The moment Injustice 2 arrived, things began to change in the video game industry. Fans and critics alike have witnessed an impressive gameplay that no other fighting titles of recent memory could offer. Without a doubt, the sequel has reached a new kind of level.
Now, developer NetherRealms Studios is set to introduce the much-awaited fighter in Injustice 2 named Sub-Zero, as reported by ScreenRant. This character is a veteran from the Mortal Kombat canon and is famous for using ice. The video game company also revealed the exact date for when the new character should arrive.
According to GameSpot, the fans of the hit fighting-themed game can expect the aforementioned character to arrive on July 11. It was the game's very own creative director Ed Boon who announced via Twitter. Interestingly, he made the big reveal a bit interesting with a reference from HBO's titular TVs show Game of Thrones. "Winter is coming... in July," the tweet read.
Sub-Zero was first revealed as an upcoming Injustice 2 character sometime in May. His arrival will also mean the inclusion of Starfire and Red Hood. The latter, in particular, was already introduced by NetheRealm Studios early this month and can be purchased for $6. For players who desire to acquire all three characters at once, they just need a cash worth of $20. These fighters will arrive as a bundle in the so-called Fight Pack 1 DLC.
In related Injustice 2 news, publisher Warner Bros. announced an update on a tournament, which will be held in Canada. This tournament will be called Injustice 2 Battleground Series. This is open to all interested players in the Great White North, with the chance to win amazing prizes. The company also revealed that they will partner with Cineplex in order to bring the forthcoming tournament into the big screen. This is definitely something to look forward to.
