All the teases and leaks in the world can’t take away from an impressive Announcement Trailer… and that’s just what NetherRealm has given us for Injustice 2. Set to be released for the PS4 and Xbox One in 2017, Injustice 2 revives a dark corner of the DC Universe… where a deranged Superman plots to return to his role as the supreme leader of Earth:
Injustice 2 continues the epic cinematic story introduced in Injustice: Gods Among Us as Batman and his allies work towards putting the pieces of society back together while struggling against those who want to restore Superman’s regime. In the midst of the chaos, a new threat appears that will put Earth’s existence at risk.
Batman, Superman, Aquaman, and The Flash will return for a second round of fighting, alongside newcomers like Supergirl and villains such as Atrocitus and Gorilla Grodd. But regardless of who you pick, players will be able to customize the characters in Injustice 2 like never before. According to NetherRealm, players can “personalize iconic DC characters with unique and powerful gear earned throughout the game,” as well as “take control of how their characters look, fight, and develop across a variety of game modes.”
We’ll likely learn more about Injustice 2 during next week’s E3 Expo.
