‘Injustice: Gods Among Us’ First DLC Character is Lobo; ‘Tomb Raider’ Gets 3 New Costumes

Injustice Gods Among Us Lobo

Injustice: Gods Among Us has been on store shelves for less than 24 hours, and already speculation abounds regarding additional DLC characters. While developer NetherRealm Studios has packed the Injustice roster with a venerable cornucopia of DC Comics heroes and villains, there are still plenty of iconic or fan-favorite characters that did not make the cut.

However, thanks to the magic of DLC, and for a few extra dollars, players will eventually be able to bolster their base level Injustice rosters with a few extra characters. The question is: which character will NetherRealm roll out first?

Allegedly, the first character up on the DLC docket is none other than Lobo, the interstellar bounty hunter. Lobo’s involvement was reportedly confirmed by an image on NeoGAF, which depicts Injustice: Gods Among Us‘ version of the character in front of the game’s logo.

Even though there is no word from NetherRealm, it’s not too surprising that they would choose Lobo as a DLC character. Ever since the Injustice: Gods Among Us roster was solidified, fans have been crying foul of Lobo’s exclusion. To be fair, there were plenty of other characters that did not make the list, but Lobo seemed to come up the most frequently in the comments.

Unfortunately, the Lobo image arrives with no additional information, and no solid confirmation from NetherRealm Studios. Yesterday, the developer was planning to unveil the victor in their epic showdown between Batman and Superman, but after the tragic events earlier in the day the event was postponed.

In addition to the live stream, NetherRealm was to unveil a new DLC character. So, for all intents and purposes, it’s safe to say Lobo was to be that character. We’ll keep you posted if/when NetherRealm confirms Lobo.

In other cosmetic DLC news, pictures of three new costumes for Tomb Raider have leaked online. It should be mentioned, though, that Lara Croft’s new duds likely won’t do anything more than add a change of scenery to the iconic adventurer, as seen in the images below.

There’s no word from Square Enix as to when these new DLC costumes might be made available, or how much they will cost (if they won’t be free). Although game sales weren’t quite up to Square Enix’s projections, the Tomb Raider still ranks very high on our list of this year’s best games. We recommend checking it out with or without the allure of new costumes.

Are you happy to hear Lobo is likely headed to the Injustice: Gods Among Us roster? What other characters would you like to see NetherRealm include?

Injustice: Gods Among Us is available today for the PS3, Xbox 360, and Wii U.

  1. Hell Yeah! Lobo! Now all I want is Martian Manhunter, Blue Beetle, Black Manta and Atrocitus. Course guys like Etrigan, Deadman and Doctor Fate would be cool too.

    • I rllu jus want Brainiac and Martian Manhunter.

      • Second Brainiac!

    • I really want BLACK CANARY!!!

  2. Cool! :-)

    I’m happy Lobo is finally in it though not as a DLC character. I must admit however that I’m getting tired of this whole DLC deal shortly after games are released..

    On the supposed design it self(If it becomes the final) I’m not that glad about. Granted everybody looks somewhat different in some way I’m just not a fan of this character design. Never been a fan of his spike wearing/dreadlock version..

  3. Just want to say I’ve been playing injustice all day and it’s freaking cool! I really enjoy it and this is coming from a non fighter gamer. It’s weird to learn how to play these games but it’s awesome. I’m excite for dlc I’m really hoping for skin packs down the line such as a Nolan skin pack for batman and definelty a MAN OF STEEL skin with cavils likeliness and voice.

    As for tomb raider I may check these out when there available. Gonna replay it again soon. Beat it twice so probably after I get my injustice and the te show fixes ill give it another play. One of my all time favorites tomb raider is.

    Anthony,
    When will Gamerant hae a injustice review up? Like to read your guys reviews.

    • Not sure. I would say that if anyone was to review it, Andrew Dyce would be the man.

      • Cool thanks well I look forward to it for sure.

  4. hmm lobo is a cool cat but hope they will a jsa character in the mix it is cool seeing giganta and atom smasher in the background of hall of justice arena

  5. IM STILL HOPING THEY WILL RELEASE BLACK CANARY!! SHES SO FRICKEN AWESOMEEE!! Best DC Char<3

    • Don’t wanna spoil anything, but pay attention to Green Arrow in story mode. They make it pretty clear whether or not we’ll get Black Canary.

  6. Swamp Thing and Animal Man.

    If you haven’t read the new 52 version of there respective stories, I highly suggest you do.

  7. We need the classic tank top and booty shorts for the new Lara!!
