These days Microtransactions have gotten to the point where it is expected to be seen in pretty much every game. Some games make it a pay-to-win model, where you can buy items in game that will bolster your character and make them more powerful, while others adopt a more cosmetic approach where in-game purchases only affect the way your character looks.
Thankfully Mortal Kombat 11’s microtransactions won’t be pay-to-win, according to a recent interview NetherRealms’ Ed Boon did with YouTuber Angry Joe. Boon spoke about the game where he was asked about the game’s microtransactions, and while he could not go into detail, he was quoted as saying, “We can’t get into specifics of it yet, but you won’t be angry.”
This was echoed once again in an interview with GameSpot where he told the publication, “Well, I guess you know, we absolutely divorced gameplay from any kind of advantages you could get. We really wanted to have it so you can’t buy your way to a better character. And honestly, for this game, we’re veering away from [that], we’re not gonna have loot boxes or anything like that.”
