Evolution is hands down the largest, and most important fighting game tournament of the year. As such, it’s not surprising that developers are often eager to add to the prize pools of their games at the event. This year, Warner Bros. Interactive and NetherRealm Studios are doing just that by adding $50,000 to the prize pool for Mortal Kombat X at Evo 2016. This matches the $50,000 bonus that they added to last year’s tournament at Evo.

With Mortal Kombat X having established a solid tournament following, this pot bonus seems to indicate that both companies are committed to supporting their games and their community when it comes to competition. Here’s hoping that they can continue this support in the future for both Mortal Kombat X, as well as their upcoming Injustice 2.
