List confirms a previously unannounced character.
Injustice 2 is just a few weeks away, and now we have a list of achievements, courtesy of Xbox Achievements. There are 62 separate achievements for Injustice 2, totaling 1000 points.
This isn’t a huge surprise – and neither are some of the achievements, which include things like beating the story mode and playing a certain number of online matches. But the list also includes a number of character-specific achievements, like “beat character x while being character y and using move z,” and this has led to the reveal of a character that, until now, was not confirmed for the game.
This is the part where I toss in a large bold SPOILER WARNING for what you’re going to see below this strategically placed story trailer.
So yea, it’s the Joker. Two achievements involve him – in one titled “I Love You, I Hate You” players have to defeat the Joker as Harley, with the final hit coming from Go Night Night. The second is “Why Aren’t You Laughing,” and you have to defeat Batman as the Joker, with the final hit coming from Not So Funny Is It?
This likely isn’t a surprise – the Joker is a popular character and his inclusion has been speculated about, however this is official confirmation.
Injustice 2 is set to release on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on May 16.
