I’m having a lot of fun with Mortal Kombat 11, even if it is helping me realise just how much I suck at Mortal Kombat. The game is mechanically great, barring a few stumbles around its Fatal Blows. If there’s something that’s definitely worth criticising though, it’s the horrible grind, that coupled with the ridiculously difficult towers, make earning the game’s unlockables more trouble than its worth.

Earlier this week, NetherRealm said it would be fixing things soon. Now, they’re released details on when the patch might be available for different platforms, what it’s fixing, and also what sort of rewards they’re dishing out to players as a way of saying sorry for being dicks.

“We’re dedicated to bringing you the best experience possible and working to get the latest updates and patches live across all platforms,” a NetherRealms community person said on Reddit. We’re aware of the difficulty issues in Towers of Time, and while we’ve made some changes, rest assured there are more on the way. “

To make up for lost time, all players on all platforms will received the following bits of in-game currency:

  • 500,000 Koins
  • 500 Hearts
  • 1,000 Soul Fragments
  • 1,000 Time Krystals

The changes to the difficulty in the towers and the “gifts” will come to the PS4 and Xbox One versions of the game early next week. Unfortunately the Switch and PC ports are a little behind, with two patches coming for each platform. The PC port is hardest hit. There are many reports that while not as bad as the abysmal Mortal Kombat X job, it’s still not a very good port and needs quite a bit of fixing.

Here are the full patch notes for each platform:
