Starfire's going to join the Injustice 2 roster a lot sooner than you might think.
NetherRealm Studios had a live stream set for a little later today to introduce some gameplay from its latest DLC character, Starfire, as well as revealing a release date of when she would arrive. However, thanks to this reveal from the PlayStation Blog, we already know when she's arriving.
According to the blog entry, Starfire is set to make her debut in Injustice 2 tomorrow. It's unknown if that's both for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One since the news was posted on a PlayStation page, but we assume that's the case.
The character will be available for Season Pass holders only, but it's not too late for you to make a purchase so you can get a week's early access to her. Everyone else will have to wait until August 15th to put up your dukes with the super-powered hero. She'll cost $5.99 to purchase on her own, if you, again, don't have access to the Season Pass or the Ultimate Edition of the game.
In case you need a reminder of who Starfire is, PlayStation Blog provided the following description:
As the next Queen of Tamaran, Princess Koriand'r found herself the victim of her fratricidal sister's vengeful plot that resulted in their planet being conquered. Now a royal exile on Earth, Koriand'r uses her ability to absorb and convert ultraviolet energy as Starfire.
Starfire stands as the final entry in the first three-pack of downloadable fighters for the game, joining the likes of Sub-Zero, who was released last month; and Red Hood, who came out in June. And you know what that means – news is imminent on the next three pack of fighters, and we could very well get a glimpse during today's live stream!
We'll let you know what's shown off during today's stream, which will take place starting at 4 PM EDT on NetherRealm's Twitch channel. Be sure to check back to see what she's made of – and who could possibly be coming around the corner.
Injustice 2 is available now for Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
