Transgressions of the past shape actions to come.
Lines are redrawn as our favorite DC heroes and villains take sides in the coming battle. Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and DC Entertainment just released the story trailer for the highly anticipated sequel to the critically acclaimed Injustice: Gods Among Us (see below).
Developed by NetherRealm Studios, Injustice 2 promises to alleviate the current standards of fighting games in a unique way – one of which is the addition of their customizable armor that will not only alter your character’s look but also affect their fighting style. Players can personalize the look of these iconic DC characters with unique equipment that is earned through battles. With several gameplay videos spread across YouTube, it is clear that this game will deliver stunningly epic showdowns and cataclysmic fights that will redefine action games.
However, it is not just the combat that fans are excited for. Injustice: Gods Among Us delivered a stunning adaptation of the classic DC Universe where Superman, following the loss of his wife and unborn child, takes things into his own hands and puts the world under his rule. With Superman currently being locked up, we are eager to find out how and why the story continues.
Following the events of the first Injustice game, Batman and the resistance work towards repairing the damage done during Superman’s tyrannic reign. Even with the Man of Steel locked away, the planet is still in bad shape due to opposition by those who allied with Superman which incidentally provides the opening for supervillain Brainiac to enter and just make everything worse. Narrated by Brainiac, the trailer gives little insight into his motivations, but it does sounds like the Earth is going to enter another era of war.

The upcoming game will featuring a massive roster of DC Super Heroes and Super-Villains which includes, but not limited to, Batman, Superman, Supergirl, Aquaman, Atrocitus, Gorilla Grodd, Blue Beetle, and Wonder Woman.
