NetherRealm’s Injustice 2 is a complex tale of three DC Comics-based factions,and a whole lot of wild cards.
Everything and then some
That little vid ties everything together quite nicely, from what we’ve seen in the previous looks at Injustice 2. NetherRealm’s games continue to have some of the most impressive stories in the fighting genre too. This one in particular is, dare I say it, even a little complicated.
So not only are Superman and Batman’s assembled teams of heroes against each other AND Brainiac, but there’s also Grodd’s team of villains. Then there’s a whole mess of solo acts sprinkled about too. And wrapped up in all of it, is one massive amount of fan service paying homage to a load of DC Comics history.
I like the integration of the mobile edition too, which seems expanded for I2. And the Multiverse section seems like it could extend gameplay for a good long time past the launch. I’m not overly familiar with Mortal Kombat’s tower system, but this seems like a play on that, which’d be a good thing. As I understand it, the towers add plenty of incentive to keep coming back, even past the initial ‘wow factor’ of the game, and its campaign mode.
Sao lots happening here in Injustice 2, and the game’s release is coming up fast. Expect to see it hitting retail for the Xbox One and PS4 on May the 16th.
