The Injustice 2 roster is expanding yet again! NetherRealm Studios just revealed a new addition to the highly anticipated sequel to the 2013 Injustice: Gods Among Us – Doctor Fate! Fate is not exactly an A-list character unlike the members of the Justice League but those even remotely involved in the DC universe would have at least heard of his name. Doctor Fate is one of the most powerful sorcerers in the DC Universe by channeling the spirit of Nabu through the helmet of Fate.
From the gameplay trailer for Doctor Fate, it is hard not to be excited for this character. From the large array of spells at his disposal to the beautifully design ultimate move, Doctor Fate is the first of many magically based characters to be introduced to Injustice 2, one can hope. Doctor Fate joins the list of confirmed playable characters so far which includes Swamp Thing, Batman, Blue Beetle, Black Canary, Flash, Harley Quinn, Superman, Supergirl, Wonder Woman, Deadshot, Gorilla Grodd, Aquaman, and Atrocitus.
Given Doctor Fate’s position in the DC universe, you can expect that he will play an integral part in the Injustice 2 plot. The trailer hints that he will go against Superman and his regime.
As for the new gear system, NetherRealm also dropped some details on how the new system works so that us players will get some idea of how it will be. You can read the full article here.
