Latest Injustice 2 story trailer focuses on Brainiac

NetherRealm has released the fifth part of its Shattered Alliances story-focused trailer series for Injustice 2, this time focusing on the powerful being Brainiac who appears to be yet another contender in the game’s massive conflict.

As you can see in the trailer above, Brainiac will make one heck of an entrance in Injustice 2’s story mode, establishing from the onset that he’s not interested in taking sides so much as he is in sapping Earth of all its resources before discarding it. While it’s not totally clear from the brief bits of footage that are shown, it appears that Brainiac will serve as a common foe for Batman’s resistance, Superman’s regime, and possibly even Gorilla Grodd’s new villain-centric faction The Society. At the very least, Batman and Superman will have to briefly put aside their personal differences and work together if they hope to stop Brainiac’s plan. Lastly, the trailer also confirms that Brainiac will be a playable fighter so expect a spotlight video for him in the near future.

Injustice 2 will launch on May 16 in North America and May 19 in Europe for both Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
