The lines between heroes and villains are drawn and redrawn in the first story trailer for NetherRealm’s DC Comic fighting game sequel Injustice 2.
Releasing in May, the sequel sees alliances from the first game redefined, as the villain Brainiac enters the fray. The story trailer recaps the events of the first game, including the death of Lois Lane and her unborn child at the hands of Joker which drove Superman mad and turned him into a world ruling tyrant, before defining the changes that are occurring to the world and the characters within it.
While Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, The Flash, Aquaman, Supergirl, Blue Beetle, Harley Quinn, Deadshot, Gorilla Grodd and Atrocious were previously announced playable characters, they are not alone. Damian Wayne/Robin, Poison Ivy, Bane and Brainiac all appear in the trailer and are likely playable characters.
At the end of the trailer it is revealed that the Lord of Apokolips himself, Darkseid, is a pre-order exclusive playable character in the game.
Injustice 2 releases this May.
