Calling all gamers! DC Entertainment announced today it will release a new digital comic based on “Infinite Crisis” – the upcoming free-to-play MOBA PC game based in the DC Multiverse from Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and developed by Turbine. INFINITE CRISIS will join DC Entertainment’s digital-first line-up in May and will be released on a weekly basis digitally and collected monthly in print starting in July. The series will be written by Dan Abnett (LEGION OF SUPER-HEROES, GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY) and a team of artists which will include Christian Duce (BATMAN: ARKHAM ORIGINS).
The INFINITE CRISIS comic takes place before the start of the videogame, before the Crisis kicks into high gear and all of the heroes and villains are recruited by The Monitor to serve as Champions and battle against unseen enemies to save the Multiverse. As in the game, characters from alternate DC Universes will be joining forces to try and stop the approaching Crisis. Prime Earth Batman will join forces with the likes of Gaslight Catwoman, Arcane Green Lantern, Atomic Wonder Woman and Nightmare Robin. In addition to the infinite characters from the video game, Harbinger has been redesigned for the comic book series and will join an all new character, Atomic Two-Face, in the action.
Developed by Turbine, “Infinite Crisis” delivers a heart-pounding competitive player vs. player battle experience set in DC Comics’ legendary Multiverse and puts players in control of beloved heroes in twisted incarnations, such as Gaslight Batman and Atomic Wonder Woman, playing in league with well-known characters including Superman, The Joker, Green Lantern and The Flash.
Stay tuned for more details on the series including the official launch date!
