We’re a mere 28 days away from the release of Injustice 2, so NetherRealm Studios’ hype train is continuing at full speed ahead. While we’ve recently seen the official gameplay trailer for the Society’s Poison Ivy–who will be the recipient of a full character breakdown alongside Catwoman and a third yet-to-be-named character, on the next Watchtower livestream sometime this week–we do have a concrete release date on the next piece of content: specifically the next Shattered Alliances story trailer.

The final chapter, focusing on Brainiac, will be released this Thursday according to the Injsutice Twitter account. While we’ve seen a few in-game screenshots of the character, after he was unveiled as the narrator of “The Lines Redrawn” trailer, in addition to being the game’s new lead antagonist (and likely final boss), we haven’t seen any form of gameplay from the Collector of Worlds. This trailer will hopefully provide us with a taste, along with a larger look at his role within the game’s Story Mode, as the battle for power between the Insurgency, Regime and Society rages on. You can see the official tweet below, along with a new piece of artwork for Brainiac.
