With Mortal Kombat 11 now out in the wild and the community actively working to master the game’s fighting roster, developer, NetherRealm, is hard at work to refine and fine-tune the experience based on player feedback. The first Mortal Kombat 11 update aims to improve the experience, addressing a number of key matchmaking, AI, and gameplay issues.

As part of the latest update, NetherRealm is also gifting players a bunch of in-game currency in response to claims that Mortal Kombat 11 artificially forces players to purchase microtransactions. In response, the free currency bundle includes 500,000 Koins, 500 Hearts, 1,000 Souls, and 1,000 Time Crystals. It’s available for PS4 players from today, with Xbox One and Nintendo Switch to receive it at a later day, likely in the coming days.
