Pretty much everyone played Injustice: Gods Among Us when it came out. The game was developed by NetherRealm, the studio behind the Mortal Kombat games, and it allowed you to control popular DC Comics’ Superheroes and Villains, pitting them against each other in battle. The sequel to this popular game is on the way, and now we’ve received our first trailer for it.
Here’s the official announcement synopsis for the game:
“Injustice 2 offers the latest DC fighting game experience that expands on the previous title’s larger-than-life showdowns. Every battle defines you in a game where players personalize iconic DC characters with unique and powerful gear earned throughout the game. For the first time gamers can take control of how their characters look, fight and develop across a variety of game modes.
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. Players can play from the biggest DC roster ever offered in a fighting game, from classic fan favorites such as Batman, Superman, Supergirl and Aquaman, to astonishing new villains like Atrocitus and Gorilla Grodd. Battles will take place across arenas that have evolved in scale and span across iconic locations such as Metropolis, Gotham City and Atlantis.”
So it’s pretty clear we’re going to get some new characters and new locations, but will the gameplay improve as well? We’ll just have to see. You can see the trailer above, and the announcement artwork below:
Injustice 2 should be available for release sometime in 2017 and will be available to play on PS4 and Xbox One.
