NetherRealm Studios was supposed to start paving the way by hosting an open beta for the much-awaited PC version of Injustice 2 more than a week back. However, an unprecedented delay forced the developer to move the date forward. Today, we finally have confirmation on the open beta as well as the release date.
Injustice 2 will officially release for PC on November 14. Before that, an open beta is already live and will continue until November 10. Those who choose to participate during this time will be able to only play online matches in order to stress test the netcode and server infrastructure.
You are not required to pre-order Injustice 2 in order to be part of the ongoing beta. Simply head to Steam and download the client for free.
Below are some of the key features that players can expect from the full version of the fighting sequel.
- Every Battle Defines You: With every match you’ll earn gear to equip, customize and evolve your roster.
- A New Threat Rises: Picking up where Injustice left off, Batman struggles against Superman’s regime, as a new threat appears that will put Earth’s very existence at risk.
- The Best of DC: Choose from the biggest DC Universe roster ever and battle across iconic locations in epic scale battles.
- Built by NetherRealm and Adapted by QLOC for PC: Developers of the best-selling and critically acclaimed Mortal Kombat franchise
Elsewhere, creative director Ed Boon has confirmed that Fighter Pack 3 will be revealed on November 10. The final post-release character, Hellboy, from Fighter Pack 2 will be added to the roster on November 14 for season pass owners and November 21 for everyone else.
You are free to speculate over what new characters are making their way into Injustice 2. Atom was already revealed last month as the first incoming character from the third pack.
