Mortal Kombat X's Challenge Towers Let You Try DLC Characters

Mortal Kombat X players who haven't purchased add-on characters will get a chance to take them for a test run from time to time, as part of the game's Challenge Towers mode.

Mortal Kombat X has three different Challenge Towers with rotating objectives - Quick Tower, Daily Tower, and Premiere Tower. On Twitter this weekend, the game's creator Ed Boon revealed that DLC characters will sometimes feature in the Premiere Tower, and when they do, everyone will be able to play them, regardless of whether or not they've purchased the character in question. 

Four DLC characters have been revealed so far: Jason Voorhees, Predator, Tanya, and Tremor. They're all included in the Kombat Pack, along with a selection of skins, and will also be available to purchase individually. 

Boon also outlined a profile image system, with different backgrounds, borders, and icons unlockable by playing through Challenge Towers. As well as creating a visual profile badge for each player, these options come with bonuses to things like experience points and Koins. In the example given by Boon, a background earned from the second Premiere Tower (the "MK1 Tower") gives +100 Koins per fatality, while the icon gives +100 XP per match win and the border gives +75 FXP per match win. 

Mortal Kombat X comes out this Thursday, April 16, for PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4. It's also headed to Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 later this year.

Pretty nice idea and will be nice to give Tremor, Jason and Predator a go (screw Tanya) before getting the kombat pack.

After watching the MKX Fatal 8 Tournament in the weekend I have definitely got a few characters I want to try that I probably never would have.

Nice of them to offer the dlc characters for everyone these challenge tower could be interesting.
