Halloween Fatality PS5 PlayStation 5 Mortal Kombat 1

An additional Halloween Fatality is available for purchase within Mortal Kombat 1’s in-game store right now, and the release’s community is incensed by the addition. The finisher costs 1,200 Dragon Crystals, but you’ll need to cough up $10 for 1,250 Dragon Crystals in order to obtain it. When you consider the entire release can be purchased for $70, with dozens of Fatalities inside it, that doesn’t exactly seem like great value for money.

Unsurprisingly, the release’s community is already taking a stand, encouraging each other to boycott the Fatality so it doesn’t become a trend. Many have argued that the title is transforming into a freemium release, despite it commanding a full-price at launch.

Personally, we’re not surprised to see the addition of paid Fatalities, although we do agree the price seems obscenely steep. Obviously, these aren’t easy animations to create, but with a single finisher costing a sizeable proportion of the game’s launch price, we’re aligned with the community in thinking this doesn’t represent good value for money.
