While information is scarce, there have been number of characters confirmed. Harley Quinn and Deadshot had a reveal trailer; Wonder Woman and Blue Beetle also had their own trailer. While these characters did not have a trailer, they have been confirmed: Superman, Batman, Supergirl, Aquaman, Atrocitus, and Gorilla Grodd. It is unknown how large the roster will be however Warner Brothers have claimed it will be the largest DC roster in any fighting game.
The game continues the story from Injustice: Gods Among Us. It will have Batman and other DC heroes rebuilding society after Superman’s reign. Much of the fighting systems will remain the same, but there will be new additions. One of the biggest additions will be a gear system. Different pieces of clothing drop randomly and can be equipped for various stat boosts. Other details have yet to be reveal, but expect more as we move closer to May.
Injustice 2 launches on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
