    How To Unlock Characters In Injustice 2

    Developer NetherRealm Studios has confirmed 10 more — than the out-of-the-gate playable 28 characters — will be made available in Injustice 2 individually for $40 OR as a set through paid downloadable content titled “Injustice 2 Fighter Pack 1” / “Injustice 2 Deluxe Edition” to get the first 3 DLC characters (excluding the pre-order bonus Darkseid), or as part of the Season Pass DLC in the “Injustice 2 Ultimate Pack” / “Injustice 2 Ultimate Edition” for all 9 in 2017 (again, excluding the pre-order bonus Darkseid, unless you bought it before launch). These sets get you 3 or 9 DLC characters, which is $20 or $40 extra on PlayStation Network / Xbox Live.

    The first four of ten DLC characters (adding up to make the fighting game’s total: 32 characters) will be available after the game’s launch week, at some point in the months after May 16th.

    To unlock these downloadable new characters, you have to either meet their unlock requirements or for some buy the Ultimate Pack “Season Pass” and download each of the nine characters once they are made available. Then they will appear as part of your character select screen roster. These character release dates are to be determined, so we’ll keep you updated on this page with announcements.


    • Unlockable Character #1: Brainiac

      How To Unlock: Brainiac has been confirmed as the only in-game unlockable character.
      Unlock Brainiac by completing story mode, or if you’re in a hurry by buying him from the character select screen (that leads to the Xbox Store or PlayStation Store) to unlock with $6 of your real money.

    Here’s a video that introduces Brainiac and shows he fits right in with this game’s roster:

    Brainiac is a megalomaniacal genius who roams the universe, collecting knowledge to increase his intellectual and scientific prowess. Obsessed with establishing his superiority, Brainiac captured Krypton’s greatest cities, then eradicated what remained…or so he thought.


    • Unlockable Character #2: Darkseid

      How To Unlock: Darkseid has been confirmed as the first DLC character.
      Darkseid character is only available as pre-order DLC, as part of the Ultimate Edition (AKA the Season Pass), or if you buy him from the character select screen (that leads to the Xbox Store or PlayStation Store) to unlock with $6 of your real money.

    Here’s a video that shows Darkseid in action in-game with a character introduction:

    A being of pure hate incarnate, the lord of Apokolips Darkseid demands the total subjugation of all existence. His merciless obsession has left a wake of suffering and obliteration as he seeks the Anti-Life Equation. With his invincible body, limitless strength, army of Parademons, and the annihilating power of his Omega Beams make him not only a threat to this world, but to every world within reach.


    • Unlockable Character #3: Red Hood

      How To Unlock: Red Hood has been confirmed as the first of nine additional DLC character, he will be released on June 13th, 2017.
      This character from the DC Universe will be available for download to everyone who has paid for the “Fighter Pack 1” DLC, which is bundled with the Digital Deluxe and Ultimate Editions of Injustice 2.

    • Unlockable Character #4: Sub-Zero

      How To Unlock: Sub-Zero has been confirmed as the second of nine additional DLC character, he will be released on July 11th, 2017.
      This guest character from the Mortal Kombat Universe will be available for download to everyone who has paid for the “Fighter Pack 1” DLC, which is bundled with the Digital Deluxe and Ultimate Editions of Injustice 2.

    • Unlockable Character #5: Starfire

      How To Unlock: Starfire has been confirmed as the third of nine additional DLC character.
      This character from the DC Universe will be available for download to everyone who has paid for the “Fighter Pack 1” DLC, which is bundled with the Digital Deluxe and Ultimate Editions of Injustice 2.

    Here’s a video that shows the 3 Fighter Pack 1 DLC characters:

    The first three DLC characters for Injustice 2 revealed! Batman’s second protégé, Red Hood, the leader of the Lin Kuei, Sub-Zero, and the royal exile from Tamaran, Starfire, join the fight.

    – Red Hood: Jason Todd once served as Batman’s second protégé “Robin” before being brutally murdered by The Joker. Years later, the powerful healing waters of the Lazarus Pit brought Jason Todd back to life. However the power of the pit comes at a cost, and a change takes hold in Jason. He now uses mantle of the Red Hood to wage a lethal war on crime.

    – Sub-Zero: Sub-Zero is a lethal cryomancer and leader of the reformed Lin Kuei clan. When Sub-Zero was younger, the Lin Kuei were corrupted and destroyed from within, staining their honor. Now serving as Grandmaster, Sub-Zero vows to redeem that honor, pledging to defend the realm from threats near, far, and beyond. In the intergalactic menace Brainiac, Sub-Zero sees a threat to all worlds, and perhaps his greatest opportunity for redemption yet.

    – Starfire: 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.

    • Unlockable Characters #6-11

      How To Unlock: The Ultimate Pack for Injustice 2 upgrades you to the Ultimate Edition and grants access to all 9 additional DLC fighters as they get released over 2017.
      Which of the last 6 DLC character could be next to be announced? Bizarro, Lobo, Martian Manhunter, Batwoman, Penguin, Constantine, Animal Man, and more obscure DC, Mortal Kombat or other guest characters? Who’s your favorite?

    Note: These 6 DLC characters were not included in the Injustice 2 planning, therefore this is not on-disc DLC, since these characters reportedly did not go into development until after the full game went gold. Instead, we can expect them to treat downloadable characters just like the full fledged on-disc characters.


    • All Alternate Characters

      How To Unlock: So far 7 Alternate Characters* are playable as “Premier Skins”, which transform characters from the existing roster into other DC Comics characters with new appearance, moves, unique voices and dialogue.
