Meanwhile, the official release date of Mortal Kombat's Sub Zero for "Injustice 2" is now confirmed. Following the launch of Red Hood DLC during E3 2017, NetherRealms Studio has now announced the launch of Sub Zero DLC happening on July 11. 

However, it is likely that the "Mortal Kombat" veteran will be playable first to "Injustice 2" players who bought the Season Pass, and later to everyone else. Red Hood DLC was first released to those who bought the Deluxe, Ultimate, or Fighter pack, and then followed by everyone else a week later.

Sub Zero was first introduced by NetherRealm Studios in a trailer fighting with the three Justice League heroes - Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman. The video showcases his ice combos, his deadly ice-blasting powers, and his new ice clone ability.

He will be the first character to crossover from the Mortal Kombat franchise but he might not be the last. NetherRealm Studio has recently teased Raiden as a silhouette in the character roster, which may also arrive next via a DLC pack for "Injustice 2".
