Publisher Warner Bros has lined up a day-one patch for its upcoming fighting game, Mortal Kombat X, which enhances online stability and multiplayer invite options.

Information on the update, which will be mandatory for those who want to connect the game online, has arrived due to one player receiving their copy ahead of release date.

A Reddit user, going by the name "Abudiix", said the day-one patch apparently makes many of the game's challenges more difficult. The user added that in-game currency awards have been reduced significantly, explaining: "My friend used to get 2,500 coins on a boss fight now he gets 200 on the same boss fight after the update."

Meanwhile, the update is also said to expand the size of The Krypt, which is a warehouse-sized area filled with coffins that can be opened for in-game currency. Each coffin, once opened, provides the player with items such as concept art, videos, and even hidden special moves.

Mortal Kombat X launches April 14 for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC. The Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3editions, however, have been delayed.
