First glimpse at Injustice 2's Gear drops; full supers for Gorilla Grodd, Atrocitus and Aquaman shown

More Injustice 2 gameplay was just showcased for a bit at E3, and Ed Boon revealed some details on how the game's gear system is going to work.

According to Boon, every character will have thousands of potential upgrades through gear like boots, capes, and insignias. After each match you play items will drop for not only the character you're playing, but other characters as well.

Below you'll see the post match report where Gorilla Grodd gains a few pieces of Gear after winning:

Injustice 2 models spotted in mobile game

It appears some of the character models for Injustice 2 have been spotted in the original mobile Injustice app.

The mobile game has been updated to include special Superman and Aquaman Injustice 2 packs. Given that they're on mobile, they're a little lower in quality than what we've seen for the upcoming Injustice 2 thus far.

In any case, you'll see the character models below:

Supergirl stealing a page out of Scorpion's book? IGN breaks down the Injustice 2 gameplay trailer to point out details you may have missed

If you haven't had a chance to check out Injustice 2's gameplay trailer, take a minute and half to do so, and come back.

Destin and Vince of IGN are now showing the trailer in their Rewind Theater, breaking it down and pointing out a handful of details that were easily overlooked amidst the hype of the reveal.

After taking a closer look, the attendees of Rewind Theater are fairly convinced Captain Cold will be in the game, and that Black Manta will not likely be a playable member of the roster.

They also deduce that Injustice 2's story will likely take place after the death of Lois Lane, the tragic event that served as a catalyst for much of the first game's story.

Injustice 2 gameplay trailer sees Atrocitus, Gorilla Grodd, and more in action; Black Manta shown

It's been on our radar for some time now, but Injustice 2 was officially announced just three days ago on Thursday.

The DC character-based fighting game will feature a large roster of heroes and villains from the franchise, and players will have the freedom to customize each fighter using the game's Gear System.

We just saw the gameplay reveal trailer at the ESL Mortal Kombat X Finals, and it's only adding to the ever growing hype surrounding this game. In the trailer we caught glimpses of Black Manta, Gorilla Grodd, Atrocitus, Superman, Batman and Supergirl. Here are a few images:

Gruesome creatures, a somber king, and even a Penguin: Here are the top five characters we want in Injustice 2

Injustice 2 was officially unveiled to the masses earlier this week, and NetherRealm Studios' -- the company behind the Mortal Kombat series -- has once again taken a hold of the DC Comics reins in order to produce a sequel to their 2013 comic book brawler, Injustice: Gods Among Us.

As seen in the announcement trailer, characters such as Superman, Batman, The Flash, Aquaman, and even Supergirl are locked and loaded, ready to do battle. But as it stands right now, we only know a handful of characters set to make up the game's playable roster.

So, we here at EventHubs have decided to share the top 5 characters that we want to see in Injustice 2.

Captain Cold's gun, Harley Quinn's hammer, Doctor Fate's mask and more - check out these Injustice 2 teasers

Netherrealm Studios has a bit of a history when it comes to leaving fans little hints about upcoming content. For Injustice 2, the teasers appear to already be upon us.

Injustice 2's announcement trailer made it easy to get hyped about armor, returning heroes, and Supergirl, but a closer look at the trailer reveals a possible hint at something more.

For a brief moment just before any of the superheroes are featured, we get a glimpse of what appears to be Captain Cold's gun. Ed Boon ran a Twitter poll the same day as the trailer dropped, and curiously enough, Captain Cold's name appears on the list.

Injustice 2's Gear System has fans worried about game balance; will it end up like Street Fighter X Tekken's gems? Let's discuss

With the official reveal of Injustice 2, we learned that the game will feature an "RPG-like" Gear System. Essentially, players will be able to score loot for playing matches, and equip their fighters with items to make them stronger.

It was noted that this customization will change the strategy and approach used in battle, leaving fans concerned about the game's balance. Many were quick to compare Injustice 2's Gear System to the gems found in Street Fighter X Tekken -- a system that wasn't very well received by the fans.

So, a handful of us here at EventHubs decided to share our thoughts on the matter, addressing some of the concerns we've seen brought up so far.

You can find what we had to say below, and as always, please feel free to take part in the discussion in our comment section!

First-ever Injustice 2 gameplay to debut during ESL Mortal Kombat X finals this weekend

The ESL Mortal Kombat X season 3 finals are scheduled to take place this Saturday in Burbank, California. Those looking to watch some of the best MKX players duke it out for $200,000 in cash prizes have more than enough reason to tune in already.

However, Creative Director at NetherRealm Studios, Ed Boon, has added even more incentive to watch the stream. According to a recent tweet, viewers can expect to see the debut of Injustice 2's gameplay at 5 p.m. PDT during the finals.

