MK 11 Follows Tradition by Scamming More Gamers Out of Content With Microtransactions.
 

 
Couple redditors got the game early, have uncovered the future dlc in the game files. (spawn incoming.) I'll link the dlc below for those dont want the spoiler.

In addition they've gotten to play the single-player, and use the customization options outlined in the trailers. Their reactions are below.


"tl;dr --

Locked, paid-for content (not 'extra' DLC -- just stuff already a part of the base game) is tied to a layered (more than one) RNG (random number generator) system, with very low acquisition rates, oodles of content padding ("titles" and other garbage), cloned items drops (*unconfirmed), are not necessarily character specific in nature (*players can use in-game currency to purchase char. specific "towers") and / or otherwise (without gear) insurmountable in-game completion tasks (example: cheating CPU opponents requiring the very "gear" to defeat which the tasks themselves lock out). Most of the equippable items are "gear" and gear level specific (gear has an levelling / XP component) and, therefore, need to be re-acquired (*or their attributes "re-rolled") when new items are obtained.


Note:

- These "unlockables" do not encompass only throw-away icons and banners, but, also apply to CHARACTER INTROS / OUTROS, BRUTALITIES / FATALITIES, GEAR PIECES ("AUGMENTS") AND FULL CHAR. SKINS.


Alternatively, all the locked content can be unlocked by further investing real-world money into the game's surrogate / euphemistic currency, "Time Krytsals". That is to suggest, these grind walls are almost certainly in place to goad people into spending even more money -- above the premium triple-A price tag + DLC / season pass(es) -- in order to gain access to the content they were promised, that the game was promoted with and that they have already fully paid for, and in a reasonable time frame. In other words, MMO retail content pricing models are being applied to the premium priced, AAA video game, Mortal Kombat 11.


Notes:

- Most content-unlocking REQUIRES ONLINE CONNECTIVITY, and any content left unlockable offline, must then establish server connection in order to be saved to the player profile, upon subsequent log-in (*confirmed by developer, Derek Kirtzik -- "...So you're not trying to give yourself rewards that you don't have").

- No information has yet been given as to whether OFFLINE PvP VERSUS PLAY WILL PERMIT THE USE OF CUSTOMISED CHARACTERS. Meaning, if MK11 gimps player-2 to default / vanilla characters only (as the game it's borrowing so heavily from, Injustice 2 did), all customisation and the acquisition thereof, will be for versus-dumbot or "kasual" online mode/s only."

For some, this is no big deal. They dont play the game to customize the color of scorpions guard, Nor will they play 1000 matches to unlock the camo one. But for those that were interested, knowing its basically loot boxes is dissapointing.

Damn not MK11 too? With all the positive news it's been getting this is the wrong way to go. Shout out once again to Nintendo for releasing Smash with 70 plus characters.

Played the switch version for a bit and ALL unlockables require ONLINE connectivity even the story mode unlocks. Each character has a total of

90 cosmetic unlocks
60 skin unlocks
4 Intros
4 Vicotries
2 Fatalities

There are different ways to unlock them too which seems quite excessive such as a Kronika Chest,Story Mode, Towers of Time mode, Character Tower, The Krypt/special locations in the Krypt, Premier or Boss Portal, and The Forge.

People will just say fu*k it and rather pay instead of waste time going after something I guess.

As far as offline PVP from what I can see in the switch version is that PLAYER 1 can use either one of the 2 ready made templates for a character OR they can select one that they have customized themselves. PLAYER 2 only gets to choose from the 2 ready made templates. Not sure if that could change if Player 2 was actually able to sign in.

You can do offline tournament mode and then all characters have one moveset and no custom characters can be used.

Hopefully, this isn't surprising to anyone. Gone are the days of paying for a game (once) and not having to pay for extras.

I'll wait until more reliable sources play the game thoroughly. The outrage ain't really connecting right now with me.

I already preordered. I dont agree with this "grinding" sh*t put into every game solely for the purpose of extracting more money. some of us dont have hours upon hours to play a fu*kin game every night. Some of us have real lives.


Some people dont care.

It looks like a*s in handheld too. If you were wanting it for this, I'd say stick to the TV, I'm still going to get retail, just for PS4 instead.

Man I got it for free and it is straight trash graphics wise on the switch. Characters are missing pixels and the hair is just laughable in game and very distracting to look at. I will be getting it on the one x. Just wanted to try it out before I buy, but it looks like a grindy game to unlock most anything in it.

we seen a trailer with whole orchestras, real music for the trailers, huge reveal event, Shang Tsung from the movie, Ronda Rousey, mad ads, real face scans, they said the plan is to end up having a longer lifespan than the other NRS titles, krypt is its own in-depth adventure game, completely redone UE3, etc.
lol y’all didn’t expect this????
im not surprised the krypt isn’t fixed crates again after overhauling the whole mode.
costumes is cool but i’m here to play a f*ghting game i’m a fan of lol. never bought the krypt unlock sh*t last MK or mother boxes and won’t this game.
done seen two big posts on reddit regarding the krypt and two completely different opinions. maybe y’all should wait and see for yourself if it’s a grind or not.

Yeah, real talk, the only thing I had on my mind when I saw that orchestra vid was "WTF is the budget for this game lol"

100 mil? More?

If that's the case, you goddamn right they will be RAPING YOU RAPING YOU RAPING YOU!!!!
