February 6, 2015Written by Mark Labbe


A flurry of Mortal Kombat X news has come out recently, including information on different game modes and some pricey collector’s editions. Adding to pile of info are some hints of three new characters and the possibility of micro-transactions.

Apparently, the Living Towers mode has some special mods named after both Cyrax and Rain, hinting that the two fighters may be in the game. Meanwhile, Kitana description of her “Mournful” variation has possibility revealed that fact that the assassin Jade will be in the game, considering that the description directly refers to her. Whether or not these characters will be in the upcoming fighter has not yet been confirmed, but it seems likely.

Another thing that seems fairly likely is the possibility of micro-transactions. Talking with IGN, NetherRealm Studios Marketing Manager Brian Goodman let slip that the company was not “yet” prepared to discuss micro-transactions, hinting that they could be present in the game. He then noted that a future announcement would be made on the subject.

Mortal Kombat X is set to come out on April 14 for the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One, Xbox 360, and PC. What do you think of the possibility of micro-transactions? How about those three new characters?
