Those crazy guys at NetherRealm Studios dropped some gameplay demo of their upcoming DC fighting game, Injustice: Gods Among Us.
It’s a little bit draggy in bits, but you’ll find that there’s a whole bunch to be excited about for this game – well, for me it’s mainly the amazing environments. Environmental interaction isn’t anything new, but they’ve done some crazy stuff here, where different types of characters will use the environment differently, depending on whether they’re a power character or gadget character. That, and how the various environments are connected. Dead or Alive and Mortal Kombat 3 had the whole “knock you off a ledge or into a wall” thing, but that was usually a one-direction change. In this, you can knock someone off a ledge and into another playing field, and then knock them into an elevator and back up to the original playing field. Nice!
The game’s not due out till 2013, so keep waiting a bit longer!
