Batgirl DLC for Injustice confirmed

NetherRealm confirms Batgirl the second of playable DLC characters for fighting game.

by

NetherRealm Studios has confirmed Batgirl as the second of four planned downloadable content characters for Injustice: Gods Among Us. The news comes by way of the game's official Twitter account, which referenced the character's existence emerging ahead of schedule.

"Looks like the bat's out of the bag," NetherRealm wrote. "Batgirl is a playable DLC character in Injustice. Catch her gameplay next week!"

No information about pricing or a release date for Batgirl was made available. The first DLC character for Injustice: Gods Among Us will be Lobo, due to arrive May 7.

Four DLC characters are included with the $15 Injustice: Gods Among Us Season Pass. For more, check out GameSpot's review.

I'd be mad about Batgirl (another effing batman character), but I already got the season pass and after downloading her she is really fun to play.

Yuck... more Batman characters when there are TONS of other heroes and villains in the DC Universe.  Why only four extra characters anyway?

How about Clayface or Parasite?  One can mimic you the other can steal your powers and use them against you.

Four uninspiring characters to add to an otherwise fun, if rather shallow, game. Out of the entire stable of Justice League potentials this is the choice they make. Yawn. These will just be more of the same in my opinion. I was really hoping Plasticman would show up, Booster Gold with his robot sidekick, Scarecrow would be good too with some fear bombs raining down around him. bah!

So what was the point of the twitter poll? Ed Boon did a twitter poll we get to decide who would be DLC between Power Girl, Batgirl and Supergirl and Power Girl won the Poll and Yet Batgirl is in it? What the Hell? Power Girl is my Fav Super Heroine and I wanted her in it she won the poll. at least replace Scorpion or Zod for her.

I for one was really looking forward to LOBO, but the other 3 in this group are lame. They should do Martian Manhunter , Zantana, (or Static Shock or Steel) and Darkseid and maybe Kilbek, or  Metallo or Brainiac. (what a great 8 pk dlc that would be!)

Great another Batman character (sarcasm).

No Martian Manhunter? Zatanna? Dr Fate? Watchmen characters? No?

Okay, no sale then!

I KNEW IT!

Come gimme some Battin', sugah!!

Sad thing is, she looks more muscular than the actual Batman.

No really, why does Batman look so anorexic in inJustice? They should've used the Arkham model, now THAT'S a BatMAN!.

Are you kidding me? $15 for a few characters!? It should be free!

Im still not feelin gthis game. I love MK9, but just cant get into the Demo of this game so have decided to pass. Glad, now that I have learned there is locked content on the disc! Chargeable DLC is only justifiable for post release production.

J'onn the martian from Justice League would've been a better pick as a DLC character.

The next DLC should have Danny the Street as a character...

I actually think Scorpion could be kind of cool in Injustice if he had some kind of story segment explaining how and why he is there. For example, imagine if he was brought into the DC continuity by the League of Assassins to kill Batman. Maybe even have Ra's Al Ghul trick Scorpion into believing that Wayne is a part of the Lin Kuei and is single handedly responsible for the destruction of the Shirai Ryu clan. That would create a reason for Scorpion's presence in Injustice, and give him a motive to fight. Next, Scorpion would lure the Batman out by stalking and nearly killing Batgirl and Nightwing. Batman would then clash with Scorpion for the first time, and come very close to dying himself. However, Batman would escape before Scorpion has a chance to finish him. Next, Batman travels to the Watchtower to seek assistance from various other member of the Justice league. Meanwhile, Scorpion comes into contact with Killer Frost whom he believes to be some kind of twisted Sub-Zero spawn. Scorp violently murders Killer Frost, thus attracting unwanted  negative attention from various supervillians such as Luthor.  Scorpion is pushed to his very limits when he is forced to survive being hunted by both the Justice League and the Legion Of Doom. Scorpion uses his wits to outmaneuver his opponents, but is eventually cornered by Batman. Finally, the player gets to beat the hell out of Scorpion and send him back to the Neatherrealm!

I know, my idea is sorta lame, but it was the best I could do. Anyway, don't get me wrong, I would much rather have an actual DC character, but if Netherrealm actually tried to make Scorpion a viable character instead of just forcing him into the game, then it could be okay.

Characters I would like as dlc include:

Firestorm

Black Canary

Black Manta

Star Sapphire

Despero

Dr. Fate

Dat comments section.  As usual, honestly, all the complaining accomplishes nothing, but then again I guess some people have to let off steam.

