Darkseid is Ready to Unleash his Omega Beams in Injustice 2

NetherRealm Studios has finally revealed the hotly anticipated lord of Apokolips, Darkseid.

Fans may not be happy that Darkseid is being gated off as a pre-order only character, but it’s still exciting to see one the biggest badguys in the DC Universe realized in Injustice 2. His brand new gameplay trailer does not disappoint, showing off just how brutal the character can be.

Darkseid is a being of pure hate. The Lord of Apokolips is obsessed with finding the anti-life equation, and bringing all of existence under his subjugation. Calm and collected, Darkseid uses his brute force to beat the enemy into submission. His Boom Tubes allow him to teleport behind the opponent, and his Omega Beams are drawn to his prey. Darkseid’s supermove will show the forces of Earth why he is a threat to all worlds.

Injustice 2 is out May 16 on PS4 and Xbox One, and will launch with 29 characters should you pre-order the game to unlock Darkseid. The final character, Joker, is expected to be revealed today.
