Injustice DLC: New Character Coming; No Season Pass 2

With the impending arrival of Martian Manhunter as the fifth downloadable character, the question inevitably turns to what comes next for Injustice: Gods Among Us.

NetherRealm Studios have clearly been committed to a robust downloadable content strategy: going above and beyond their establishing work on Mortal Kombat (2011). [Injustice] is now one character ahead- with a mess of extra costumes, and the freshly minted DLC S.T.A.R. Labs Missions for the original Season Pass four. It will gain at least one more character soon, per a fresh twitter announcement.


Is Black Canary a "BIG" enough reveal?

Concept artwork for classic Justice Leaguer Black Canary got everyone wondering ahead of the Evo character reveal. As we note in our Arrow DLC Giveaway; the CW live-action Green Arrow series will introduce Black Canary in its second season.

The concept art [by artist Bernard Beneteau] shows a variety of adaptations of Black Canary's classic bodysuit and stockings. It must be said, the Canary does make a small cameo in the finished game, but could this be the sign of existing plans for something more? A self-fulfilling prophecy, now that it's out? Who ever it is coming, they're being billed as a ""BIG fan favorite request".

Of course, Black Canary is hardly the only character fans have been speculating about. Rumors of a Dr. Fate playable build resurfaced when Creative Director Ed Boon tweeted a photo with the hero seen on his PC desktop. Fans initiated through cartoons and teen stories have been enticed by Twitter polls featuring Red Hood -- Batman's once dead sidekick, Jason Todd. Zatanna & Powergirl have also been popular, gender conscious rumors. Could all of this be building to another Season Pass? According to Boon -- no.

Whether any of us like it, or are even aware of it, the world of fighting games is changing. The capacity of technology is such that a world of twenty-plus versions of Street Fighter II is not only unacceptable, but wholly unnecessary.

The downloadable revolution will likely change the fighting game in many ways, but for now, Compatibility Packs show us the support process is designed to favour a future that sustains the lifespan of any competitive game like Injustice.

Games like Tekken Revolution and Killer Instinct show us where this is heading. They aren't just dedicating themselves to support of a title and dedication to the post-release refining process -- they're making the title the platform. In other words, instead of relying on the bulk transaction of a disc in a box, they're now offering you the foundation for free, with micro transaction options offering a customizable consumer experience. It's a consumer experience that means instead of a sequel in two years, you could be looking forward to two years of new characters, and tech support.

Mortal Kombat arguably got this ball rolling with a considerate post-game strategy that threw a bone to die hard fans. Injustice is clearly taking the idea a step further, with a more thorough pre-meditated consumer strategy. Even if it's one step closer in design to the traditions of the generation prior, it is the forebear and direct relative of the platform-based concepts of Tekken and Killer Instinct. There almost certainly will be an end to Injustice DLC -- new consoles demand it. To stop at one post-Season Pass character, though? That seems unlikely.

NetherRealm Studios will be giving you an early sneak peek at Martian Manhunter when they launch a live preview stream July 29th (Monday) [full story]. You can submit what will inevitably be one of a Martian tonne of questions via the #NRSStream. Speculate more about future Injustice DLC and the usefulness of another Season Pass on the forums.

Reports confirm 40 S.T.A.R. Labs Missions are now available to download for $1.99, or free to Season Pass holders. Lobo, Batgirl, General Zod & Scorpion each receive 10 playable missions. Discuss this and more on the DC Universe Injustice forum!

RE: Injustice DLC: New Character Coming; No Season Pass 2

After the first season pass selections, I honestly don't mind there not being a second season pass. Don't get me wrong, I've used them all at some point and am happy with Lobo, but 3/4 of that pass was filler. It could've been so much more.

Gotta admit, I'm not a huge fan of Black Canary or Zatanna, so who knows. If its them I might just have to set that one out. Red Hood, just based on who he is, I can't see being anymore than a deathstroke/batman hybrid. That's immediately what struck me when I watched "Under the Red Hood" anyway.

I talk shit now, then NRS makes them look awesome and I'll buy 'em anyway. I r sheep.

RE: Injustice DLC: New Character Coming; No Season Pass 2

No 2nd season pass doesnt bother me as I dont buy much DLC so I would only generally buy characters singly anyway and im not fussed for costumes.
Also not a Black Canary fan at all.

