During yesterday’s gameplay live stream for Injustice 2, NetherRealm Studios boss Ed Boon revealed some interesting information about the game which included their DLC plans as well as comments on micro-transactions in the game. It was confirmed by Ed that Injustice 2 will have the largest roster that any previous NetherRealm Studios game, that is also including the DLC too.
On the subject of DLC, Ed also confirmed that its very likely that third party characters will be coming to Injustice 2 through DLC as the third party or also known as “guest characters” were extremely popular with fans of Mortal Kombat X. With Mortal Kombat X, there was four third party characters (Alien, Jason, Predator and Leatherface) which were all from horror franchises to fit with the Mortal Kombat theme. It seems like it would be an obvious choice to bring back guest characters again for Injustice 2 if they sold so well.
On the subject of micro-transactions, it was confirmed during the live stream that Injustice 2 will not have micro-transactions for gear, so the game doesn’t become a buy to win kind of game. That doesn’t confirm that there won’t be other micro-transactions within the game however.
What are your thoughts on guest characters? Who would you like to see in the game? Let us know in the comments section below.
