In last night’s special Kombat Kast for Mortal Kombat X, the NetherRealm team showed off the sheer number of balance changes coming to MKX in today’s big patch. From serious nerfs to Alien and Demolition Sonya, to sizable buffs to Goro, Kenshi, Jason, and a couple more kombatants, these changes should shake up competitive play quite drastically, especially with the general engine changes.
Running and cancelling into a dash now costs more energy, and getting hit during a run now drains 50 energy. NetherRealm have also a “Kounter” message that appears on screen whenever you successfully land a counterattack or punish. You can read the raft of changes over on the official patch notes page and watch the Kombat Kast VOD on Twitch to see all of the changes in motion.
