Injustice 2 Micro-Transactions Detailed, Firestorm Gets a Gameplay Trailer

[embedded content] Announced earlier this week for Injustice 2, Firestorm was given an official gameplay trailer by Warner Bros and NetherRealm, where he faces off against Green Arrow, Catwoman, and Green Lantern. Here’s what NetherRealm says about Firestorm: Two minds sharing one super-powered body, Jason Rusch and Martin Stein are only beginning to master their abilities as Firestorm.

While these two don’t agree on much, one thing they never argue about is helping Batman rebuild a safer world.

Firestorm Flames On In Injustice 2

Making giant atoms out of fire? Close enough! As a teen I was fascinated by DC’s Firestorm, a gestalt character with the ability to manipulate the elements. Unfortunately his TV and video game appearances generally use him as a souped-up Human Torch. Here’s our first look at Jason Rusch and Martin Stein shooting fireballs in Injustice 2. Advertisement Yeah, we get a little phasing and a little flying. At one point he takes on the blue coloration of Deathstorm, which is nifty. But for the most part, he’s shooting fire. The Professor Stein and Jax Jackson version of Firestorm in TV’s Arrowverse has briefly flirted with transmuting elements, but that’s probably not as exciting and easy to render as great gouts of flame. As for his video game appearance, Firestorm runs into the same problem as a Green Lantern. The comic book characters might be able to do everything all the time, but that’s got to be reined in to fit these characters into the format. Man, Legends of Tomorrow Firestorm really needs a cool helmet. Advertisement Injustice 2 arrives READ FULL STORY AT KOTAKU!

Injustice 2 Dev Explains How It Plans to Counter Potential Imbalances Due to Gear System

Injustice 2‘s gear system has been a pretty hot topic since its announcement, especially due to concerns that it’ll cause an imbalance in the game – an issue that NetherRealm Studios actually accepts might occur. However, at a recent preview event, the developer has explained that it has a number of solutions up its sleeve to ensure that the game offers a level playing field for all, noting that the gear cannot be bought with real money so everyone will have to grind for it. What are these solutions, exactly? Speaking to GameSpot, designer John Edwards revealed that players can disable stat boosts both online and offline. “Even for the competitive modes where we allow stats to be active, both players have the option to disable that stuff,” he explained. And what if one of the players don’t disable the stat boosts? “What we do is, we automatically boost up the lower-level character’s base stats to the same level as the higher-level character.” However, lower level players won’t automatically get gear boosts. Edwards further explains: But the gear does not get boosted, so the player who has invested a lot of time in building up the gear for their level READ FULL…

You’re going to constantly earn coins in-game through grinding, playing whatever it is to be able to purchase those chests. You do not purchase chests with real money, or gear with real money.” You can learn more about unlocking gear beginning at 7:30 of this video: [embedded…

Dr. Fate Is Our Best Hope Against Superman In Injustice 2

Weaker heroes in the Injustice 2 universe take a pill to make them capable of standing up to the likes of Superman, but there is no pill to make Superman less vulnerable to the magical mastery of the newly-revealed Dr. Fate. Advertisement Doctor Fate’s signature ankh appeared on some of the earliest marketing images for Injustice 2, so his inclusion in the game comes as no surprise. Now we’re finally getting a chance to see him in action, and it’s some damn fine action. In case you can’t watch the trailer, all you really need are these two GIFs: Ankh if you love justice. Wow. In Zatanna’s ending from the first Injustice, Doctor Fate shows up to help his fellow magician create the Tower of Fate, serving as a base of operations for the anti-Superman resistance. For all of Kal-El’s immense power, he can’t do much against magic, so expect Fate to do great things in Injustice 2 this May.
