Lobo was announced quite a while ago that he was going to be Injustice’s first DLC character, but gameplay footage of Lobo in action has officially been shown. NetherRealm Studios released a video of him beating the snot out of Batman on their official YouTube page.
Lobo is free to all those who bought the $15 season pass for Injustice, and will come out on May 7th. The season pass will get you all 4 of the upcoming downloadable characters as well. If you opt to buy each character individually, then each character will cost 5 dollars. If you see yourself buying all of the DLC, you’ll be saving $5 by getting the season pass.
From the video, it looks like Lobo is a well-rounded character, with close up attacks with his sawed-off shotgun, and long range capabiliites with his chain. Having a superhero utilize a shotgun to just blast other superheroes in the face is pretty funny to me, and I’m excited to see someone with a little more edge added to Injustice’s roster. Lobo’s finisher is similarly comical, with him getting on his bike and blowing fiery exhaust into Batman’s face. And it ends with a blurred out middle finger to the Dark Knight’s face. Who hasn’t wanted to flick Bruce Wayne off before?
The video also showcases Batman wearing a costume from the Flashpoint universe, but there’s no word yet on whether different character skins will be available as DLC.
