    Mortal Kombat (2011) Gameplay Hotfix Released

    When NetherRealm Studios celebrated their one year anniversary, the team offered a livestream of a staff tournament of Mortal Kombat (2011) featuring some new gameplay changes that have not been released. This morning, those changes became live with the latest online hotfix release. The changes will be in effect the next time you launch the game.

    The official hotfix notes for this release are now included below:

    You should no longer see online desyncs on Xbox that are related to alternate costumes or classic costume DLC packs.
    • With the exception of Human Cyrax and Human Sektor, everyone’s alternate costumes should behave the same as their primary costumes and have the exact same move properties.

    • Adjusted wakeup attacks’ window of execution and vulnerability.

    • Some low attacks, such as a handful of characters sweeps, were incorrectly able to be parried.

    • Fixed some cases where a player could get stuck in his reaction while landing.

    • Made some minor collision hitbox adjustments.

    • Made several gameplay balance adjustments.

    • General bug fixes.

    • For the full list of changes go to:

    Anyone with an Xbox 360 care to say if the GENERAL ONLINE LAG is fixed?

    I'm still waiting for the PS3 patch to come out.

    Re: Mortal Kombat (2011) Gameplay Hotfix Released

    Um, after this patch (or whatever the latest patch was), gameplay has annoyingly become more difficult and CHEAP like in MK2 and UMK3. Worst of all, Jade and Kitana got slower and/or the cpu got cheaper. Plus, my button commands for character's actions are delayed and sometimes wrong. For example, when I press down and triangle for my PS3 to do an uppercut, my character would crouch and stand back up right away with a punch instead of the intended uppercut. Plus, there are still bugs of Jade's fatalities (especially her Razorang) where the opponent's hair or piece of cloth would go through her arm while she is holding the decapitated head. Plus, her ponytail would make stupid bugs of going through her back sometimes when she does her "Half Mast". I hate these bugs and glitches, they make games look stupid in general. I tink Jade needs to be given attention and be buffed up for good. Oh also, Jade's Dodging Shadows should make her immune to Nightwolf's and Rain's thunder bolts, Scorpion's Hell Fire, and the beam that Quan Chi summons from the ground since I consider those projectiles.

    As far as I know, those are not bugs. It's game mechanics.
