Those clinging onto last-gen will have to wait to beat ’em up in Mortal Kombat X
It looks like those still making the most of their PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 consoles will have to wait a little while longer for Mortal Kombat X as publisher Warner Bros. has revealed that the last-gen versions of the game will release this summer, instead of the simultaneous release alongside the PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4 versions on April 14.
The last-gen versions are being developed by an out-side studio, High Voltage Software, and it seems they need a little while longer to further polish the game. High Voltage is known best for their Wii shooter, The Conduit, and has worked on a handful of ports in recent years. Unfortunately no real explanation was given by Warner Bros. but here’s their official statement:
“Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment today confirmed that the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions of Mortal Kombat X being developed by High Voltage Software will release this summer. The Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and Windows PC versions will be available April 14.”
The news quietly slipped out as Warner Bros. revealed that Friday the 13th’s Jason Vorhees will be making a special appearance in the game for anyone who purchases the game’s season pass, otherwise known as the Kombat Pack. The Kombat Pack will unlock a bunch of the game’s DLC early for its owners as well as giving them access to Vorhees, two Klassic Kombatants, and another unannounced special guest.
In the UK the Kombat Pack is included in the Mortal Kombat X Premium Edition, or it costs £24.99 when bought separately.
