Hardcore fans of “Injustice 2” will soon get their hands on Black Manta, Raiden, and Hellboy as the three DLC characters coming in Fighter Pack 2. During the Gamescom 2017 reveal, NetherRealm Studios confirmed that the first slew of details on Black Manta gameplay will be revealed today, August 27.

First in-game look

Apparently, game director Ed Boon dropped the first in-game still image on his Twitter page ahead of the character reveal happening later on. The photo shows an intense toe-to-toe battle between Black Manta and the Swamp Thing.

In the image above, the Swamp Thing appears to be dancing while getting a shot at the foot with a laser unleased by Black Manta.

Additionally, Aquaman’s arch nemesis is clad in his suit right on point as the villain fans came to know in the DC universe.

Watch tower stream schedule

Fans have to see yet the moves or abilities of Black Manta during the Watch Tower stream on NetherRealm Studios’ Twitch channel. It is slated to go live at 4:00 p.m. PST.

Apparently, the reveal trailer of Fighter Pack 2 only shows a short glimpse at the new DLC fighters. But the latest sneak peek does tease Black Manta firing some rocket launchers mounted right on his shoulders.

It remains to be confirmed, however, if those will be part of the weapons available for the character in the game or for his ultimate version.

Black Manta's abilities

So far, there are already some hints suggesting the abilities of the fourth DLC character.

One is the laser beam coming from his helmet and of course, the rocket launchers seen from the Gamescom 2017 reveal trailer.

Then, the character appears to be holding a long rifle in the final frame of the Fighter Pack 2 trailer alongside other two confirmed fighters, Hellboy and Raiden.

It is plausible that his main weapons, the trident or the dual blades, will be used in close-range combat.

What has been shown in the teasers look to be launching some long-range attacks against his opponents.

All these, however, are mere speculations at this time and the official details will be available in a short while.

“Injustice 2” is currently available on Xbox One and PS4, with a PC version expected to arrive sometime in the near future.

The game is expected to receive one more character DLC pack dubbed as Fighter Pack 3 following the release of Fighter Pack 1 and now, the Fighter Pack 2.
