When NetherRealm Studios unveiled the Fighter Pack 2 DLC pack a couple months back, folks were surprised to see the rock-fisted Hellboy. The pack’s paid off pretty well over the past couple of months, and now it’s Hellboy’s turn.
NetherRealm has come through and given us a first look at the hellish hero in action, and he didn’t disappoint.
Hellboy looks like quite a powerhouse in Injustice 2. Not only can he level enemies with direct punches from his rock fist, but he has plenty of one-liners and wise cracks to throw at his opponent as well.
His super move is brutal. In a flaming descent into Hell, Hellboy gives his foe a face full of fist -- a few times -- before finishing them off with a sweeping blow with a freaking axe. It's pretty short, but it's sweet.
This guy is definitely a powerhouse, and even the strongest opponents in Injustice 2 – like Swamp Thing and Black Manta – will have their work cut out for them.
As noted in the trailer, we can expect Hellboy to make his debut in November, though a specific date wasn’t given just yet. More than likely, he’ll arrive earlier in the months, just as Raiden did.
And that leaves a very interesting question: when will we see fighters revealed in the forthcoming Fighter Pack 3 DLC? We’ve already speculated who could be added to the third pack in the game, but here’s a quick rundown of who we expect.
Constantine/Rorschach – One of the next characters wears a trench coat, so it could either be the supernatural detective Constantine, or the mysterious (yet strong) Rorschach from the Watchmen series.
Enchantress – We’ve already seen a number of Suicide Squad members introduced to the game, so why not add one more? We’ve already seen hints that a new female character will join the party, so our bets are on this vixen.
Atom – The final entrant is definitely pint-sized, based on early silhouettes we’ve seen, and there’s only one character that fits that mold: The Atom. And more than likely, he’ll bring shrinking/enlarging into his fighting techniques.
We’ll see what’s revealed later this month for Injustice 2.
The game is available now for Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
