We are a week out from the launch of Injustice 2 and it feels like we've seen and heard all there is for the game already. Outside of the finer details of the story in the game and specific gear we can collect, NetherRealm Studios has given us quite a lot to go on to make up our minds on if we are going to give the game a go here on the 16th. Hells, we only have a few more DLC characters to get shown off for Injustice 2 and we would have the whole package. I'm going to guess that we won't see those until well after launch but there is still a week and a lot planned up to then, so that may be changed up.
None the less, things may fall through the cracks and we all get busy instead of keeping up on all things Injustice 2. This is why we get some great videos like we have here that is an "Everything You Need To Know" video. All so we can get recapped on the new story that is picking up right after Injustice ended, the new gear system, the new factions we can take on, and then of course all of the characters we'll get to play. There has been a lot going on for Injustice 2 and now is the time to get recapped so you are completely ready to go next week. Have a look and be pretty much up to date.
Injustice 2 — Everything You Need To Know
Dive into the story, the new innovative gear system, and the huge variety of gameplay in Injustice 2.
Now that you know what is coming for Injustice 2 in the game directly, the next big question is just on how we will be able to play it competitively. You can't have a huge fighting game like that and not expect it to go on and it looks like NetherRealm Studios and others have us set up with many competitions for the Pros and amateurs that will be enjoying Injustice 2. All for the glory and part of a $600,000 dollar pot. From the looks of it, you may not even need to travel out to be part of this, but that is part of the fun of it all. Here are more details on the tournaments that will be going on for the game just after launch and then a bit further on.
