The trailer advertises three new incoming playable fighters that will round out the game's roster: Aquaman villain Black Manta, the thunder god Raiden from the Mortal Kombat series, and Hellboy, the popular Dark Horse Comics character created by Mike Mignola. Those who own the Injustice 2 Ultimate Edition, the Injustice 2 Ultimate Pack, or Fighter Pack #2 will get early access to the first character on that day, though we are now unsure which of the three fighters that will be. Super-villain Black Manta, Raiden from Mortal Kombat and Hellboy will be released as downloadable content in the coming months. Ignore the May 27 date shown at the end. You can see more in the trailer that is posted down below. Hellboy lights his cigarette from the still burning missile, and tells the audience that "this just got a whole lot more interesting" - he's not wrong.

As expected, NetherRealm Studios unveiled the three characters that'll be included in the Fighter Pack 2 expansion for Injustice 2 today at Gamescom.

The second, and probably more likely scenario is that as a wight, dragons breathe something other than orange flame. Although Game of Thrones is an infinitely meme-able show, some episodes provide more fodder than others.

Going by the pattern, we can expect the Injustice 2 characters in Fighter Pack 2 to be released in September, October and November - unless something changes. However, exact details on which of the three characters will be available first are now unknown. Fans clambered to get the best gear and shaders for each hero, as well as carefully listening to their dialogue to spot the teases to other characters and universe they're familiar with.

None other than Hellboy will be joining past film origin DLC breakthroughs like the Alien (Xenomorph), Jason, Leatherface, Predator, and Freddie, by way of Injustice 2.
