Mortal Kombat 11 is out, and so, the first reviews about the game already went live. Game critics seem to overall agree – Mortal Kombat 11 is a great game. However, one particular thing got criticized by many. Apparently, Mortal Kombat 11 offers a very annoying grind in order to unlock some of the game’s rewards. Don’t be alarmed – NetherRealm Studios is already on the case.
In the most recent stream prior to the game’s launch, Mortal Kombat creators revealed that the team is already working in order to address the main issue spotted by the critics. NetherRealm Studios told that the team is looking to re-balance the game’s progression system. After this hotfix players will get more frequent and better rewards in order to minimize the requirement to grind. Furthermore, the fix should be implemented very soon, since it won’t require any additional programming – just a minor number tweak.
The grind we talk about is directly related to the in-game challenge system, which, according to critics, gives a lot of difficult and sometimes tedious challenges for very little and random rewards. Of course, players can use Mortal Kombat 11’s microtransactions in a form of Time Crystals to unlock cosmetics directly instead of earning them, but we all know how these things are perceived by the gamer community.
For now, it seems like NetherRealm Studios is way ahead of possible backlash and we should receive the noted fix in the next few days.
