    ^ from the reddit thread by people who got the game early. So, yeah, not characters, but lots of gameplay stuff.

    also, I read the DLC leak list. Yeah boi, some of those are dope af.
    This is shitty. I don't care about skins and gear, but the intros/outros, brutalities and fatalities should be either in the game or part of a larger DLC pack.

    Been playing the MK11 leak on Switch for a few days now. I cant save my progress because its tied to the online servers. But quick thoughts on the Switch port. It visually looks bad. The downgraded resolution looks almost like 3DS level of graphics. On the TV is looks shit, but if you play in tabletop mode and from a bit of a distance, it looks ok. The gameplay is solid though. Great frame rate, and feels just as snappy as I imagine the console versions would.

    I'm a bit torn on which format to buy this on. Visually its not nice on Switch, but the gameplay is still great, along with the fact that its portable. There's a decent amount of customisation options on this too for your characters, so there's going to be loads of replay value in this.
    I'm definitely going to recommend people to get this. Just cant decide on the format right now.

    Yeah, I think its great. There's lots of nice customisation options for your character, which alone makes this worthwhile for me personally. You can tweak the appearance, the moveset, even mess around with the AI of this custom variation so that you can decide how the character will fight when CPU controlled.

    I read that, cool, but makes me think that they are never going to bring him back.

    I just bought it on PC. I thought in the end it didnt make sense to get it on Switch if I need to be online to access stuff like the Crypt, save progress etc. Kinda makes the advantage of handheld mode a bit redundant.

    The PC version (if you buy the Steam key online) is like 11 cheaper than PS4 and Xbox One, which sealed the deal for me.

    I hear the grinding for some of the towers is absolutely ridiculous. Like it will take days of time to grind.

    Boon says they’re going to fix it, but I think that’s only bc they got called out so badly.

    That does seem to be the latest trend from big producers. RDR2 did it. Battlefront 2 did it. Start off with something ridiculous so the whales spend on microtransactions then when the blowback comes, lower it to more reasonable values.

    im not liking the idea of consumables during tower of time

    some of the consumables you need actually counter act stuff like that e.g mask of havik


    i don't mind the randomness of the krypt or the grind ( i spent over 100 hours farming the dam cobra in borderlands 2 and other stuff so im fine with that )

    7.5/10 few hiccups on pc but im enjoying it


    erron black has the best brutality ever made though, tricky to pull off so dam dam worth it

    Erron's fatality of blowing out the brains with a shotgun INSIDE the body is great.

    Ugghh, this mess about the Krypt is really putting me off the game. I might actually wait very long before I pick it up, if ever.

    If there's a version that comes with everything unlocked, I'm in. But I'm not paying for the individual transactions, and the Tower sounds abysmal. And randomized Krypts? Really?

    well theres a breakthrough for the krypt

    https://old.reddit.com/r/MortalKomba...t_random_post/


    theres a start, kombat kast today with details on the incoming hotfix coming soon, hopefully it fixes rewards
    2 hearts for a brutality and one for a fatality is a bit low balling when a majority of the heart chests in the krypt is 250

    so hopefully the fix is a decent number

    make a new post for this.. what was stated on the kombat kast

    everything obtainable in the krypt is the same for everyone, the only random thing about it is the locations of the chests

    so that i took from that and the post on reddit is, if those heart chests all contain the cosmetics for a specific character it's not the same for everyone, so what you got will be different fro what i get.

    they pushed out a server tweek last night which lowered enemy health values and a few tweeks in the tower of time

    and a patch is hopefully coming end of week/ start of next week


    nothing about kombat packs either was only a small lil kast

    I think I'll wait for Mortal Kombat 11 XL or whatever they decide to call it.

    I think this depends on how much you like these games and how much time you want to invest in it. I personally like to unlock stuff so I'd rather have this than a XL version later. If you just want to casually play then wait for the XL.
    Its like how Mario Kart 8 Deluxe annoyed me a little with how every character was already unlocked (unlike the Wii U version). It kinda removed the incentive to playing the single player.

    Also another thing is that I like the grind because the time is used to get familiar with the characters and hone my skills. I suck at the game so I kinda need that.

    I think part of the problem is I'm already behind on getting to so many games, they haven't left me an incentive to push theirs up in the line.

    I mostly play MK with friends, and while I love unlocking stuff, I don't want something that's going to take a ridiculous amount of grinding to do so. I've never had a problem with the way unlockables were handled in previous games. This one just sounds like an unnecessary hassle.

    I remember the day when you buy a game and the game was there. Now it's like you buy a game, but you need to grind to holy frick just for it to let you have the entire game. Fuck that noise.

    Ehhh, I think working to unlock things is awesome. It's part of the reward and replayability. But it should be a streamlined process that's not overtly time-consuming. Like unlocking a character after completing an Arcade run with a certain character, or completing certain modes or something like that. Putting it through a steep grind as an excuse to tempt people to pay for it instead is just shady and overly tedious.

    I dont really care either way, as long as its not the important items locked behind these reward boxes. If they're locking away characters that require a ton of grinding then that sucks. But if its just cosmetic stuff, maybe a fatality or whatever, then is it really that bad? You can still enjoy the game without that stuff, and at the same time there's an incentive for those who're willing to grind.

    Its mainly cosmetic stuff, 2nd fatalities, brutalities and concept art.

    But a few boxes have key krypt items for puzzles

    Been playing the new update with the increased rewards (and the nice currency bonus from the devs). I think we're at a reasonable level with the amount of grinding required now. Fatalities give you 3 hearts instead of 1. Brutalities give you 5. So you need to do 50 Brutalities to open one of those Shao Kahn chests, which I think is decent considering the value of the contents. That cuts the time it takes to unlock everything to less than half of what it used to be. Anyone complaining at this point probably shouldn't have bothered getting the game at all. I think its great how it is at the moment. Not perfect, but pretty damn good.

