The second story trailer for Injustice 2 sets up the rise of Superman’s Regime and Batman’s Insurgency to battle once again. With Superman behind bars and Batman needing to open his circle of trust, we’re re-introduced to Green Arrow and Green Lantern, the later of which joins Batman’s side along with The Flash in an attempt to make amends for what they did in the previous game.
The story is cut between some quick glimpse of gameplay including battles between Green Lantern and Cyborg as well as the recently announced Doctor Fate vs Superman, and some scenes of Green Arrow in combat confirming him as a playable hero. Another quick glimpse in the trailer shows Wally West battling The Flash in a cutscene battle, and Flash villain Captain Cold standing along several villains including Gorilla Grodd.
The original Injustice (and NetherRealm’s previous fighter Mortal Kombat X) was highly praised for its story and so far seems like Injustice 2 will be a great follow-up. Of course we know that the impending threat of Brainiac is looming over the heroes and villains of DC, we’ll just have to wait to see how he fits into the story when the game releases in May.
