The Regime Will Rise
Together with DC Entertainment and Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, NetherRealm dropped another story trailer for the highly anticipated sequel to critically acclaimed Injustice: Gods Among Us. While the previous trailer (see below) focused on the conflict narrated by supervillain Brainiac, the Shattered Alliance (Part 1) trailer shifts the focus back to the Man of Steel and sets up the foundation for the storyline. It is revealed that players will be gain insight into Superman’s plan to seize back control of his power, how this will play into Apokolips’ presence and Brainiac’s master plan is still unknown but you can expect a truly captivating story.
In addition to the new trailer, NetherRealm also released a new artwork which shows Superman and the Flash battling it out with Harley Quinn and Blue Beetle, which looks stunning!
The trailer also confirmed that Cyborg will be a playable character and joins the growing roster of confirmed playable characters so far which includes Batman, Blue Beetle, Black Canary, Flash, Harley Quinn, Superman, Supergirl, Swamp Thing, Wonder Woman, Deadshot, Gorilla Grodd, Aquaman, and Atrocitus. Additionally, Kevin Conroy will lend his voice to an undisclosed character. The character is unlikely to be Batman given that he has said that he is looking to venture out and explore more characters.
Injustice 2 will be available for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on May 16, 2017. Pre-order your copy here to get Darkseid as a playable character!
