Injustice 2 is already one of the most eagerly-awaited games of 2017.

Its trailer shows off well-known characters like Superman, Batman, Aquaman and Supergirl in action, and also reveals some of the main characters’ abilities. A legendary fight between Batman and Superman is also available, and these images alone are enough to convince most gamers to plunk down $59.99 for the experience.

Injustice 2’s tagline is “Every battle defines you”. This is the perfect choice for a game where players can personalize characters with unique and powerful gear earned throughout the game. For the first time, gamers can control how their characters look and fight.

The game’s developer, NetherRealm Studios, decided to raise the stakes even higher and announced the company would heavily focus on developing new downloadable content for Injustice 2.

One of the things we’ve been doing, trying to do more and more with every game… is to support it for a longer period of time. With DLC characters, we’ve had four with Mortal Kombat, six with Injustice, eight with Mortal Kombat X, and with Injustice 2 we plan on continuing that pattern, it will certainly be more aggressive than we’ve been in the past.

Since players can now customize their characters, the developer is considering a pay-to-unlock model for those gamers who don’t have enough time or patience to earn the rewards by playing the game.

NetherRealm Studios is very straightforward when it comes to its purpose for this game. Its creative director, Ed Boon, didn’t beat around the bush when he said is trying to “cast the biggest net possible to get as many players into it as possible.” While this may not be the most marketing-oriented speech, we at least we appreciate his honesty.