    And I have to say, I love the Krypt. The devs have done an awesome job on the design and the visuals. If you're into the whole MK lore and the original movie, you'll appreciate the look and feel of it. I think I love the Krypt as much as the actual game itself.

    I feel like the rule should be if you beat the story mode of the game and then beat the tower mode with all characters, that should be enough to unlock everything in the game...

    Doing a mercy before doing a brutality/fatality earns more hearts

    Enjoy the grind for the warrior shrines in the krypt.. fuck me dead its a grind and a half

    Been using the AI on towers with autofire on the controller, to do a ton of the work for me. The only annoying thing was that I bought the PC version (as it was cheaper), meaning I cant use the computer while its doing its thing. But besides that, its nice that its doing a huge chunk of the grinding for me.
    Also a quick and easy way I found for stocking up on common forge crafting ingredients is to stand in the courtyard and just waiting for meteorites to hit, which of course you smash for materials. I may be wrong but it seems like they only fall within a certain radius of your character, so if you find a large open area like that, it will somewhere you can easily see and walk to. So I just leave the controller and wait until I hear the meteorite, then go and pick up the stuff I need. They seem to fall every couple of minutes.

    Outfits, no. Fatalities? Absolutely. That's basically the bread-and-butter of the series.

    That said, this update does seem like it'll make it better overall.

    All characters get a fatality right from the start, along with the brutality. I think if you take 2nd fatalities away from the rewards, there's less of an incentive to go after them. I think the best way to rectify that would've been to put the fatalities in the fixed Shao Kahn chests, so you knew exactly where to get the fatality you wanted, rather than constantly opening the loot boxes and hoping to get lucky.

    Take this fixed chest here (spoilered for size)


    I like that its in a fixed location, behind some puzzles, with these exact rewards for everyone. So if Liu Kang is your guy, you can do the specific requirements to get exactly these things from the image above, rather than opening hundreds of random reward loot boxes and hoping to get one of these. They should've added Liu Kang's fatality to the bundle as well, or at least put it somewhere fixed, so you knew where to get it if you wanted to go after it.

    The issue with the grind really is that so many rewards are random. You could potentially be grinding for months, gathering koins, opening chests, and still not get the thing you wanted. If the important, more sought after items were fixed, it actually wouldnt take that long to unlock. You could probably do it in a day.

    I think that's my biggest issue with it. Not the time put in for individual rewards, but the randomization that makes it hard to seek the specific things you want. More fixed locations for the more "important" prizes like that would be ideal.

    Another issue is that you get too many consumable items in the rewards. The thing with stuff like skins and gear is that once you get one from a loot box, you wont get the same one again. So naturally you'd think you'll unlock everything one by one, narrowing down the pool of rewards and eventually getting to all the stuff you're looking for. But when they throw consumables into the rewards (which you can keep getting), they're kinda padding the loot boxes with useless stuff.

    So still its not perfect. But I reckon the increase in currencies gained from fights is the last thing they're going to do to improve the experience. Any other ideas for improvement will probably be saved for the next game.

    That's a really clever way not to have the game have to load every single goddamn MK character model and fighting animation whenever Shang Tsung fights...

    They just have a palette swap of the one ninja that they can insert into Shang Tsung's moves and combos, and then he can mimic his opponent, whose character model and moveset are already loaded up...

    It's a pretty good way to handle his shape-shifting powers without breaking the game engine...

    Good point. It wasnt even apparent to me that they're cleverly masking a technical limitation here. And they've turned it into pure fan service nostalgia in the process.

    EDIT
    I really hope theres another cameo in the 2nd fatality. Maybe the brutalities could be like classic old school ninja fatalities like a throw that leads into the old Scorpion taking his mask off and spitting fire move.

    Think the hardest part of using shang tsung is your going to need to be decent with 2 characters.

    You get access to the krushing blows when you morph ( unless i saw wrong and it wasnt shang ).

    I can see the smoke and ermac change being brutalities

    Cant see it in rain or reptile unless they get more then one move

    Well, you're gonna need to be decent with more than 2 characters. Your own character, and every other possible character you can morph into.

    The chainsaw noise pretty much confirms what the leaks suggested earlier.

    I just think it's cool that they used the original actor from the movie to play Shang Tsung. Let's bring back Bridgette Wilson and the guy who played Liu Kang!

    They should do a Mortal Kombat trilogy, but for Mortal Kombat (2011), Mortal Kombat X and Mortal Kombat 11...
    The Roster would be insane...

    I get a feeling it will happen eventually. They did this with Mortal Kombat Armageddon where they dumped all the 3d rosters they had made up until that point into one big game, so they've already done this on more than one occasion.

    Even taking away the guest characters, thats a massive roster. Especially if you keep in the gears and variations and stuff. Would be cool to see.

    Yeah, Joker looks like he's going out for a night on the town.

    Arnold looks fun. As does Spawn.

    Ash is probably being saved for the next Kombat Pack. Wasnt there a teaser video earlier that had chainsaw noises near the end of something?

    That Arnold is probably the best render I've ever seen of Terminator in any video game. Probably the best movie actor render in any video game ever.

    But I think Bruce Campbell has also been teasing things on twitter as well. And they're gonna do another Kombat Pack for sure, cuz Ed Boon mentioned how they're gonna be supporting this game for a lot longer than they supported MK X, which had two Kombat Packs.
