Injustice: Gods Among Us DLC will include more costumes, 'no plans' for more stages

Future downloadable content for DC brawler Injustice: Gods Among Us may include more than the four additional characters initially planned, but will likely not include more battle stages, NetherRealm Studios creative director Ed Boon told Game Informer.

According to Boon, there are currently "no plans" to add additional stages to the title, and beyond the four planned characters there "isn't anything [NetherRealm] can announce" right now. However, he did not rule out the possibility of more playable characters.

"I certainly don't think I can safely say that it's four and only four," Boon said. "The DLC characters for Mortal Kombat exceeded everybody's expectations. I suppose there is a certain point in time where we can say that there won't be more. I don't think we'll be releasing DLC characters two years from now."

Boon added that new costumes will be included with each add-on character. Injustice will include more than 100 costumes, including those available through pre-order, shipped with the game and available as DLC.

"Giving people costumes is the way we can push the other content," he explained, adding that offering certain costumes for free will ensure players competing online will be running compatible content. "For instance, if you download Lobo, we want it so you can play Lobo against me, but I need to have the Lobo content on my machine for you to use him against me. The way we're going to do that is to give away costumes.

"When you get your free costumes, you'll also get the necessary content to be compatible with everyone, so there's no issue of people not having downloads," he added.

The first DLC character for Injustice: Gods Among Us will be intergalactic bounty hunter Lobo.
