Will you be a Cheetah in the new Injustice 2 trailer?

Injustice

There can be fewer more fun and exciting things than taking two super heroes and making them face off in a battle. Forgetting the drudgery of Batman Vs Superman, as let’s face it, it was simply awful, the sight of two virtually indestructable super-human beings beating seven bells out of each other is mouth-watering at worst. NetherRealm Studios, with Warner Brothers Interactive Entertainment are bringing a second helping of this fun, based primarily off the DC hero universe, in Injustice 2.

They have released a new gameplay trailer, featuring the fighting talents of the feral Cheetah, in preparation for the impending release. Watch on as Cheetah performs acrobatic kicks, slashes, jumps and throws against the likes of Wonder Woman and Deadshot. Cheetah joins the roster with the already announced, and trailered, Firestorm, Doctor Fate, Catwoman, Poison Ivy and Black Canary. These will join the usual likes of Batman, Superman, Swamp Thing and other DC universe powerhouses, ready to duke it out, mano-a-mano.

Injustice 2 will feature those mentioned and others in a massive roster of DC Super Heroes and Super Villains. Just as with the first release, it will allow the player to build and power-up the ultimate version of their favourite DC characters.

Injustice 2 will be heading to Xbox One from the 19th of May, and is mostly available for pre-order now, in three flavours, Standard, Digital Deluxe and Ultimate Editions. Digital Deluxe Edition will include three extra DLC fighters and the Powergirl character skin for Supergirl.

Ultimate Edition, with pre-orders opening soon, will include nine extra DLC fighters, the Powergirl skin, plus alternate looks for The Flash and Green Lantern.

New Shadow of War gameplay trailer revealed

Shadow

A little over a week ago, we brought you news of the sequel to Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor. Titled Middle Earth: Shadow of War, it sees the return of Talion and his bonded Wraith, Celebrimbor, making a comeback as The Bright Lord. A new Ring of Power has been forged in the fires of Mount Doom, and Sauron’s forces must be bent to your will with it, or defeated.

Now, developer Monolith Productions and Warner Brothers Interactive Entertainment have released a brand new gameplay trailer to whet your already salivating appetite for Shadow of War. In this 16 minute video we’ll see Talion lead a fortress assault on the mountain valley stronghold of Seregost to take it from one of Sauron’s Overlords, Ur-Hakon the dragonlord.

This trailer also showcases the power of the New Ring and its ability to recruit Followers during enemy encounters. This new mechanic allows gamers to establish new stories of loyalty, betrayal and revenge. This particular gameplay walkthrough features Thrak Storm-Bringer, who was one of Talion’s followers and now harbours a grudge against him. It is just one of the millions of possibilities that players will experience in Middle Earth: Shadow of War.

As mentioned last week, this sequel builds on the innovative Nemesis system, evolving it into the next generation of interactive storyboarding for games. It also introduces Nemesis Fortresses, where players must utilise different strategies to conquer dynamic strongholds and forge their personalised Orc army as well has expanding the RPG  elements of the game.

Pre-order Shadow of War and you can benefit from a bonus Epic Sword of Dominion and four legendary Orc Champions too.

Middle Earth: Shadow of War will be available on Xbox One and Project Scorpio from August the 25th.

Arkham Knight – the content behind the pass

Earlier this week, Rocksteady Studios announced that Batman: Arkham Knight would be receiving a Season Pass that had quite the price tag – naturally this was met with widespread disappointment from fans, mainly feeling that the pass should have at least been included in some of the more expensive Arkham Knight editions.

Batgirl

The content of the pass is due to be delivered during the six months following the game’s release, and while the team at Rocksteady aren’t ready to share the full content of what the pass includes, they are aware that they are asking a lot from fans – with a pass that is nearly as expensive as the game itself. Rocksteady have therefore decided to reveal some of the Season Pass content, which has certainly piqued my interest!

  • Batgirl: A Matter of Family
  • The Season of Infamy
  • Gotham City Stories
  • Legendary Batmobiles with Themed Tracks
  • Crimefighter Challenge Maps
  • Character Skins

For more details on the content, take a look at the Arkham Knight forums.
