NetherRealm Studios released the story trailer for their upcoming superhero fighting game, Injustice 2. A sequel to 2013’s Injustice: Gods Among Us, Injustice 2 continues the story of the original in which the Joker kills Lois Lane causing Superman to loose his grip on his ‘humanity’. Superman, in an effort to maintain absolute order, becomes the dictator of the planet while many of the other influential heroes from the DC comic cniverse try to stop his tyrannical rule. The new trailer shows a chained up Superman (after being captured at the end of Injustice: Gods Among Us), a Batman who seems unshaken by the crimes plaguing Gotham, and a brawl between comic book icons who are normally allies.
Injustice 2 introduces new heroes and villains to the fight, such as Super Girl and Brainiac. The game is scheduled for release on May 16th, 2017.
