Where is the free character for November?
« on: December 01, 2014, 05:47:59 pm »
Hey all, just wanted to give an update here.

As some of you are aware we've talked about doing free updates with more content as long as people are playing the game online, and had previously stated that the first character will be available in November. You're probably also aware we haven't added said character to the game yet, so what gives?

Super Short version: The character is done, but after our last update Microsoft found some issues with the game and are asking us to fix them as part of our next update. It's taken longer than we had hoped to get this issue addressed and this has pushed out the date for the new character. We could release it on Steam/Sony platforms early, but I don't think that's fair to the people that bought it on XBox One so we won't be doing that. We're working as fast as we can on this stuff, and I regret telling you guys November in hindsight, so if you're super bummed out about this news I'm sorry, we screwed up on this one.

-Dave

Seems like every fighting game fan has ideas for their own fighting game!

Wait, you mean to tell me that this new character update which is totally free and simply adds to the game I already have a blast playing is going to be released sometime soon instead of being out already?

How dare you!?

You truly are history's worst monster, Dave Lang.

For real, though, take your time and don't sweat it.

Remember what Shigeru Miyamoto said:

"A delayed character update is eventually good, a bad character update is bad foerver."

I'm pretty sure that's how it went.

I think Kurt Colbain said that, not Shiggy.

Wait.  No.  It was Cloud Strife.

Nah, fuck that, it was Kevin Bacon.

Personally, I have no complaints about this. I rather want you guys to fix and tweak and take your time before you release the character.

I DO want to see a presentation of this new character on IG stream though :P.
