Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment today released an all-new video revealing legendary Mortal Kombat character Scorpion as the next DLC character that will be available for the DC Comics fighting game Injustice: Gods Among Us. The version of Scorpion seen in the game is designed by Jim Lee, Co-Publisher at DC Entertainment, and pays homage to NetherRealm Studios’ original blockbuster franchise.
Scorpion will be available on Xbox LIVEŽ Marketplace for 400 Microsoft Points and PlayStationŽNetwork at a price of $4.99.
Developed by award-winning NetherRealm Studios, Injustice: Gods Among Us introduces a new franchise in the fighting game genre and a brand new story created in collaboration between NetherRealm Studios, DC Entertainment and comic book writers Justin Gray and Jimmy Palmiotti. As the story unfolds, players will experience the power, gadgetry and unparalleled strength of some the most popular DC Comics heroes and villains, such as Batman, Superman, The Flash, Wonder Woman, Green Arrow, Aquaman, The Joker and others, as they engage in epic battles in a world where the line between good and evil is blurred.

INJUSTICE update: Season Pass Members get to play Scorpion starting today!Everyone else has to wait until Tuesday June 11 to buy him.— Ed Boon (@noobde) June 4, 2013
- Added Scorpion Gameplay Functionality. (NOTE: Scorpion character available now to Season Pass holders; Available 6/11 for purchase)
- Fixed issues where the game camera was obscured during Batgirl’s Supermove when the opponent was in a corner
- Human players can now correctly perform a wakeup on the first available frame
- General Online Stability Improvements
- Adjusted Frame Data for Block Advantage on Multiple Hit Moves
- Additional Miscellaneous Frame Data Fixes
Character Balance Improvements
- With the “release check” option set to “on” in the controller configuration screen, we resolved an issue where The Flash would automatically perform the Sonic Pound special move when he was in the Running Man stance.
- The Flash can now enhance his Lightning Charge special move with a Meter Burn option if the opponent blocks.
- Hawkgirl’s Mace Charge attack had its block advantage reduced to -4. The Mace Charge Meter Burn is now an overhead attack and hits crouching opponents more consistently.
- Reduced the hit advantage on Killer Frost’s daggers when being performed at point blank range to +4 (from +9)
- Deathstroke’s Sword Jump now correctly works as a wakeup attack.
MK9 had 4 DLC characters, with the 4th one (Freddy K) being the best selling of the group! Obviously players wanted more DLC in MK9.— Ed Boon (@noobde) June 6, 2013
We couldn't have predicted that but as we began work on INJUSTICE we didn't want to leave people "DLC hanging" like we did on MK9.— Ed Boon (@noobde) June 6, 2013
So we were thinking, is 4 DLC characters enough to have in INJUSTICE? Hmmmm.... youtube.com/watch?v=t925Jw…— Ed Boon (@noobde) June 6, 2013
At E3 we will have INJUSTICE playing with the FIRST 4 DLC characters.— Ed Boon (@noobde) June 6, 2013
In addition to E3 we will be doing "more DLC characters". For those of you who like to dissect that sentence. All we're saying is that...— Ed Boon (@noobde) June 6, 2013
I can safely say that the choice of the additional DLC character (or characters) came from player requests!— Ed Boon (@noobde) June 6, 2013
INJUSTICE is going to be featured on "a TV show" next week where they will officially announce the 4th DLC character.— Ed Boon (@noobde) June 6, 2013
Why do we fight?
Some of us fight for fun. Some for competition. Some to settle scores.
As gamers...as fighters...we carry a stigma that we are rooted in violence...that what we love to do...to fight...breeds violence.
Its time to destroy that stigma.
For 24 hours, on June 22nd 8am EST to June 23rd 8am EST we will drop the beef, the drama, and the politics. We will stand together and do what we love to do...we will fight...to raise money for charity.
We will be #FightingForACause
Join us on the KombatNetwork stream as we talk, play games (fighting and non-fighting) as we support the National Multiple Sclerosis Society and Families of SMA(Spinal Muscular Atrophy) for a full 24 hours.
Viewers are welcome to support with monetary donations which can be made directly to the organization. Donation pages will be created for the event with links that will be promoted throughout the broadcast, as well as donating directly to the KombatNetwork paypal which will be made available for gift donations to be distributed to the charities following the stream.
Our successful formula is based heavily on our Donation Matches. This gives our viewers the ability to play donation matches against the players who are at the stream in an online match in the game of their choice. Usually, MK9, Injustice, MK1/2/3, but we always let people play the games they want to play against the players that are there.
The pricing structure for donation matches:
Best 2 out of 3:$5
First to 5: $10
First to 10: $20
We accommodate both systems as best we can. MK9, Injustice and the classic MK games are all ready and available on PS3 and 360. AE is available on both systems as well.
Hosted by 995Phil, along with Co-hosts REO and Tom Brady, with special guests to appear as well.
We are expecting:
CDJr - accepting donation match challenges
JamessMK - will be accepting donation match challenges in MK1/2 and possibly UMK3
SweetJohnnyCage - will be doing a special Legend of Zelda: A Link To The Past speed run for us(6pm Saturday)
