Mortal Kombat’s Latest Patch Introduces Combo Tagging and More!

Mortal Kombat 1 was released on September 19th. Since then, NetherRealm Studios has been at work balancing characters and improving the game’s quality of life. The most recent patch, released on October 23rd, brings a lot to the table.

Among the most notable improvements is the addition of combo tagging. Tagging is when you display selected moves and combos on the screen while playing. It makes learning moves easier and can help when building combos. It’s strange it wasn’t in Mortal Kombat 1 before, but many players are definitely glad it’s here now. There have been some changes to Mortal Kombat 1’s characters, as well.

Cyrax’s horizontal copter cameo now costs a full cameo meter, something many players have been asking for since release. A peculiar nerf includes the broody cryomancer Bi-Han, a.k.a. Sub-Zero. As if he wasn’t already lacking in the powerful combo department, a malfunction in his midair ice-clone has caused even more problems. On a side note, even though there has supposedly been a Halloween fatality added to the store, many haven’t seen such an option, myself included.
