Injustice 2

Post by Mugsy » 13 Jun 2016, 07:17

Gameplay trailer out...



Teaser trailer for those that missed it...



On the fence with this one. Looks good but dunno if it can top the first Injustice. Quite a good singleplayer campaign in that one.

It'll be just as good.

Look at MK9 and MK10
MK10's story played a bit better than 9's.. so that's what I'm basing it off.

I don't think it could suck or be any less of Injustice 1.
This armor thing will be interesting though. If that's what you're on the fence about?

I haven't played MKX yet but I've watched the story on Youtube and I enjoyed MK9's more... maybe I'm just too big a fan of MK1 to 3.

The first Injustice's story was done really well, I'm just not sure what a sequel will bring to the story.

The fighting mechanics I'm sure will be top notch. NetherRealms have been in top form these days but for me, the singleplayer campaign is what I play their games for these days (MK vs DCU was a win for me). If I was playing for the combat alone, Soul Calibur is my game of choice... I just find the 3D arena more intuitive for some reason.

In saying that, my bro and I will generally pick Virtua Fighter 5 if we're gonna vs each other. Neither of us are good at it so it's an even playing field - lol

Ah! I'm with you now. I thought it was game mechanics or something - but story, yeah.. I find story in fighting games is kinda like pr0n, just something to set a scene before the action haha.

But I agree. Especially with this armor stuff and how it'll all tie in to the story etc

My reference to MK9 and 10 was more the mechanic, fights and story seemed to blend more seamlessly than 9.

I see... one of these days I'll have to get around to playing it. But the lack of Kombat Pack 2 on PC has turned me off getting it. They really dropped the ball with the PC port this time.

GORILLA GROD!!!!!!

That is all, I'm hyped for this but I've been burned by Nether Realms on MKX too much to pick it up straight away.

That's how I feel... and I've yet to play MKX still - lol

I'm hoping that they're working on fixing MKX on PC properly and to add in Kombat Pack 2... but I somehow don't think so.

I wonder how big this roster will be?

I enjoyed the GOTY edition of Injustice, I'll either pick this up near release or wait for another GOTY edition lol.

Yeah I too bought MK and Inj on my Steam PC and was dissapoint with lack of support... does anyone know if Inj2 will suffer the same? Do I risk getting it on PC or should I go for console?

Has it been confirmed for PC? I wouldn't be surprised if after MKX and Batman Arkham Knight that WB avoids PC ports all together. I've got the fight stick for my PC so I'd like it for PC cause those suckers are expensive and Im awful with a controller.

I'm sure it'll come to PC eventually if not straight away just like Injustice GOTY edition did.

Apparently it won't be coming to PC if this reddit post and a few other gaming news sites is to be believed:

Oh well, Injustice 1, MK9 and Ultra SF4 will have to keep me entertained on PC.

Yeah, MKX is on PC but it was released with an assortment of issues. Not sure if they ever got fixed properly as WB decided to not release Kombat Pack 2 on PC. SF5 I've forgotten about and from what I've heard, feels more like a demo. My bro doesn't mind it but I don't see him loading it up much (and he was pretty into the competitive SF scene).

Yeah MKX is on PC, the port was sub contrated out to a 3rd party dev and it was also the test subject for steams streaming install service, similary to how battle.net does it with WoW and D3 you could download a bit of the game and then play that litle part while the rest downloaded, but it was completely broken and pretty much everyone had to redownload the game, it was full of graphics bugs and other issues, the patch they released just before Jason was release had to be pulled after a few hours because it wiped your saved data if you loaded up the game before a new patch was put up a day later.

Here's a pretty decent lowdown on the upcoming June update released a few days ago:

Will just have to hold on to hope that they release it just like they did Injustice 1

Well, first they need to develop it on PC... and considering that High Voltage, who previously did the PC porting work on MK9 and Injustice (two good ports IMHO), were the ones to botch up the MKX PC port, I have my doubts they will be back.

And QLOC, who were brought in to fix High Voltage's mess, didn't do a flash job either so I doubt they will be back.

It remains to be seen if NetherRealms have grown their PC development capabilities or have found a third party developer who understands PC ports properly.

Strange that MKX PC was such a mess... all three games were built on Unreal Engine 3 but somehow, they just couldn't get things right with MKX on PC.

It's a pity Supergirl doesn't look more Melissa Benoist.

Rofl. That gameplay looks like fun.. but also a bit ridiculous.


It would be cool if Marvel jumped on this bandwagon. Their Mobile game, Contest of Champions, is quite good! Craps all over the Injustice mobile game.

There will be a Mortal Kombat cross over character and a PC port is likely to happen. I hope the cross over character is better than Scorpion was in Injustice 1, he just felt kinda sloppy to play compared to MK9, PC port will be something I wait a very long time to check out.

http://shoryuken.com/2016/06/15/ed-boon ... -and-more/

And it looks like they will have the option to play online without any of the gear, that was 1 of my main concerns with the gear stuff, still no word on micro transactions but given that they had micros transaction easy fatalities in MKX I think its a safe bet the gear will have it as well. I imagine gear won't be a thing used in tournaments so the online scene will have a large gearless section as well.
