The competition is scheduled for 23 August at 11:00 AM BST at Gamescom 2017. The battle will be broadcast live. You can catch it via Twitch here and here. If you are at Gamescom, you'll want to visit the Twitch stage, located in Hall 9, A-052. The platform of choice will be PlayStation 4 and the first DJ to win three mega matches will be named champion. 

Sometime during the match, the next three Injustice 2 DLC characters will be announced. The characters will be released in the Fighter Pack #2. After the match, everyone there will get a chance to get a first-hand account of the battle by Steve and Don during a Meet and Greet session.

The charity part of this: a £3.800 donation will be made to the Aoki Foundation, founded by Steve Aoki with the primary goal of finding advances in brain science through funding research in regenerative medicine and brain preservation. The foundation also supports humanitarian causes dear and near to Steve Aoki such as disaster relief, developmental disabilities, and animal-rights.

Injustice 2 is currently available for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
