The first Injustice game told the story of a Superman gone mad with grief after the death of Lois Lane at his hands. Having been tricked by the Joker, who also destroys Metropolis, Superman is understandably angry. The once proud hero establishes a new world order and maintains peace with an iron fist.Things weren’t going so well in DC’s comic universe and it took Batman to set it right. Calling on the Justice League across all universes, Batman seeks to end Superman’s reign of terror.
A fighting game similar in style to Mortal Kombat, it is made by NetherRealm Studios after all, Injustice pitted DC’s strongest heroes and villains against each other in 1 V 1 combat. Injustice 2 is picking up in the aftermath of the first game and will feature the same basic mechanics, but with a slew of new characters. Brainiac, Supergirl, Poison Ivy, and more all make brief appearances in the newly released story trailer. You can watch the video, narrated by Brainiac himself, below.
The lines have indeed been blurred in Injustice 2. While Batman and crew try to rebuild, the heroes who took Superman’s side are struggling to maintain the world they built. As if that wasn’t bad enough, now Brainiac is taking advantage of the chaos, looking to redraw said lines.
The DC based slug-fest, Injustice 2, hits PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on May 16th. Will you geeks be joining the fight? Which characters are you looking forward to the most? Let us know your DC dream battle in the comments below.
