A new story trailer for Injustice: Gods Among Us has been released, showing us the reason why all of these DC titans are trouncing each other.

As we can see from the video below, Metropolis is in ruins after the Justice League failed to stop the Joker from blowing up a bomb. A rift seems to form between the members of the JLA and the mighty heroes go to war with each other due to differing ideologies. We see Batman teaming up with villains like Harley Quinn and her beloved Joker.

It's definitely cool to see the motivations behind the characters, even in this brief look, because it makes seeing Batman go up against the Man of Steel all the more interesting.

A Collector's Edition is shown at the end of the trailer. It includes the following bonuses for fans to drool over:

  • Injustice: Gods Among Us video game
  • Exclusive 12" figurine statue featuring Batman and Wonder Woman
  • Official DC Comic Book “Injustice: Gods Among Us” details the events leading up to Injustice: Gods Among Us video game
  • 3 exclusive skins based on Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman from DC COMICS – THE NEW 52
  • Digital download copy of DOOM: JUSTICE LEAGUE movie
You can find out more about this beefy special edition here and pre-order it for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. The game will be released on April 16th, 2013. Until then, watch the trailer and commence the drooling.
