Injustice Gods Among Us: General Zod Gameplay (Conan O'Brien)

Image
We had already heard rumors that General Zod would be joining Injustice Gods Among Us . The release was stated to coincide with the new Superman: Man of Steel Movie . Well it turns out that rumor is now confirmed as a small trailer was released on Conan O'Brien's shows yesterday. After the release of the Scorpion it was confirmed by the developers that additional characters would be released after the 4 already confirmed for the Season Pass. If you have the game then you also know there is space on the screen for 4 additional characters. Does this mean a second Season Pass? Lets hope so. The next rumored DLC is for Martian Manhunter who made a special appearance at the end of Scorpion's Trailer . Who else is on the block is unsure but lets hope it's not another member of the Bat family. General Zod will be downloadable this July, and of course Season Pass holders will have access first.
