What if our greatest heroes became our greatest threat? Injustice: Gods Among Us introduces a bold new franchise to the fighting game genre from NetherRealm Studios, creators of the definitive fighting game Mortal Kombat. The DC Universe has been well and truly smashed open in this beat em’ up. Warner Bros. and GAME are giving you chance to answer the age old question of ‘Who would win in a fight – Batman or Superman in their nationwide tournament. Check out the trailer below (if you want to BUT I strongly recommend you do).
Eight UK heats are being held at GAME stores nationwide during after-hours lock in events. Check out the table below for more details.

The winners of these heats will come together in a massive tournament at Warner Bros. Studios’ London HQ where the champion will walk away with their own Injustice Gaming Machine and the International Winner’s Belt. At the moment there are only 8 machines built for Injustice in existence all of which are touring around the world at gaming exhibitions like iSeries and a similar event in Denmark (possibly Dreamhack). For the time being the machines are running an early development version of the game but the winner will receive their own brand-new, fresh out-of-the-box machine with a full dev. version of the game.
However,it has been made clear that there are no ‘losers’ in this tournament and nobody walks away empty handed. All competitors receive an Injustice: Gods Among Us goodie bad (awwwww isn’t that nice). The UK heat winners will walk away with a limited edition Injustice: Gods Among Us Fight Stick, a DC character Bobble-Head, gaming headset and a weekend ticket to the Multiplay i49 event. Runners up will win a copy of the Red Son Special Edition of Injustice: Gods Among Us on Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3. Moving on, the winner of the UK heat wins not only a collector’s edition copy of the game but also a 40″ SMART TV, a PS Vita and The Injustice: Gods Among Us UK Tournament Winner’s Belt to show the grandkids. Finalists are expected from other countries including Russia and France (not the US) making this a truly international competition.
There are 32 places available at each store heat. These are limited so once they’re gone, they’re gone. You can save your place in the normal ways by sending a tweet to your preferred store or sending them a tweet. You can also send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Injustice: Gods Among Us is available from 19th April on the Xbox 360, PS3 and Wii U (Not necessarily from GAME).
