Every battle defines you in Injustice 2 - the next project from NetherRealm Studios. The first official trailer announces the game that will bring versions of DC Comics superheroes in conflict for a second time! Watch it below:

Superman, Batman Flash and Aquaman return for the trailer, fighting with exciting new addition Supergirl! The reason for the heroes' conflict this time is unknown, but the mysterious new threat seems decidedly gladiatorial.

"Injustice 2 continues the epic cinematic story introduced in Injustice: Gods Among Us as Batman and his allies work towards putting the pieces of society back together while struggling against those who want to restore Superman’s regime. In the midst of the chaos, a new threat appears that will put Earth’s existence at risk. Players can play from the biggest DC roster ever offered in a fighting game, from classic fan favorites such as Batman, Superman, Supergirl and Aquaman, to astonishing new villains like Atrocitus and Gorilla Grodd. Battles will take place across arenas that have evolved in scale and span across iconic locations such as Metropolis, Gotham City and Atlantis."

Fans will "define" themselves with each fight, able to customize their DC heroes and villains with a variety of armor options that change the design and play properties of each character. It's a fresh gimmick that once again distinguishes the DC Comics fighting game from NetherRealm Studios' better established Mortal Kombat series. Players will collect loot in-game, outfitting their fighters with RPG-like upgrades that the character will wear.

"Expanding the DC Universe in games continues to be one of our top priorities, and Injustice 2 showcases amazing gameplay and an original story to bring the characters to life for players," said David Haddad, President, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment. "NetherRealm Studios is offering fans an experience of customizing and battling with DC’s iconic characters in an entirely new way."

Fans can look forward to confirmed villains: Atrocitus and Gorilla Grodd -- villains famed for their longstanding rivalries with heroes like Green Lantern and Flash. Their inclusion - confirmed in a press release today - should narrow down speculation on the mystery foot shared by Ed Boon.

Injustice 2 will be available in 2017 for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Mortal Kombat Online will continue to follow further updates. Register to follow the unfolding reveals and tell us everything you're thinking on the DC Universe Injustice forum!
