First Mortal Kombat DLC brings along a few klassic fatalities - 2011-05-27 17:33:38

You’ll have to buy the full set even if you’ve already got one old school fatality.


Warner Bros. has unveiled the first batch of Mortal Kombat DLC and – as expected – they’re giving everyone an opportunity to grab all of the retailer-specific pre-order incentives in one fell swoop. The expansion includes seven klassic character skins – Scorpion, Reptile, Sub-Zero, Ermac, Kitana, Mileena, and Jade – as well as klassic fatalities for Scorpion, Reptile, and Sub-Zero. The kontent can be seen in the trailer below, and will be available on June 7


for 400 Microsoft Points or $4.99.

While the extra outfits are certainly appreciated – at $5, it’s not even too expensive – the expansion kind of undercuts the entire pre-order system. I’ve already got the Reptile fatality, but I have to buy it again if I want to rip someone’s spine out with Sub-Zero so it’s a bit disappointing to know that the fatalities won’t be available on a piecemeal basis. Unless Warner Bros. is abandoning any pre-order pretense, there needs to be a discount for the core fans that made an early commitment to the game.
