NetherRealm Studios and Warner Bros. released what is presumably going to be the final promotional trailer for Injustice 2. Whether it is or it isn't doesn't really matter, since it spends five whole minutes breaking down everything you need to know about the DC brawler.
The trailer was posted up over on the official Injustice YouTube channel, and it starts by covering the game's multi-layered story mode featuring the DC heroes and villains.
The narrator quickly breezes through the basic plot of the story, which revolves around the Earth dimension where Injustice takes place being a fractured and tumultuous place. The Justice League there is in shambles, and Batman and Superman are fighting to take back control of what little remains of the Justice League.
Meanwhile, Gorilla Grodd and his Society -- consisting of mercenaries and outcasts, such as Bane, Catwoman, Captain Cold, and Deadshot, to name a few -- is looking to take over and eradicate what's left of the Justice League. Batman teams up with Harley Quinn, Black Canary, and a few others, while Supergirl attempts to bring together anyone she can to help fight off Brainiac's invasion.
Based on the story, Swamp Thing and Atrocitus aren't actually aligned with anyone in Injustice 2, which is pretty cool. It definitely makes me wonder what role they'll play in the overall story development?
The trailer then moves on to the game's customization and gear system. We see how different gear can affect the stats and performance of the fighters, as well as how there are a variety of different outfits that can be acquired as well.
And speaking of acquiring outfits in Injustice 2... the trailer rolls out a mode I didn't even know existed in the game: The Multiverse Mode.
This mode is a persistent challenge mode with story elements that updates and evolves over time. According to NetherRealm, they'll be updating the Multiverse daily, weekly and monthly with new story quests, mission objectives, challenges, and perks.
Completing progressively harder quests in the Multiverse will unlock high-tier new gear for your characters, which is pretty cool.
The ability to fight and unlock new gear, upgrade the characters, customize their outfits and unlock classic skins seems like the sort of thing that could keep fans engrossed in the world of Injustice 2 for ages.
We'll see just how well the content and replayability holds up when the game launches next week on May 16th for the Xbox One and PS4.
