Hitting shelves in North America in less than a week, the folks at Warner Bros. Games have released an official trailer for Injustice 2, showcasing new features not only to the Injustice series but to the entire fighting genre.
Titled ‘Everything You Need to Know’ the trailer shows off the tight Story Mode, a few characters from the mammoth-sized roster, newly added gear to equip fighters with and the social online Guilds and new fighting mode called the Multiverse. If anything the newest 5 minute video gives players a chance to see just how much this new fighter is determined to change the way we play these games. It’s no longer about which characters are good or evil, who has the better move list or who claims the most popular; but more about decisions, customisation and an audacious new approach to competition.
In a devastating manner the game takes place with an all-out war between all factions of the DC universe, including superheroes, super-villains and new additional wild card characters like Supergirl and Swamp Thing. Making your way through the extensive storyline, fighting through opposing alliances to reach the ultimate battle facing-off against the maniacal prodigy Brainiac, you’ll be faced with crucial decisions to make along the way, ever-changing the tide of battle.
You’ll find out there’s up’s and down’s through all aspects of the story, whether you’re fighting in alliance with the likes of Superman, Batman, Gorilla Grodd or choosing to go solo as Swamp Thing or even Brainiac himself.
Injustice 2 has a deep story allowing players to create their own experience while in control of DC’s expansive list of most notable characters all the way to the lesser-known heroes and villains in the spectrum of DC comics. What makes this sequel ground-breaking is the new addition of equipping gear to your fighters. With different stat upgrades, unique appearances and a variety of special moves, each character can be suited to your liking after earning gear through winning fight after fight, making the vast roster seem even more daunting.
NetherRealm Studios brings more to the table in terms of challenging the player offline as well as online. With the all-new Multiverse in play, you have constantly changing challenges that modify battles, bringing new ways to play the game. Awarding you with rare gear and adding more to depth outside of the story mode, Multiverse is an important addition, keeping the game fresh and innovative far passed its initial release.
