Ed Boon, the lead designer of Mortal Kombat X, made a very exciting announcement for the game on his Twitter account today. The game will feature a section in the Challenge Tower called Premiere Towers that will let you play as DLC characters even if you don’t own them.
You’ll still need to purchase the characters to play as them anywhere outside of these specific towers, but this will allow everyone to take these characters out for a test run. This is phenomenal as it will allow players to try out characters and know exactly which ones are worth purchasing for themselves.
It’s one thing to read up on a characters moves, watch them on streams, and fight against them online, and it’s another to have them in your own hands and play as them. Giving players these special challenges will let them experiment with DLC characters before purchasing them and see whether or not they’re someone they’ll enjoy playing with.
Be sure to let us know what you think of the Premiere Towers in the comments below.
