News of Fighter Pack 2 is coming next week at Gamescom! The second trio of Injustice 2 DLC characters will be a feature of a special stream during Day 2 of the event, August 23rd!

The release of Starfire early this month concluded the first wave of add-on characters, following June's Red Hood, and July guest kombatant: Sub-Zero.

Ed Boon shared a teaser image for FP2 via Twitter [above], revealing only a dimly lit scene of urban damage, and a sliver of purple clad appendage. Foreground rubble slightly reminiscent of Solomon Grundy obscures the featured figure, whose purple and flesh tone evokes Starfire, or somebody new.

A spear planted in the wreckage could link to various offending characters, including DLC possibilities: Fatality, Circe, Hawkman, or Black Manta. The latter was seemingly confirmed in an Xbox Marketplace update published in July.

The existence of six further characters was teased in the first Fighter Pack 1 reveal trailer, where stand-out silhouettes all but announced Mortal Kombat's Raiden, and Black Manta. Further in-game teaser shadows supported these conclusions, along with diminutive Justice League hero: Atom. Speculation over the remaining figures has been wild and varied, to include: purple wearing Huntress, magic menace Enchantress, hooded zealot Azrael, and returning god of war Ares.

Answers will come during the live stream reveal, which is also set to feature an exhibition bout between electronic music producers Steve Aoki and Don Diablo. The action will commence 11:00am EST via the NetherRealm Twitch stream.
