Mortal Kombat DLC And Patch Coming Soon

Within the next month.

Ed Boon, the co-creator of Mortal Kombat, released some new details today regarding MK9 DLC. It sounds like a few problems that we mentioned are going to be addressed very soon. An exact date was not provided.

According to Boon, Skarlet will be available as a playable character within the next month. It was also teased that there will be some “free stuff” included. In addition to that, certain characters will receive balance tweaks to go along with the new content. Thankfully, NetherRealm Studios is actually going to release patch notes this time around on the official MK website. It’s nice to know that the developers are listening to some of our concerns.

If you aren’t aware, today is day one of the official PDP Mortal Kombat 9 National Tournament in Las Vegas. The prize pool for the tournament is a whopping $21,000 for the top 8 competitors. The first place winner will go home with $10,000. The entire event is being live streamed by Team Spooky. Be sure to check it out if you want to see some high level Mortal Kombat action.

    its pretty good that they are going to balance the game. a few of the characters are a bit too cheap.

      Keep your distance, duck his spears, and when he stops to taunt you, get him with a projectile of some kind! DONE!!

    Hoping that Kenshi will be available to download soon, too. Really loving Mortal Kombat, and will hopefully get some online victories at last with the PSN back up.

      Yeah, there was no mention of Kenshi. Boon only named Skarlet specifically.

    I just can’t wait to get online with this game. I’ll probably get my ass kicked but fighting the AI is really starting to get old.

        Already given up on that one, not realistically achievable unless you leave your ps3 on like some people I know have been doing!
