The Injustice 2 Fighter Pack 2 reveal is coming soon
It was announced earlier this month that NetherRealm were planning a big surprise for fans during Gamescom 2017.
This has now been confirmed as the Injustice 2 Fighter Pack 2 reveal, which will confirm the next batch of DLC characters coming to PS4 and Xbox One.
All three characters will be unveiled during a Charity livestream on Wednesday, August 23.
And the official countdown can begin, with less than a day to go before the big reveal.
For those interested in tuning in, times will vary greatly from the usual Watchtower setup.
This is because it’s all being held at Gamescom, meaning fans in North America will need to stay up late.
The stream is scheduled to begin at 3am PST – 6am ET – 11am BST and will include the first look at the new characters coming to the game.
There will also be a Celebrity Charity Competition between DJs Steve Aoki and Don Diablo, with the two will facing off in a best-of-five contest.
The stream will be hosted on the NetherRealm’s Twitch channel, which can be found below.
Both the Black Manta and The Atom have been hinted at in recent months and could well be part of the reveal tomorrow.
The fourth fighter being added to the game looks to be Black Manta, following a Reddit user posting an image from the Xbox Store earlier this year.
A tagline from the screenshot advertises playing as Black Manta in Injustice 2, which would fit in nicely with recent reports suggesting just that.
There’s also been suggestions that another Mortal Kombat fighter could be released into Injustice 2, although this hasn’t been officially confirmed.
The latest DLC character to be added to the game was Starfire, who made her debut earlier this month.
The NetherRealm’s development team have cautioned that Starfire is a beginners character, meaning she has a smaller moveset.
The design of Starfire is also meant to make pulling off combos more straightforward, as well as using her energy weapons and spin attacks.
You can find official DC descriptions of Black Manta and The Atom below:
Black Manta: “A ruthless treasure hunter and mercenary, the man known as Black Manta spent his days scavenging the unexplored depths of the ocean, discovering long lost relics and powerful mythical items, all while taking on various jobs to fund his passion. Until one particular job changed his life.
“Hired to bring back a sample of Arthur Curry’s blood, Black Manta encountered the young Aquaman and his father while the two were out at sea. In the ensuing struggle, Aquaman’s father suffered a heart attack that ultimately led to his death.
“Seeking revenge, Aquaman hunted down Black Manta—and accidentally killed his father in retaliation. Thus began a circle of vengeance that forever bonded hero and villain.”
The Atom: “A gifted physicist, Dr. Ray Palmer put his genius mind to good use by laboring tirelessly to help create a better world. His hard work led to advancements in matter compression and the discovery of white-dwarf star remnants on Earth. Creating a specialized, size-changing belt that houses a lens filled with star matter, Ray has the ability to shrink his size down to subatomic levels.
“This unique power inspired his heroic moniker and allows the Atom to handle things most other heroes can’t even see: viruses, parasites, nuclear reactions and beyond. Using phone, fiber-optic cables and even the bloodstreams of other heroes and villains, Ray can get wherever he needs to be at incredible speeds.”
