The wait is over! Deathstroke is officially coming to Injustice: Gods Among Us and he's bringing an indescriminate world of hurt to the rest of the cast of heroes and villains!

It looks like Deathstroke will have an appropriately massive arsenal of weapons to call upon as he slices, dices and terminates his way through the DC fighter. He'll be doing all this in duds most reminiscent of the current DC Comics "New 52" design -- a style that as yet hasn't been the standard for the NetherRealm Studios designed characters.

Gamespot have the first trailer [embedded above], showcasing The Terminator's sword wielding, gun toting return to fighting games. Deathstroke is a familiar character for NRS, having featured in 2008's Mortal Kombat versus DC Universe crossover.

The assassin will have a chance to rekindle old feuds with a wide variety of perfect opponents, not the least of which is Green Arrow. The emerald archer may be getting all the press with the rivalry spilling over into TV's Arrow, but fans of the classics will also have fresh fighting fun to be had with the likes of and Nightwing! Deathstroke (aka; Slade Wilson) began comic book life as an arch-nemesis to the Teen Titans.

Injustice: Gods Among Us arrives on the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and Nintendo WiiU in April 2013. Discuss all the developments on the DC Universe Injustice forum.
