Mortal Kombat X Has Microtransactions for Fatalities
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.