I would love Poison Ivy or Zatanna.

To be fair, I don't remember anyone asking for Batgirl, or being too excited when she was announced.

RE: Injustice DLC: New Character Coming; No Season Pass 2

Or Zod or Scorpion and Lobo was more of a gift for the people that requested him during MKvsDCU. Comparatively he was hardly requested as well. The first four characters were decided and on LONG before any character polls popped up. The characters we get now are supposed to be all fan requested so it's just a question of which fans are they listening to.

Worth noting is I think Boon said there would be no Bat-characters in the second season pass but at this point he was probably saying that because there was no season pass so Red Hood and Ivy are both possibilities I suppose.

I'm fine with this, BUT I will flip my shit if they go and announce one at a later date after I have bought a couple of individual characters.

If you use the term "spam" I have no time for your argument.

I would hope after the disappointment surrounding the first season pass, that they'd avoid any shenanigans like that.

RE: Injustice DLC: New Character Coming; No Season Pass 2

The whole "No season pass" screams to me that WB/NRS budgeted the DLC within the original release of the game (like everyone else) but because ever since the game was announced quite a few characters that weren't in were being screamed at to be in the game. (Martian Manhunter, Black Canary among others)

The DLC characters (exception of Lobo) were not received positively with Batgirl being perhaps the worst received because she was a bat character.

So this is kinda an apology for shitty DLC.

So yeah. I'd love for Power Girl to be in but kinda doubt it at this point.

I'd see Black Canary being in because Biker Blond Bomb in leather with Sindel's banshee specials would be pretty easy to do. (But going by those concepts NRS are determined to screw it up)

As for the other two I would say Villain and Villainess.

If this was a Capcom/BlazBlue developed game I'd say it would be Poison Ivy and she would sit on a moveable throne of roses with lethal vines bursting out of the ground. BUT its not so its going to be like... I dont know. Live Wire probably.

No just because she wasn't the bat character they wanted.

"Just because" you say? let me tell you all the reasons Batgirl was a terrible choice.

-She, unlike Red Hood, was never established as anything BUT a Bat character. She's as basic as it gets and it was obvious they were just itching for a female fighter.
-Her role as "tiny batman" didn't leave a lot of possibilities for moves, and what they came up with wasn't very exciting.
-It was the Barbara Gordon version. Cassandra Cain is in desperate need of some representation, and Stephanie Brown is the real fan favorite Batgirl, instead we got saddled with the worst of the worst, fucking Babs.
-It became worse AFTER she was released because her moveset was essentially everything a scrub could want. Hell, if I went on Injustice online RIGHT NOW, I could guarantee that at least 50% of the Batgirls there would either cartwheel nonstop, or batarang/teleport spam (and then quit when continually punished).

Batgirl was never a good choice and in my eyes never will be. There's just too much wrong with everything about her. Red Hood or Azrael, on the other hand, are established enough outside of the Bat Family and are distinct enough in terms of their abilities to at least have playstyles that aren't too similar to Batman.

You guys, chill.

Vash is pretty much right.

You just need to bolt on: And there are too many bat characters anyway.

Dont get me wrong: Batman, Joker, Catwoman, Harley are all pretty much yes. But you look at that roster it just feels that we could have got away with not having Nightwing. Grundy is pretty much an everyone hates him guy.

I guess if the roster was 32 characters pre DLC; Batgirl would have been cool. I mean they did give her some good lines but thats about it.

I can agree with this. In terms of gameplay, he's more or less gonna be a hybrid of deathstroke/batman. In terms of roster diversity(which seems to be such a huge issue amongst this community), he has STRONG ties to batman. You can say he's moved beyond it, and he has, but at his very foundation he's a bat character. You can't say "No bat characters" and then demand a bat character....its against the rules haha.

I disagree with both of you. Personally, I didn't think Zod or Batgirl had much to offer, but(gameplay wise)they're both better than I thought.
As far as Red Hood goes, he fits in perfectly with this game. Speed, agility, knife attacks, machine guns, and deadly as anyone else on the menu. I liked him more as a villain than the new 52, but either way he's worth having.
In the past 25 years Jason has endured some serious pain, he's only been recently getting recognized. The "unofficial" poll speaks for itself.
