Microtransactions May Come to Mortal Kombat X

By   /   Feb 6, 2015

Would you be surprised to know about microtransactions in Mortal Kombat X? According to NetherRealm Studios, there may come a time when an announcement would be made to discuss how players will have the option of paying real-currency to attain features.

IGN reports that when the subject was brought up with Marketing Manager Brian Goodman at a recent event, he said that the company wasn’t prepared to discuss microtransactions yet. While that doesn’t necessarily confirm its existence, it does also signify of an impending future announcement.

At the moment there’s no way of predicting just how microtransactions could be implemented in Mortal Kombat X. In the last game, players had the Krypt, where in-game currency Koins could be used to unlock costumes, fatalities, artwork and fighters. It’s possible that NetherRealm Studios is planning on expanding that concept (Koncept) and giving players the additional option of unlocking through real money.

Earlier today it was revealed that High Voltage, and not NetherRealm, is handling the last-gen versions of the game. This is so that NetherRealm can keep its focus on the next-gen versions. High Voltage has previously worked on Injustice: Gods Among Us, and so is well versed with brawlers.

Mortal Kombat X will release in April.
