In2013’s Injustice: Gods Among Us, we saw the most powerful characters in DC Comics went at one another tooth, nail, and batarang. However, now it looks like the alien android baddy Braniac wants in on the fight, as we see in the new story mode trailer for Injustice 2.
In what appears to be a direct sequel to the events of the first Injustice title by Netherrealm Studios, the heroes who fought against the tyranny of a grief-stricken Superman are attempting to rebuild society & bring back some semblance of peace, while those who fought alongside the Man of Steel are still battling to keep the oppressive totalitarian regime he had built to keep “order”. With Earth in relative chaos, Braniac takes this opportunity to “redraw the lines”…
Returning to the roster so far are of course, Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, & Bane. It appears that we’ll also see a few new faces in this iteration of Netherrealm Studios amazing fighting game franchise. We can catch glimpses of Poison Ivy, and Captain Marvel, as well as a shadowy glimpse of how Braniac will appear in the game. The official website for the game also has a countdown timer until the full roster is revealed.
For those of us who love the comic arc, there’s even a quick scene of one of the most unexpected kills in all of comicdom. Pay attention, and you’ll catch it.
Injustice 2 will arrive on PlayStation 4 and XBox One on May 16th, and there are already a lot of us here at PCU who will be pre-ordering it. What about you, dear readers? Are you excited to see where this chapter of the Injustice saga will take us? Let us know in the comments!
