Mortal Kombat X Quitality and Fight Stick Support Revealed
NetherRealm Studios has found an answer to all the rage quitters out there who abandon their matches early. Also, Mortal Kombat X's fight stick support has been revealed.
During last night's big NetherRealm Studios game stream of Mortal Kombat X, its studio members revealed a new finishing move, the "Quitality." The Quitality happens for players who quit or disconnect in the middle of an online fight, resulting in the other player getting an automatic win and his or her opponent's head to explode in a way that would make David Cronenberg proud. You can watch the video above, courtesy of GamesHQMedia, to watch a Quitality happen, or watch NetherRealm's entire stream featured below. The Quitality lets the non-quitter feel a bit better about getting a disconnect or a player randomly leaving them in the middle of a fight. We hope other fighting game franchises will learn from this experience.
NetherRealm Studios and Mortal Kombat co-creator Ed Boon announced that your last-gen fight sticks on the PlayStation 3 will be compatible with the PlayStation 4 edition of the MKX. NetherRealm Studios has hired Lab Zero Games to use their PS3-to-PS4 fight stick driver in Mortal Kombat X, meaning you can use your favorite PS3 arcade stick on your PS4. This suggests that Sony certainly has the capabilities to make last-gen peripherals work with the PS4, but just want to continue encouraging people to buy new accessories.
Here's the massive video where the team at NetherRealm Studios revealed the new Quitalities, which also gives us a special look at Mileena and Takeda:
Mortal Kombat X will debut on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC on April 14. High Voltage Software's versions of MKX for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 have been pushed back to summer.
