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.

Bandai Namco has confirmed that the Tekken Shop in the upcoming Tekken 8 will offer a mix of paid and free content. Premium items will be purchasable using a currency known as Tekken Coins. The Tekken Shop will undergo monthly updates, with the developer emphasizing that the intention is to enhance the competitive fighter with new customization items rather than solely for financial gain. However, there is no reason why it cannot be both.

Revealed in a recent Tekken Talk Live stream, chief producer Yasuda Esports shared some of the upcoming features for the Tekken Shop, seemingly aiming to address any potential criticism proactively. “It has been reported that certain individuals may experience an adverse response upon encountering the term’shop”; however, the focus remains on enhancing the game by introducing new customization options to maintain its appeal.”

According to Mr. Esports, the format will be similar to Tekken 7, and the focus is on improving the game experience rather than just making a profit.

Do you think Bandai Namco is establishing the Tekken Shop to maintain the game’s appeal, generate revenue from microtransactions, or perhaps a combination of both? Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments section below.
