Omni-Man’s announcer voice will set you back a hefty $10, even if you’ve purchased the entire Kombat Pack.
Mortal Kombat 1 enthusiasts find themselves deeply dissatisfied with the game’s monetization strategy, a sentiment that is gaining widespread acknowledgment. The frustration initially stemmed from discontent over paid seasonal fatalities, excessively priced coveted skins, and the premium store’s rotational system. The latest point of contention revolves around the Omni-Man voice announcer pack, with fans expressing disappointment upon realizing it is a separate purchase not included for those who bought the initial Kombat Pack.
The issue was brought to light by a Reddit user named South_Bathroom on the Mortal Kombat subreddit. South_Bathroom argued that items like voice announcer packs should be part of the comprehensive Kombat Pack or included in character Battle Passes without additional charges. This viewpoint resonated with many others, some of whom were under the impression that the item was originally free, sparking a fresh wave of discontent and labeling the move as “DLC for your DLC.”
Certain fans speculate that this might be a deliberate tactic by NetherRealm to manipulate consumers into purchasing unwanted items. According to a Reddit user named GrimmTrixx, individuals may have been misled into buying the Omni-Man voice announcer pack, mistakenly thinking it included the character himself. The voice announcer pack is priced at a steep $10, exceeding the $8 cost of the character. Many reasonably assumed the pricier option included the character, leading to accusations of “scummy design.”
Critics argue that NetherRealm failed to make it sufficiently clear that the purchase is for a voice announcer pack rather than the actual character. While there is a microphone icon next to the character’s portrait, some argue that this detail might be easily overlooked, particularly when excited or in a hurry.
For Mortal Kombat 1 fans, this adds to the existing grievances about the premium store’s perceived predatory practices since its launch. This issue compounds the recent controversies surrounding pricing, creating a growing list of concerns for players.
In unrelated Mortal Kombat 1 news, series creator Ed Boon disclosed that Omni-Man was not his initial choice from Robert Kirkman’s creations for a guest character. Boon had initially pursued Michonne from The Walking Dead as the series’ first female guest character. The reasons for the shift to Omni-Man remain unknown, leaving fans hopeful for the inclusion of a female guest character in Kombat Pack 2.
