We found out earlier this week that Scorpion is coming to Injustice: Gods Among Us. Now we know when.
WB Games and Netherrealm Studios have confirmed that the popular Mortal Kombat character, who got a redesign from DC Comics‘ own Jim Lee – will hit the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions of the game on June 11th. The Wii U version will, in fact, be receiving all of the game’s DLC (so far, it’s gotten none) sometime this summer, but a specific date hasn’t been nailed down yet.
Scorpion‘s inclusion in Injustice: Gods Among Us should come as little surprise; a forum post claimed to have found the four DLC characters expected to be a part of Injustice a while back, and with this confirmation, that rumor is now 75% true… whether or not General Zod will join the cast is still unknown, but judging as he’s in a fairly big movie opening soon, it’s safe to assume he will.
Scorpion will cost gamers $4.99, or 400 Microsoft Points. If you bought an Injustice Season Pass (again, not available to Wii U owners), he comes free, as do Batgirl, Lobo, the unannounced fourth DLC character, and the game’s Flashpoint Skin Pack.
