MKX Will Let You Try DLC Characters Before Buying

Try before you buy is always an attractive hook.

Let's say you might want to pick up some of the Mortal Kombat X DLC characters but you're on the fence.

Well, give 'em a try and see if you like 'em. Franchise creator Ed Boon revealed on Twitter that the game's Challenge Towers will let you test out new characters even if you don't own them. However, of the three Towers, only the Premiere Tower will occasionally feature one of those DLC fighters. In other words, you might have to wait a bit for one to show up, but at least you get to sample without purchasing.

Won't it be cool to be able to check out Jason Voorhees (from "Friday the 13th" movie lore), Predator, Tremor and the like? If you're already resolved to buy them all, you can always pick up the Kombat Pack for $30. Mortal Kombat X will launch on Tuesday, April 14 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.

That's a cool idea.
The videos of the fatalities though are so disgusting I don't think I'll be able to get into this one.

Which is ironic considering your icon is from Ninja Gaiden, a series that is also quite gruesome.

Still, just a game. That's what Mortal Kombat is known for.

I watched a video of Jax crushing a guy's arms into him, then ripping his skull open like a PEZ dispenser, after which he extinguished his cigar on the makeshift ash-tongue-tray exposed from the flipped top head, while blood was gurgling up out of the guy's esophagus, complete with a little foam pool of bubbles collecting from the orifice.

I can live with the usual blood splashes and limb chops but when the cam is forced on brutal murder for like 20 seconds or more, zoomed in close, with much detail, it makes me squirm and disgusted. It's just too much and too gross.

Including them in the core game in the first place is better. I don't mind paid DLC for guest characters like Jason and Predator, or for non returning classic characters. But, when you make new characters like Tremor because the fans wanted him, and he's in the new story , it's weak they make you pay for him.

This is actually a very good idea and here's hoping other fighting games follow this route with their DLC characters as well.
