Skullgirls Encore on Xbox 360 awaiting compatibility pack for bug fixes

Skullgirls on Xbox 360 is in the middle of making the transition to Skullgirls Encore, but a new title update's arrival has left the game in a nearly-unplayable state, since the accompanying compatibility pack is currently running through Microsoft.


After a successful crowdfunding campaign and a change in publisher, Skullgirls Encore is now pumping out content in earnest for both PC and PS3. Unfortunately, the Xbox 360 version of the game is still waiting to make the formal transition to Encore. Worse yet, a new title update arrived on Friday and has left the game in a nearly-unplayable state. The solution is a compatibility pack that's currently in Microsoft's hands.

One of the caveats of the initial publisher switch was that the Xbox 360 version of Skullgirls would require a title update and a mandatory compatibility pack. Lab Zero released the title update on Friday, but unfortunately, the compatibility pack (meant to release concurrently) is currently being held up by Microsoft. Without the compatibility pack, the game has reverted to its original pre-update state and is suffering from sluggish load times.

"So far, only the Title Update has been released by Microsoft," reads the Skullgirls Facebook page (via Siliconera). "We're not sure when the Compatibility Pack DLC will come out, but we hope it's soon."

Once the compatibility pack arrives, Lab Zero will begin focusing on catching up with previously-released DLC content.

Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?
