So... About 3 Aftermath Skin Packs...

I really didn't want to open this thread but, here we are again. I can't stop wondering what is going on at WB and NRS.

2 months later, we still don't have a single out of 3 skin packs released or at least revealed. Some of you will probably say: "They are just skins". Yes, they are just skins, but skins that people paid for. I know that they were supposed to be released "over time" but does it hurt to give at least a minimum of communication and transparency to your fans and customers? People that pre-ordered or bought Aftermath to support you day one.
 
I wonder if it has anything to do with the pandemic. I know Boon has said that aftermath was mostly finished when it hit so it wouldn't surprise me if anything after that would see a delay.

While I always want more communication, to plays devil's advocate, if they don't have a firm release date yet, i doubt they want to give a tentative date because if they don't hit it, that'll just anger fans and on the flip side constantly saying 'soon' seems to annoy the fanbase as well.

Seems like a damned if you do damned if you don't scenario.

I suspect that they are holding up this purposely .... in order to present with KP2, kinda, 3 skins packs remaning, but , they will announce 3 remaining characters to complet with the previous ones from Aftermath, and name it this Kombat Pack 2, and to be released along this year until beggining of 2021 .... for each character, one of the skins packs remaining will come up with

later in 2021, they will announce the final pack, Kombat Pack 3, with the last characters, 5 of them, and this, complete the 42 total characters that were datamined

Ed said in recent interview that everything is going according to plans when it comes to MK11. And that they finished Aftermath before the pandemic started. So idk.

Maybe that's a good thing. I don't see why would they delay the release of only skin packs for so long if there wasn't anything bigger planned with it. Maybe more characters? Stages? Or maybe they'll release them with that KL rework and Krypt KL shrine if the leaks are true.

This is my belief. I think we'll be getting a skin pack when the supposed Krypt expansion and KL rework come.

It's still so unbelievable to me how many people were totally fine with that price point. $20 less than the entire game, yet it's only 3 characters and a short story mode. First Kombat Pack was $40 and we got TWICE as many characters and who knows how many skins.
Tbf, story mode also gave a lot of skins and gear for free while others have to spend a lot of krystals for it if they want them and they aren't always available either. I'm not sure if you can get them any other way. Same for new outros which I haven't even seen in store yet.
 
I almost forgot about these skins honestly, they should just soft reveal something out of this pack, even if it's not paired with a reveal of next KP characters, but I'm afraid that's what they're going for.

40 bucks for 3 characters is ok but delayed skin packs are not huh?
I still don't understand how people were OK with this price. I mean, the costume packs are obviously all going to be obtainable with crystals. Characters are seperately available for a total of 18 bucks. Friendships, new stages, balance changes and stage fatals are free of charge. So you basically pay all this money for a storymode you could watch on YouTube.

Shang's Bad Ending Emperor armor is worth the $40 alone.

I never bought Aftermath, just Fujin so far, and I have his story mode reward items and skins. I got them from the random tower rewards.

Yeah I don't think Fujin has any story specific gear and skins. Neither does Sheeva. Could be wrong though. I know Shang has it and Lao and I think Cassie too. Noob, Johnny, Baraka have story gear as well etc.

I'm very certain I unlocked stuff for Fujin via Story Mode, however whether it's exclusive to Story Mode or not, I can't say.

Did you misread my post or something? This has nothing to do with what I said? Lmao
It has everything to do with what you said. Gear/skins that you got from towers is not exclusive to Aftermath story mode. There are gear items/skins that are exclusive to Aftermath story mode or Premium Shop (for now).

The secret is they will be Wonder Woman 84 skins and since that won't be out until October now, well.... :p:D

Probably in August or September there'll be something, seriously speaking...

Oh, I get it, you were just completely wrong. Fujin has gear specific to story mode, and his story mode-worn skin is unlockable from story mode only, listed in the Kustomize menu. I was saying that I unlocked the skin, labeled to be unlocked by story, from a random tower and I do not own the Aftermath DLC. SO, no, I dont think there are gear and skins locked to the story. Ill try with Kung Lao today, but again, I just got Fujins Story costume.
