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.

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.

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!

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.

Mortal Kombat 11 Out Now

2.5D fighting game Mortal Kombat 11 from NetherRealm Studios and Warner Bros. is now available on Nintendo Switch, PC, PS4 and Xbox One.

One of most iconic franchise of fighting games returns as developer NetherRealm Studios and publisher Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment releases Mortal Kombat 11 today for Nintendo Switch, PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

Players would embark a journey into a cinematic storyline that continues from the events of MKX, where fighters from both past and present era are assembled by Kronika, keeper of time to rewrite history and erase Raiden from it forever.

Aside from an engaging Story Mode, MK11 offers you to test your skills and improve them against various challenges in Towers of Time. Using its Custom Variation feature, characters can be outfitted with different moves, skins and weapons as well.

Fans of Mortal Kombat fighting game franchise by developer NetherRealm Studios and publisher Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment are eagerly waiting for its latest installment Mortal Kombat 11 to arrive soon on Nintendo Switch, PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

Ever since the announcement was made, there has been a series of trailer showcasing character reveal and gameplay footage but what everyone has been looking forward to is lady Kitana to join MK11 roster and here she comes.

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.




RELATED: Mortal Kombat 11 Adds Jade

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

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.

MK11 introduces a new fighter who is a cunning jewel collecting creature that would rip off anyone who opposes him.

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.

In an ongoing thread of official player reveal for upcoming 2.5D fighting game Mortal Kombat 11, developer NetherRealm Studios and publisher Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment has added many fan-favorites to the roster of playable characters.

Kotal enters the arena by shapeshifting into his humanoid form after lunging in as a lion-like creature against Special Forces member Jacqui Briggs, both showing their typical demeanor as Emperor of Outworld and professional Olympic boxer.

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.

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.

During his display for fighting abilities against Baraka, Kabal and Scorpion, Johnny goes all in with a variant rendition of his regular chops from Mortal Kombat X and then adding some newfound ridiculous ones in the mix as well.

Cage brings back his brass knuckle punches, Fisticuffs, green fireballs and shadow kicks only to complement his Fatal Blow where he bash his competitor with Oscar for Best Actor in the skull, leading to his Fatality move Deadly Uppercut.

Game director Ed Boon even took his Twitter account to post a short clip of Johnny Cage confronting his ex-lover Sonya Blade, who decides to poke fun before getting into a match and she doesn't hold back at all while taunting.

Of course, no finishing move in Mortal Kombat series ever makes sense but the one Cage decides to go with really feels like a weird gore that tries to be funny. Salvaged from a Mortal Kombat 2 glitch, Johnny tries to punch the head off his rival over and over before succeeding at last.

Mortal Kombat 11 is currently scheduled to launch on April 23, 2019 for Nintendo Switch, PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One platforms. However, European market would have to wait till May 10 for the Switch version to see release.
