Mortal Kombat 11 Devs Promise Fixes for Towers of Time, Krypt Progression

Mortal Kombat 11 Devs Promise Fixes for Towers of Time, Krypt Progression

Netherrealm has heard the early feedback and is attempting to address it.

Mortal Kombat 11 is officially out tomorrow on PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Switch, but the reviews are already painting a picture of an excellent fighter marred by some progression issues. In today's Kombat Kast stream, the developers at Netherrealm Studios promised fixes for some of those issues, especially on the Towers of Time and Krypt modes.

"We are continually optimizing Mortal Kombat 11 based on player feedback," said Mortal Kombat 11 community manager Tyler Lansdown. "We listen to you guys, we follow Twitter, we look at Facebook and we see what you guys are saying. That said, we have seen that there are some players who are struggling with the progression of Towers of Time and the Krypt. We do have a fix rolling out ASAP to address our players who are having those problems. To address balance and address the rewards you get from playing them."

Lansdown noted that there's two types of fixes that Netherrealm can push out. There are full patches, which require a lot of coding and likely certification at the various console storefronts. Then there are what they called "tweak vars," likely short for "tweak variables". These are small changes to a move's damage or frame data, or how much gold you receive from a match or tower. It seems like the changes rolling out today are of the latter variety.

The community manager said that Netherrealm did not "have an exact time" for the roll out of the tweaks, outside of as soon as possible. There were also no specific details as to what will be changing post-tweaks.

"We've been listening and we definitely want to fix that. Thank you for your feedback as always," said Lansdown on the stream.

Mortal Kombat 11 is releasing tomorrow, but you can check out our review right now, which addresses many of the problems spoken above by the developers.
