Swamp Thing Added to Injustice 2’s Roster

In the latest IGN First character reveal today, Swamp Thing was confirmed for Injustice 2. During the 90-second gameplay video, you can see Swamp Thing use a wide array of moves, fight Robin and Atrocitus, and more.

Swamp Thing joins Black Canary, Robin, Brainiac, Poison Ivy, Bane, Batman, Blue Beetle, The Flash, Harley Quinn, Superman, Supergirl, Wonder Woman, Deadshot, Gorilla Grodd, Aquaman, and Atrocitus on the Injustice 2 roster. Expect more character reveals in the weeks leading up to launch.

As part of an article on IGN last week, NetherRealm said walk-speeds in Injustice 2 are “globally… much faster for all characters.” Additionally, they confirmed that you’ll be able to block many environmental attacks in the sequel, but “something huge with a lot of startup, like slamming a car down would be still be unblockable.”

Here’s some more Injustice 2 gameplay videos:

Injustice 2 releases the week of May 16 for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. A beta is currently being held, and NetherRealm is continually sending out more codes to those who signed up.
