Now Playing: Best Mortal Kombat 11 References and Callbacks

Mortal Kombat 11's latest patch has arrived, and it's a big one. Available on Xbox One, PS4, and PC (and coming to Switch soon), the new update fixes several exploits and issues, while also making changes to matchmaking and introducing AI adjustments. You can see the full patch notes posted below.

In addition to the update, NetherRealm has issued its a "thank you" effort. It includes bundles of free in-game currency, including 500,000 Koins, 500 Hearts, 1,000 Souls, and 1,000 Time Crystals. That's enough to buy a decent amount of in-game items including one of the premium skins, and it's the studio's way of responding to the microtransaction controversy surrounding its game. NetherRealm maintains that it does not want to artificially push people toward spending money on microtransactions.

You can see the full patch notes below, as posted by NetherRealm on Reddit.

"There's a diverse roster of interesting characters and playstyles, and the story mode is an entertaining romp," Edmond Tran wrote in GameSpot's Mortal Kombat 11 review-in-progress. "The unfulfilling approaches to the game's dynamic single-player content and progression may feel like they've totally whiffed (at least at this early stage), but Mortal Kombat 11 hits where it matters."
