MKX Creative Director Says More Good News On Horizon

Creative Director Ed Boon has dropped an enticing message for Mortal Kombat X fans on Twitter. The slightly cryptic note: a promise of much more good news beyond the imminent, controversial Kombat Pack 2.

While on the surface the message seems to be a positive guarantee of more to come - it may not be quite what fans hope. The capitalized words 'Good Game, Peace Out' appear to tell a different story about what's on the horizon for Mortal Kombat X - an effective end?

To date, all NetherRealm Studios fighting games have followed their initial release year with a subsequent re-issued complete edition. A new disc replete with all of Mortal Kombat X's extensive downloadable content may be the next logical step as the developer moves on to their next project.

Unlike previous editions, will Mortal Kombat X Komplete include new material as a last hurrah? Story mode non-playable characters Rain, Baraka & Sindel remain popular requests. Fujin is another story mode presence omitted from the playable roster to the point of defiance. With The Pit so similar to its 2011 incarnation, why stop at just one klassic arena?

A new printing could be the answer to the much hounded online netcode. 'Good Game, Peace Out' may also be a reference to GGPO - middlewear designed by Evo World Championship founder Tony Cannon to create latency reduction in online fighting games. Post-patched compatibility may also be an option.

[Related Article: Speculation: Is NetherRealm Studios Preparing For Injustice 2?]

Kombat Pack 2 takes downloadable content further than any NetherRealm Studios game before it, but has surprised fans by only offering a single new pack of character skins to go with its four new characters.

The first Kombat Pack offered fifteen total skins - three alongside each character release. KP2 includes The Pit arena and three Apocalypse Skins [read more], but falls down with previously sold content. Cosplay packs (Brazil and Kold War) and pre-order character Goro are a challenging offer to fans who've already paid a premium, or opted out.

Boon hinting at more things to come on twitter

He just tweeted that there's more good news to come for MKX beyond Kombat Pack 2. I'm not gonna hold my breath for another kombat pack, but a few extra characters/stages would be lovely.

Thoughts?

ESL Season 3? He says BEYOND KP2 so maybe KP3? Not sure

EDIT: Tyler Lansdown just tweeted "Some fun news coming tomorrow"... I'm very intrigued. Possibly improved netcode although I doubt it?

Improved netcode......yeah, don't we all wish. It'd be like Hell freezing over if that happened. Lol

Maybe they plan on releasing skin packs outside of the KP like they originally did with the shit they're shoveling in this one?

How long do you think before someone legitimately brings up Story Pack? lol

Edit: Upon some googling over Ed's ever so cryptic hints, perhaps it may be improved netcode after all......huh, well ain't that a shocker.

lol, it's really not likely but I still doubt that they're doing any more characters and I can't think of anything else other than ESL S3 that they'd chose to announce, but they would probably announce that after S2 is over.. So it's a toss up at this point. and lol at the story pack

Let's not rush to conclusions.. If it is, hats off to NRS. I forgive them for KP2 being shit if that's the case, but honestly, I just don't see it. I'm choosing to not believe it in the fear of being disappointed again.

LOL It's gotta be that though, right? I mean, I know it's Ed and everything, but would he really choose those words specifically knowing fully well a fighting community knows exactly what its condensed form means?

I mean, KP2 may be all sorts of awful but fuck, if they pull that off and actually make this game playable for me again, all is fucking forgiven. I have 4 friends who all live overseas because they are all in the Air Force and playing them is God-fucking-awful. And it's the perfect way to combat SFV and KI:S3 this year.

I'm gonna go out a limb (yet again) and remain hopeful. They surely can't not mean that and I can't see it being anything else as they surely wouldn't muddy their waters with even more DLC announcements when we don't even know everything there is to know about KP2 yet.

RE: Boon hinting at more things to come on twitter

Let's see. Picking apart ed's twitter by what he emphasized:

"So much more GOOD news on the horizon for the Mortal Kombat X GAME beyond Kombat Pack 2. Stay tuned, and PEACE OUT! "

GOOD. GAME. PEACE OUT.

GOOD. More content is "good".

Game. Peace. Out.

Game. Game of thrones. Rain is a prince.

Peace Out. Peace. Outworld. Peace in Outworld.

Rain is a Prince of Edenia supporting Mileena's rebellion with the intention of separating Edenia from Outworld and achieving peace.

Hence...

CONFIRMED.

NIMBUS TERRAFAUX, ZEBRON, MASTER SPLINTER AND CREATURE FROM THE BLACK LAGOON IN KP3.

FERGALITIES RETURN.

MARIACHI, STARVING ETHIOPIAN, AND CATHOLIC CLERGY SKIN PACKS CONFIRMED.

Well, you all got your Tremor now. Can we finally move on?

It won't be anything to do with the netcode. I can't think of an example of a game that's had its netcode rebuilt post-release.

Where's Fujin?

Even if it is improved, it doesn't guarantee GOOD netcode. Just better than the current shit we have to put up with right now. So unless MKX can boost it's netcode to KI or SFV levels, better luck next time guys.

Boon is full of false promises. He also said the starting roster for MKX would be bigger than MK9 at its biggest etc.

The other thing I was thinking is would they really bother improving the netcode if they don't plan on supporting the game past KP2 with more content and patches if Injustice 2 is on the horizon?

God, I fucking hope so. Tomorrow honestly can't come soon enough.

Yup. It's definitely GGPO.

Well if the game actually becomes playable online. I've always wanted to dig deeper into combos and fighting game strategies but it wasn't worth it without the ability to actually play online. I might actually get back into it beyond the occasional fights when friends/family are over.

It is self explanatory.

Impoved netkode. The web-series announcement aroundthe corner. KP2 , and if we raise our voices loud we can get a Fujin/Sareena stand alone pack.

Instead of wasting time crying, let's ask all togheter for Fujin and Sareena/Li Mei

(Personally prefer Sareena).

Hahaaa! Not to be a nagging bitch, but if its improved netcode (GGPO), they're fuckin 9 months too late. I'm thinking they've noticed the massive wave of negative responses on KP2 and have decided to offer some more content, eg Fujin, Rain, costumes, extra fatalities/brutalities.

GGPO sounds too good to be true. Let the countdown begin

Improved netcode would be great for the fifteen people that are even still playing this game.
