Injustice 2 will be getting some more DLC fighters, and the three of them will be revealed at Gamescom. The fighting game’s Fighter Pack 2 reveal will be during the Injustice 2 Celebrity Charity livestream, happening August 23 at 5:00 AM CDT, or 3:00 AM PDT. The livestream will feature Ron Diablo and Steve Aoki as guests.

The first Injustice 2 Fighter Pack contained Starfire, Sub-Zero, and Red Hood, and it’s anyone’s guess of who might be revealed for this new pack.

In the meantime, though, go ahead and read our Injustice 2 review:

Injustice 2 looks phenomenal. It’s very hard to believe that this is the Unreal Engine 3. Yet when you think about it, an engine as mature as this is perfect for a fighting game. It runs at a locked 60 frames-per-second, which is crucial in any game that has you checking on the number of frames you have to cancel or counter a move. Cutscenes appear to have some sort of filter or post-processing applied, which makes for a slight downgrade to character models when transitioning into a fight. The effect is subtle, however, and isn’t cause for alarm. Injustice 2 is still leagues ahead in terms of fidelity compared to Gods Among Us.

If you’ve played a NetherRealm game within the last couple of years, then you know that they have been consistently stepping up their cinematic storytelling capabilities. Right off the bat, Injustice 2 shows just how far they have come. The story takes place some time after the events of the first game in the alternate universe where Superman had turned to questionable morals, and centers around Batman fighting off various threats to Earth while attempting to keep Superman locked up. It’s wildly entertaining, and if you’re a hardcore DC fan, then you’re in for a treat with all the cameos and references.

Which characters do you think will make it into Fighter Pack 2?
