Those who purchased the Halloween fatality for Mortal Kombat 1 for the amount of 1200 Dragon Crystals (pack of 1250 Dragon Crystals costs $10), will receive in the following weeks a "reparation" for the high price, criticized by the community - two additional finishers: Thanksgiving Fatality (launching this week) and Winter Fatality. At the same time, all three fatalities will go on sale as part of the Seasonal Fatalities collection, which, according to rumors, is expected to cost around $30.
Original news (October 25)
NetherRealm has released a new update for the fighting game Mortal Kombat 1. The patch is only for versions of the game available for Xbox Series S, Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5 consoles. There are a ton of changes - we cite the most important ones below.
- AI of enemies has been improved.
- Devs added network rankings to Klassic Towers mode.
- In network options, we can now enable visibility of the ping/connection indicator during gameplay.
- Added a variant of Forever King Mode to the online King of the Hill mode.
- Removed many bugs and improved gameplay balance (including weakening the overly powerful Cyrax).
- Improvements have been made to technique lists.
- The tutorial has been improved and an option to display moves during training has been added.
- Another new feature is Halloween Fatality, which has to be purchased with premium currency. Here, however, there is some confusion, because although the patch notes mention this item, it has not yet been added at the moment, so we can't say how much it will cost. It will most likely not appear until tomorrow or the day after tomorrow..
- On the other hand, a holiday-related variant of the Cage Mansion arena was given to all players for free.
- Players can now unlock access to concept arts, a soundtrack and the evening variant of the Wu Shi Academy arena through gameplay.
Mortal Kombat 1 was released on September 19 on PC and Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series S and Xbox Series X consoles.
The game was received warmly - on OpenCritic the average rating of industry media is 84%. On Steam, on the other hand, the project has 74% positive reviews.
Only the version for Nintendo Switch turned out to be a disappointment, which in terms of graphics is downright comically bad. NetherRealm is, however, trying to fix this release. The first effects of this can be seen in the patch released on October 11, which, among other things, improved the visuals, but it's still short of acceptable level.
