Gamereactor recently got the chance to speak with Injustice 2's associate producer Rob McCaffrey about what Netherrealm is doing differently with Injustice 2 in comparison to the original released back in 2013, and McCaffrey revealed that they are working to evolve the series with the new features being added.

There's a "totally different approach", McCaffrey said. "So in Injustice 2 we have the tagline 'Every Battle Defines You' and we really wanted to take that to heart. The big feature that we've added this game to really evolve the franchise is we've added a gear system. Between each fight, whether you win or lose, you will actually be getting drops of gear and the gear will have different effects on your character. Not only will it physically change the way your characters look but you can also make them look exactly how you want", as well as affecting stats as well.

Regarding changes to gameplay, McCaffrey said: "We've added a few new elements to the combat from Injustice. There is a dash roll that you can now perform in combat. Additionally we also have an aerial escape that you can do while being juggled. Both cost different bars of meter but they're different effects you can do to augment how you play your character."

Injustice 2 is due for release in 2017 for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
