Mortal Kombat 11 Grind to Fix After Latest PS4 Update

NetherRealm has rolled out a new PS4 update for Mortal Kombat 11 to rebalance grind and Towers of Time.

Newest 2.5D fighting game Mortal Kombat 11 turns out to be the best ever in entire Mortal Kombat franchise. However, it is not without its fair share of issues like outfit controversy of female fighters, political agenda and awful grind.

Seems like its player base took issue with their in-game mechanics that pushes towards micro-transactions for cosmetic items and developers have promised to deliver an adjustment earlier to fix that issue, which just rolled in today.

Their latest update for MK11 live now on PlayStation 4 has worked out issues regarding its in-game economy and Towers of Time. Aside from increasing amount of Koins and Hearts as rewards, AI difficulty curve has been adjusted as well.

In order to reduce grind and for their troubles, developer NetherRealm Studios and publisher Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment decided to rewarding players with 500,000 Koins, 500 Hearts, 1,000 Soul Fragments and 1,000 Time Krystals.

RELATED: Mortal Kombat 11 Adds Kitana

Just like MK11 players on PS4 received a considerable in-game boost, NetherRealm will be rolling out same "Community Gift" for Nintendo Switch, PC and Xbox One platforms to make Krypt mode more player-friendly and welcoming to everyone.

A recent blowback from fans on their in-game currency reward system has made developers acknowledge this problem. Primary changes on difficulty and other features are detailed in patch notes that can be found on Mortal Kombat sub-Reddit.

RELATED: Mortal Kombat 11 Adds Kollector

Earlier, there was a claim that it would require players to spend over $6,000 to unlock every cosmetic item due to its crunch mechanics and series creator Ed Boon has quickly dismissed that idea but fans have already lost their trust on them.

Since NetherRealm Studios has always been vocal against loot boxes and pay-to-win tactics, seems like Mortal Kombat 11 only turned out to be an abusive crunch simulator because of intervention from its money grabbing publisher Warner Bros.

Mortal Kombat 11: How to Unlock Frost

Purchasable DLC fighter Frost is a hidden character within Mortal Kombat 11 that is easily unlockable in Story Mode.

After revealing their full character roster of playable fighters, developer NetherRealm Studios and publisher Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment has recently released their newest fighting game Mortal Kombat 11 worldwide.

With many fan-favorite characters returning from past Mortal Kombat games, players were looking forward to Frost making a comeback. Though developers brought her back through a DLC, you can easily earn access to her in-game for free!

Mortal Kombat 11: How to Unlock Frost

RELATED: Mortal Kombat 11 Out Now

Whereas you can simply pick up any character from entire roster that are available right away, NetherRealm decided to include this female Lin Kuei warrior in a non-exclusive DLC aside from already adding her as an unlockable hidden character in MK11.

In Story Mode of Mortal Kombat 11, one would require playing through entire Chapter 4 with any one of Scorpion and Sub-Zero or a combination of both on a rescue mission for Cyrax to unlock Frost, which is not really that difficult at all.

RELATED: Mortal Kombat 11 Review-Bombed on Metacritic

Since they made Frost acquirable though gameplay locking her up for only $5.99 on all available platforms, it looks a lot like a cheap scheme to earn some extra buck off the pocket of die-hard fans of their critically-acclaimed franchise.

What is truly baffling here is that in spite of adding her for players to find in-game within a couple of hours into Story Mode, her DLC description had no mention of it and they only added later that you don't require an immediate purchase to get her.

RELATED: Mortal Kombat 11 Grind to Fix After Latest PS4 Update

Giving away pre-order bonus character Shao Kahn for MK11 is somewhat understandable but locking up a popular character behind a small paywall smells a lot like a scam because it doesn't even come with a $99.99 worth Premium Edition.

Seeing even Shao Kahn became available for purchase following launch, one may only think whether Mortal Kombat 11 has some hidden way of unlocking Gold Demon Scorpion, Kold War Skarlet and Ninja Mime Johnny Cage somehow.

Mortal Kombat 11 Review-Bombed on Metacritic

Because of SJW Propaganda and micro-transactions system, Mortal Kombat 11 is review-bombed on Metacritic.

