A new trailer for Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and NetherRealm Studios’ Injustice 2 has been released featuring the introduction of the classic Mortal Kombat character Sub-Zero to the DC Universe fighting game.
Here is the official character description, via the Injustice 2 website:
“Sub-Zero is a lethal cryomancer and leader of the reformed Lin Kuei clan. When Sub-Zero was younger, the Lin Kuei were corrupted and destroyed from within, staining their honor. Now serving as Grandmaster, Sub-Zero vows to redeem that honor, pledging to defend the realm from threats near, far, and beyond. In the intergalactic menace Brainiac, Sub-Zero sees a threat to all worlds, and perhaps his greatest opportunity for redemption yet.”
Here is the Sub-Zero trailer:
Sub-Zero will be included in the upcoming DLC pack Fighter Pack 1, which will also include the Red Hood and Starfire of Teen Titans fame. No official releast date for the DLC pack has been announced, but it is expected to drop sometime in July. If you already own the Digital Deluxe Edition or the Ultimate Edition of Injustice 2, then it’s simply a matter of downloading the content, but owners of the regular edition can still purchase the Fighter Pack 1 DLC.
I’ve never been a big fan of fighting games, but Mortal Kombat was always the exception, which is why adding DC Comics character to that type of gaming experience was the perfect marraige for me. Just as I loved getting to play as Scorpion (my favorite Mortal Kombat character) in Injustice: Gods Among Us, I’m excited to play as Sub-Zero against the likes of Batman, Wonder Woman, Superman, Supergirl and the rest of the DC Universe.
“Injustice 2 is the super-powered sequel to the hit game Injustice: Gods Among Us that allows players to build and power up the ultimate version of their favorite DC characters. Featuring a massive selection of DC Super Heroes and Super-Villains, players can personalize iconic DC characters with unique and powerful gear earned throughout the game. Additionally, for the first time, gamers can take control of how their characters look, fight and develop across a variety of game modes.”
Injustice 2 is now available for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Android and iOS mobile platforms.
5 Villains Perfect For Future ‘Injustice’ Games
DC created a home-run franchise when they released the first Injustice game. After a successful game and two popular tie-in comic series, Injustice 2 finally comes out on May 16th. With all eyes searching for Easter eggs and hints about the new game, it’s a good time to talk about future games. Let’s face it, this is too popular of a franchise for DC to let die. There have been over ten Mortal Kombat games, so strap in and get ready for an unjust future.
Superman was a great antagonist for the first game and I’m excited for Brainiac to finally get a moment in the spotlight in Injustice 2, but DC’s going to have to think bigger for future sequels.
