Two DC Comics heroes and a Mortal Kombat mainstay round out the initial volley of Injustice 2 DLC fighters.
In terms of characters, this fighting game sequel will pack a lot more than who’s on the roster already. Of course, you probably knew that already, since it’s fairly common procedure for Warner Bros and developer NetherRealm to load up on downloadables for their fighting games. Both MKX and the original Injustice were heavy with add-ons after all.
For Injustice’s sequel, things start out with a pretty decent bang. Personally, I’m not floored by any of the fighters in the first wave of DLC, but they’re not at all bad picks either. This first pack includes Jason Todd himself, the Red Hood, as well as Starfire and MK’s own Sub-Zero.
The trio won’t be available till after the game’s release, since they’re all still being worked on according to the developer. Just how far after release, we don’t know just yet. Presumably, the pack will be available separately, but it’ll also be in both the Digital Deluxe and the Ultimate Edition of the game.
Here’s how those beefier editions shake out:
The Injustice 2 Ultimate Edition will include a total of nine playable characters; three Premiere Skins that transform select fighters into alternate characters with new looks, voices and dialogue; and two exclusive new Gear Shaders that enable players to customize the look of their roster with alternate color themes. The Injustice 2 Ultimate Edition is available for pre-order now for $99.99.
The Injustice 2 Digital Deluxe Edition will include Red Hood, Starfire and Sub-Zero as playable characters; a Premiere Skin and an exclusive Gear Shader. The Injustice 2 Digital Deluxe Edition is now available for pre-order via PSN and the Xbox Store for $79.99.
