Yesterday, it was leaked that Injustice 2 from Warner Bros. Interactive and NetherRealm Studios is a reality. A GameStop promo poster proved the game is real. Well today, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment officially announced the game and released the first trailer, which you can check out below. The follow-up to the hit DC Universe-themed fighting game, Injustice: Gods Among Us, is due out in 2017 for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
The trailer features an extended cinematic video. A lot of the legendary DC heroes are trapped in some sort of dark room, and they are fighting with each other. The trailer features footage of Aquaman, Batman, Superman and the Flash all with tweaked and altered design. Batman has a transforming armored suit, and so does Flash for that matter. The trailer pushes the game’s tag line, “Every battle defines you.”
It should be interesting to see how the game turns out. It certainly has a dark and interesting take on the DC Unvierse and its characters. Here’s an official synopsis from Warner Bros. Interactive:
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.
