Injustice 2

Wonder Woman and Blue Beetle will be playable characters in Injustice 2, Warner Bros. announced at Comic-Con in San Diego.

Find some details below, via the PlayStation Blog.

Wonder Woman

Just in time for her 75th anniversary, Wonder Woman makes her return to the Injustice franchise. In the first Injustice game, Wonder Woman’s character power gave her the ability to switch between her Sword & Shield attacks and her Lasso of Truth. In Injustice 2, she is no longer limited to when she can use her Amazonian weaponry.

Now, Wonder Woman brings the whole arsenal. Combining her long range Lasso attacks with quick hitting sword combos makes her an even more powerful brawler than before. And while she is at her best dealing damage up close, her Shield Toss and the ability to reflect fireballs with her Bracelets of Submission means she is no slouch from afar.

Her new character power has her gain blessings from the Greek Gods which enhance her combat capabilities in a variety of ways. For example, Hermes can enhance her mobility and give her the ability to air dash.

Blue Beetle

The other new character we are proud to announce is a character fans have been asking for since the first Injustice. Blue Beetle makes his debut in Injustice 2. His alien technology allows him to form various gadgets and weapons for his power suit that make him a well-rounded, Jack of All Trades type character that can be effective up close and from afar.

Blue Beetle’s hands can turn into shields, blades, and clubs for punishing close range combos, and he can attack from a distance by turning his hand into an energy cannon that fires quick blasts from the ground or air. He can also use the wings on his back for air mobility, both to advance or escape from the opponent.

His unique character power allows him to transform his arms into long razor sharp blades that enhance his range and effectiveness up close but at a price: while his blades are active he can no longer use his fireballs. And his supermove is incredible. Blue Beetle cycles through many different weapons before finishing off his opponents with a powerful series of energy blasts. We can’t wait to see what players can do with Blue Beetle when they finally get their hands on him.

Injustice 2 is due out for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in 2017.
