The new trailer for Netherrealm's Injustice 2 that premiered today not only sheds new light on the fighting game's story, but it also confirms the game's next playable character and more. The DC super villain Darkseid is joining the roster. You can get Darkseid by pre-ordering Injustice 2, though it remains to be seen if he will be available to unlock by other means.

History suggests that Darkseid will eventually be attainable without pre-ordering. Another Netherrealm game, Mortal Kombat X, offered Goro as a pre-order bonus before making him available to everyone as DLC. Today's Injustice 2 trailer also showed off another villain, Brainiac, who appears to be the central antagonist in the story.

Injustice 2 launches on May 16 for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Some of the other playable characters include Harley Quinn, Deadshot, Batman, Superman, Supergirl, Aquaman, Atrocitus, Gorilla Grodd, Blue Beetle, and Wonder Woman.
