“Lots” of New Injustice 2 Info Coming Next Week, Prequel Comic Releases in April

Having announced the Injustice 2 online beta, NetherRealm Studios is ready to share “lots” of new information about the game next week.

According to a tweet by Director Ed Boon (below), you’ll get more details during the Injustice 2 Watchtower Twitch stream next week.

In addition to this, DC Entertainment has revealed new details on a prequel comic that’s set to be released digitally on April 11. In a press release, the company wrote:

Injustice fans can dive into the earth-shattering universe before the game launch via the prequel comic, which will debut new chapters every week. DC also announced that fan favorite artist Bruno Redondo will join series writer Tom Taylor as the book’s lead artist.

Redondo previously worked with Taylor on the hugely successful Injustice: Gods Among Us comic book series in 2013 and has recently reached an agreement with DC to create comic book content solely for the company’s DC and Vertigo imprints.   

The prequel comic book storyline will look to bridge the gap between the first Injustice videogame and the upcoming Injustice 2 game that debuts in May 2017.

DC will also offer the Injustice 2 comic as a twice-monthly print periodical starting in May.

Injustice 2 releases on May 16 for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
