Ed Boon: Injustice DLC will not be on-disc, all downloadable - new system in development to push content on to consoles In an interview with Euro Gamer, Ed Boon discussed various topics involving Injustice: Gods Among Us. Boon is currently working on a new system that will push all downloadable content on to player's consoles.


Whenever Injustice is played online it will download the information needed so that players without the DLC characters will be able to play against those who have them.
"In Mortal Kombat we had downloadable characters," NetherRealm boss Ed Boon told Eurogamer. "We want to come up with a way to push all that information onto people's machines so if I buy some character that was available for download, you would have it on your machine and I would be able to fight against you online.

"We're coming up with a great automated system to make sure I can use my character against anybody and everything's compatible."
Boon also confirmed that all downloadable content will not be on-disc. Instead, all content will be downloadable and implemented via the aforementioned system.

"All of the DLC stuff will be downloadable," Boon confirmed. "We're not going to have it on the disc already and you unlock it. We want to make sure we get it onto people's machines."

Lastly, due to complaints about severe lag when Mortal Kombat was released, Boon assured that an optimized netcode for Injustice is in the works.

"Every game we try to look back and see what could have been better," he said. "We're optimising our network code. For the inputs being sent back and forth we have a new, more elaborate system. And then we also have more things where groups of people participate in more of a round robin, and there's a meta-game in there. There's a lot of cool stuff coming for online."
