Here Come the Girls… NetherRealm adds Catwoman, Poison Ivy, Cheetah to Injustice 2

One day after digging up Swamp Thing, NetherRealm Studios is back with another batch of character announcements for Injustice 2. But rather than limit themselves to just a single new character, the developer unveiled three fighters of the female persuasion in a brand new gameplay trailer titled “Here Come the Girls.”

“Here Come the Girls” puts the focus on Cheetah (a rival to Wonder Woman) and Catwoman (a master thief and foil to Batman), who will be joining the fight in Injustice 2. In addition to this pair of revealing announcements, the trailer also offers a first look at the previously-confirmed Poison Ivy (another Batman foe) in action.

Injustice 2 will be released for the PS4 and Xbox One on May 16.

Swamp Thing emerges from the muck as the latest playable character in Injustice 2

Swamp Thing is one of the stranger characters in DC’s stable of superheroes, but he’s had a surprisingly varied second life in movies, television, and video games. It looks like that legacy will continue this May, as NetherRealm Studios has announced the muck monster will appear as a playable character in Injustice 2.

Swamp Thing is a lumbering brawler, and the gameplay trailer embedded above gives us a glimpse at his superhuman strength. However, the creature also has the ability to teleport in and out of battle, stretch out his arms to grab opponents, and clone himself for double damage. Swamp Thing is the second nature-based character to be announced for Injustice 2, and it’ll be interesting to compare him to Poison Ivy once she’s unveiled.

Injustice 2 will be available for the PS4 and Xbox One on May 16.

NetherRealm Studios adds Black Canary (and her Canary Cry) to Injustice 2

After listening to the cries of their fans, NetherRealm Studios has added Black Canary to Injustice 2 as a playable character.

The latest gameplay trailer for Injustice 2 gives us a pretty good look at Black Canary, and the comics character seems to have a very similar moveset to Mortal Kombat‘s Sonya Blade. In addition to a variety of flips and kicks (a few of which seem to really work the groin), Black Canary also deploys her famed Canary Cry to pummel her opponents with sound waves.

Injustice 2 will be released for the PS4 and Xbox One on May 16.

It’s Batman versus Robin in the latest Injustice 2 trailer

It’s hard to have a normal childhood when your mother is an immortal assassin and your father is The Dark Knight. So while Damian Wayne has caught some bad breaks, he’s also Robin, and he’s all set to join NetherRealm’s Injustice 2 as a brand new playable character.

Using the ninja skills he learned from his father and the sword his mother gave him, Damian is a formidable opponent in the latest trailer for Injustice 2. Batman even tries to impart his “No Killing” code on his son, but unfortunately, things don’t turn out well for the Caped Crusader.

NetherRealm is currently testing Injustice 2 with a Closed Beta, so keep an eye on your inbox for an invite. For the rest of us, the fighting game will be released for the PS4 and Xbox One on May 16.

You can sign up for an Injustice 2 Beta right now

WB Games and NetherRealm Studios have announced plans to hold a Beta to test the online capabilities of the upcoming Injustice 2.

We don’t yet know when the Beta will go live, but you can register now to possibly receive an invite at the game’s official website. Both PS4 and Xbox One owners have been asked to participate, so it doesn’t look like the Beta will be exclusively tied to a single platform or a pre-order bundle.

Injustice 2 will be released on May 16. And in case you missed it, you can learn what happened in the aftermath of Superman’s imprisonment by watching the recently-released Story Trailer.

Injustice 2 Story Trailer introduces Brainiac, Darkseid, Robin, Poison Ivy, and Bane

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.

Ed Boon reveals May 16, 2017 release date for Injustice 2

It’s been a while since we’ve heard anything about Injustice 2, but Ed Boon hopped on Twitter this afternoon to reveal a release date for the DC Comics fighting game. Like Batman, fans should begin preparing now, because Injustice 2 will be available for the PS4 and Xbox One on May 16:

The Injustice series takes place in an alternate version of the DC Universe where Superman has taken over the world after The Joker kills Lois Lane, though he’s opposed by a small resistance lead by Batman and… believe it or not… Harley Quinn.

The sequel will add a Gear System that lets players customize their favorite superhero or supervillain with unique armor pieces, and include appearances by Batman, Superman, Aquaman, Supergirl, Atrocitus, Gorilla Grodd, Wonder Woman, Blue Beetle, Harley Quinn and Deadshot. Presumably, we’ll learn more about the rest of the game’s roster in the coming weeks.

See Supergirl deliver a beatdown in this new Injustice 2 gameplay trailer

NetherRealm Studios paid a visit to IGN’s offices a few days before Christmas to show off a new gameplay trailer for Injustice 2 featuring Supergirl.

Like her more famous cousin, Supergirl can use her “Freeze Breath” to stop an opponent in their tracks, but she also put her own spin on her Kryptonian superpowers. To that end, “Krptonian Force” creates a whirlwind of energy that can trap her opponent in place or propel the character forward with lightning speed. Finally, her “Teleport Punch” and “Heat Vision” special moves are quick attacks that also pack a punch.

Injustice 2 is currently in development for the PS4 and Xbox One. It’ll be released sometime in 2017.
