Ed Boon Asks Fans To Choose Preferred MKX News

Since discovering the poll feature on Twitter, NetherRealm Studios Creative Director Ed Boon has taken to asking everything from movie preferences to most desired game content. He returned to the hot button topic of Mortal Kombat X this week, asking fans which news they'd most like to see:

In a poll of three options; 10,160 fans came down in favour of a GGPO supported Mortal Kombat XL update for PC. The 48% interested in PC gaming were closely followed by 41%, whose preference would be a new game-wide patch to balance or "buff" gameplay of preferred characters. Around 1117 fans chose a fourth season of the competitive Electronic Sports League at a distant 11%.

The update options notably omit any release of more downloadable characters for the game, which released disc copies of a "komplete" Mortal Kombat XL edition in March.

With MKXL for PC now on the table, speculation is wide open to new character additions through a late port release. The practice has been frequent throughout Mortal Kombat history, with Mortal Kombat Gold notably introducing klassic characters to the Sega Dreamcast version of Mortal Kombat 4. Delayed Nintendo releases saw character exclusives as recently as Deception (Goro and Shao Kahn) and Armageddon (Khameleon). This could theoretically explain previous polls asking fans about their favourite omitted male and female characters.

The 2015 PC release of Mortal Kombat X was plagued with issues on launch -- one of two Warner Brothers third-party ports released with devastating results. Attempts to fix problems were short lived, eventually leaving Mortal Kombat X short on updates, and struggling with unresolved reports of functional flaws. The first Kombat Pack was released to the PC before support was officially abandoned.

New content would be a developer mea culpa welcomed by PC fans, who've been understandably frustrated with the state of their purchase. The addition of the GGPO rollback method used to enhance online play for consoles would also go lengths to extending the life of the fighter.

RE: Ed Boon Asks Fans To Choose Preferred MKX News

In my opinion none of those three options, would be what I PERSONALLY would consider "Big News"...I am happy for those who are able to afford a powerful enough PC to even play this game on it that they will hopefully get all the content that they deserve, but I was really hoping for some more dlc content on the console versions as well. Even it is simply more character skins. Especially for the dlc characters. Some more Klassic Packs would be nice as well...

I spent less on my laptop than I would have on a new console... plus I don't have to deal with stupid monthly subscriptions for online play.