On April 23, developer NetherRealm Studios and publisher Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment has launched newest 2.5D fighting game Mortal Kombat 11 for Nintendo Switch, PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One platforms.

Though MK11 could perhaps be the best Mortal Kombat game yet in terms of gameplay and storyline, it has recently become a victim of review bombing on popular review aggregator site Metacritic and digital distribution platform Steam.

RELATED: Mortal Kombat 11 Out Now

It might make people wonder, what could possibly be reason for a game to get low ratings if it is actually good and there are two reasons for that; injecting social justice agenda in it and its in-game micro-transactions system.

Currently, MK11 is sitting at an awful user score of 3.1 on Metacritic as many disappointed players are either leaving 1 or 0, many stating their reasons as "SJW Propaganda" and "Political Agenda" due to Klassic Tower ENDING for Jax.

WARNING: THE FOLLOWING CONTAINS POTENTIAL SPOILERS FOR MORTAL KOMBAT 11.

After defeating main antagonist Kronika, Keeper of Time, Jackson Briggs uses power of her Hourglass to travel back in time to end slavery forever. Despite being a non-canon ending, it has managed to piss off many gamers as it seemed forced propaganda.

Being a military man who prefers order, Jax could have wished for permanent safety for Earthrealm or could have gotten back with his family but since he is an African American hero, NetherRealm decided to make him save his race from oppression.

Another complaint fans were pretty vocal about before launch was covering up body parts of women fighters for sake of political correctness, whereas leaving most male characters like Kano, Kotal Kahn, Liu Kang and Shao Kahn buck naked.

Then there is the infamous topic of micro-transactions and an excessive grind that gradually push players to it. Even reviewers who praised MK11 have mentioned how gameplay mechanics feels to decisively push you towards spending real-world money.

RELATED: Mortal Kombat 11 Adds Kollector

Addressing this particular issue, Mortal Kombat co-creator and game director Ed Boon took social media to announce an update to balance this grind-heavy system to unlock cosmetic items more easily for its customization features in Krypt mode.

NetherRealm and Warner Bros. may actually try something out to change Mortal Kombat 11 grind system but one way or another, calling it optional by keeping a hefty amount of game content behind Tower of Time and Krypt mode seems deceptive.

As her royal slaves carries her into arena, she straight out jumps into battle against Hive Queen of Arnyek to unleash some of her deadly classic moves and few of them are borrowed from evil twin sister Mileena for the time being.

Her overall appearance has gone through some major changes just like every other fellow characters joining MK11 and in spite of exposing much of her, this 10,000 years old Princess looks stunning in a much conserve outfit nevertheless.

D'Vorah pulls up some tricks by stabbing her opponent with pincers and lifting her above ground to release a swarm of bugs on her. Even after her defeat, the female Kytinn leaves behind a colonial bug offspring that fights on her behalf.

Exchanging a lot of blows eventually comes to an end as Edenian royalty delivers a Fatal Blow to crush D'Vorah on ground to finish off with a gruesome Fatality that involves those Steel Fans spinning like a pair of buzz saw cutting the winged insectoid in pieces.

Kitana actually debuted against Scorpion in an absolutely stunning official TV spot cinematic a week before this reveal.

From her debut back in Mortal Kombat II, Kitana has become a recurring character throughout MK series, which is why her appearance in newest series entry was not a surprise to anyone but was a question of when all along.

We are still crossing our fingers here hoping for Mileena to be included in Mortal Kombat 11 at the last minute, because that will make things interesting and fans will get to see some heated exchange between the sisters and some new moves.

Mortal Kombat 11 Adds Kollector

In a brand-new reveal trailer of Mortal Kombat 11, a proud servant of Shao Kahn named the Kollector makes his debut.

We are less than a month away from developer NetherRealm Studios and publisher Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment finally releasing Mortal Kombat 11 on April 23, 2019 for Nintendo Switch, PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

Many fan-favorites and series regulars are making their comeback for this upcoming 2.5D fighting game with some newcomers dropping in and one such addition is a being named Kollector from Outworld empire.

Kollector is a four-armed green skinned male of Naknada race with a similar appearance like first Mortal Kombat game sub-boss character Goro. He pledged his alliance to Outworld warlord Shao Kahn and serves his interest.

