Mortal Kombat 1: Fun Feature From Previous Games Returns! [VIDEO]

Mortal Kombat 1 has adopted a similar “Quitalities” approach to in-match exits as its predecessors.



There’s nothing more annoying than when you’ve completely wiped out your opponent in a brawler, only to have them throw a tantrum and pull the plug mid-match. NetherRealm has already come up with a fun way to deal with cowardly takedowns in Mortal Kombat X. It’s called “Quitalities”: the quitter either head-butts pretty or, in the case of Mortal Kombat 11, impales himself on a giant boulder. It beats the classic “oops, sorry” shutdown screen. It turns out, the feature will thankfully return in Mortal Kombat 1.

Mortal Kombat 1’s stress test took place over the weekend – sadly only on Xbox and PlayStation – allowing fans to test four fighters and three support players in a handful of stages offline or online against other players.

It seems that some players took the “stress” part of the stress test a little too literally online. People faced more than a few angry quitters over the weekend.

On the bright side, it was a great glimpse into the new “Quitalities” of the game. Instead of blowing heads off or breaking rocks this time, characters break their necks to escape brutal beatings. Ouch! The animation is very nice, though. The stage has gone to a noir colour palette, while the eerie sound of bones crunching pierces your earcups. It may not be everyone’s favourite, but it’s a very Mortal Kombat way to get away from the match.

Hopefully, PC players won’t have to wait long to get into future betas or stress tests. The console one closed yesterday (June 26). No doubt there will be another chance to play the game before its release on September 19. Let’s hope NetherRealm manages to trim down the 100GB mammoth install size by then.
