There’s nothing extra annoying than completely rinsing your opponent in a preventing game, solely to have them throw a tantrum and pull the plug mid-match. NetherRealm devised a enjoyable approach to cope with cowardly disconnectors again in Mortal Kombat X with “Quitalities,” where the loser finishes themselves with a neat head explosion or, in Mortal Kombat 11’s case, an enormous rock impaling them. It beats the basic “oops, sorry” disconnection display and fortunately, it is making a return within the new entry.

Mortal Kombat 1’s stress check came about over the weekend—on Xbox and PlayStation solely, sadly—letting followers check out 4 fighters and three helps throughout a handful of levels offline, or in opposition to different gamers on-line. It looks like some gamers took the “stress” a part of the stress check a little bit too actually on-line, with folks dealing with various rage quitters throughout the weekend.

On the brilliant facet, it gave us have a look at the brand new flavour of Quitality Mortal Kombat 1 is bringing. As an alternative of head explosions or rock impalings, this time characters are taking to snapping their very own necks to flee brutal beatings. Ouch. It is a neat animation although, with the stage slipping right into a noir color palette because the spine-tingling sound of crunching bones penetrates your earholes. Maybe not everybody’s cup of tea, however a really Mortal Kombat method of disconnecting from the match.

Hopefully, PC gamers will not have to attend lengthy to be included in future betas or stress checks. The console one is wrapping up at the moment (June 26) and there’ll little doubt be one other alternative to play earlier than its September 19 launch date. Let’s simply hope NetherRealm manages to cull its mammoth 100GB set up dimension earlier than then.
