The first gameplay trailer for the comic-based beat-em-up Injustice 2 has arrived, and the epic clash of DC’s heroes and villains does not look to disappoint. 

The trailer shows off Supergirl, Batman, Superman, Grodd, Aquaman (getting an epic assist from his ocean pals),  Black Manta, Atrocitus and Dex-Starr kicking the ever-loving crap out of one another. The graphics look positively amazing, and the action is next level wild. You get to see characters go flying through the cityscape, and Supergirl takes a positively brutal hit that tosses her into a subway car. As expected, it looks amazing.

One of the big changes in the sequel is the addition of a mountain of upgradeable gear and minutiae for all the different fighters, which allows for a massive amount of customization, meaning your version of The Flash might look completely different than someone else’s take on Barry Allen. The creators say it should add more playability to the fighter title, since there are so many different things you can do with the characters.

Injustice 2 is set to arrive in 2017.
