The year in loot boxes

The empire strikes back.

The great Star Wars debacle - and I'm not talking about The Last Jedi's second act here - dominated video game headlines in the last quarter of 2017. But in truth the year was packed with depressing stories about loot boxes, so many in fact that it has at times felt like our beloved hobby was more about the chance to win a rare item than it was about the chance to play.

NetherRealm has released a gameplay video showing upcoming Injustice 2 DLC character The Atom - and it looks like the developer has nailed the superhero's look and feel.

Injustice 2 confirmed for PC

Injustice 2 is coming to PC - half a year after it launched on console.

Publisher Warner Bros. said NetherRealm's DC Universe fighting game comes out on PC via Steam and Windows Store this autumn, with an open beta set to begin on 25th October on Steam.

The PC version is developed by Polish porting specialists QLOC, which worked on the PC version of Mortal Kombat XL.

NetherRealm has yet to show off Hellboy, who is set to arrive in Injustice 2 as part of the game's Fighter Pack Two DLC, but that hasn't stopped the developer revealing a brand new character.

Hellboy is coming to Injustice 2

Next DLC also adds Black Manta and Mortal Kombat's Raiden.

Warner Bros' latest superhero fighting game Injustice 2 is branching out of the DC Comics universe with the addition of Dark Horse hero Hellboy as part of the upcoming Fighter Pack 2 DLC.

Injustice 2 review

Before you fight another player in Injustice 2, the game tells you your win odds. It's a slightly disconcerting thing to be presented with just before getting stuck into yet another online ranking match. You have a four per cent chance of winning, the game often tells me. Well damn. Bit of a lost cause, this, isn't it? And then I think, this is actually a lovely little touch from the developers at NetherRealm - one of many littered throughout this bulging fighting game package.

A call to arms for the UK fighting game community

"Put aside the petty bickering and embrace a new outlook."

Deputy Editor's note: A year ago I reported on Hypespotting 5, one of the UK's biggest fighting game tournaments, after it suffered a raft of technical issues and disappointed some fans. After we ran the article I was contacted by a number of people embedded within the UK fighting game community who defended the scene and called for a deeper look. I thought now, with Hypespotting 6 taking place, it was a great time to do just that and investigate the state of the UK fighting game community.

Injustice 2 reveals first gameplay footage

Injustice 2 reveals first gameplay footage

See Supergirl, Gorilla Grodd, Aquaman and more in action.

Injustice 2 has premiered its first gameplay footage in the following trailer (captured by Gematsu based on a stream by developer NetherRealm Studios).

We get to see such characters as Gorilla Grodd, Supergirl, Red Lantern Atrocitus, Aquaman and Black Manta duke it out. Based on the end of this trailer, one wonders if Batman remembered to pack his shark repellent bat-spray. Though I guess he could always just punch one, like he did in Arkham City. (I realise that's not technically a shark, but it seems close enough to be susceptible to shark repellent, right?)

As previously revealed, Injustice 2 will let you customise your characters.

VideoWatch: 12 big games rumoured to be at E3

It's this week's Eurogamer Show.

It feels strange to say it again so soon, but E3 is nigh once more. As per usual, the rumour mill has been working full tilt in the run up to the conference, even if this year's rumours have been dominated by what won't be at the show as much as what will.

Injustice 2 announced - here's the first trailer

Warner Bros just announced Injustice 2, the next fighting game from the people behind Mortal Kombat. It's due out on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in 2017.

Warner failed to mention a PC version, which perhaps isn't surprising given the publisher's recent troubled past on the platform.

The hook with Injustice 2, which features DC superheroes and supervillains, is that you can "build and power up" the characters.
