Injustice: Gods Among Us is mere weeks away, but fans will get a hands-on preview starting April 2! A free demo is coming to the comfort of your own home via PlayStation Network and Xbox LIVE Marketplace!

Update Apr. 2: Contrary to prior information, the Injustice demo has already gone live on XBL! It is now also available in the United States PSN store. Share your impressions on the forum!

The demo will deliver a pared down preview featuring Batman, Wonder Woman & Lex Luthor as fully playable fighters in the Gotham City arena!

With any luck, the demo-specific build should mean smaller and quicker downloads than NetherRealm Studios' 2011 Mortal Kombat preview [more], which resulted in mass content leaks.

According to the Injustice Facebook; the free demo will debut April 2nd via PlayStation Network US before hitting European and Xbox LIVE Marketplace and European PSN, April 3rd.

Fans eager to get some Injustice into their Xbox can hit up the LIVE Marketplace where an extensive range of Gods Among Us themed avatar accessories are now available [full story}. Injustice: Gods Among Us hits home consoles (inc. Nintendo Wii U) April 16. Be sure to share your demo experience with the MKOmmunity on the DC Universe Injustice forum!
