'Injustice: Gods Among Us' Blackest Night DLC Revealed

Get your hands on zombie Batman this April!

For those of you who love zombies and are looking forward to getting your hands on Injustice: Gods Among Us on April 16th for Playstation 3, XBox 360 and the Wii U, then you are absolutely going to love this bit of news. Earlier today the latest Injustice: Gods Among Us trailer was revealed on Amazon Germany's listing for the game and it showed us how NetherRealm and DC have taken one of publisher's most popular story lines in recent years and merged it with their upcoming game. That's right, the upcoming game will feature a Blackest Night DLC pack that will allow players to dress their favorite characters up as zombie versions of themselves.

The German trailer gives us a closer look at "zombie" Batman, Catwoman and others, and the promotional images for the DLC pack give us a peek at Wonder Woman, Superman and Harley Quinn in zombie form. If you want this particular DLC pack and you live in the U.S., you'll have to pre-order your copy of Injustice: Gods Among Us through Best Buy. But if zombies aren't your thing, you do have other options. If you preorder the game via Wal Mart you will receive the Arkham City skin and a "bonus copy of Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe." Gamestop preorders of Injustice Gods Among Us will include a "Red Son" bonus pack which is based on the Mark Millar story SUPERMAN: RED SON.

What did you think of the preview for the DLC? Are you planning to preorder the game? Does the Blackest Night "zombie Batman" pique your interest?

I suddenly went from not pre-ordering this game to needing to pre-order it from Best Buy.

That's cool

God, I hate pre-order bonuses.

At that zoom level, zombie Batman just looks like drunk Batman.

It's cool but it's really just skins. Not really worth paying extra for since they really look the same except grey. and with red eyes. Which kind of fails for Solomon Grundy who's already a zombie.

You put PS2 when you mean PS3, thought you'd want to know.

Lame. The confusing thing for me is why they didn't have Batman in the Red Son DLC pack...but they do make a lame version of Grundy for it, and he doesn't even show up in the graphic novel.

Why do they have to announce DLC before the game's release?? That is stupid...

Red eyes and ratty clothes. Big deal.

Posted by evilvegeta74

I did the pre-order thing at Game Stop, these are nothing more than skins. Specifically I'm looking for DLCs/Down loadable characters, not DLCs/Down loadable costumes, the costumes should be unlocked in game content. They need to start announcing downloadable characters for the game.

meh....they're not even their real Black Lantern suits

Should've announced Gatman as a DLC character.

This is more of a pre-order bonus, but they're definitely re-releasing it later on as DLC. And then again in Injustice: Gods Among Us - Game of the Year/Complete Edition.

I'd rather have other characters for a DLC pack then outfits. G.L. corps memebers. Teen Titans or the Outlaws. Somethig like that.

Posted by lifeboy

Wonder Woman with pants! Sweet! Go back to the pants DC comics!

Posted by NightFang

Wheres Black Hand?

Posted by Z3RO180

I have already per-ordered from amazon and i do not want this DLC cause the costumes look nouthing like blackest night so if I get it I will give the code away.

Why would you ever do that? Its free stuff, its not like a crappy pre-order deal is going to give your game cancer or something

Posted by shadowtaker

I going wait for game of the year/complete edition

Posted by Juandicimo_Magnifico45

So "dead" version is just a torn cape? Seems Legit.

Posted by ThePRez

this DLC is kind of lame. The designs arent the big deal specially

Posted by danhimself

meanwhile if you preorder through amazon you get crap like me :(

@evilvegeta74: Your sooo right

Edited by TheMultiverse

Meehh. Sigh, ....... ... .......... This might have been cool if they tried. Plus, i'm sorry, but the graphics look like poop.

Yes i'm still buying the game :)

Thanks for seeing my point of view!

This is stupid. Not only are these skins NOT Blackest Night, why, out of all the playable characters who they could've made into zombies, would they choose Harley Quinn? Did they not think this through at all or are they really just that stupid?

Posted by FoxxFireArt

This video wasn't working on my Kindle, but I went to check it out on You Tube. Those do look like a some cool character skins. I'm just not much into fighting games. Well, I did recently buy PERSONA 4 ARENA.

Posted by Gambit1024

It would've been better if it was the deputy lanterns instead. Orange Lantern Lex Luthor, Blue Lantern Flash, Violet Lantern Wonder Woman, Black Lantern Batman, Yellow Lantern Hal Jordan, etc.

Posted by Skulexander

@Gambit1024: That woulda been awesome!

Posted by RedheadedAtrocitus

Doesn't seem ALL that impressive even if I do like the concept. Seems like they should be fair and do skins for other Corps for the characters too. Still, nice idea...even if it is like others say, just skins.

its a pre-order bonus.

ALL of the characters get a zombie mode.

@Gambit1024: Couldn't agree more.

Posted by sethysquare

I dont understand why arent they giving us blackest night outfits? why zombie instead?

Do you know if the WiiU will get the pre order bonus'?

Posted by hamlet33

Meh I want the Balckest Night costumes are cool but gamestops better. New costumes AND like 20 missions. If it came with some blackest night MISSIONS it'd be totally different....

Posted by ravisher

dlc before that game is out? hmm

why didnt they just add it in there for free and be nice to us

Posted by Big_Nasty

Zombie Version on Solomon Grungy,.. HA.

Posted by SavageDragon

Gotter Unter uns. Lol.

Posted by fragmentmind

If batman wears a gimp costume I'm in.

Posted by TheCannon

Don't call this a Blackest Night pack when it only has one costume to do with Blackest Night. Call it a "Zombie Pack"
