Injustice 2 will launch on May 16 for PS4 and Xbox One, the developer has announced. Creative director Ed Boon confirmed the anticipated news on Twitter recently:
Gods Among Us was well received by critics and fans alike, with its over-the-top combat, dazzling special moves and – something rare for a fighting game – a compelling story mode.
Injustice 2 is the sequel to NetherRealm’s hugely popular Injustice: Gods Among Us from 2013, which saw iconic DC Universe heroes and villains collide in a brutally brilliant brawler.
The great thing about NetherRealm’s sequel is its use of lesser-known DC characters. Expanding the reaches of the lineup to those not immediately familiar to a casual audience will give players a chance to find out more about heroes and villains with great lore.
We’ve also recently got confirmation of Harley Quinn and Deadshot for the roster. Take a look at them in action in the latest all-guns-blazing trailer:
