has four attributes i.e. Strength, Ability, Defense, and Health. Using new & improved gear, players should be able to enhance these attributes for maximum effectiveness in the battle.
Each piece of gear not only has its own unique look but also enhances your base stats. In addition to this, some of the most powerful effects come from set bonuses. Keeping this in mind, the more pieces of a particular set you have, the bigger the bonus you’ll get.
You’ll also gain new abilities after key achievements, as mentioned in the video attached above! The ‘Gear System’ will not only give you an advantage over your opponents stylistically but also strategically.
By taking advantage of the new ‘Gear System’, you’ll be able to tailor the gameplay experience to your preference & playstyle. There are other things such as augments which provide certain bonuses e.g. increased XP gain, etc.
Last but not the least, there are a few skins and other details hidden in the video as well! For instance, you should be able to spot Mr. Freeze skin for Captain Cold at 02:10 mark in the video.
Developed by NetherRealm Studios, Injustice 2 is scheduled to release on May. 16, 2017 for Playstation 4, Xbox One, PC, & smartphone devices.
