Developer NetherRealm and publisher Warner Bros. released a new trailer for Injustice 2, the DC universe fighting game. Named “The Lines are Redrawn,” it shows the aftermath of the first game’s story.
“Injustice 2 picks up where Injustice: Gods Among Us left off,” wrote NetherRealm’s cinematic director, Dominic Ciancolo in a PlayStation Blog post. “Though Batman has won the battle with Superman, he’s still facing threats on all sides. 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,” he continued. “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!”
Braniac looks to be one of the central villains this time around, with his advanced technology and intelligence providing an ample challenge for Batman.
Injustice 2 is set to launch May 16 for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
