The reign of Superman’s Regime is over, but a villainous presence is still lurking in the shadows of the Injustice universe, as WB Games and NetherRealm Studios released a brand new Story Trailer for Injustice 2:
Injustice 2 is NetherRealm Studios’ super-powered sequel to the hit game Injustice: Gods Among Us that allows players to build and power up the ultimate version of their favorite DC characters. Featuring a massive selection of DC Super Heroes and Super-Villains, 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.
In addition to appearances by Batman, Superman, Supergirl, and Wonder Woman, the trailer also includes a glimpse at new fighters Bane, Poison Ivy, Brainiac, Damian Wayne’s Robin, and Darkseid (who’ll be available as a pre-order bonus). And while we didn’t get a look at any of them in action, NetherRealm has promised to reveal gameplay from a “new character” on their Twitch channel on Tuesday, January 24.
Finally, NetherRealm announced that Injustice 2 will be available in a trio of different editions. The Standard Edition ($59.99) will include the 30 characters available as part of the main game, along with Darkseid, for those who purchase Injustice 2 early. But players looking to expand their game will be able to purchase the Digital Deluxe Edition (Price TBA), which includes access to three post-launch DLC characters, or the Ultimate Edition (Price TBA), which will add nine DLC characters to the game.
Injustice 2 will be released for the PS4 and Xbox One on May 16.
