Additionally, compatability packs for the game will be released throughout the summer, "in order to allow seamless online play with the new downloadable warriors." These packs will be free for all, and will be release alongside each new character. Each pack will also contain free "klassic" skins, the first of which will be Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3-inspired Cyrax and Sektor skins.
If you'd planned on getting all of the new fighters, the season pass seems like an okay deal, saving you five bucks for an early commitment. Each character will come complete with his or her own set of moves, arcade story, and two new Fatalities, so these aren't simple palette swaps. Whether or not they'll be worth your money will depend on how much Mortal Kombat you plan on playing this summer.
Will you be picking up the fighters? If you have an Xbox 360, will you purchase the Season Pass? PS3 owners, do you feel as if you've been snubbed by not being given the option, or are you happy you've got Kratos on your team?
