All of the recent rumors have turned out to be true, as Warner Bros. and NetherRealm have officially revealed the trailer for Injustice 2. The game interestingly does not have a subtitle as the first game did, and the story is set directly after the events of the first game.
Here’s what NeatherRealm Creative Director Ed Boone had to say:
“In Injustice 2, we are introducing new features that will change the way fans play fighting games. We’re always interested in pushing the genre forward and allowing players to customize and level-up their favorite DC Super Heroes and Super-Villains is a significant leap.”
As far as the story is concerned, “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.”
Injustice 2 will launch for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in 2017. Check out the first trailer below.
