Deathstroke the Terminator Coming to Injustice: Gods Among Us (Watch the Trailer Here!)
Another villain has been added to the ranks of Injustice: Gods Among Us, and it's none other than Deathstroke the Terminator. Check the clip below!
Slade Wilson (better known as just Slade to anyone who watched the animated Teen Titans) is a one eyed mercenary with the cpactiy to make most super heroes crap their pants.
He's proven himself capable of fighting off Green Lantern, Green Arrow, and the Flash, plus a few other heroes, simultaneously. Boasting abilities that include enhanced intellect, reflexes, speed, stamina, and strenght, he also has a lovely back history with both Green Arrow and Nightwing that make him a great fit for Injustice not only play-wise, but story-wise as well.
Deathstroke joins the Batman, Superman, the Flash, Cyborg, Nightwing, Wonder Woman, the Joker, Green Arrow, Green Lanten, Catwoman, Harley Quinn, and Solomon Grundy. Like Green Lantern, he was also seen (videogame speaking) in Mortal Kombat VS DC Universe.
With Deathstroke, Injustice's character count jumps to 13, meaning there's still quite a few characters yet to be announced. According to the game's presentation at this year's EVO, there will be at least 24 playable characters and 15 arenas. Boon does plan on introducing a few characters you might not expect. "With Mortal Kombat, we brought in crazy guests like Freddy Krueger. So we'll definitely want to introduce unexpected characters [via DLC] to Injustice. That'll be our strategy. It's comparable to Mortal Kombat, but being really aggressive with our DLC characters."
Injustice: Gods Among Us is "sladed" (see what I did there?) for a release on PlayStation 3, Wii U and Xbox 360 this April.
