NetherRealm Studios have confirmed that Atom will be the seventh DLC character for Injustice 2
The reveal of Atom came during on the finale of Chasing the Cup: Injustice 2 on The CW. The trailer included a brief look at his fighting style, which involves heavy usage of his quantum shrinking technology. In Injustice 2, players will play as the Ryan Choi incarnation of Atom who is seeking his mentor, and original Atom, Ray Palmer. Palmer has mysteriously disappeared, and only Ryan’s use of the quantum bio-belt can help him find his lost friend.
Atom likely won’t launch until much later. Currently, NetherRealm is busy pushing out the characters in Fighter Pack 2. Black Manta launched in September, Raiden yesterday, and Hellboy still hasn’t been dated. Atom, who is part of Fighter Pack 3, likely won’t be released until after Hellboy.
Injustice 2 is available now on PS4 and Xbox One.
