Bolstering its roster of superhero smack-down contestants with DC's long legacy of caped crimefighters, NetherRealm's Injustice 2 has announced the addition of the ankh-wearing Doctor Fate.
The character first appeared in More Fun Comics #55 in 1940 and has undergone a series of different successors who proudly wear the powerful Cloak of Destiny. Fate joins previously-announced fellow combatants Black Canary, Swamp Thing and Cyborg in this battle-royale video game packed with an angry crowd of pugilistic superheroes and supervillains. Honestly, this game looks absolutely gorgeous and I will happily hand over my hard-earned cash when it arrives.
Here's the official synopsis from Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment:
The latest DC fighting game experience expands on the previous title's larger-than-life showdowns. Every battle defines you in a game where players personalize iconic DC characters with unique and powerful gear earned throughout the game. For the first time gamers can take control of how their characters look, fight and develop across a variety of game modes.
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, Gorilla Grodd and Deadshot. Battles will take place across arenas that have evolved in scale and span across iconic locations such as Metropolis, Gotham City and Atlantis.
