Black Manta, the first of three characters from Fighter Pack 2, is now available for download in Injustice 2. The Aquaman villain has been heavily requested ever since he was seen as a part of the game’s environmental interactions. Now that he’s in the game, players can see what type of shaders and gear the character has.
When his showcase video was unveiled, it seemed like the character would be one of the best fighters in the game. He has a nice mix of close-range combos and long-range projectile attacks like his lasers and missiles. It will be interesting to see how effective his unlockable abilities are, some of which might have been seen in the aforementioned video.
Here is the official announcement from WB Games:
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.
Raiden and Hellboy are the next fighters who will be joining the Injustice 2 roster, with one more Fighter Pack scheduled for release sometime after these two DLC characters come out. In the meantime, fans will be pleased with the Aquaman villain, plus the previously released characters from Fighter Pack 1.
Injustice 2 is available now on the PS4 and Xbox One. Fans that want all of the DLC can purchase the characters individually or purchase the Ultimate Edition upgrade. A special deluxe edition for PC was recently leaked, possibly confirming a port for gaming computers.
