The second half of last year saw gaming fans given the news they’d been waiting years for: finally we were to get a sequel to Injustice: Gods Among Us. And now, NetherRealm Studios has moved to confirm an official release date for Injustice 2.
Per NetherRealm’s Ed Boon, Injustice 2 has been given a May 16th, 2017 release. That means that you can once again start cracking skulls with your favourite DC heroes and villains in just over four months’ time.
The current blurb on this 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 is 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.
Injustice 2 will be released on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, and we absolutely cannot wait.SHARE YOUR COMMENTS BELOW OR ON TWITTER @STARBURST_MAG
