A new Injustice 2 trailer has been released, showing off more of the “Shattered Alliances” storyline that was first put in another trailer. This trailer also shows off a few new heroes that haven’t been revealed yet, such as the Flash, Green Arrow, Reverse Flash, and Doctor Fate.
Injustice 2 picks up where the first Injustice left off. The Superman of the game’s alternate universe, who was toppled from being the ruler of Earth in the previous game, is imprisoned.
While the world struggles to rebuild, Batman and his team struggle to fight against Superman sympathizers that want to free him and restore the world to its former state.
At the same time, the Secret Society of Super Villains, which includes enemies like Gorilla Grodd, Lex Luthor, and more, are also plotting world domination, while Batman’s team threatens to fall apart from within.
The Flash and Green Arrow are some of DC’s most recognizable superheros. The Flash was the first ever super-speed hero, while the Green Arrow has a bow and a variety of arrows that he can use against his enemies.
Both heroes were in the previous Injustice game, and will be making a return in Injustice 2.
The new Injustice 2 trailer promises a lot from its story, which is fitting considering how the first Injustice got praise for its story mode.
That in itself is a rarity for fighting games, which often have their story modes criticized for being shallow and rushed.
Either way, with the new Injustice 2 trailer promising a lot from its story, DC may actually have a big hit here, especially considering the various disasters DC and Warner Bros have had to go through back in 2016 with the critical disasters that were Batman vs Superman and Suicide Squad.
Hopefully Injustice 2 and its story mode will help DC to regain some prestige.
