It seems like one-stop-shopping is trending up with video games and DLC these days -- the recent and very popular Rockstar Pass that scored gamers all of the current and upcoming DLC for L.A. Noire was the first big one this season, and now fans of Mortal Kombat can score a pass for that game that will grant them all four new add-on warriors at a reduced price.
Warner Bros. Interactive and NetherRealm Studios have announced the Mortal Kombat Season Pass which will offer Mortal Kombat fans an added incentive to buy all four new add-on warriors in one go for a reduced price instead of purchasing them individually for more -- and who can say no to that?
The first Mortal Kombat downloadable warrior, Skarlet, will be available for download starting June 21st and will be followed by Kenshi, Rain, and an unannounced new entrant to the Mortal Kombat tournament! Each warrior will come with a full move set, a ladder arcade story ending and two fatalities.
Available for purchase now, the Mortal Kombat Season Pass will allow users to buy all four downloadable warriors as a package for 1200 Microsoft points. Each individual warrior can be purchased when they release for 400 Microsoft points -- which if you are adding it up is a savings of 400 Microsoft Points -- or buy three get one free!
Each warrior will become unlocked for download as they become available throughout the summer.
In order to allow for seamless online play with the new downloadable warriors, everyone will need to download the free compatibility packs as they will be required after the release of each new warrior so that gamers who do not buy the new characters will have the graphics files for them in their game so that they can still play with those who do...
As an added incentive, each compatibility pack will come with two FREE klassic skins -- the first of which are being released with Skarlet and will be the Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3 inspired Cyrax and Sektor. Gamers who purchase the Mortal Kombat Season Pass (or individual Add-on content) will automatically get the free klassic skins when they download each warrior, of course. Those who do not purchase the Mortal Kombat Season Pass or the Add-ons will be able to download the compatibility packs for free and have access to the klassic skins as well.
The Mortal Kombat Season Pass is only available for purchase on Microsoft's Xbox LIVE. PlayStation users will also have full access to the individual DLC warriors (at £3.19), the compatibility packs, and the FREE klassic skins.
