Battles will take place across a number of iconic locations, such as Metropolis, Gotham City, and Atlantis.

“In Injustice 2, we are introducing new features that will change the way fans play fighting games,” said Ed Boon, Creative Director at NetherRealm Studios.  “We’re always interested in pushing the genre forward and allowing players to customize and level-up their favorite DC Super Heroes and Super-Villains is a significant leap.”

        I guess that's why they haven't announced it for PC yet.

          PC didn't even come out for the first one till it was the "ultimate" edition. I'd say that’s going to be the same pattern again.

            MKX was PC day one so I guess that experiment failed.

              Right, even worse, the "ultimate" package for MKX didn't come to PC.

        Yeah, I've written off NRS games because of how bad the PC ports have been, especially with MKX.

          I had no issues with the PC port of Injustice.

          I never had any issues with MKX or Injustice on the PC and play them all the time. I never played online though and always just played SP maybe that is why.

          Was the net code that bad? , for I put shit load of hours into SP and it was flawless and both where awesome ports.

          Unless the online play was garbage I don't get the hate for the PC ports of either game?

            Sorry didn't see this until now, but yeah online was hot garbage for both. Also, NRS dropped support for MKX after only a few months. They didn't get the additional season of DLC characters, balance patches and updates. Just basically said fuck you to PC users.
