Injustice 2, the sequel to the GROUNDBREAKING Injustice: Gods Among Us, is coming out for PS4/Xbone (get hosed, PC) on May 16, 2017. We are sucked back into Earth-2 or wherever this alt-universe is, wherein Superman's wife got killed by the Joker leading to a totalitarian regime commenced by the Justice League. Join Batman, Margot Robbie, Robin 666, and all their buddies for an epic DBZ showdown with Supergirl and (insert 2 new characters here.) Hitboxes, and faces, will be destroyed.


-- WELCOME BACK TO THE STAGE OF HISTORY: Ed Boon has stated that the Story mode for this game is his biggest and bestest yet, putting all Netherrealm narratives to shame. To be fair, this is a rather low bar to clear, but it's probably going to be better than any cinematic experience you get from Warner Bros. this year. I'm looking forward to Atrocitus promoting Red Lanterns Matter, Swamp Thing making out with Poison Ivy in the club, and Batman agonizing whether or not he should kill Superman for ruining his sweet Macbook setup in Injustice 1 that he was totally gonna use for a DJ set.

-- MODULAR COSPLAY: A mix between the variant system of MKX and the pisspoor itemization in Smash Bros 4, Injustice 2 introduces a brand new equipment system via way of dropped loot. You can mix and match costume parts for each character, changing not only their cosmetic appearance, but their fighting stats, as well. Additionally, some gear can even modify special moves i.e. Batman having an anti-air Batarang versus giving him an air-to-ground one. Some these even affect character skills, like Atrocitus' kitty cat call-in. You'll be able to save loadouts for each character as well. For those of you who hate fun or just want a fair fight, the option to play "pure" without the gear stats is also available.



-- MORE Z-LISTERS THAN EVER BEFORE:

With a starting roster of over 30 kooky heroes and villains, Injustice is even bigger than its predecessor. This number swells even larger with the 9 DLC characters + Darkseid + the "reskin" heroes like Zoom, Power Girl, and Jon Stewart.


-- WITNESS THE EXTENT OF THE MULTIVERSE: Injustice 2 takes a page out of MKX's Towers but mixes it up with the fine powder of the STAR Labs segments. Taking place across new planets and challenges every day/week/month, each themed planet has specific fights, objectives, and variables, as well as a refresh of cool gear constantly.




-- BATMAN HAS A NEW STANCE: Thank loving god

WHERE THE gently caress IS MY CHARACTER?
Sorry, but it's likely that characters like Ares, Deathstroke (replaced by Will Smith), Doomsday (replaced by Harambe), Hawkgirl (cooked by an oven), Killer Frost (replaced by Mr. Freeze, Captain Cold, and Sub-Zero), and Solomon Grundy (replaced by evil red dude who vomits blood and has a killer kitty) will not show up again. Not confirmed of course but it's likely, so don't hold your breath. Characters not named in any leaks/information pamphlets like Shazam, Sinestro, or Lobo could still return, so STAY TUNED TRUE BELIEVERS.


PREORDER/DLC!!!!


Much like MKX, Injustice 2 has a giant badass embarrassing Big Boy edition. Pay $99 for Darkseid, 3 premium Power Girl/Zoom/Jon Stewart reskins, and 9 DLC characters, 2 of which will probably be Spawn and Bad Mr. Frosty from Clayfighter. No matter what, you get ubergoober Darkseid for preordering this game.





DLC PACK NUMERO UNO

Starfire, Sub-Zero, and the Red Hood are confirmed as the first 3 DLC fighters.

I'm gonna be playing Bane and breaking all the puny Batmen over my knee again like in the good old days, thanks for reading.

Also if I'm dumb enough at the time, I might get the bad with money edition so I can replace boring rear end Hal Jordan with Phil LaMarr John Stewart.

No idea what chair you're referring to but there is a big sandbag you can punch and launch into your opponent on one of the stages. Sadly I have yet to see a luchador stage where you can smack people with a chairshot or a table. Maybe it'll come with the Chris Benoit DLC.

Slaughter Swamp is one of the stages, so its either Grundy or Swamp thing's stage(or both?)

Black Canary reveal! Sporting one hell of a wedgie, like her melee moves. Also showing the new Arkham Asylum level, it's super toned down!

Once again the newer trailers aren't showing any of the customization armor which worries me. As dumb as it looked it's kind of this games main gimmick.

I don't know poo poo about Black Canary but she's looking like a Sonya Blade stand-in, really bland. This at least continues to fall in line with the leak---looks like it's for real. This leaves Scarecrow, Mr. Freeze, Doctor Fate, Firestorm, Swamp Thing, and Cheetah as the remaining newcomers. Still hoping for The Spectre and Etrigan.

There was a stream where they covered gear stuff and the beta shows off a lot of costume options. Much like how MKX's Variation system boiled down to pros only playing 1 of the 3, I'm guessing the gear stuff will be focused on less in trailers for the sake of Injustice 2's status in places like EVO this year. The gear is more or less for fun-mode single and multiplayer modes. After the SFV debacle and given how incredible MKX sales were, NRS probably wants to cover all their bases for single player content and extras even after tourney poo poo.

Bane has like 5 different looks across games/movies/shows in the last few years but I'm sure the classic lucha mask will be available for this.

A new round of beta codes are going out soon, and the beta is being updated with Blue Beetle.

legit question you could ask about almost any comic character but with DC they reboot their poo poo so many loving times that I don't even know if Superman is still from Kansas or even Krypton. The worst might be the roboBatsuit that James Gordon wore for a while (maybe he still does!? Is Joker still deaD? who loving knows)

My first thought was literally "Sonya Blade is in Injustice 2" when I saw this. Also if it didn't say Black Canary I would have never known who this was in a vacuum without her fishnets and mask.

Vid meant to show off Canary but first actual gameplay of Deadshot. If you thought he was gonna be toned down Deathstroke well initial look says thats way off base. He's a bastard child of Deathstroke and full auto jacqui, with a pinch of gunslinger erron tossed in. Only thing he's missing(which may be in just not shown in video) is instant air guns.

Since the game and comic have been good about keeping the continuity smooth, here are some of the more notable dead characters in the Injustice universe. In other words, guys you shouldn't expect to see outside of alt skins:

- Beast Boy
- Kid Flash
- Kalibak
- Captain Atom
- Kyle Rayner
- Despero
- John Stewart
- Guy Gardner
- Ganthet
- Phantom Stranger
- Huntress
- Kilowog
- Parasite
- Heatwave
- Weather Wizard

Bizarro died too, but he was just a failed clone of Superman, so there's no reason we couldn't just get another one.

There Diomedes aimed and stabbed, he gouged him down
his glistening flesh and wrenched the spear back out
and the brazen god of war let loose a shriek, roaring,
thundering loud as nine, ten thousand combat soldiers
shriek with Ares' fury when massive armies clash.
