Injustice 2 Will Have Friendly & Fair Microtransactions

The announcement from WB Games assured players that Injustice 2 will not be pay-to-win, as these gear choices (which include transmogrification, shaders, and legendary skins with no stat bonuses) will not have any effect on how your character plays.

Community Admin GypsyWB adds, "Source Crystals can be purchased using real money but aren't required to progress or advance in the game and can't be used to purchase Gear or an advantage in gameplay". Thankfully, NetherRealm Studios intends on revealing yet another hero or villain soon enough, with many still wondering if the fighting game will eventually receive at least one Watchmen character.

The announcement stresses that the Source Crystals can not be used in order to gain advantage in the game.

"We value our community and want to be clear - you can not "pay to win" with Injustice 2", NetherRealm said as part of today's announcement. That's also illustrative of the character's dual personality; the Firestorm in Injustice 2 is composed of the minds of Jason Rusch and Martin Stein, who "are only beginning to master their abilities", according to the developer.

The ministers were due to meet Turkish residents ahead of the April 16 referendum in Turkey on constitutional reform. The foreign ministry has asked the Dutch ambassador in Ankara, who is now on leave, not to return "for a while".


There's still 14 unannounced characters in the Injustice 2 roster, and the next character reveal is scheduled for Thursday, March 23.

Injustice 2 continues the story introduced in Injustice: Gods Among Us as Batman and his allies work towards putting the pieces of society back together while struggling against those who want to restore Superman's regime. "For example, if you have a piece of Gear with your ideal stat loadout but it doesn't have your flawless look, you can apply the visuals from one of your other pieces of Gear to it", the developer said. After using Transform Gear, your Gear piece will have your preferred stats matched with your preferred visuals.

Injustice 2 is slated to release on May 16 on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
