    Who's getting the deluxe edition/season pass for this? I was going to but I might leave it for this month as money is tight at the moment. I'd like to play Tira but I have several characters I'm more interested in concentrating on at first.

    Going to get it down the line I think, no need to rush into grabbing the season pass. Plenty to do in the base game to keep me amused.

    Is there a story mode similar to SC1 where you travel around Renaissance Mediterranean and Europe? Because that might make it worth my while on its own.

    2 different story modes, one with normal characters and one with a created one.

    Libra of souls is the closest to the one you want.

    I'll be getting the season pass, because I'm a sucker for fighters, and this and DBFZ are basically going to be in constant rotation.

    Season passes have killed my enthusiasm for fighting games at the moment. Tekken 7 and this would have been day one but all of this fucking nonsense sapped my good will.

    If they released them at a 20 or even 30 quid price point, maybe we can talk but they can fuck themselves to be sticking that on top of a 50 quid game.

    50?

    Under 40 @ SimplyGames.

    Yeah same. Especially something like this where I'd just want to play offline and mess about.

    SC1 was great for that.

    The whole business model around fighting games has stopped me buying another one since Shite Fighter V launched.

    Well, its 45-55 on the few places ive looked, but the point still stands even if one place is selling it a few quid cheaper.

    (plus I was speaking more generally. Im definitely not buying another NRS game, for example)

    I know, I was just brushing aside that comment.

    Despite the fact I've said I'm already going to part with my money, I do agree with you. The model is bad, period. I shouldn't have to buy it twice to just get all the content.

    The roster is large enough though that you can enjoy this without the season pass.

    Brave words Nick, we will see how you do with the next Mortal Kombat. That resolve will crumble a bit!

    Im more of an Injustice kinda guy... cuz I can hold back to block (but I did put a fair few hours into MKX. Kotal Kahn 4 lyfe)

    The thing is, the model can work. Killer Instinct showed how it could/should be done if you are intent on carving the game up.

    To be fair to nrs they always put a shit load of content in their games which justifies the price, I generally don't even bother with the dlc as it takes so long to come out that I am done with the game. Capcom the worst offenders for me.

    Bought the peasant version for pc for 36. I had no interest at all, then i looked up a couple of videos the other day when Rivuzu posted about it. Then some more videos. Really looking forward to it, hopefully it launches tonight.

    Yeah, to be fair, the bog standard Injustice 2 package made vanilla SF5 look almost criminal by comparison.

    It was actually finished, for one thing.

    Although lizardman has his fighting style included in the base game here but can't be used or for cas mode. Tira is in arcade mode but can't be used unless you buy her as well.

    Both pretty shitty moves.

    I see capcom are reworking MVC infinite, I think that ship has sailed for that game now and I don't see it recovering.

    I was initially put off by the DLC characters but apparently there are only going to be 4 of them and all my favourite characters are in the base game. I don't think there are going to be endless seasons of expensive content like SFV.

    Yeah I just don't like it when 2 of them are on the retail disc.

    Yeah I do take your point and I have also just realised that whilst there is no standalone season pass available for PS4 yet, the price difference between standard and deluxe edition on psn is 25 which seems a hell of a lot for 4 characters and some armour. Presumably when sold separately it will be more like 30.

    Pretty sure he doesn't. You can make a Lizardman in CAS, but the fighting styles are just the roster.

    Including Geralt.

    Make a Witcher Lizardman.

    Compared to SFV the business model in this doesn't seem so bad.

    I've seen some complaints about only 20 characters in the base game, but as a fan of Soul Blade and SC2 they absolutely nailed the roster in this, so a high proportion of those 20 are fighters I want to put the hours in.

    @Rivuzu he appears in one of the character stories apparently.

    @Frogofdoom Yup, he does. I won't say who's... though doubt it'd spoil anything.

    BUT in terms of Lizardman fighting style, like SCIV and how it was different from Sophitias, there's nothing. Nothing unique.

    Ahh fair enough then, they may as well have included him.

    Not played one of these since 2. It's too close to red dead though for me to warrant a purchase. Maybe round Xmas. Does look pretty sweet though.

    @fuzzyducky Four characters in the Tekken season pass, plus additional cosmetics, plus a new game mode.

    edit: slap my thigh, two, you were right. My bad.
