Warner Bros. Interactive and DC Entertainment have confirmed that NetherRealm Studios will be working on Injustice 2 for a 2017 release, with the sequel to be released on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
NetherRealm’s Ed Boon said, “In Injustice 2, we are introducing new features that will change the way fans play fighting games. We’re always interested in pushing the genre forward and allowing players to customize and level-up their favourite DC Super Heroes and Super-Villains is a significant leap.”
Warners Brothers’ David Haddad added, “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. NetherRealm Studios is offering fans an experience of customizing and battling with DC’s iconic characters in an entirely new way.”
The early blurb on this long-awaited sequel reads:
Injustice 2 offers the latest DC fighting game experience that expands on the previous title’s larger-than-life showdowns. Every battle defines you in a game where players personalize iconic DC characters with unique and powerful gear earned throughout the game. For the first time gamers can take control of how their characters look, fight and develop across a variety of game modes.
Injustice 2 continues the epic cinematic story introduced in Injustice: Gods Among Us as Batman and his allies work towards putting the pieces of society back together while struggling against those who want to restore Superman’s regime. In the midst of the chaos, a new threat appears that will put Earth’s existence at risk. Players can play from the biggest DC roster ever offered in a fighting game, from classic fan favourites 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.
In addition to all of this, we’ve also been given a rather awesome-looking announcement trailer, which you can find in the player below:
