Fatality 2: (Outside Sweep) Up, Down, Down, Down, High Punch. High Voltage, the studio behind the PC port of Mortal Kombat X, has released a new update that takes up over 15GB in size. NetherRealm Studios released a similar set of costumes for Mortal Kombat X with the Kold War Pack which saw three Russian-themed outfits added to the game with Motherland Sonya, Tundra Sub-Zero and Revolution Kano – though those weren’t exclusive to the country. As with every character in the game, Tanya comes with three different variations that provide a different style of moveset. If it connects successfully, the character goes into an animated sequence of powerful attacks (that shows close-up X-Ray animations of the damage being dealt internally). Comfortable to wear. It has much the same pros of the MA140 mask with the primary difference being it looks more unique. All in all, the skin looks kinda cool, in a silly way.
Tanya definitely looks much better than she did in the first images we saw of her before the release of Mortal Kombat X even. Now, even if this skin for Skarlet does turn out to be an exclusive to Russia, will it remain so? During a reveal event taking place in Moscow, Russia, the country’s special edition of the new fighting game was announced to come with a costume for Skarlet that will be exclusive to the region – for the time being at least. But, it is not a mere costume either, since a degree of skill is involved to “achieve” the fatality. Best comparison I can think of are costumes that can be unlocked by grinding, except instead of grinding, you have to master a skill to (consistently) obtain the fatality for “free”. The classic fatality moves in the Mortal Kombat series do not make winning easier, so gameplay is not simplified for people opening their wallets.
As you might be able to make out from the image above (and as Desctructoid points out), the Kold War skin seems to be exclusive to the Russian Special Edition of Mortal Kombat 11. At least, that’s what the current marketing material seems to suggest. The skin’s name will be Kold War, and, if the current promo material is anything to go by, it’ll be exclusive to the Russian special edition of MK11.
I’m fairly certain it’ll crop up as a DLC, because this is a WB game, after all. Will it launch worldwide as a DLC, or come along in the game’s complete edition? This is nothing new; for reasons that will forever mystify me, several characters from MK X also had Soviet-inspired costumes, like Sonya Blade and Sub-Zero. Guide to alternative costumes, challenge Tower, Codes mode Vs, secret clashes and secret characters from Mortal Kombat 9 . Deadpool co-creator Rob Liefeld pointed out that an alternative costume for Spawn in Mortal Kombat 11 resembles that of the Merc with the Mouth. Skarlet, the returning character in Mortal Kombat 11, will have a costume based on Soviet-era uniforms. Has already gotten the addition of one DLC character in the horror icon Jason Voorhees.
