Those who love to make their kombatants stick out from the crowd with alternative costumes earned from in-game unlocks or through post-release content are going to pretty happy with NetherRealm Studios’ upcoming plans with Mortal Kombat X.
According to Shaun Himmerick, the executive producer for MKX, fans can expect a larger amount of alternative costumes for Mortal Kombat X than any other Mortal Kombat title to-date. This may also be the reason as to why the Kombat Pack for Mortal Kombat X is retailing for $29.99 USD, according to Steam, as the Kombat Pack is set to include themed character packs.
It should be noted that even though Mortal Kombat X will feature more alternative costumes than its predecessors, it will not contain more costumes than NetherRealm Studios’ DC-based fighter, Injustice: Gods Among Us, which released over 40 alternative costumes during the game’s lifespan.
As for the PC version of Mortal Kombat X, it appears that the studio who will be responsible for porting the game to mouse and keyboard is none other than High Voltage Studio, who are also tasked with porting the game to the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 platforms.
- Assassin: Focuses on rushing down your opponents.
- Royal Storm: Focuses on her fans and zoning.
Mortal Kombat X will be available on April 14, for the PC, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One platforms.
