Brainiac attacks in this new trailer for Injustice 2

Injustice: Gods Among Us! Not just a fine fighting game, but a fighting game with a surprisingly good story attached to it as well. Set in an alternate reality where a more dickish Man of Steel had risen to power and toppled every government around, it was up to Batman and his team of rebels to strike back against this new empire. And what better way to do so, than with a Superman who hadn’t been corrupted?

Injustice 2 however, is picking up shortly after the events of that first game, although it looks like the world will need a certain Kryptonian on their side and out of his red solar prison when another threat comes knocking on the door. “Though Batman has won the battle with Superman, he’s still facing threats on all sides,” NetherRealm Studios Cinematic Director Dominic Ciancolo wrote on the PS Blog.

Former members of Superman’s regime continue to elude justice. And a shadowy new group, The Society, threatens chaos across the globe.

With many of his allies either victims of, or collaborators with, Superman’s failed regime, Batman faces this dangerous world short of help. That’s why he’s brought together a new squad of super heroes. When Earth is invaded and threatened with destruction, Batman and his new team are thrust into action!

Crafting Injustice 2’s story has been exciting and challenging. The first game’s story and the great tie-in comic book series gave us a wealth of ideas on how to continue the stories of the first game’s characters like the Flash and Harley Quinn. They also gave us a solid foundation for adapting the canonical histories of the game’s new faces, like Supergirl and Blue Beetle, so that their stories fit within the Injustice universe.

The biggest challenge? Extending the Injustice narrative, without repeating ourselves. We knew that the game’s core conflict – Batman versus Superman – had to remain front and center. But to keep Injustice moving forward, we needed more.

Enter Brainiac.

There are few in the DC universe that could top “Dictator Superman” as a foe for Batman. The challenges don’t come much bigger than a determined Man of Steel. But in Brainiac, Batman faces a challenge like none he’s faced before.

Brainiac possesses superior intelligence, impossibly advanced technology, and inexhaustible resources. The overwhelming threat he poses to Earth forces Batman to question everything he knows. It also makes him consider crossing lines he’d vowed to never cross…

Hot diggity! Sounds about as epic as can be for a DC Universe game. As for that rumour of Darkseid being a pre-order bonus? That’s 100% confirmed now.

Something wrong gentlemen? You come here prepared to read the words of a madman, and instead found a lunatic obsessed with comics, Batman and Raul Julia’s M Bison performance in the 1994 Street Fighter movie? Fine! Keep your bio! In fact, now might be a good time to pray to it!

  • Supes evil and stuff? All mad and stuff? Yeah. Now that’s cool. Superman is much cooler as a madman

    • Hammersteyn

      But Superman doesn’t have a batmobile

      • No, but he makes a better villain than a hero

        • Hammersteyn

          True, when the high and mighty falls they fall very far

          • hehehe. So funny coz he can fly high.

          • Hammersteyn

      • Hammersteyn

        I’m getting really tired of this preorder, DLC, season pass culture that “gamers” has seemingly embraced… it’s depressing really

  • Avithar

    This game is epic to you read the other story around DLC and the different versions that will be released….