NRS are bastards selling us an entire game yet locking a portion of it and charging us more money if we want to be able to have complete access to the full disc game we purchased. Damn criminals!

If the rest are indeed Zod and Scorpion I might just buy Lobo and call it a day. All the other DLC characters don't interest me. =/

DLC should be free, you shouldn't have to pay for something that should already be in the game. also the game cost $60 when it first comes out,it gets really ugly when you add the price of dlc too.

I want Atrocitus the Red, The Martian Manhunter, Eetrigan, & Parallax-Hal Jordan....

Shame as i believe they wont be chosen though....

I'll just buy the eventual complete edition with all the DLC for $20 when the time is right.

I just want all the DLC characters to be revealed already arhghghghg.

Give me Static, Power Girl, Martian Manhunter, Firestorm, Beast Boy, Starfire, and other DC heroes and villains. But, there's way too many Batcharacters in the game. There's no need for so many. Give us more variety other than those that exist in Gotham City.

@garysingh34 The DLC isn't on the disc, Ed Boon has said this on multiple occasions.

@Darkmoone1 I heard from a reliable source it's Poison Ivy and Scorpion. However Zod could come out to pump people up for Man of Steel.

@WWE6427  You ignorant basterd, yes why should they not get paid for work they've done, fuck them.

if you found the original lineup not enough, then don't buy the game, if you don't want to buy the dlc then don't

@PSYCHOV3N0M I'm personally excited for Batgirl :D But Manhunter would be pretty cool.

And I'm with you on Scorpion.. won't be getting him when he comes out.

@xRoYx Since 2 of the 4 rumored characters have been confirmed, it's safe to assume that all of the DLC characters have been "revealed".

NbAlIvEr10000

@Strider8009 Actually they are not on the disc.... Its part of the season pass support and the additional characters will all be downloads

soulless4now

@TooCoolForYou Wait, they don't have Martian Manhunter in the game? I thought he'd be included since he's an original team member...

@TheGreatPhoenix @WWE6427 You seem to be under the impression we ( gamers) work for the developers.

Unfortunately for you, it's the other way around.

You want to get ripped off? Have fun being a bitch.

I'll wait for the bargain bin.

@WhiteStormy @xRoYx True true.  I'm actually hoping a miracle might occur though and the last 2 rumored characters are different.

TooCoolForYou

@soulless4now @TooCoolForYou You would think he would be one of the first characters they put in the game. But, he's not a playable character. But he appears as a background character in a S.T.A.R. Labs mission. That's so weird, he should have been in the game. 

WWE6427

@TheGreatPhoenix @WWE6427 No its not I have ever right to bitch because they are ripping us off, they are making millions selling copies of the game too many countries and thousands and thousands of stores. then they pull stuff out of the game or make it later so they make even more money because thousands and thousands of dollars isnt enough money for them. And as for you stop kissing the developers ass my so called ignorance isnt killing me but your ass kissing is kill you.

@TohouAsura @TheGreatPhoenix @WWE6427 yeah wait for it to drop in price why should we the gamers get ripped off, if it wasn't for us the developers would be out of business. they should not rip us off

WWE6427
WWE6427

@TheGreatPhoenix @WWE6427 It should be in the game this never happened before the ps3 and xbox 360 came out. also I never bought the game and you are the idiot because you paid full price for the game and will pay even more money to have stuff added on to it. you let them rip you off.

TheGreatPhoenix
TheGreatPhoenix

@WWE6427 it shouldn't be already in the game, if you believed it should, then you shouldn't have bought the product in the first place. You would knowingly buy a product you believed was incomplete, and then whine about it? idiot

@MrSmarties @WWE6427 @TheGreatPhoenix  Bite me

we shouldn't have to fork out more money for somthing that should already be in the game

@WWE6427 @TheGreatPhoenix well apparently it isnt locked on the disc. Also why are we so shocked about this? DLC has been a big component for games to increase revenue and longevity of the game. 15 dollars for characters isn't a big deal... These developers care about your feedback and focus on making a great game for you guys. Having them make more revenue to PAY FOR THEIR WORK is not an evil thing. I buy all my games hard copies, and ill pay glady for characters to enjoy. I like netherrealm and i like their games. Grow up.

@Strider8009 @PSYCHOV3N0M Because a few completely optional dollars every month to keep customers returning is called Marketing?

You complain too much.
