"Injustice 2" is rumored to offer a new twist in the gameplay via loot system. DC characters will start playing with their native powers and abilities but can also acquire others' if they win in battle, especially special armors.

With the proposed roster of characters for "Injustice 2" growing, fans are now hyped up for the anticipated March 2017 release of this game. They can't be blamed for the thrill of elevating even weak characters into legendary combatants when they amass powers through armor loot. It seems that even the game teaser poster that reads: Every battle defines you - agrees to this exciting loot feature.

Meanwhile, Yibada confirmed that "Injustice 2" will continue the timeline left by the prequel. Batman is trying to pick up from the ruins left by Superman's rule while fearing the escape of the Man of Steel from his red sun-infused prison. There is a greater threat that will disrupt Batman's efforts. Several Superman die-hards are also out for the Dark Knight's blood, seeking redemption.

Now to join the war and chaos, Movie News Guide reported that there are already eleven characters to date and expected to balloon before march. Apart from Batman and Superman in perpetual disagreement, Wonder Woman, The Flash and Aquaman join fellow Justice League members. Harley Quinn, Supergirl, Deadshot, Blue Beetle, Atrocitus and Gorilla Grodd will also join the ranks.

In related development, Ed Boon of sister franchise "Mortal Kombat" is soliciting ideas from fans about who they want in "Injustice 2" roster. Characters likes Starfire, Darkseid, Red Hood, Beast Boy and Jonah Hex are receiving high preference. The poll is continuous but Starfire and Red Hood are already reported to have high chances of inclusion.

"Injustice 2" have high possibility of March 2017 outing for Xbox One and PlayStation 4. There are still doubts about PC version because developers are still weighing the problems experienced in "Mortal Kombat" that was released earlier but received lukewarm reception.
