One of DC’s oldest sorcerers just moved from cameo to playable fighter status for the upcoming Injustice 2.
Earlier today, Netherrealm Studios and WB Games released a brand new gameplay trailer for Injustice 2, this time featuring new fighter Dr. Fate. Depending on the point of reference within the DC universe, Dr. Fate is either a title passed through a lineage of characters, a hired smuggler, a hero simultaneously controlled by multiple souls, the widow of a deceased Dr. Fate, or most recently an Egyptian-American medical student.
Though he and the Tower of Fate are limited to cameos within Injustice: Gods Among Us and the companion comic, Dr. Fate and all of his spectral abilities are in full-force in the new gameplay trailer below. Portrayed by character Kent Nelson in Injustice 2, the masked sorcerer wields an Ankh in battle and possesses the abilities of super-strength, telekinesis, elemental manipulation and more; the Ankh itself also acts as a portal into a pocket-dimension containing the souls of previous Dr. Fates.
Injustice 2 will release for the Xbox One and PS4 on 5/16.
