Injustice 2 is getting a DLC plan that will far exceed its predecessor, according to NetherRealms Studios’ creative director, Ed Boon.
The studio reportedly is expected to add even more characters to Injustice 2 than in any previous titles that have come from the developer.
“One of the things we’ve been doing, trying to do more and more with every game… is to support it for a longer period of time,” Boon said. “With DLC characters, we’ve had four with Mortal Kombat, six with Injustice, eight with Mortal Kombat X, and with Injustice 2 we plan on continuing that pattern. It will certainly be more aggressive than we’ve been in the past.”
While many fans may roll their eyes at the thought of plans for DLC coming to a title that is not even finished yet, Boon assures fans that it’s still a plan in progress and the team is focused on the development of the game.
“We have ideas in our head of the things we’d like to consider but certainly haven’t like nailed down, ‘this is going to be the way to do it,’” he said. “Ideally, to me, the whole purpose of this feature is customization, longevity, and ongoing molding of your character, so to speak.”
Injustice 2 was revealed last week and is expected to release in 2017.
