Warner Bros. and NetherRealm Studios have officially announced Injustice 2. The sequel to the DC universe fighting game Injustice: Gods Among Us will be available for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in 2017.
Injustice 2 will feature a “massive roster” of DC super heroes and super villains, and allows players to build and power up the ultimate version of their favorite DC characters.
Here’s the rundown, via Warner Bros.:
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 his 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 favorites 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.
To celebrate the announcement, Warner Bros. has made available Injustice 2 versions of Superman and Aquaman to unlock in the Injustice: Gods Among Us mobile game through in-game Challenge Modes.
