Seems like buying a “Pass” for upcoming and released DLC is the way to go anymore as Warner Bros. and NetherRealm Studios have announced the Season Pass for Mortal Kombat. The Season Pass is available right now for purchase through Xbox LIVE for 1200 MSP. Here is a little more about the Season Pass.
Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and NetherRealm Studios are excited to announce the Mortal Kombat Season Pass which will offer Mortal Kombat fans an added incentive to buy all four new Add-on warriors at one time for a reduced price instead of when purchasing them individually. The first Mortal Kombat downloadable warrior, Skarlet, will be available for download starting June 21st and will be followed by Kenshi, Rain, and an unannounced new entrant to the Mortal Kombat tournament! Each warrior will come with a full move set, a ladder arcade story ending and two fatalities.
Available for purchase now, the Mortal Kombat Season Pass will allow users to buy all four downloadable warriors as a package for 1200 Microsoft points. Each individual warrior can be purchased when they release for 400 Microsoft points. Each warrior will become unlocked for download as they become available throughout the summer.
Further, in order to allow for seamless online play with the new downloadable warriors, free compatibility packs will be required to download with the release of each new warrior. As an added incentive, each compatibility pack will come with two FREE klassic skins – the first of which are being released with Skarlet will be Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3 inspired Cyrax and Sektor. Gamers who purchase the Mortal Kombat Season Pass (or individual Add-on content) will automatically get the free klassic skins when they download each warrior. Those who do not purchase the Mortal Kombat Season Pass or the Add-ons, will be able to download the compatibility packs for free and have access to the klassic skins as well.
If you remember Rockstar announced the Rockstar Pass a few weeks ago that gave us access to released and upcoming DLC for L.A. Noire for a reduced price than if we were to purchase all the DLC alone. This brings me to a question, is this a good way of getting us to buy the DLC for our favorite games or is just another way to get our hard earned money by nickel and diming us to death. Let us know what you think.
