New 'Injustice 2' Video Game Trailer Plays Up 'Suicide Squad' Additions
For anyone who wants to take on the best of the best superheroes and fight dirty, now there's an easier way to do it.
The latest trailer for upcoming video game Injustice 2 showcases the two latest additions to the game's playable character base — and they're as violent as any fan of Suicide Squad could hope to see.
Following their addition to the mobile version of the first Injustice game earlier this month, Deadshot and Harley Quinn will show up in the sequel to the 2013 NetherRealm Studios/Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment hit game, with their debut announced via the new trailer, which shows the various fighting moves the two members of the Suicide Squad will offer: gun tricks, massive mallets to the head and literal attack dogs.
The presence of Harley in the game follows Injustice comic writer Tom Taylor telling Heat Vision that his spinoff comic book had informed the creation of the new game; in the Injustice comic book series, Harley has been one of the main characters since the launch, teaming up with a succession of heroes in an attempt to replace the Joker in her affections.
Injustice 2 is set to be released for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in 2017.
