That news sounds scary in the first place but is not that bad after all. This seems to only concern cosmetic items, going from skins to animations, according to NetherRealm Studios latest livestream.
It will then be possible to buy “Time Crystals” and spend them on some items, but also easy fatalities. The good news, however, seems that all those items can also be won in the game, without any real money … it will just take more time. Real money offers a shortcut to those items.
Mortal Kombat 11 is definitely on the list of the game that I am interested in getting, so I hope that there will not be any bad news about it!
The game will be available on April 23rd on basically any current generation console and PC.
If you missed it, NetherRealm also released Kitana in-game fight and Fatality.
