Firestorm Turns Up The Heat In The Latest Injustice 2 Trailer; In-Game Currency Detailed

No Caption Provided

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.

Living up to their promise of another playable character reveal, NetherRealm Studios unveiled the latest hero to join the growing roster of "Injustice 2".

In other Injustice 2 news, we also learned that the title will indeed feature in-game currency that players can buy with real-world cash.

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

"This is optional and won't affect gameplay or game progression", NetherRealm stressed.

As in other games, Injustice 2's microtransaction system lets you speed up progress. Source Crystals can only be bought from the PSN and Xbox One stores and cannot be earned through playing.

McDonald's worker jumps out drive-thru window to aid stricken cop
Viloria is being hailed as a hero by his boss, Alex Menendez, who owns the McDonald's franchise where the incident occurred. Another McDonald's employee who is trained in CPR also helped keep the officer alive until first responders took over.

The ability to transmogrify (or make your gear look like another piece of gear) is a great addition, though - you might want to look like the Suicide Squad version of Harley Quinn but have the stats of a fully armored up version, for instance.

Of course, it's anyone's guess as to who the next combatant will be announced for Injustice 2, especially with DC Comics' sprawling selection of characters from which to choose.

If you reach level 20 for a character, you can use Source Crystals to save time and level up another character to Level 20 too.

Injustice 2 also has a "Transform Gear" system that uses Source Crystals.

With all of the constant release hype around new characters and story trailers, details about how various systems work in Injustice 2 have been a little thin on the ground.
