In recent interview with Traub, he noted how players can use other systems to modify a character’s move-set or gameplay abilities. Hence, confirming MK11 gear system to be just cosmetic
Yup, NetherRealms pretty much recycle between Injustice and MK. This is why I'm not surprised to see some tweaks of the same old game play and design from Injustice 2 in the new MK. I'm sure if NR makes a new Injustice they'll just take MK 11 and add something minor.
What do they mean just like Injustice 2? Injustice 2 gear was more than just cosmetic.
After reading the article I've gotta say that the writer is all over the place and contradicts himself several times. He mentions a couple times that the gear in MK11 is cosmetic only, like Injustice 2, but then he mentions a couple other times that the MK11 gear being cosmetic only is what makes it different than Injustice 2 lol. Then, and this is the best part, he even includes a quote from a dev that says this: "Definitely. One of the major differences for Mortal Kombat 11 is that the gear itself has no stats. It’s cosmetic-only." So he even has a friggin' quote from a dev explaining that MK11's gear is DIFFERENT because its cosmetic only, yet he still contradicts that several times. He also doesn't know what the word "hence" means: "To some extent, NetherRealm Studios has moved the gear system from Injustice 2 to Mortal Kombat 11. Hence, there are remarkable differences." WHAT??? This guy needs to grasp reading comprehension and article editing. Because this is actually pretty comical to read.
Video Game Journalism. Not even once.
Exactly! Utter nonsense article. Makes it easy to see from some of the comments though who hasn't played injustice 2 but making fake statements based on this ridiculous article like they have.
Ummmm that’s awesome, what are you on about? Now abilities aren’t tied to gear pieces. Did you not watch the reveal lmao? You augment whatever gear piece you want to whatever ability and stats you want.... So you like abilities that you don’t want tied into gear pieces you like? Who the f*** would complain about this? I don’t understand lmao.
I just know we arent in here bashing netherrealm, mk, and injustice. I just know we arent.
Im just glad its in there.
Well duh. Tekken was the same way. It's only cosmetic. I expected this and I'm fine with it.
