“Such folly and futility in the grand design”
“You either die a hero or live long enough to see yourself become the villain” – the often quoted line from The Dark Knight nicely sums up the plot of Injustice: Gods Among Us – the game/comic book series set in a darker version of the DC universe where Batman and The Justice League must fight Superman after he goes mad and takes over the world.
Developer NetherRealm Studios is heading back to that world later this year with Injustice 2 and today they released a brand new story trailer recapping the events of the first game and teasing things to come. Narrated by classic superman foe Brainiac (who serves as the game’s main villain), the teaser highlights Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman and Supergirl as the main characters, with appearances by Harley Quinn and Bane among others.
The trailer ends with the reveal of a special pre-order bonus we won’t spoil other than by saying we’re extremely excited.
Injustice 2 will be released on May 16 for Playstation 4 and Xbox One.
