Injustice 2 welcomes Hellboy into its star-studded superhero fold

Injustice 2 welcomes Hellboy into its star-studded superhero fold

Hellboy will be available to players who own the Injustice 2 Ultimate Edition, Injustice 2 Digital Deluxe Edition, Injustice 2 Ultimate Pack or Fighter Pack 2 on November 14. Sure, Raiden and Black Manta were expected to be added to the game, but Hellboy? But hey, NetherRealm Studios (who also make Mortal Kombat) and Hellboy are pretty much a ideal fit, so most fans are hotly anticipating the big red lug's return to video games.

Developed by NetherRealm for Warner Bros. At the end of the trailer we're told that Hellboy would be coming in November, which we knew already, but now we know exactly when we'll be able to get our hands on 'em.

Injustice 2 is now available on Xbox One and PlayStation 4. We see various moves throughout the trailer, including a shoulder tackle, the ability to gain armor and absorb multiple hits, and what appears to be a command throw. As you may have noticed, NetherRealm aren't much for subtlety. Fighter Pack #2 will be available for purchase beginning September 12, 2017, and the first character will be available for early access the same day. The Hellboy DLC will be available to all players on November 21. If you're only interested in Hellboy, you can grab him à la carte for $6.
