'Injustice 2' Dev NetherRealm Explains Microtransaction System

'Injustice 2' Dev NetherRealm Explains Microtransaction System

If that's not clear, the developer reiterated that the premium character skins won't have any advantages in terms of gameplay-they're basically just there to give your character a different shade and look.

NetherRealm has finally opened up on the microtransactions in Injustice 2 in the form of Source Crystals. They stress there is no "pay-to-win" feature in the game.

Source Crystals can also be used to Transform Gear, which allows players to perfectly match the overall look of a character's costume based on a single piece of gear.

"We value our community and want to be clear: you can not "pay to win" with Injustice 2", NetherRealm said.

Like many other games, NetherRealm's fighting game Injustice 2 will have a microtransaction system.

More news: Howie Roseman delivers Christmas in March to Carson Wentz, Eagles fans

He's been a regular figurehead in the DC television show Legends Of Tomorrow and now the latest playable character to be revealed for the upcoming Injustice 2 is Firestorm!

The line between hero and villain has become blurred as the most epic battle in the DC universe rages on in Injustice 2. You can, however, change the look of Gear pieces in order to better suit your style preferences. If you have ranked one character up to level 20, you can use the Source Crystals to level other characters up to the same level.

While Source Crystals aren't created to impact progression in the game, they do allow for a bit of a shortcut. The devs are very clear that this system "won't affect gameplay or progression". "After using Transform Gear, your Gear piece will have your preferred stats matched with your preferred visuals".

Injustice 2 is out on May 16th for Xbox One and PS4.
