It’s about time we get to see new DC heroes and villains that will make up the roster of Injustice 2. And the new cinematic trailer does deliver- we get some hints of story and we get to see new characters. It’s a good mix of familiar faces and those that only DC fans might be familiar of. No gameplay footage, but the setup for the story is worth hinting at- considering developers NetherRealm Studios is still one of the best to pull off a story mode in a fighting game.
Check out the trailer below:
Recognise any of the new characters? There’s Robin, Bane and Poison Ivy, the ones that have been in mainstream media. There’s also Brainiac- possibly the narrator and the big bad this time and Darkseid, a pre-order DLC character.
A proper character reveal, which showcases gameplay, is teased in the official website. At the time of writing, the next reveal will be in 19 days.
Injustice 2 will arrive in May 16 for the PS4 and Xbox One, bringing in loot-based customisation into a fighting game.