Early yesterday morning, NetherRealm Studios released the Injustice 2 announcement trailer, confirming the game's existence after a string of rumors leading up to the reveal hit the internet.

The sequel to 2013's Injustice: Gods Among Us will feature new stages, an "RPG-like" Gear System, and characters such as Batman, Superman, Supergirl, Aquaman, Atrocitus and Gorilla Grodd. Injustice 2 is slated for a 2017 release.

Ed Boon asks the community to vote on potential Injustice 2 character: Swamp Thing, Captain Cold or Blue Beetle?

The cats out of the bag as far as Injustice 2, as we learned that the game is officially in development earlier today.

Given the game's 2017 release, we'd be willing to bet the roster isn't quite filled out at this point. DC Comics has more than a few heros and villains to choose from, and it'll certainly be interesting to find who NetherRealm Studios ends up going with this time around.

NRS' Creative Director, Ed Boon, took to Twitter today to poll fans on who they'd like to see on the roster between three of DC's more obscure characters. Hit the jump to see his poll and toss in your own two cents.

Injustice 2 will have 'RPG-like' Gear System encouraging character customization, each match rewards players with loot drop

The next blockbuster title from NetherRealm Studios, Injustice 2, was revealed in an official capacity earlier this morning. The announcement trailer showcased heroes donning various armored suits, and we now know that this wasn't a simple cosmetic addition to spice up the trailer.

NetherRealm Studios' Community Manager, Tyler Lansdown, shared more details about the upcoming Injustice: Gods Among Us sequel with PlayStation Blog. He notes that in addition to new characters and environments, we'll also be seeing a new "Gear System" that allows players to customize their fighters how they see fit.

This new facet will incorporate RPG-like mechanics, rewarding players with loot drops after each match. Customization not only changes the look of the fighter, but will power up your hero or villain and change the strategy and approach used in battle.

“In Injustice 2, we are introducing new features that will change the way fans play fighting games,” Ed Boon, Creative Director at NetherRealm Studios, explained. “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.”

After yesterday's surprise reveal at Injustice 2 being an actual project, the InjusticeGame YouTube channel has graced us with something very special indeed - an announcement trailer.

You can find some screengrabs from the trailers revealing four veteran characters from the last game, as well as one brand new entrant (who happens to me in my personal top 3 of DC characters, by the way) right here.

Earlier: We've been talking about a potential sequel to NetherRealm Studios' Injustice: Gods Among Us quite a bit this week. There have been several rumors and potential hints at a second part in the fighting game series.

This morning, an image of what appears to be an official Injustice 2 poster began circulating on social media.

From what we can see, this looks to be the real thing. If it is a fake, however, it's a rather convincing one, and we've seen people go to great lengths to fake screenshots and promotional artwork for content that never came to be.

Several days before E3 2014, a poster for the at the time unannounced Mortal Kombat X also leaked, leading us to believe that this might be history repeating itself, but we can't say for certain.

As soon as we have confirmation that this poster is 100% real, we will be updating this story. Stay tuned.

Ed Boon's Twitter drops even more hints at Injustice sequel

While we still haven't received an official announcement yet, a sequel to 2013's Injustice: Gods Among Us is looking more and more imminent by the day.

We've already seen an unoffical claim that says the title will be announced at E3 this year, and is expected to be released by May of 2017. Intrigue was further piqued when we caught wind of Samsung's upcoming Injustice-themed phone.

On top of all this, NetherRealm Studios' Ed Boon has been continuously teasing fans, as he's very apt to do, with his recent Twitter activity. The director of the first Injustice has changed his profile picture to the "II" you saw in this story's banner, and has paired it with some curious comments.

Boon also recently posted a few DC related images and topics, all the more promoting the idea that NRS has DC on the brain.

Samsung to release Injustice: Gods Among Us themed S7 phone; Is this another hint at a sequel?

Samsung is releasing a special, Injustice: Gods Among Us themed Galaxy S7 Edge soon.

The sleek new mobile phone features a golden Batman symbol on the back, an on-screen dial pad that seems to resemble the caped crusader's armor design, and more. It also seems to come equipped with the Injustice: Gods Among Us mobile game pre-installed.

What's interesting about this themed product is the fact that it's promoting an app that was a little over three years ago. Generally speaking, products such as these tend to coincide with upcoming releases.

As of late, rumors about an Injustice 2 have been circulating. From what we've heard, the game will be announced during or close to E3 this year and will see an official release in May 2017.

These are just rumors, of course, but it is certainly peculiar that Samsung is releasing an Injustice-themed phone so close to E3. According to the official Samsung website, the new S7 will be available on June 13th, 2016.

Below are a handful of photos of the new Injustice S7, and you can see an unboxing of it after the jump.
