Injustice 2 Artist Shares Unused Concept Art For Krypto The Superdog, Mr. Freeze, And More

Injustice 2 had a large cast out of the gate and even more were added post-release, but the well of DC characters (and even non-DC characters) is deep, so there were plenty of characters that were conceived that didn't make the cut.

Concept artist Justin Murray, who worked on the game, recently shared art for some of those unused characters as well as art for other aspects of the game. You can find all the art on Murray's portfolio website right here to see images of Kryto the Superdog, Mr. Freeze, Constantine, Blue Bird, Etrigan, Detective Chimp, and assorted Darkseid monsters for an idea of what those characters would have looked like had they made an appearance.

Guardians Get Ready For Festival of The Lost In Destiny 2: Forsaken

Bungie has begun to outline all the new masks and goodies guardians can expect for this year’s Festival of the Lost. 

Hosted by the shipwright Amanda Holliday, this year’s Festival of the Lost will begin on October 16 and will include new masks and rewards, as well as new bounties. Principal among them, for a limited time, players will be able to venture into the Haunted Forest to cleanse it of as many ghouls and demons as they can in under 15 minutes. But be warned – the farther players delve, the more challenging enemies become. Players will have access to the Haunted Forest when the festival begins, and can take it on solo, with a fireteam or via matchmaking.

In addition to the Haunted Forest, guardians will be called upon to solve the mystery and avenge the death of the fallen Master Ives who’s been murdered by some unknown killers. The new questline will add “an additional powerful reward for you to earn each week.” The search for Master Ives' killers begins October 30.

Watch 37 Minutes Of Gameplay From Thronebreaker: The Witcher Tales

Thronebreaker: The Witcher Tales started out as the single-player campaign for Gwent: The Card Game, but has since morphed into its own stand-alone title. Gwent, the surprisingly popular competitive card game designed for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, pits two players representing rival political factions against each other. The game began as a side activity for players taking a break from monster hunting, but, due to overwhelming fan interest, Gwent soon took on a life of its own.

Thronebreaker: The Witcher Tales will include a detailed story supported by the competitive card game's mechanics. Not sure what a narrative-driven game built around Gwent looks like? You can check out a whole bunch of gameplay below.

 Thronebreaker: The Witcher Tales releases October 24 for PC and the console launch will come later on December 4. You can read up on our coverage of the game's initial release announcement here.
