No Brainiac for you! Injustice 2 free trial weekend starts today

More On: Injustice 2

Injustice 2, NetherRealm Studios’ popular DC Entertainment-based fighting game, is entering a free trial weekend today on consoles. Players will be able to try Chapters 1-3 of the Story, and have a go at the complete multiplayer component. All of the base characters will be available, except Brainiac.  Why not Brainiac? I guess NetherRealm figures ‘why buy the cow, when you get that sweet Brainiac milk for free?’ Gotta hold something back to get people to buy the game. So...let them have everyone, but not...let's say Brainiac. Sure, that's the ticket.

Injustice 2 will be on sale for the duration of the trial, which ends Dec. 18th  (if you can't handle it, and you just have to try Brainiac). The game seems pretty cool, and was a hit with Gamingnexus when we reviewed it, and our John Yan confirmed that today when he reviewed the PC port. I’m thinking that I will dip in and check it out a bit this weekend. I didn’t play a ton of the first one, but the loot system has me intrigued. NetherRealm has also kept up a pretty dope lineup of DLC characters, including Red Hood, Sub-Zero, Starfire, Black Manta, Raiden, Hellboy and The Atom. It’s been a few years since I’ve engaged fully with a fighting game, and maybe this is the one to pull me back in. Now, if only I could play with Brainiac…
