Mortal Kombat X Has Microtransactions for Fatalities

mortalkombatxMortal Kombat X features microtransactions that unlock “Easy Fatalities” for 99 cents, or a pack of 30 for $5.

Fatalities are ‘finishing moves’ in Mortal Kombat that occur after a fight has been won, if the winning player can press the right buttons in time. As this can be difficult for some players, NetherRealm, the developers, have said:

“We’ve learned through years and years of study that there are a lot of people who just can’t pull off Fatalities, or they get freaked out or they can’t figure out the timing.”

‘Easy Fatalities’ allow players to press a single button to execute the fatality, which is mostly an amusing animation, and so does not affect gameplay in any major way.

There is also a microtransaction available to unlock all Krypt items for $20, which would give players access to all in-game items immediately upon purchasing.

Mortal Kombat X is out now for the Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC, with Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions coming soon.
