The name Sub-Zero alone incites shivers down anyone’s spine, triggering memories of the ice-cold warrior’s terrifying fatalities. To the excitement of fans of fighting games, it has been announced that Sub-Zero will join the jam-packed roster of heroes in Injustice 2, sprinkling a little Mortal Kombat hospitality to the DCU.
The announcement was made earlier by a tweet from Ed Boon, co-creator of Mortal Kombat and Creative Director of NetherRealm Studios, the producer of both game franchises. Injustice 2 was released back in May, but the anticipation has been building for the release of extra characters to the roster. The three new fighters that were unveiled as a teaser were Starfire, Red Hood, and Sub-Zero.
Thanks to Boon’s tweet, we now know the exact date that “Winter is coming,” July 11th of this year. Those who have special editions and season passes will be able to download the newest fighter immediately that day, and should be made available to purchase additionally in-game for others.
We can’t wait to see Sub-Zero take down the famed superheroes of the DC Universe and are eager to find out who will be next. Make sure to get your hands on him come July 11 and keep an eye out for more future announcements on Injustice 2.
