"Injustice 2" will also get a new look, this time it's much more detailed with more improved visual effects. As what we reported earlier, the game will utilize Mortal Kombat X's game engine, a software application that can provide an extra visual boost.
As for what the game's story, nothing has been changed or revealed yet. The developer has remained tight-lipped, not even words or hints were given. "Injustice 2" is currently in development for the PC, PS4, and Xbox One consoles and is set for a March 2017 release date.
