Injustice 2 Will Feature Suicide Squad Anti-Heroes Harley Quinn And Deadshot
If you love Suicide Squad, this summer’s blockbuster is only the tip of the iceberg. Anti-heroes Harley Quinn and Deadshot will be featured in Injustice 2.
Harley Quinn is returning with her trademark attitude, sidekicks, and moves. The trailer begins with Batman telling Quinn that she is out of control, with Quinn remarking, “That’s part of my charm”. Quinn exclaims comebacks like “Snack time boys!” to her dogs and “Again, again!” when she is being beaten up by enemies. Expert marksman and assassin Deadshot makes his debut in this video game. He says very little during the trailer, but smacks down his enemies with his killer aim and swift movements.
Other playable characters include Aquaman, Atrocitus, Batman, Blue Beetle, Flash, Gorilla Grodd, Supergirl, Superman, and Wonder Woman. Players will be able to personalize the characters with custom powers and gear. Online multiplayer will feature matchmaking options that separate players who want to fight geared or non-geared characters.
In the words of the creators, “Take control over how your favorite characters look, how they fight, and how they develop across a huge variety of game modes. This is your Legend. Your Journey. Your Injustice.”
Injustice 2 will continue the storyline established in Injustice: Gods Among Us. In an alternate reality Batman and his followers attempt to put society back together after the defeat of the High Councillor. It was announced at Comic-Con 2016 that there will be a comic book that will follow the backstory of the game. The chapters will be released weekly through retailers such as ComiXology, Google Play Books, the Kindle Store, and DC Comics' own mobile app. Print versions should be available shortly after.
Injustice 2 is an upcoming fighting video game being developed by NetherRealm Studios and published by Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment. The game is scheduled for release in 2017 for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, iOS and Android.
