The false advertising of Mortal Kombat's Kombat Pack


Leave it to the kings of DLC

Warner Bros. is notorious for its preorder, DLC, and season pass bullshit, and Mortal Kombat X's Kombat Pack is no exception. Nicolas Jones sent us a tip about how he asked WB Games Support why the Kombat Pack didn't include all the DLC for the current season, as there have been various costume packs released that aren't included. WB's response:

"Thank you for your feedback. I understand your concern but the Kombat Pass is not a Season Pass and it was not advertised as one. It includes the specific DLC listed here."

But that claim doesn't stand up as it was clearly advertised as a season pass, especially when mentioned alongside preorders. EB GamesGameStopPSNAmazonBest BuyNewegg and even the Xbox One card available in stores either outright states it is a season pass or at least says you "Get everything MKX has to offer." I can't imagine all these stores pulled the phrase season pass out of thin air for MKX, nor that WB didn't have some kind approval of these ads, but that could very well be the case.

I've asked Warner Brothers Games for comment and will update upon response.
