MKX: Blue Steel Sub-Zero DLC to Support eSport League

The downloadable content keeps on coming! With the announcement of the Who’s Next? Mortal Kombat X Worldwide Competitive Program; Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and NetherRealm Studios have revealed the Blue Steel Sub-Zero skin.

The downloadable character skin will help fund the competitive league enterprise, contributing a portion of proceeds to on-going tournament prize pools. The competitive set-up marks a partnership with The Electronic Sports League (ESL), developing a more robust program on the back of improvements made in Mortal Kombat X.

Fans will likely recognize the "Blue Steel" skin as a palette swap of "Gold Scorpion" -- Kollector's Edition statue and bonus skin designed by Coarse [learn more]. NetherRealm Studios did not respond to inquiries about pricing or availability at the time of this article.

EDITOR'S NOTE
Right idea, questionable execution. Getting the series out of the palette swap ghetto has been key to its modern evolution. The Coarse design has a great artistic sensibility, but its lost when half-heartedly duplicated. I would have liked to have seen something unique and thematically complimentary to better support the competitive scene. A legendary Kung Lao, championship Liu Kang, or MMA Johnny Cage strike me as simple, effective designs that acknowledge the players, the theme, and/or the eSports concept. Even so, I hope fans will take an interest to support the cause.

Mortal Kombat X officially launches on the PlayStation 4, Xbox 360 & PC on Tuesday, April 14th! Trade gamertags, strategies and online challenges on the dedicated Gameplay & Matchmaking forum. Register to join all the discussion in the MKX forum.

Sub-Zero Blue Steel Skin?!

Well well well what do we have here?

Not only is MKX getting ESL representation with an Elite 8 Tourney for 100K but wait what's this?

Looks like SZ is getting the Coarse treatment aswell!

This is quite awesome to see Subby getting some love too!

Hence why I said "SZ is getting the Coarse treatment" but everyone knows all Ninja's were created equal.

I'm anticipating one for Reptile at some point.

I know but Coarse Scorpion is just a simplified version of his MKX attire. That's the same statue painted in blue. We're treading color swap territory again with something that should have stayed a statue.

RE: Sub-Zero Blue Steel Skin?!

I just can't bring myself to like that Coarse design. Not even a little bit. And the fact that Sub-Zero is just a pallet swap is disappointing. I can handle pallet swaps for classic nostalgia costumes but if there was going to be a Sub-Zero Coarse skin, I hoped they'd at least change the outfit to look similar to his MKX design. Ah well. I think I might pass on this skin.

The art style of the skin reminds me ALOT LIKE A WHOLE FUCKING LOT of Batman : The Animated Series

In regards to the palette swap days? They did it in MK9 with the klassic ninja skins I fail to see how this is a step backwards?

Palette swap days were the best day anyways in my opinion.

Painting Scorpion blue isn't going to make me like this design any better.

I hated it when it was scorpion skin but at least scorpion is expected to have stupid trivial skins as the poster child.

..I thought sub zero was above this sort of thing

That was my first thought too! I automatically thought of the batman animated series skins from arkham city.

What, you mean you don't like the exact same freaking thing but in a different color? How ungrateful can you be? It took them at LEAST a few minutes to make it!

Sadly, if i'm correct, you only get this is you win a major tournament. Yea, my guess is about 99% of us on MKO aren't winning Evo. Hopefully i can find one on ebay or something

Uh.. What? They said you can purchase it regardless, a portion of the money goes to the prize pool. Everyone can buy the skin.

Yeah, the Scorpion version was a cartoon interpretation of his MKX design, if they were going to make a Sub-Zero one, just color swap isn't enough, it looks lazy IMO. It could've worked if the overal design was generic, but that's clearly Scorpion in blue.

It's a blue Scorpion. I don't even like the Coarse version of Scorpion. Not going to bother with it.

Lol...

This shit keeps getting worse. First glow in the dark Raiden, and now this cheap Sub-Zero halloween costume. Poor effort, NRS.
