By Ishaan . March 6, 2013 . 12:30am

Injustice: Gods Among Us will have exclusive content if you pre-order it from GameStop in North America or GAME in the U.K.—NetherRealm have created a pack of 20 missions for the game, based on the Red Son alternate universe in DC Comics, which depicts a Superman if he’d landed in Russia instead of Smallville.

 

 

Along with the missions, Red Son costumes have been created for Superman, Wonder Woman and Solomon Grundy. You can watch the game’s developers discuss the Red Son content in the video above.

 

Injustice: Gods Among Us will be released in April for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and Wii U.

    And yet, no Red Son Batman?

    • Nightmesh

      XD It’s funny becuase I just got done reading a comment that made fun of the fact that if one character in this game got something batman should get it too mindset most people including I sadly have. Though I have a real hard time imagining it. Story wise.

      • Dexward

        Well, I should have added no Red Son Green Lantern too.

        • maggosh

          That’s reserved. Any red Green Lantern is Bacon Man.

        Batman was in the Red Son storyline though. He was an anti-Stalin activist whose parents were killed by Pyotr Roslov, Stalin’s illegitimate son and the Red Son version of Clark’s friend, Pete Ross. Check out Superman: Red Son sometime. It’s really good. You can get it on Comixology or buy the book from Amazon or B&N.

    Hopefully for the PS3 version, we get Cole from inFamous to appear as a fighter. Just like what they did for Kratos in Mortal Kombat.

      Cole already got his chance in that awful street fighter X tekken game.It’s funny how you never see him though.

      • HassanJamal

        Yeah, that was an odd place to put Cole. But this is a superhero game. PS3 has a superhero game of its own. This games make more sense to have him in than SFxT.

        • http://www.facebook.com/ren.mojito Ren Mojito

          I won’t lie and say i know everything about Infamous,i only know a little. Is cole a superhero?As far as i can tell the player has the choice in making him a good or badguy..so im not sure he would fit this team either.PLUS he already has another cameo in the “fighting game” playstation all-stars XD let someone else have a turn please!

          He sorta also has two cameo’s aswell as being the only character(series) to have two reps.

          • HassanJamal

            Well, because of the player choice, Cole can be either a hero or a villain. Thus why SP wanted 2 Coles in PSASBR.

            Theres nothing wrong with having more cameos than other PS characters. Besides, this could help increase exposure of the InFamous series before InFamous: Second Son.

          • http://www.facebook.com/ren.mojito Ren Mojito

            I never said it was a bad thing and you do bring u a good point about the 2nd son thing.But i think they have enough exposure with the fact that the trailer was part of the playstation 4 reveal.

          • HassanJamal

            More exposure is never a bad thing ;D Also, WB has done ps3 exclusive stuff for quite a while. The Joker mission in Arkham Asylum, Kratos in MK and now, as a huge fan of inFamous, Im hoping Cole McGrath will appear in injustice :D

          • http://www.facebook.com/ren.mojito Ren Mojito

            Actually too much exposure is a bad thing,we call it over exposure or force feeding.You should just wait till the second son thingy comes out.

            I’m not saying you shouldn’t hope for some sort of cameo! But..being realistic it does not make any sense nor does the chances seem high..I just don’t want you to feel crushed >_<

          • http://www.facebook.com/dionte.s.thomas Dionte Snorlax Thomas

            i dont really want cole ether but if not cole then who would be in the game cole seems like the best choice

          • http://www.facebook.com/ren.mojito Ren Mojito

            Well from a biased look i would pick spiderman since he’s an actual hero,known by many,and one of my favorites.(he still doesn’t need this cameo either). From an unbiased look i would say some shooters character that all the kids play nowadays(masterchief or some cod guy? but that would be just stupid)

            So how about instead of a cameo make it an actual DC fighter and add someone like the blue beetle or perhaps raven/starfire to add to the teen titans portion of the game….lol and lessen a tad of the batman that way.

          • Mister_Nep

            Infamous would be a good fit for a few reasons. The biggest being that Cole had a short 6 comic series published by DC themselves. Aside from that Infamous was somewhat inspired by comics as well. You can tell by the setting, and the fact that there were comic style cutscenes in the game.

            So Cole is already a walking comic book hero. Although I’d probably be more interested in seeing the new character from Second Son. Even if he’s just barebones with no story I’d like to see him present in this game.

  • Göran Isacson

    So one will have both the skin, and a sort of AU-story with Red Son superman in it? That’s kinda neat, actually. A nice little fanservice bonus.

  • Sergio Briceño

    Seeing as how much time has passed since MK (and they sure have gotten better at developing for portables), I hope this gets ported to Vita eventually, with all additional content included. Still going to get the console version because it’s the only one we got so far, but just think about, challenging fellow DC fans on the streets… Make it happen Warner Bros.

  • http://www.facebook.com/dionte.s.thomas Dionte Snorlax Thomas

    i would have choose red son batman over grundy seeing how red son batman look hilarious

      He always had that demented grin on his face. I think that was part of it.

  • Learii

    is there Doomday in the game? i remember i read somewhere he is

    • http://www.siliconera.com/ Ishaan

      He was in one of the trailers, but there’s been no confirmation as to whether he’s playable or not, to my knowledge.

  • Robert Hendrie

    Glad Ebgames Canada is getting the pre order bonus. Since Eb and Gamestop became sister companies in Canada and closed or converted all or 99% of Gamestop’s into Eb’s some pre order bonus have been lost in the shuffle
