Firestorm Confirmed For Injustice 2

With the release of Injustice 2 about two months away, expect more information on characters and Source Crystals to arrive soon. The "Source Crystals" system will be the secondary currency players can purchase with real money.

It was noted that none of these options are pay to win, though it is possible to use Source Crystals to level up other characters to level 20 if you have one character at that rank. These are used to buy cosmetic, non-gaming-changing features.

"We value our community and want to be clear: you can not "pay to win" with Injustice 2", NetherRealm states in a blog post.

Burkhead is more of a passing-down back, so the signing shouldn't impact any negotiations with free agent LeGarrette Blount. In the finale, he carried 27 times for 119 yards and two touchdowns, while adding two receptions for 25 yards.

There's still 14 unannounced characters in the Injustice 2 roster, and the next character reveal is scheduled for Thursday, March 23.

Source Crystals can be purchased via the PlayStation and Xbox Stores from launch day. The video also showcased actual gameplay footage of the character who didn't come much of a surprise for gaming analysts and enthusiasts, as NetherRealm boss Ed Boon already teased the superhero last December. You can, however, change the look of Gear pieces in order to better suit your style preferences. "For example, if you have a piece of Gear with your ideal stat loadout but it doesn't have your flawless look, you can apply the visuals from one of your other pieces of Gear to it", the developer said. Again, this doesn't have anything to do with power-ups; it just lets you transform the look of your gear to match your fighter's overall outfit.

The prices for Source Crystals will be revealed in the future. "This is optional", NetherRealm says, "and won't affect gameplay or game progression".

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.
