Mortal Kombat 1 players discover an unscrupulous loophole to gain free skins for Mortal Kombat 1.
Mortal Kombat 1 players have found an efficient method of collecting skins without spending real cash.
Mortal Kombat 1 has garnered much praise since its release, yet many fans continue to criticize its microtransactions and associated fees.
This entry into the brutal fighting games franchise boasts some of the finest graphics ever seen, plenty of creative fatalities and some spectacular DLC fighters from Invincible: Omni-Man as well as The Boys antagonist Homelander; though Anthony Starr will no longer provide voice acting services for him.
Unfortunately, all this goodness has been undermined by in-game purchases like recent holiday-themed fatalities that cost $10 for just one finishing move. Although NetherRealm attempted to address fan outrage with some free downloads and microtransactions announced later, more microtransactions are only fuelling fan anger further.
NetherRealm allowed players to purchase skins using in-game currency during its inaugural season; though once that season concluded, these skins would no longer be available; only to bring them back for sale in season two at actual costs.
But clever fans have devised an ingenious workaround. A player on PS5 posted on social media claiming content from last season of the game could be purchased using in-game currency by changing your PS5 date to any date prior to 6 November and using “date change for PS5”
Once purchased, simply take what you need and change back the date on your consoles without incurring further expenses to achieve this result. You should retain everything purchased thus far without needing to spend additional money for storage costs or replacement purposes.
Uncertain if this offer only exists on PS5, or can also be replicated across platforms, the trick appears to still work so if there’s anything from last season you want, now might be your opportunity.
Mortal Kombat 1 can be played on Xbox Series X/S, PlayStation 5, PC and Nintendo Switch platforms.
