What can I get with microtransactions?
Mortal Kombat 11 features a great deal of character customization. You can change the way fighters like Raiden and Scorpion look, and can also equip gear which gives them advantages in single-player modes like the Towers of Time. The in-game store offers a rotating selection of skins — and some gear — which can be acquired for around 500 Time Krystals each.
Keep in mind that the majority of content has to be earned by playing the game. You can't purchase a lot of the items through the store because they can't be acquired through Time Krystals. Since gear and consumables can be found by opening chests in the Krypt, Time Krystals should be used to purchase skins that you really want.
How much do the microtransactions cost?
Time Krystals can be purchased in a number of bundles. The following packs are available through the in-game store on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and other platforms.
- 500 Time Krystals cost $5
- 1150 Time Krystals cost $10
- 2500 Time Krystals cost $20
- 5600 Time Krystals cost $40
Since each skin costs 500 Time Krystals, acquiring them through the in-game store can be quite expensive. However, if you really want Raiden to shine in that blue suit with gold inlay, you should consider purchasing a pack of Time Krystals.