His combat moves and attributes are displayed in a not so long clip against Baraka, Kotal Kahn and Raiden. Following their initial exchange he unleashes a barrage of attack against the Tarkatan mutant with blades and Chakram.

RELATED: Mortal Kombat 11 Adds Johnny Cage

He then briefly tackles Osh-Tekk warrior and the eternal God of Thunder while displaying more of his mystical move sets. Kollector delivers a Fatal Blow to Baraka by beating him down and heavily stabbing him in back before cutting the throat of his rival.

His Fatality kicks the poor barbarian down to ground as he keeps tearing body parts to collect limbs that he liked such as heart and head. When he is done looting his deceased opponent, the Fatality ends with him slamming his arms onto a now headless corpse.

RELATED: Mortal Kombat 11 Adds Jade

Right after MK11 Closed Beta has ended on consoles; a brand-new reveal has come to light and it looks promising. Since the game intends to launch with 25 characters (except probably Kronika), there is at least one character left to introduce yet.

Though we heard many rumor about Mortal Kombat 11 before it was announced at The Game Awards 2018, NetherRealm took their time and now is supplying us with a steady dose of character reveal trailers every now and then.

One thing you can't get enough in Mortal Kombat franchise is Ninja assassins and they are significantly related to the lore. One such original fighter from the first game, Noob Saibot has returned to take part in latest MK tournament.

Once the original Sub-Zero, Noob Saibot faces off against his brother and current master of absolute zero, Kuai Liang for a match, drawing a scythe from his chest. He states at Kuai Liang that he is disappointed at him only to get the same remarks in return.

Of course the fan-favorite shadow warrior is here to display his kombat skills and thus, his Lin Kuei assassin opponent had to go through a lot of beating. Aside from typical bone-crashing punches and kicks, he uses his shadowy form to hit hard.

RELATED: Mortal Kombat 11 Adds Johnny Cage

Though he briefly engages Cassie Cage and Dark Raiden in combat in between, his primarily gameplay action is set to unleash his moves on his younger brother that would eventually lead towards a Fatal Blow, followed by a Fatality finish.

After teleporting and slamming Sub-Zero into the ground for several times, he hooked the opponent through chin before ripping his belly and passing his shadow twin using his wraith power to tear open his enemy from inside.

After taking a few hits and a punch on his face, the Osh-Tekk warrior initially delivers an intense beat down Earthrealm fighter by swinging his sword down on her to slam her to ground, sawing a little, drink her blood and even burned her with God Ray.

RELATED: Mortal Kombat 11 Adds Jade

It was seemingly an endgame for Jacqui at that point but she quickly turns the tides of the fight by retaliating with barrage of pounding on Kahn. A few more blasts and pummeling off her gauntlets eventually enabled her to defeat her opponent.

She sets up the stage for a Fatality move with her Fatal Blow, which is to push Kahn against an energy wall before shooting him down with her Hand Cannon and then kicking him so hard that he smashed onto the wall, breaking it.

Another thing to note here is that MK11 beta does not include PC and Switch platform except for Microsoft and Sony consoles. Excluding PC users from the arrangement is most probably due to an attempt to avoid advance leaks through data-mining.

After four years of hiatus, Mortal Kombat 11 is looking forward a massive opening next month as a sequel to Mortal Kombat X and developers are not done revealing more fighter characters added to the already impressive roster of MK franchise.

Back 4 Blood Announced

Left 4 Dead creators Turtle Rock Studios announced a spiritual sequel and upcoming co-op zombie shooter Back 4 Blood.

Zombie shooter games have always a special place to video game lovers all over the world but very few have succeeded in matching the legacy created by Left 4 Dead of 2008 by developer Turtle Rock Studios and publisher Valve Corporation.

A sequel, Left 4 Dead 2 came out in 2009 and a decade has passed in anticipation for release of a third installment with no hope for it or whatsoever, until now. Apparently, the original studio that worked on L4D is back with a spiritual sequel titled Back 4 Blood.

Turtle Rock is currently developing a cooperative shooter game where players will fend off hordes of zombies for the sake of their own survival, which sounds a lot like what L4D offered but they insist that it really is an original and unique IP.

Despite taking inspiration from the popular co-op zombie shooter franchise, the development team insists that the game is not Left 4 Dead 3 at all. They are about to introduce new features to honor the legacy of the preceding titles but being very coy about them.

