This is a public service announcement. Today's Mortal Kombat X
article brings both good news and bad news. We'll be starting with the good news.
When the game's special editions
were announced last month, the common item that gamers would receive was the in-game "Kombat Pack" DLC, regardless of their choice of special edition. This pack would add four playable characters to the roster. Two of these will be "Klassic Mortal Kombat
Kombatants", while a third will be a special guest character. The fourth character has been confirmed as Jason Voorhees, the seemingly-invincible protagonist from the Friday the 13th
films and the entire reason why you never wanted to go to summer camp.
If you're not planning on purchasing one of the game's special editions, the "Kombat Pack" will be available for separate purchase for £24.99 or regional equivalent. Those who purchase the "Kombat Pack" will also receive the "Samurai Pack", which includes three new character skins (Ronin Kenshi, Samurai Shinnok and Jingu Kitana), as well as "an accompanying skin pack with each playable character". They will also receive early access to future DLC content before it becomes available for sale on the Xbox LIVE Games Store.
Now we move on to the bad news. The Xbox 360 version
of the title has been delayed. In a statement to Videogamer.com
, Warner Bros said:
Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment today confirmed that the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions of Mortal Kombat X being developed by High Voltage Software will release this summer. The Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and Windows PC versions will be available April 14.
As stated, the Xbox One version of the title will release on schedule on April 14th worldwide. When we get a more specific date for the Xbox 360 version, we'll be sure to let you know.
