Since the launch of their newest game, NetherRealm Studios has been paying attention to the fan feedback and reviews for Mortal Kombat 11. The game has had pretty positive responses, except for one particular area. Gamers have been rather confused and irritated by the grinding necessary to unlock bonuses in the Krypt and various game modes.
For a variety of different reasons, NetherRealm sees fit to give all players a little helping hand. The reason for this most welcome announcement, at least for players that may be having trouble, concerns in-game currency and the progression systems within various game modes of Mortal Kombat 11. Koins are Mortal Kombat 11‘s primary virtual currency, and are mainly used to open treasure chests in the Krypt. Time Krystals are the game’s premium currency, and are gained slowly through gameplay and can be bought with real-world money.
Mortal Kombat 11 players are getting 500,000 Koins, 500 Hearts, 1,000 Soul Fragments, and 1,000 Time Krystals. These currencies can be used to open loot chests and enable different unlocks across multiple game modes in the new fighting game. One notable mode, and one that players seem to be complaining a lot about, is the Towers of Time.
“At launch, the difficulty of Towers of Time was too high. People felt that it was unfair” said NetherRealm Studio’s community manager, Tyler Lansdown. “Unfortunately, that made the process of earning rewards to go through the Krypt seem punishingly slow.”
The game across various platforms has also been dropped, tweaking gameplay elements. Patches will address stability and crashing issues first and foremost, with hotfixes for a handful of other bugs. Later updates will also bring some adjustments to the AI difficulty and the rewards for playing the game.
Mortal Kombat 11 is out now for PC, PS4, Switch, and Xbox One.
