“Injustice 2” release date will be some time in May. The game is already ready to be pre-ordered despite being some months away.

The upcoming game is the sequel of “Injustice: Gods Among Us.” This game allows players to be able to build and power up heroes and villains from the DC Comics universe. These playable characters can be personalised with unique and powerful gear that can be earned throughout the course of the game. In the new version of the game, players will be able to take more control of how the characters will look, fight and develop.

According to the game's official site, it will offer a bigger roster of DC characters than ever before. Classic characters in the game involve the likes of Batman, Superman, Supergirl, the Flash, Aquaman and Wonder Woman. New villains will also join the roster with Atrocitus, Gorilla Grodd and Deadshot. In addition to new characters, the storyline will continue the story of the previous instalment of the game.

‘Injustice 2’ standard, deluxe and ultimate editions

There are three editions that will be released for the game. According to the official website, the game will offer better DLC in the Ultimate edition of the game. It will include nine DLC with three premiere skins that will transform the Flash, Green Lantern and Supergirl into alternate characters. This would change their looks, voice and dialogue. In addition to these, the Ultimate edition will also have two exclusive gear shader packs.

The Deluxe edition of the game offers three DLC. A premiere skin will also be available for Supergirl and one exclusive gear shader pack. On the other hand, the Standard edition will only offer the game itself.
