When Injustice 2 released back in May this year, Marco called it “the pinnacle of fighting games” in his review. Since then, I’ve spent a tonne of time in the game and I couldn’t agree more. It isn’t the awesome story and the thrilling combat that keeps me playing, but instead, after over 50 hours with the game, it is all about the loot. Injustice 2’s loot system is so robust and so incredibly addictive that it will scratch that Diablo itch, and then some.
That is why the issue reportedly being caused by the game’s latest update (patch 1.10) is so devastating. In short, don’t download and install the patch on your respective gaming platforms, as there is a chance you might lose all your hard-earned loot.
The update went live on 26 September and since then, hundreds of players have been reporting the issue and complaining on both Reddit and NeoGAF. Now, the developer has issued a statement on the WB Support Forums, acknowledging the issue and giving a somewhat strange solution:
“We’re aware that some players who downloaded the most recent Injustice 2 patch are missing Gear they have earned. For those affected by this issue – please try and reboot the game after installing the patch.
This should recover any Gear earned before 9/25. If you earned gear after 9/25 that was not restored, the
Judging by the comments on Reddit, a restart doesn’t seem to work for most. Further, when the update is installed, the game needs to automatically restart anyway and it would be strange if all these players never even closed and opened the game again. Hopefully, players will all get their gear back, as some pieces take hours, or even days to acquire, so if the issue isn’t sorted out, it would be a devastating loss of gameplay time and rare loot.
