This guide will show you how to unlock Brainiac and Darkseid in Injustice 2. These two characters are unavailable when you first boot up your copy of Injustice 2, but there is a way for you to unlock Brainiac and Darkseid. Once you have these two characters, read up on how to get Source Crystals in Injustice 2 and how to clash.
How to Unlock Darkseid
In order to unlock Darkseid in Injustice 2 you must have pre-ordered the game. Darkseid was offered as a pre-order bonus for any players wanting to get their hands on this bonus character. Thankfully, all hope is not lost and those of you who didn’t want to pre-order the game can still unlock Darkseid, as NetherRealm has a history of releasing these pre-order bonus characters later down the line.
If you didn’t pre-order Injustice 2, the only way for you to unlock Darkseid is to purchase him. Unfortunately, Darkseid is not currently available for purchase, and it means shelling out more money for a character. There’s a good chance Darkseid will become available later, but for now, those of you who didn’t pre-order will have to go without.
How to Unlock Brainiac
