Warner Bros. and NetherRealm Studios released a new story trailer for their upcoming game, Injustice 2, and it is packed with new information.
Let’s start with the end of the trailer. Right after the game’s logo we get to know that the DC supervillain Darkseid is joining the roster, though he will be offered as a pre-order incentive. Basically you get to fight as Darkseid only if you get the game before launch.
NetherRealm did a similar thing with their previous game, Mortal Kombat X, where Goro was a pre-order bonus. However, down the road they made him available to everyone as DLC, so it isn’t farfetched to assume the same will happen to Darkseid.
The CGI trailer also showed off another supervillain, Brainiac, which is set to be the main antagonist in the Injustice 2 story. He is also the voice-over that we can hear during the trailer.
Whether the game will pick up where Injustice: Gods Among Us left off or it will follow the tie-in comic is left to be seen, but I encourage you to play the first game for the story which I won’t spoil for you.
Once again, our favorite DC superheroes will fight against each other, as announced on dccomics.com:
“The line between hero and villain has become blurred as the most epic battle in the DC universe rages on in Injustice 2. While Batman has emerged the victor in his battle against the Regime, a new threat arises and poses the ultimate threat to Earth.”
Also from the trailer we learn that Warner Bros. decided to have 3 editions for Injustice 2: a Standard Edition, a Digital Deluxe Edition, and an Ultimate Edition, the main difference being the number of additional fighters that you’ll get, along with some cosmetic bonuses.
