Injustice 2 Will Probably Get Ten DLC Characters; Paid Gear Unlock System May Be Implemented


NetherRealm Studios’ upcoming Injustice 2 may get up to ten DLC characters after launch.

Its predecessor, Injustice: Gods Among Us, got six DLC fighters in total; Batgirl, General Zod, Lobo, Martian Manhunter, Scorpion and Zatanna. Speaking with IGN, Creative Director Ed Boon discussed the possibility of ten additional characters being added to Injustice 2 after launch.

“One of the things we’ve been doing, trying to do more and more with every game… is to support it for a longer period of time. With DLC characters, we’ve had four with Mortal Kombat, six with Injustice, eight with Mortal Kombat X, and with Injustice 2 we plan on continuing that pattern.”

He also talked about players that don’t have the time and wouldn’t “want to invest months and months of their time” just to acquire the best and unique gear for their favorite fighter. That’s why they are probably going to allow you to buy them via a paid unlock system.

However, this is still just a possibility and “the whole purpose of this feature is customization, longevity, and ongoing molding of your character so to speak.”
