Developer NeatherRealm Studios has recently announced the set of characters for Injustice 2 Fighter Pack 2 during its Celebrity Charity Competition at Gamescom 2017.
Announced in a new trailer were Hellboy, Black Manta, and Raiden. Black Manta and Raiden’s reveal isn’t surprising after the accidental silhouette leak on the character selection menu, which clearly outlined the figure of both characters. However, no one expected Hellboy’s addition considering the half-demon superhero is part of the Dark Horse Comics. Nonetheless, Hellboy topped NeartherRealm’s popularity polls for best guest character additions in Injustice 2 alongside Spawn and The Terminator.
Black Manta is the first character scheduled for Injustice 2 Fighter Pack 2 and will be released at an unspecified date in September. Gameplay preview for Black Manta will also be shown August 27 on the developer’s Twitch channel.
No release window was announced for Hellboy and Raiden, but it’s likely NeatherRealm will follow the same release pattern of Fighter Pack 1, with one character spread across different months. The Fighter Pack 1 had Red Hood (June), Sub-Zero (July), and Starfire (August).
Only three more unannounced characters remain following the reveal of Injustice 2 Fighter Pack 2. At present, gamers can only speculate on the remaining DLC characters based on the leaked silhouettes. Highly predicted is Atom due to the character's extremely small silhouette. Enchantress from the Suicide Squad film could also be part of the Injustice 2 Fighter Pack 3 lineup.
Injustice 2 is currently available for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. Except for the pre-order bonus character, Darkseid, all character additions are available for those who purchased either the season pass or the Injustice 2 Ultimate Edition. The DLC characters can also be bought separately once available.
Update Note: The Trailer has been updated with the new one that has ESRB rating and an updated time for the Black Manta gameplay reveal
