Injustice 2 Unleashes The Lord Of Apokolips On Us All

Injustice 2

The most recent character revealed for Injustice 2, in terms of gameplay, is Darkseid who is still listed as Injustice 2's pre-order bonus

We still have another character to see this week for Injustice 2 but that doesn't mean that we won't have a nice little showing of a different one out there. While what we have here isn't a full unannounced character from NetherRealm Studios, it is our first real look at Darkseid in the game outside of just a pretty face. He is still the pre-order bonus for Injustice 2 before you get too worried that he has been added in for all no matter when they get the game, but he now has a full showing to impress us. Hopefully you've pre-ordered you PS4 or Xbox One version of the game as May 16th is almost here.

Have a look at Darkseid in Injustice 2 here. I'll give you a chance to see him in action before I dig into what my personal takeaway for the character is based on all of this. Please watch and enjoy your first real look at Darkseid.

Injustice 2 — Introducing Darkseid!


A being of pure hate incarnate, the lord of Apokolips Darkseid demands the total subjugation of all existence. His merciless obsession has left a wake of suffering and obliteration as he seeks the Anti-Life Equation. With his invincible body, limitless strength, army of Parademons, and the annihilating power of his Omega Beams make him not only a threat to this world, but to every world within reach.

It feels like I say this with many of the revealed Injustice 2 characters, but Darkseid looks downright amazing here. He does look a little overpowered at first but I'll assume it is just how NetherRealm Studios wanted to present the character for now as it is his trailer. It does look like his laser weapon is going to be the biggest special attack he has but it looks overly effective in this trailer here. It looks to be able to do trick shots as well as return other opponent's projectiles. Not to mention the way he moves about the screen is just so fitting for the character. He is so calm and collected while the rest look to be moving in frantic motions. They completely nailed this character here in Injustice 2.

Does this new look at Darkseid sell you on pre-ordering Injustice 2 or are you still holding out for more? Do you think that his lasers will be annoying more than helpful or will that only be the thoughts of those not playing as Darkseid here? Who do you think the next big character reveal will be when we get it later on? Let us know down in the comments and then discuss. There will be a lot more on Injustice 2 in the coming days and weeks and we will have it all here for you. Be sure to check back in here so you can see and experience it all just before May 16th when we all get the full game.
