Injustice 2 Finally Planned for a PC Release, Complete with Open Beta

Injustice 2

When Injustice 2 released earlier this year, gamers noticed it was missing something very important: a PC version. Well, Warner Bros. and NetherRealm Studios are rectifying this problem with a PC release of the game.

According to a press release (which for some reason I can’t find, so all information is coming from second hand, albeit reliable, sources), Injustice 2 will receive a PC version at a later, unspecified date. However, gamers can download a demo version of the game starting tomorrow, October 25th, and participate in an open beta. This demo version will only be available on Steam, and the Injustice 2 page hasn’t even been posted as of writing this article, so I cannot comment on the beta’s system requirements.

Aside from the existence of the beta, the only thing we know about the PC version of the game is it’s being developed by QLOC, the studio behind the PC port of Mortal Kombat X. Many PC gamers might recall that the PC version of that game was less than ideal, if not downright horrible — not Batman: Arkham Knight bad, but still a slap in the face of PC gamers. Well, QLOC was the studio that fixed the PC port of Mortal Kombat X. It also worked on DMC: Devil May CryStreet Fighter IV, and Resident Evil 4 Ultimate HD Edition, so Injustice 2 is in seemingly good hands.

Injustice 2 isn’t the first time a NetherRealm Studios game was released on console before PC. The previous game, Injustice: Gods Among Us, was also released for consoles long before it found its way to the PC as Injustice: Gods Among Us Ultimate Edition, which contained all available DLC. While I might be counting my chickens before they hatch, I would not be surprised if the PC version of Injustice 2 comes with all DLC, but that would mean the port probably won’t come out until after the console versions receive the last DLC characters. We will just have to watch and see.

All you have to do to get my attention is talk about video games, technology, anime, and/or Dungeons & Dragons - also people in spandex fighting rubber suited monsters.

Ten million people play The First Descendant in its first week

The free-to-play shooter The First Descendant has gotten a lot of attention in its first week. The game’s publisher, Nexon, says that 10 million people have already tried it out.

Insider Gaming pointed out that since there is no cost up front, it’s still too early to tell how many of those players will stick around, but it’s still a big number for a new IP. On Steam alone, it peaked at 264,860 concurrents right after launch and has still managed to break 200,000 in the last 24 hours, so it looks like a lot of people are still really into the game.

It was a “mindless and repetitive grind,” and we gave The First Descendant a 3/10 in our review. Of course, that’s just one opinion; other experts have had different ones. Most people, though, say that the game’s annoying free-to-play model is the worst thing about it.

Are you one of the millions of people who played The First Descendant last week? Are you going to come back for more? Leave a comment below and let us know.

Raiden, the famous shmup series, will come back as a twin-stick shooter on PS5, PS4, and PC

Raiden has a long and interesting history as a vertical shooter in arcades. However, the series is going to get a Super Stardust HD makeover, which means it will switch to a twin-stick format. It comes out in Japan on October 31. There’s no word yet on when it will come out in the West, but we wouldn’t be surprised if it did.

A Gematsu translation of the game’s website says that the full version will have an arcade mode with up to six stages. There will also be an “Unlimited” option for people who want to be at the top of the rankings. It sounds like a pretty straightforward package in terms of what’s inside, but we think the action will be what makes it worth it.

There’s a trailer up top that should help you figure out what to expect. There are, however, different versions of Raiden 3, Raiden 4, and Raiden 5 that you can play right now on the PS5 and PS4, if you can’t wait for this game to come out in the West.
