Yeah I'm gonna put it out there, I feel that the season pass was falsely advertised. They should have let it be known that the DLC characters weren't going to be available, which in turn would have allowed people to save their money. I'm pi**ed off, very, are you? This was a deceptive advertisement, and those who purchased the season pass should be angry.

Um... do you know what a Season Pass is? Because if you thought they were going to announce all the characters at once I'm guessing you don't know what it is exactly.

Oh, and they were supposed to announce the first character yesterday but they postponed it because of the tragic events that took place during the Boston Marathon.

I do , but they said that 4 characters would be available when you purchase the season pass which is a vague statement and misleading. Do you understand that?

what do you get with the season pass? I always avoid those. I also stop pre-ordering, now its just turned into a cheap method for getting DLC that should have been included in the game anyway

Also why would you want DLC on the day of release. I'd just be annoyed the DLC wasn't included in the game. If DLC is released the same day as the game its a crock. Don't give me game space issues, if it is a space issue just include it as a free download. Separating portions on the game already available on the disk or already available for the game prior to release isn't an honest business practice. DLC is stuff I'd hope is being developed post release.

Dude, a Season Pass is like pre-ordering DLC. None of the DLC you "get" from a Season Pass is going to be instantly available. In fact, it's likely some of those characters aren't even finished yet (or at least I hope so, since I loathe on-disc DLC).

Many would be wise to follow in your footsteps, I should have went with my first mind. Honestly the game is cool , but I'm not gonna give two flying f**ks about playin in a different character skins next week. I feel like we have been scammed and enticed.

Smash , nothing personal against you, but when you advertise a product, you advertise it correctly. I mean why would you advertise selling a chevy without the wheels, only to tell the buyers that, well, we are gonna send you a wheel next month and the rest are coming sometime later, no definite when. That's crazy man , and that is exactly what has happened here. The season pass was sold with 4 DLC shapes and when people saw this they bit like fish. they wer sold a false dream!

... why would you expect it? Seriously, when I got the season pass, I assumed that I wouldn't be getting the DLCs until over the summer, at the very least. That's just the way it is: it's the option of "owning" the DLC before it's available, meaning you'll pay less when it actually does come out. It was not falsely advertised.

My only issue is that I can't input my code for the Red Son pre-order, but it looks like it's just a system overload.

It's the first day since the game came out and you expected to get four dlc's all at once cause you bought the season pass? Someone is a candidate for the Darwin award.

I didn't know what a season pass was, so I bought it think you'd get the 4 characters right away. Somebody misinformed me saying that the characters will be playable on the launch date. It might have been from Injustice or someone on CV, idk. But I do feel cheated, just because Injustice didn't give enough info to people who are new to purchasing a 'season passes'.

The sales people in the gamestop store said the 4 DLC would be available, so yeah I'm hot!

This is the way Season Passes have been since they started. You can pay in advance, and you basically get four DLCs for the price of three or whatever it is.

@evilvegeta74: I see where you're coming from, man, but you're just not getting it. Its not so much a scam but rather a lack of information for some people.

Now this I kinda agree with. Maybe the definition of what a "Season Pass" is should have been made more clear, either by NetherRealm or the sites that published the news.

Either way, it's not a scam.

It honestly seems more like you didnt do your research about it than any false advertising from the company. If your clerk at wherever you bought the game told you that they would be available immediatly then either they are a douche or misinformed but once again that isnt the fault of Neatherrealms. This is how DLC season passes have always worked and nowhere in the advertisng material does it say that they would be available immediately They even have them blacked out on the flyer that probably shouldve tipped you off.

@noj: This was the first time I ever heard of Season Pass DLC, they should have informed people what Season Pass actually was, they might not have needed to because a large majority of gamers know what it is, but it would have been nice to know. I was also misinformed about the DLC because someone told me it would be released on launch date. I wish I could remember who it was, it might have been more than one person too.

I pre-ordered at gamestop, should there be a redeemable code inside my instruction guide or do I find it online about the red son package?

The issue isn't that Netherrealm or WB misinformed you. It's that you misinterpreted them.

The season pass is essentially a discount, it doesn't mean that we'll get everything off the bat. They'll announce each character one-by-one and probably try to spread the releases apart to keep people interested.

that isnt relevant to the topic at all. he's mad that the characters werent ready to play the second he downloaded the season pass.

#29 Edited by mightyrearranger (1490 posts) - - Show Bio

Season Passes are nice. For this game, I feel like I will grab all the characters just for increased diversity, so it makes sense.
Then again, if they end up going with Black Canary or Swamp Thing and their movesets are too standard/plain, I may forfeit on them and it would make buying the pass a moot point. :/

Hoping for Mirror Master or Cold, as well as Martian Manhunter and maybe Zatanna.
