Controversy Erupts as Mortal Kombat 1 Introduces Paywalled Halloween Fatality
Fans Displeased with Premium Store Purchase Requirement
Mortal Kombat fans are in for a spook this Halloween season as the iconic fighting game series gears up for a seasonal twist. However, the introduction of a Halloween-themed Fatality has raised eyebrows due to its availability – or lack thereof.
As reported by IGN, the presence of the Halloween Fatality was first disclosed in the recent version 0.134 update. In a seemingly nonchalant manner, the update simply stated: “Halloween Fatality added to the Premium Store.”
At the time of writing, the Halloween Fatality isn’t available for purchase in the store yet. In response to inquiries, WB Games Support mentioned that it would become available on Friday, October 27. However, it’s not the arrival date that’s causing a stir; it’s the fact that it comes with a price tag.
