Swamp Thing showcases his very threatening range and tools in these 12 minutes of gameplay

Not too long ago, Swamp Thing was announced for Injustice 2. Since then, we haven't had the chance to see much gameplay from him outside of his trailer.

IGN has uploaded 12 minutes of matches, all involving Swamp Thing, in Injustice 2. While these matches aren't exactly high level matches, they do reveal quite a bit about Swamp Thing's playstyle.

Based on the matches, Swamp Thing looks like a very mean footsies and mix up based character. It looks like it will be pretty difficult to out-space a skilled Swamp Thing player.

We get a good look at some of Swamp Thing's attacks. He appears to have a multi-hitting move to deal with armored attacks, and an attack that re-stands the opponent so that he doesn't have to deal with pesky invincible wake up attacks.

Injustice 2 gets 'Shattered Alliances - Part 1' story trailer, Cyborg officially shown

Injustice 2 just got a fresh new story trailer out, which gives more insight into the continuing conflict between Batman and Superman, as well as the various heroes and villains on each's side.

Besides this, we also get our first official look at Cyborg, who was previously leaked via some footage of the game's mobile version.

Here are some images from the trailer.

Captain Cold and Mr. Freeze are both likely headed to Injustice 2 based on the roster leak, but how will they differ from each other, if at all?

I previously wrote a piece on how Poison Ivy and Swamp-Thing could use the same general purpose for two entirely different characters prior to their official reveals, and this time, we're going to take a quick look at Captain Cold and Mr. Freeze, both of whom are present on the increasingly accurate leak list from December.

At first, the two characters seem awfully similar, since both have cold and ice as their gimmick, and they actually both use some sort of gun to fire freezing beams, but is there potential to have them as different characters, and not just have one be a premium skin for the other?

Nothing can be said for sure just yet, but you can find my thoughts on the matter below.

Nearly 2 million matches played and a lot of appearances from Dex-Starr - here are some stats from Injustice 2's online beta

Ran from January 24th to February 21st, the Injustice 2 beta allowed NetherRealm Studios and Warner Bros. to gather data and help better develop the game's online experience. While most of that information is very likely meant for internal use only, the game's official Twitter account did share some interesting statistics now that the beta is closed.

The following infographic was released earlier today and gives us a look at numbers such as how many matches were played during the beta period, total pieces of gear dropped, and even how many times Dex Starr made an appearance on screen.

And to whomever played 3,081 matches... I tip my hat to you.

Check out the stats below.

NRS-Lanny notes in the statement that the testing period has provided the company with a lot of useful data that will help shape the game's online modes.

The Flash and Cyborg super moves shown in Injustice 2 mobile

Recent footage of the Injustice 2 mobile game have given us potential glimpses at what we can expect to see in its console counterpart.

So far, we've seen characters such as Scarecrow, The Flash, Cyborg, and Green Lantern playable, and we've even seen super moves for two of the previously mentioned fighters. Today, we see supers for the other two.

Footage showing The Flash and Cyborg's powerful attacks has surfaced on YouTube. Cyborg seems to knock his opponent into another dimension, while The Flash uses his speed to land a barrage of strikes his foe never saw coming.

While we can't say for sure that these will be exactly the same if these characters are added to the console roster, it surely isn't beyond the scope of possibility.

To check out both supers, be sure to hit the jump.

'Playing on American servers from the UK, almost every connection I’ve had has been superb' - Ketchup and Mustard on Injustice 2's netcode

The Injustice 2 beta has been available to many players for quite some time now. Unfortunately, not everybody has had the opportunity to try the beta for themselves and Netherrealm themselves have confirmed that the beta will be ending soon.

I decided to reach out to PND|Ketchup and PND|Mustard and ask about their opinions of the Injustice 2 beta and their future hopes. Both players are known for being professional players and commentators for NRS games.

I've seen a lot of concerns from the community that Injustice 2 is not different enough from its predecessor. While my own experience from the beta has been telling me otherwise, I wanted to ask players like Ketchup and Mustard on their opinions on the matter.

This is a joint interview. I'm talking to Ketchup and Mustard at the same time during this interview.

SonicFox and Slayer showcase high level play for Black Canary and Superman in this very close FT10 Injustice 2 beta set

FOX|SonicFox and YOMI|Slayer recently had a first to 10 set within the Injustice 2 beta. This showcased high level play with both Black Canary and Superman for the beta while commentated by PND|Ketchup and PND|Mustard.

Despite Black Canary being the newest character released for the beta, SonicFox has been showcasing the character's capabilities really well throughout the beta. Off of just a D1 (crouching light) conversion, Black Canary is able to perform some pretty devastating combos.

While Slayer's playstyle was wisely mostly consisting of zoning SonicFox out with Superman's lasers, he also showcased a pretty nifty conversion.

Swamp Thing is a zoner/grappler hybrid with an interesting projectile, multiple command throws, and more in Injustice 2 - IGN shares impressions

Swamp Thing is one of the most recent characters revealed as playable in Injustice 2. The announcement brought us a quick gameplay trailer, but we haven't heard much else about the towering, vegetative giant.

Luckily, IGN's own Vince Ingenito managed to get hands-on time with Injustice 2's new combatant.

In the write up, we learn that Swamp Thing has grappler-esque qualities, but mixes some zoning into his play-style. From a distance, he can use his Vine Grab command throw to scoop up unsuspecting opponents from as far as almost full-screen away.

On the zoning end of things, his Log Kick projectile can help pressure opponents into making the wrong move using its deceptive travel speed to bewilder foes. It starts out fast, but continues to slow down as it moves across the stage until it comes to a complete stop.

A new super for Green Lantern? Scarecrow's super? The Injustice 2 mobile game may have given us a sneak peak at GL's and Scarecrow's super

While we haven't had the opportunity to see Green Lantern in action yet for Injustice 2, we do know for sure that he is in the game thanks to the announcement of the Jon Stewart skin for Green Lantern.

Recently, we saw gameplay of Green Lantern, Scarecrow, and Cyborg within the Injustice 2 mobile game. It seems likely that the Green Lantern in the mobile game shares many animations from his console counterpart.

Through the mobile game, we are now able to see Green Lantern's super move. It's not known if this super will be the same in the console version of Injustice 2.

We're not sure if Scarecrow will be apart of the Injustice 2 roster yet, but if the leaked list is anything to go by then it seems like this will be the case. We get a glimpse of his super from the mobile game as well.

Scarecrow, Cyborg, and Green Lantern headed to Injustice 2? First footage of the mobile game features all three alongside current console characters

The first footage that we've seen of Injustice 2's mobile game surfaced today, and the nearly 13 minute clip gives us a legitimate glimpse at what to expect from the app.

What's interesting, though, is the inclusion of a handful of characters that have not yet been revealed for the console version -- Scarecrow, Cyborg, and Green Lantern, specifically. We did see the confirmation of Green Lantern as playable last month, however, as one of the premier alternate skins is specifically designed for him.

The gallery below contains screenshots of these three characters, showing them in-game and on what appears to be the character select screen.

Though the first Injustice mobile game had characters exclusive to the app, all three fighters can be seen on the console version's potential leak list, which has been correct with each reveal so far.

At this time, we can't say that Scarecrow and Cyborg will be playable on consoles, but it does seem like there's a good chance.

You can check out the Injustice 2 mobile gameplay footage below.
