The game takes the same brutal and fun action from the first game and adds not only some new characters into the mix but new mechanics as well. Most notable of these is the new Gear System which sees players being rewarded with gear pieces after each battle. These gear pieces alter specific stats of the character that has equipped them, these range from damage output to health boosts.
The game releases on Xbox One and PlayStation 4 on the 16th of May 2017.
