We’re just a few days away from Mortal Kombat 11’s release, and if you’re planning on picking it up but don’t have a stable internet connection, or planning to play it offline, you might want to read this bit first.
A NetherRealm Studios employee revealed via Twitter (tweet has since been pulled) that certain parts of the game will be inaccessible if you’re not connected to the internet. While this doesn’t mean that a Mortal Kombat 11 online connection is required to play the game, prepare to not be able to unlock gear and play certain modes.
Fortunately for us, the ResetEra member Tyaren has been able to verify this info via an early copy, and even after applying the day one patch, certain modes are still unavailable offline according to him. Currently the modes and stuff that you won’t be able to access without an internet connection in Mortal Kombat 11 are: The Krypt, Towers of Time, earn gear, and even earn Achievements/Trophies!
While some might argue that the Tower of Time has always been an online-only mode, don’t forget that Injustice 2 — which was also developed by NetherRealm — had the Multiverse mode that allowed players to earn gear and play it offline.
Is this a big deal for you? Or is your preferred gaming platform of choice that this is a non-issue? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.
