Mortal Kombat Devs Offer Friendship Over Botched Patch

Yo jurors! If you read our Mortal Kombat X review, you know that we advised against buying it at the time. Well, the review was published a day ahead of a major patch and there was some worry that the patch would fix things up enough to need a revision to the review. Ummm, nope. The patch did more harm than good, by corrupting and deleting players save games, to a game that was already plagued with issues since launch.

The developers feel like they’ve finally got a handle on the game’s myriad issues and have now issued a revised patch and an apology to affected players:

“We understand that some PC players lost their save data before we were able to correct an issue with the most recent patch. An updated patch was recently released to add Jason and all of the other patch improvements back into the game and no other players should experience save loss when installing the patch. We are truly sorry if the recent patch did cause you to lose your game save. Affected players should be hearing from us soon with details on how we are addressing the situation.

If you lost your save due to the patch and have not heard from us by Friday May 8th at 12pm EST, please submit a Customer Service help request by visiting support.wbgames.com and selecting “Ask for Help” from the menu at the top. Select “Gameplay Help Request” as your Question Type, “Save Game issue” as your Specific Question, and include your Steam Account Name in your help request description. We will make sure that you are helped out if you were impacted by this issue.

-The Mortal Kombat Team”

Time will tell if this apology assuages players' fears that the PC version is getting the short end of the stick with MKX. Time will also tell if this is the last time MKX has patch problems...the track record isn’t looking so good right now.

What say you jurors? Are you affected by High Voltage Software's Friendship? Or have you already given the idea of buying MKX an uppercut into the pit? Let us know in the comments.

For more news on this and other games, keep coming to Pixel Judge. This news is adjourned.
