With Injustice 2 slated for release next week, NetherRealm Studios has now decided to compile all of the information it believes fans need to know about the base materials for the forthcoming fighting game in one compact and easy-to-digest trailer. As it happens the only aspect of the title that the latest video doesn't discuss is the first round of DLC featuring Starfire, Red Hood, and Sub-Zero.
As seen below in NetherRealm Studios' latest trailer for the DC Comics-inspired fighting game, fans are given an overview of the title's story mode that begins with the dismantling of the Justice League as Batman and Superman battle for control, while Gorilla Grodd's nefarious Society seeks power and Brainiac attempts to take over the world. Of course, the footage also makes sure to give gamers a glimpse at every character on the roster in order to show how expansive the selection of heroes and villains is in Injustice 2.
Furthermore, the newest Injustice 2 trailer delves into the fighting game's gear system, showing off the ability for fans to alter the appearance and abilities of their favorite DC characters with helpful augmentations to stats, special moves, and abilities. Not to mention, NetherRealm Studios breaks down how fans can continue progressing their characters and gaining loot beyond the story campaign by doing battle in the Multiverse, which presents hourly, weekly, and daily challenges such as modifiers that change the way the game plays for increased difficulty.
The latest Injustice 2 trailer also encourages potential players to join guilds in order to earn exclusive rewards through daily and weekly challenges through collaboration with friends and other fans. And, lastly, NetherRealm Studios gives a better idea as to how the mobile version of Injustice 2 will work, by displaying some combat gameplay, introducing the notion of character shards, and confirming that the completion of certain challenges will unlock gear for the console iterations of the game.
Taking all of this into consideration, it seems as if NetherRealm Studios has primed Injustice 2 to be a much more in-depth experience than its 2013 predecessor Injustice: Gods Among Us. With any luck, the multiple expansion packs planned for the release's post-launch lifespan will go on to become as substantial as the game's standard assets appear to be, and won't end up alienating or dividing the main player base of the title.
Injustice 2 is set to release on May 16, 2017 for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
