While a release date for the Injustice 2 beta has yet to be announced, we expect more information soon. This latest reveal follows the Injustice 2 “Redraw the Lines” trailer that came out two days ago. Aside from its depicted continuation of Injustice: Gods Among Us, more characters were added to the roster. And we’re certain that every character, teased or otherwise, will be playable.
Thus, as of January 17, here’s our list of characters:
- Blue Beetle
- Super Girl
- Robin(Damian Wayne speculated)
- The Flash
- Wonder Woman
- Harley Quinn
- Gorilla Grodd
- Poison Ivy
And Darkseid will arrive as a pre-order bonus, rounding to 16 total. Whether or not he will appear in the main storyline is another question. But in following the bonuses, NetherRealm announced three editions available for pre-order: Standard, Deluxe, and Ultimate. Deluxe Edition(Available at specific retailers) promises 3 extra DLC characters, while Ultimate Edition promises 9. Both carry the alternative Power Girl Skin for Super Girl; a completely new look with new voice and dialogue.
Anyone searching can register for the Injustice 2 beta here, and play before the game arrives on May 16 of this year.
