Injustice 2 will feature a premium currency called Source Crystals, but there will be no “pay to win” aspect, according to developer NetherRealm.
Source Crystals can be purchased with real money, but are only used for “cosmetic adjustments to your fighters, Premiere character Skins with no gameplay advantage, and various Shaders for character costumes.” The crystals can also be used to Transform gear, allowing the look of one piece of gear to be transferred to another.
According to NetherRealm, Premiere character skins will change the look of a character from top to bottom, but all of the characters stats will remain the same. For example, one of Supergirl’s Premiere skins will turn her into Powergirl.
“Source Crystals offer more opportunities to customize your fighters that won’t affect gameplay or game progression,” the developer adds. “The cosmetic adjustments to your characters are for you own personal preference of how you want your fighters to look, and can add details to your characters overall appearance.”
The price of Source Crystals will be shared “at a later date.”
Injustice 2 launches May 16th for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
