Transformers: The Last Knight, the fifth film in the inordinately loud and explode-y robot film series, has officially made its theatrical debut.

Injustice 2: Sub-Zero DLC Set for July Release Date

Sub-Zero in Mortal Kombat

NetherRealm Studios’ Ed Boon reveals the exact date Mortal Kombat regular Sub-Zero will be available in Injustice 2. When the DC fighting game Injustice 2 was released across platforms in May, despite a pretty full roster of existing DC heroes, hype was already building for those extra characters you would be able to download at a later date. This was teased just prior to its release with trailers depicting characters in the so-called Fighter Pack 1. The three new fighters consisted of Starfire, Red Hood, and Sub-Zero, and whilst Koriand’r and Jason Todd are well-known DC characters and natural fits to the arena, the ice-cold ninja is the “novelty” ingredient and one of the …
