Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and DC Entertainment have just unveiled ‘Injustice 2,’ the sequel to the ‘Injustice: Gods Among Us.’ Developed by NetherRealm Studios, it features an impressively large roster of DC Super Heroes and Super-Villains and gives players the ability to build and power up the ultimate versions of their favorite DC characters. Injustice 2 will be available for Xbox One and the PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system sometime in 2017.
“In ‘Injustice 2,’ we are introducing new features that will change the way fans play fighting games,” said Ed Boon, Creative Director, NetherRealm Studios. “We’re always interested in pushing the genre forward and allowing players to customize and level-up their favorite DC Super Heroes and Super-Villains is a significant leap.”
“Expanding the DC Universe in games continues to be one of our top priorities, and ‘Injustice 2’ showcases amazing gameplay and an original story to bring the characters to life for players,” said David Haddad, President, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment. “NetherRealm Studios is offering fans an experience of customizing and battling with DC’s iconic characters in an entirely new way.”
Warner Bros. Interactive entertainment states that ‘Injustice 2’ picks up and continues the story that was introduced in Injustice: Gods Among Us as Batman and his allies work to put the world back together while fighting against those who support Superman’s regime and want to restore it. Players can play from the biggest DC roster ever offered in a fighting game, from classic fan favorites such as Batman, Superman, Supergirl and Aquaman, to astonishing new villains like Atrocitus and Gorilla Grodd. Battles will take place across arenas that have evolved in scale and span across iconic locations such as Metropolis, Gotham City and Atlantis.
