During a new “Kombat Kast” live stream new information was provided about Mortal Kombat 11. This included the premium currency called Time Crystals.

Time Crystals can be used to purchase cosmetic items directly. In addition, players can buy easy fatalities (14:55). The cosmetic items include skins but the easy fatalities are a bit more nefarious. These tokens allow players to perform a fatality instantly without a command. This wouldn’t be a terrible thing for those who have trouble performing such acclaimed moves but having to pay for them is another story.

Easy fatalities were introduced back in Mortal Kombat X and were heavily criticized. Many saw it as an infamous microtransaction that devalued the fatality system.

Mortal Kombat 11 is coming to Nintendo Switch, PC, PS4, and Xbox One on April 23.
