Mortal Kombat X Challenge Towers will rotate in DLC characters

Those that would like to try out any of Mortal Kombat X's downloadable characters before they buy them will be able to do so, thanks to Mortal Kombat X's Challenge Towers.


With Mortal Kombat X set to release next month, NetherRealm won't waste much time before starting its DLC releases. Of course, consumers are rightfully wary of Season Pass deals and may wonder whether the investment will be worthwhile. So it should come as something of a relief that the developer is planning to allow a rotating "try before you buy" kind of deal with the game's Challenge Towers.

"We have way more challenges and they're broken up into what we're calling Living Towers," Mortal Kombat creator Ed Boon told Angry Joe (via Shoryuken). "And every time you turn the game on, there's going to be three towers in the Living Towers section. One changes every hour, one changes every day, and one is called the Premier Tower, which is kind of like an event tower. So for instance, if Jason comes along, you're going to have a Jason tower that you play as Jason. And you can even use that tower if you didn't purchase Jason. So it's really cool, it gives the players a taste of what the character and what it's like to play them."

There's no confirmation on when the DLC is set to release, though the folks at Test Your Might appear to have a leaked EB Games ad that point to a tentative schedule. The ad points to Jason from Friday the 13th releasing just 12 days after the game's release, with the other three characters set to arrive every two weeks.
