Developer NetherRealm Studios has finally unleashed the newest fighter in “Injustice 2” named Sub-Zero. Although this is not the first time the Cyromancer gets incarnated, his addition in the sequel comes with multiple changes. Still, at the end of the day, is this character worth it?

The very own creative director of NetherRealm Studios named Ed Boon said that Sub-Zero is unlike any other incarnation from the previous title and other franchises. In “Injustice 2,” the “Mortal Kombat” veteran does not only don a new appearance, but he also arrives with brand new cloning ability.

Here is everything about him in a nutshell.

Is Sub-Zero really worth it?

According to Twinfinite, the aforementioned character is only accessible through either of the two DLC packs. These are namely the Fighter Pack 1 and the Ultimate Upgrade Pack. Interestingly, he can also be acquired by the upgraded editions recently introduced by the studio. These are the Deluxe and the Ultimate. It should be noted that these contents only provide players with early access to the fighter, but as soon as July 18 arrives, he will be made available to everyone.

Sub-Zero in “Injustice 2” is purchasable at $5.99. Although it is not that pricey, money is always a decision factor. Therefore, players will have to weigh if this fighter is worth every penny spent.

To some he is, and they have actually bought the ice master already. At the end of the day, Sub-Zero is all about adding fresh elements to the sequel. He is not from the DC franchise after all, thus make him an interesting inclusion. He is also perfect for the fans of the “Mortal Kombat” series.

What makes him different?

It is worth noting that Sub-Zero is not really the first character in “Injustice 2” to offer the ice tricks.

That is because the game already has Captain Cold. This guy is great at mid-range and is versatile in some ways. But if he is to be compared the Sub-Zero, he is definitely a bit of a stretch. First and foremost, Sub-Zero came from a very well-respected series, the same series that brought Liu Kang and Raiden, among others. But unlike Captain Cold, the Cyromancer has a lot of tricks to pull from his hat.

He is a martial arts master, and, more importantly, his view towards life is compelling.

Basically, in the sequel, the ice master longs for redemption. The moment he discovers Brainiac’s plan to bring chaos, he sees it as an opportunity to redeem himself. This is how he basically fits into the DC universe in the game.
