UPDATE: The Injustice 2 Starfire release date has been set for later today by developers, NetherRealm Studios.
Fans are reporting that Starfire is now available to download on Xbox One, although it doesn’t appear that the PS4 has been updated just yet.
This should happen soon, so it’ll be worth refreshing the PlayStation Store in the coming hours.
As in the past, PS4 and Xbox One players with the Deluxe, Ultimate, or Fighter pack versions of Injustice 2 will get access to Princess Koriand’r first.
This exclusivity will last a week and will be followed by Starfire being released as a standalone fighter available to everyone on Tuesday, August 15.
NetherRealm’s development team have cautioned that Starfire is a beginners charater, meaning she has a smaller moveset.
The design of Starfire is also meant to make pulling off combos more straightforward, as well as using her energy weapons and spin attacks.
Many were expecting the details to be announced tonight during the Watchtower Twitch stream event.
But it appears that the Injustice 2 Starfire release date may have been revealed early.
A new post on the official PlayStation website lists the DLC Fighter launch as happening tomorrow, August 8.
Other details supplied on the blog post confirms that the first week will see Starfire released only to those who own the special versions of the game, followed by a general launch next week.
It’s unclear if this information has been confirmed early, the official Injustice 2 Twitter page has yet to post the release date.
A new live stream event is being planned for Starfire, who will be the third DLC character released by NetherRealm Studios.
More on Starfire’s main moveset and strengths will be shown off on Twitch, with the Watchtower event scheduled to kick off at around 9pm, BST.
This can be found on the official Injustice 2 Twitch channel, with fans hoping that more DLC teases could also be revealed.
Last month NetherRealm showed off Starfire gameplay for the first time during San Diego Comic-Con.
Footage showed her floating, flying around and creating weapons and projectiles out of green energy.
The description for the video on YouTube said: “As the next Queen of Tamaran, Princess Koriand’r found herself the victim of her fratricidal sister’s vengeful plot that resulted in their planet being conquered.
“Now a royal exile on Earth, Koriand’r uses her ability to absorb and convert ultraviolet energy as Starfire.”
The fourth fighter being added to the game looks to be Black Manta, following a Reddit user posting an image from the Xbox Store.
A tagline from the screenshot advertises playing as Black Manta in Injustice 2, which would fit in nicely with recent reports suggesting just that.
If Black Manta is added to the game in the future, it will be as part of the new DLC Fight Pack 2, which has yet to be revealed by Netherrealm Studios.
