Injustice 2 looks set to continue the story that was established in Injustice: Gods Among Us, the original game that released back in 2013. Whereas the original game pitted Batman against Superman as the central conflict, the situation in Injustice 2 is complicated by the arrival of Brainiac.

Featuring a playable roster of near 40 characters, Injustice 2 boasts a variety of characters from across the DC Universe, such as Doctor Fate, Cheetah, Poison Ivy, Bane, Atrocitus, and Gorilla Grodd.

This page will act as a central hub of knowledge for Injustice 2, containing every new piece of information as soon as it is announced by developer NetherRealm Studios.

Injustice 2 Release Date

Releasing four years after the original Injustice debuted back in 2013, Injustice 2 will be releasing worldwide on May 16. The sequel will be available on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, and a companion app is also set to release around the same time for both Android and iOS devices.

The Story of Injustice 2

As previously mentioned, the first Injustice pitted Batman against Superman, as the former sought to overthrow the latter's control over Earth. While Injustice 2 will follow on this storyline with those who would wish to restore Superman's domination over Earth, Gorilla Grodd has also established a group named 'The Society', whose motivations as of right now remain a mystery.

This is all complicated by the arrival of Brainiac, one of the many brand new characters featured in Injustice 2, who poses a threat to the very existence of Earth, going far beyond the original battle that was fought over control of Earth.
