    Skullgirls: Second Encore content that was previously exclusive to the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita releases will soon be available on Windows, Mac, and Linux through Steam on the 13th of April this year. Through a purchasable expansion, you will gain access to features such as voiced story mode, trials, survival mode, and challenges.


    In addition, this package also contains all of the previously released downloadable content available for Skullgirls including each of the characters added since release as well as the expanded color palette selections for every character. However, be aware that there will not be a price reduction for the package if you are already in possession of the DLC. Those who own the DLC prior to purchasing the second encore content will be getting a discount.

    To make up for this, the Second Encore Upgrade will be available for $10 USD for a week following its release, and will later be priced at $15 after this period ends. For one third of the price of purchasing each DLC individually, you will gain access to all of the DLC in addition to the many new features that were previously offered solely on consoles.

      It might have something to do with how you got the DLC. I've had it all from the IGG, and don't see the discount, anyone else? How about those of you who only have DLC from when it was free but didn't buy any?

      Same, all my DLC was automatic - I assume from the IGG campaign.

      Based on asking a few others on the sale prices they got, I believe the discount doesn't to apply to IGG owners.

      Discount only applies if you *purchased* DLC I think.
      I got all mine for free and only got the 33% discount, but again its just $2.50 so I don't care.
      Anyways, when can we expect the patch with the content? Whenever Mike gets up?

      Science time! I have some spare DLC in my gift library. Does somebody who has DLC but doesn't have the discount want to add me on Steam so I can give you a Squigly and see if you get the discount?

      [EDIT] I just realized this plan probably won't work- Steam probably won't give you the discount just for having the item in your gift library, as that way you could grab the old DLC, use the discount, and give the old DLC to someone else, gaming the system. And you can't activate a spare copy of the old DLC if you already have it. Steam probably checks your purchase history for DLC ownership, that could explain why some people aren't getting the discount.

      Same here. IGG Backer with 33% discount. If it can't be fixed, I'm cool with that, but I might as well hold out for the time being just in case.

      Ah that was my second guess. I as well got all the DLC from IGG.

      as a non-IGG backer, how did DLC distribution for you guys work? I have all the DLC but i got it for free (preorder bonus for the color pack and squigly, then i got all the other DLC in the free period), but through steam (i.e. its in my purchase history jk because I didn't use a purchase method it doesn't show in my purchase history and if I had to guess I would bet this is why its not working) and I do not have the extra discount.

      KaboomKid Sure would be nice. ...TUNA FISH!

      Whenever the content was released, my copy of the game would automatically get it and install it, so I can understand the system never marking a "purchase" from my end. I figure non-Backers that got it during the free period, who had to push the button, should at least have something recorded on Valve's end though.

      Will gift this to a friend of mine. I bought him SG Encore, might as well get him the Definitive Edition 2nd Encore update. I'll get it for myself next week(Friday) when I get paid again.

      I already have 2nd Encore on my PS Vita, so I can wait at least one extra week.

      just checking in, yeah, as an IGG backer, my upgrade is showing as priced as $10 rather than $7.50

      but since i heard its being looked into, I'm not worrying too much.

      could be just the lobbies acting up. But really the DLC shouldn't matter when playing online with other people.

      There might be something weird going on with Steam in general. Today I suddenly had like, a bajillion games wanting to update.

      It's still going actually. There are about 60 items queued up in my library. No patch notes associated with any of them, and some games updating that have never needed any patches at all. At first I thought it might have been associated with getting me that 17% discount, but nope. Just a lot of weird stuff.

      EDIT: Been looking into it. Apparently it's all some kind of massive Steam update dealing with .NET Framework and Redist files...vcredist/directx/Dotnet...not sure if this is messing with anyone's games online, but it's apparently happening to a ton of people right now.

      ...not sure. All we do is make the build and put it up. We tested online Win/Lin and Lin/Mac. After that it's up to Steam...

      Steam is being weird. A lot of people are having trouble with their items suddenly having tons of 0-byte updates or something. I don't know if it's related, but some other people and I are getting a weird 500 error on trying to access our games lists on Steam. It could explain "version mismatch" if Steam keeps thinking people need to update.

      US igg player here, I've got all the dlc and I'm only seeing 33%. If there's nothing you can do about that I'll deal with it, it's not like it's a huge difference, I've just bought the game so many times...

      I don't mind about upgrade, I don't mind that I'm the backer. But when the upgrade broken, I suffer.

      Could you be more specific? How is it broken? Are you talking about the discount not working?

      We are not trying to screw over or disrespect anyone - especially our backers and loyal supporters - here. We pushed for the loyalty discount at the last minute when it became clear that it was an option, and we have no control over fixing the issue of who gets the discount and who doesn't. All we can do is urge Valve to fix it ASAP.

      It's not in a different language, that's how it is for everyone. It's fancy talk it's meant to be a joke.
