We've been hyping the Fighter Pack 2 DLC for Injustice 2 for quite a few weeks now, as it brings several key additions to the roster, including the surprising debut of Hellboy, along with Raiden from Mortal Kombat and the long-awaited arrival of Black Manta. Good news – you'll be able to get one of these guys starting today.
Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, alongside Netherrealm Studios, has confirmed that the jaded aquatic villain has joined the roster of Injustice 2's warriors, and those that have purchased the Fighter Pack 2 can download him now on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
"Today Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and DC Entertainment revealed gameplay for Black Manta in Injustice 2, the first Fighter Pack 2 character who will join the Injustice 2 roster on September 12. Archnemesis to Aquaman and sworn enemy of the sea, Black Manta proves that his brilliant intellect, armored battle suit, energy beams and array of powerful weapons are more than enough to make him a worthy opponent for the king of Atlantis, as well as the other Injustice 2 Super Heroes and Super-Villains," the team confirmed in a press statement.
Release dates haven't been given for the rest of the Fighter Pack 2 crew yet, but we should see one fighter debut in October (more than likely Raiden), and the third following in November. After that, we'll be likely getting details on Fighter Pack 3, and the three remaining fighters that will be joining the ranks of Injustice 2. We'll likely see those announcements sometime in October, or maybe sooner.
For now, though, you can enjoy everything that Black Manta has to offer. We posted his ending, stage and shaders in a post yesterday, and you can check out this gameplay as well, which features a lot of great moves in his arsenal. And here we thought Aquaman was going to have all the aquatic fun in this game…
You can download Black Manta now, and we'll bring you news on the other characters and when they'll be coming to the game soon enough.
Injustice 2 is available now for Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
