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?"
