The lights are on
Today, Warner Bros. Studios announced that it is releasing a new game developed by Mortal Kombat developer NetherRealm Studios titled Injustice: Gods Among Us.
The game is set in the DC universe and according to WB, players will be able to play as both heroes and villains in a world where "the lines between good and evil are blurred." The fact that it is being developed by NetherRealm, immediately conjures images of the classic Mortal Kombat series which they developed in recent years. However, WB has stated that the game contains "epic battles on a massive scale," which is extremely different from the one-on-one fighting games that the developer is known for.
Whatever the style of this game is, the President of Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment declares that Injustice: Gods Among Us will be "unlike any other in the fighting genre" and will involve rich storytelling and a large cast of DC favorites.
The game is scheduled for release in 2013 for the Xbox 360, Playstation 3, and Wii U, and poses the question: "What if our greatest heroes became our greatest threat?"

Well now we know they really did want to branch out beyond MK. Hope they succeed.
The need to make Marvel games like this, instead of those cartoony ones with Capcom... One day they'll learn
Wow I wasn't expecting that!
yeah, but the trailer for dc universe looked nice until i played it...it was so boring...
looks like it could be promising. If its by the makers of mortal kombat then I guess we better pay attention
After the disappointment that was MK vs DC, I'm not really looking into this
This looks awesome. I hope to see more in the near future.
NetherRealm did such an excellent job with Mortal Kombat and this looks pretty sick. I can't wait!
Have high hopes. I love DC. I love MK. I love Netherrealm and WB together. If the newest Mortal Kombat wasn't proof that Midway was strangling the life out of Mortal Kombat, I don't know what is. They're talented developers, they got this.
Eh, it looks alright I guess.
Label me intrigued.
I am breathless with anticipation!!!!!! Wow!!!
This looks awesome. Hopefully it's not another DC Universe or another LOST where you don't know what is going on.
Rich storytelling you say...you have me interested.
One things for sure. Their gonna change the games title.
