The anticipated Kombat Kast from NetherRealm Studios has already ended, and fans came away with quite the number of patch notes for “Mortal Kombat X.” Fans can now expect new gameplay fixes as well as character-specific fixes.
Generally, there are adjusted actions for gameplay, such as character collisions in some attack moves like crouch blocking and attacks while jumping. Some abilities have also been removed. These include adding extra input in the middle of a normal attack and opting for execute a special move or throw reveal after a block stun is conducted. The patch also covers a number of move list corrections, according to the official update via the WB Games website.
As promised, Kano fans are getting a long list of fixes for the character. Commando Kano now has meter burn for the last hit of the FK, BP, Throw/FP+FK combo. This will allow for a combo follow-up in the move. Cybernetic Kano, however, has seen a reduced meter gain from Upward Laser and a reduction of 10 startup frames and damage. However, it is easier to follow-up a combo with the adjustment of the reaction on the Upward Laser.
Interestingly, Eventhubs reported that Tanya may have become even more powerful with the new “Mortal Kombat X” patch instead of getting some nerf time. There is now a notable 32 percent damage for opponents, who are shrouded and thrown. Those, who are thinking of taking advantage of the glitch, may want to use the Pyromancer variation, at least until NetherRealm Studios rolls out a fix.
Other characters and their respective variations have received some adjustments in the patch. The newest “Mortal Kombat X” patch is slated to roll out to their respective platforms.
Apart from the newly released patch notes, NetherRealm Studios seems to have another teaser in store for “Mortal Kombat X’ fans. The developer had announced that fans should stay tuned to the different social media channels for some announcements.
GameSpot has teased that this can be some new information on more DLC packs for the game. That would certainly be good news, especially following the announcement of the canceled PS3 and Xbox 360 versions of ‘Mortal Kombat X” following two delays.
NetherRealm Studios Creative Head Ed Boon is known for teasing a number of updates and news about “Mortal Kombat X” via his Twitter, so he should be on the to-follow list for fans this week.