RELATED: Job Listing Suggests Left 4 Dead 3 in Development?

Back in June 2018, a job listing for hiring animator, character concept artist and level designers with expertise of working on competitive FPS posted by the studio for a globally known franchise had many of us believed that Left 4 Dead 3 was indeed in development.

Of course, B4B will have a campaign mode while option for player-versus-player combat will also be there. However, they are not planning on to push a Battle Royale mode for it as it is heading to launch on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

RELATED: Steam Top-Selling & Most Played Games 2018

Developers are working in collaboration with Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment for this project that is committed to a player-first mentality. With everything they have learned over years, Turtle Rock Studios only focuses to move forward with new ideas.

When finished, Back 4 Blood would be a great opportunity for old-school fans of Left 4 Dead to jump back into a genre they craved for so long and new generation of players would be able to experience the same thrill of taking on undead hordes with squad mates.

Swinging her green bo staff, this deadly warrior enters the arena as an undead Revenant and in her first fight against Baraka, she goes all out on the Tarkatan tribe war chief by beating the living hell out of him with her attack moves.

Then she stabbed down his spine and slashed his throat before sticking a knife on his head. In time for performing a fatality, Jade impales Baraka with her bo staff through his bloody head, popping his left eye out and then cutting his lower body apart.

She shows almost the same ruthlessness against Skarlet and Sonya Blade on two different matches by crushing their bones and ripping them apart. A great deal of her moves comes from her iconic staff weapon with occasional use of blades every now and then.

After appearing in Mortal Kombat II as a hidden fighter, Jade eventually became playable in Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3 and almost instantly became a fan-favorite. In 2011 reboot of Mortal Kombat, her character was killed off in story mode.

However, she is resurrected by an evil sorcerer and now back from the dead to fight once again. Her arrival may also be a heralding the return of Kitana and Mileena to the franchise as well, because many character slots are still empty.

Although she was not present in Mortal Kombat X except for a cameo, developer Netherrealm decided to bring Jade back for Mortal Kombat 11 to complete their ambitious roster. Hopefully, fans were delighted to see her coming back only months before the title releases.

It is obvious that the trademark fatalities of a fighter from any MK title will be full of bone breaking and flesh ripping aside from the stage getting covered in a pool of blood. Well, guess what? NetherRealm Studios have summed up an entire video full of that above for the upcoming release.

As usual, the developers got creative on making a bloody mess of each fighter at every given chance they had. All these gory showdown of kicking and screaming comes down to the gruesome finishes and to secure a flawless victory.

As we predicted earlier, Raiden goes full dark side this time and he will have no tolerance towards anyone who threatens Earthrealm. The God of Thunder decides to inflict a darker shade of justice by killing any enemies of the realm before they make any move.

Following the ending of Mortal Kombat X, a defeated Shinnok was taken in by the protector of Earthrealm to the Jinsei Chamber and endlessly torturing the old sorcerer. The fallen antagonist then points out to his captor that wearing his amulet, Raiden has changed for better.

When Shinnok reminds him that he cannot really kill an Elder God, the lightning states that there are fates worse than death before decapitating his head to deliver it to Liu Kang of Netherrealm as a sign of warning and then teleports away.

What he doesn't know is that a new, fearful enemy named Kronica arrives at the scene, who dubs herself as "The Keeper of Time" and wishes to destroy the now corrupt Elder God for upsetting balance and meddling with timeline itself by previously changing it.

Even before the reveal event, there was rumor on social media of former UFC champion and current WWE Women's Champion Ronda Rousey to voice for fan-favorite Sonya Blade, which definitely turn out to be true and fans are happy as well.

Rousey was present at the livestream stage presentation and you can also see her in recording studio voicing for the character. Given her career background is being of a renowned martial artist, we can see her fitting well into the shoes of this strong female character.

Debuting straight to the eleventh installment from the mainline MK games, Geras is shown as a force of nature. Aside from the newly introduced villain Kronika, he has some control over time, which makes him a pretty intimidating and threatening opponent.

Geras has mostly displayed his ability of manipulating other than his superior fighting skills.
The untold origin of this mysterious character within the lore and how he gets in conflict with the protectors of Earthrealm is yet to be revealed.
