What's new

Steam database achievements - Roster speculation

https://i.redd.it/ncebrt3lowl21.jpg

What is this? I hope it is real. For the sake of Shang, Rain and Mileena, three of my ultimate favorite characters.

The guy claims that Sindel, Fujin, Havik, and two guests are also DLC, Michael Myers and Spawn.
Woudn't bet on it. The description is overly elaborate and reeks of fan fiction. Usually inside information comes in the form of brief details. Also I'm not convinced about secret characters (even with Paulo's comment) because it's bad for e-sports. If true, however, wew I think the MK9 roster has a new challenger for the belt.

I remember the beginning of February, a guy just said: Kollector is a new character and looks like a goblin with multiple arms.
Everybody: "The description is overly elaborate".

You're kidding me if you don't see the ocean of difference between that and a paragraph going into unnecessary detail about the names of Krypt subregions.

I'm not kidding you sir. You just said exactly what everybody said about the Kollector first "unbeliveable" leak. You are not wrong, is your right to believe or not, but there's a thing we can agree: overly elaborate descriptions were made before, and they are the truth now. About comparing the two: You're kidding me saying the first description of Kollector was not overly elaborate too. Was a very detailed description, about shokans, cyborgs, goblins... A lot of them being unnecessary, but anyway, a truth.

Any Kollector descriptions I read seemed fairly straightforward. I'm not sure I saw the one you're referring to, but if I did I wasn't one of the people brushing it off based on how the info was worded (not that I can't be wrong like them). But we'll see soon enough if we get a peek at the Krypt, and again I'll stress that I'd love the info to be true, but I'm diametrically opposed to believing news so holy to help keep my expectations in check.

Minor update on the Steam Database:

They've added trophy-ID046 inching us closer to those 90 Achievements on launch. Which is absolutely mad. It's awesome though.

I'm excited to see what all they're going to pack into this game! I'm also kinda confident/hoping that there will be 10 DLC. 6 in KP1 and 4 in KP2. So we can hopefully cap the achievements off at an even 100. But that's just me needing it to be an even number and 100 would just be perfect lmao.

What are the chances of these unlockable characters we've been hearing so much about being hidden away in there now that the numbers seem so high? (coughcoughMileenacoughcoughShangcoughcoughRaincoughcoughPLEASE)

Now we're just waiting for them to add trophy-ID002 and trophy-ID003 to give us the full 90. After that, we can only wait and see if they add more or if that's that for launch. (It makes sense for achievements to be getting finished off now that the game should be close to going gold.)

God every time I read this stuff my hope/excitement goes right back up! Hope this is true, game will be awesome even without those three but that would definitely sweeten the pot.

Here's to hoping for my boy Smoke as DLC!

It gets harder and harder to keep my excitement in check, but I suppose a quick peek into the Krypt on launch day will quickly tell us if this holds water or not. I'm still staying cautiously optimistic. Even a leak that gets 90% right still gets 10% wrong.

And if it is true that those three are locked behind the Krypt, we can only hope that it won't be another EA-esque 'pride and accomplishment' fiasco. We had the option to blow $20 to unlock everything in the Krypt right off the bat in MKX, maybe we'll get something similar here. Still shitty, but it beats lootboxes.

Sounds believable to me. I was wondering why the krypt was under the konquest tab and not next to the kollection stuff. 4 levels of some kind of battle. It could be like mobile where you go through the different regions but that would suck. I bet it’s shaolin monk style, 4 levels, beating a level gets you a boss unlock. Mileena, rain, Shang and Shao makes sense for unlockable bosses. Well maybe not rain but the other 3 do.

I'm in the same damn boat man lmao. I spent over a week stressed out over whether or not Mileena is in. I deadass was going through the 7 stages of grief.

I finally reached Acceptance but that only lasted about a day and the cycle has now started right back over. I'm hovering somewhere between Denial and Depression so we'll see where we sit in a couple days lmfao

I don't mind them being locked behind the krypt. It'd finally give me a reason to go through and unlock everything and not just completely avoid it. I'm sure they'll give you the option to pay and unlock it all though.

It makes sense though especially Shao Kahn being an unlockable in Krypt as well to people who don't preorder. Preordering just gets you him quicker. I'd like that to be the case. It could make sense too since he's in the story and everything and not just tacked on.

Suddenly the thing I wanna see the most is the Krypt.....

Cheap Kollector Rip Off
The Krypt is Def something i want to see

NRS is hyping it up alot more, which makes me think that there is def something big about

Steam leaks also support it.

I read somewhere else that the potential Krypt unlockable characters are obtained by unlocking character-specific items - kinda like the items you had to get in MKX to progress through that Krypt . So maybe it's not unlocking all of coffins, etc per section (which they will probably make purchasable again to make more money), but instead turn it into a quest type sub-game

I wouldn't mind that at all. The only thing I've heard is that it's in 3rd person and that there are cameos in the krypt, but I don't think I believe that tbh.

The only legit Krypt info we have to go off of is that one of the achievements says:
TROPHY_ID_RUN_5_MILES_IN_KRYPT

So it's gotta be fairly big, and another says:
TROPHY_ID_SPEAR_50_HANGING_BODIES_IN_KRYPT

Although, what's a location that has a lot of hanging bodies.....? THE LIVING FOREST. I'M JUST SAYING. Where's Mileena supposed to be unlocked? THE LIVING FOREST. I'M JUST SAYING.

I feel like they might be saving game modes for last so we may not see Krypt for a while if at all before the game releases.

I wouldn't mind a mini-Konquest style Krypt tbh with a few characters showing up and talking to you and giving you stuff. Would be cool and a neat way to progress through it. Make the Krypt a bit more linear I guess.

Yeah a conquest Krypt wouls definitely give the game more of a complete feel . Like in MK9, I loved the idea of the challenge tower because it was kinda different than just fight, repeat, fight, repeat .

Exactly. MKX's Krypt was neat, but it was just collecting stuff and walking around. Which I get the point of the Krypt is to unlock stuff, but there can be more flavor there. It doesn't just have to be a walking simulator with jumpscares. Add some spice to it. Toss in some characters and have them say a line or two and that's that. Something to keep an eye out for and something to keep folks interested. Have there be a "You need to get this item to this place" fetch quest type of thing. Use it to guide players through the Krypt.

Also, Imagine how fcking dope it would be to be walking through the Living Forest and when you unlock Mileena...she's a jumpscare. She drops down on top of you with her teeth in your face. It'd be a neat callback to her MK9 win animation and would be the only jumpscare I would ever approve of lol.

Now they use proper trophy IDs rather than "TROPHY_PERFORM_TWO_FATALITIES_WITH", it does confirm that the steamDb leak was intentional, even if we already knew that since the beginning.

Unlocking Shao Kahn through the Krypt ? I don't believe it, sorry. But I do hope that we'll be able to unlock Mileena and Shang Tsung.

But I think the leak is right on Shinnok being unplayable.

It doesn't confirm that at all. That's how many devs do cheevs. The steamDB leak happened because just like the 500000 million other steamdb leaks across a billion other games, people never take steamDB into account when updating builds.
