Warner Bros. Interactive and NetherRealm Studios have released a new gameplay trailer for Injustice 2. The video takes a closer look at Captain Cold; his moves, combos special attacks and ungodly cold puns. His main tool is his Cold Gun which he uses to incapacitate his enemies.
Now, I know what you’re all thinking: Who the heck is Captain Cold? Well, he is Flash’s version of Mister Freeze, to put it bluntly. Except for the emotional origin story. Ravishing, I know. NetherRealm Studios has stated before that they wanted to include a few less-well-known characters in Injustice 2, and it seems that they’re keeping true to their word.
Cringe-inducing cold puns aside, the trailer serves as a pretty decent introduction to Captain Cold in Injustice 2. Unsurprisingly, the majority of his moves rely heavily on his Cold Gun. However, the interesting part is the many ways that he can use the gun to his advantage. There’s the obvious, offensive use. The gun can shoot ice projectiles, but it can also freeze opponents, either with a direct hit or by the opponent touching the icy residue on the floor.
However, direct attacks aren’t the only way to go. The gun can also create a wall of ice for protection. You can create a platform mid-air to avoid getting hit. Finally, Captain Cold uses the gun to propel himself and slam into the opponent.
His most powerful move is just a flurry of different ice blasts while building an ice ramp, then slamming down a huge chunk of ice onto the enemy. Check out the video to see for yourself.
Since Captain Cold probably needs a little more introduction, here’s a snippet about him from the Injustice 2 website, showing how he’s connected to the happenings of the first game:
Sworn to ending all crime, the Regime hunted down and brutally executed every member of the Rogues, including Captain Cold’s sister. Using his skills as a thief and his iconic Cold Gun, Cold now seeks his vengeance. He’ll gladly use the Society to achieve it.
Injustice 2 comes out on May 16th, 2017 for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. It’ll also have a mobile version, available for both iOS and Android.
