For those wishing for updates to Mortal Kombat 11 on PC and Nintendo Switch, unfortunately, the 1.06 update isn’t for you. The Mortal Kombat 11 1.06 update is only for PS4 and Xbox One. The update should hopefully find its way onto the PC version of the game at a later date, at least. For now, though, anyone who owns Mortal Kombat 11 on either PS4 or Xbox One can download the update right now. Here are just a few of the highlights:

Krypt Updates

Fans of the Krypt in Mortal Kombat 11 will be glad to know that several fixes and one big change have taken place thanks to the 1.06 update. Each and every Skeleton Key Gate will now reward you with some currency when you open them. A nice bonus, for sure. The rare Spear bug that halts progress has been removed, too. Now, you shouldn’t be locked out of the armory after you get the Spear. A couple of other fixes have also taken place.

Towers of Time Updates

Anyone who regulars the Towers of Time will be happy to find out that new Boss Fights and rewards have been added to the mode as well as new Tower Platform rewards. Some starting towers on a few tower platforms have had their difficulties adjusted, too.

Character Adjustments

Of course, what good would a fighting game update be without character balance adjustments? There are plenty of the things in the Mortal Kombat 11 1.06 update patch notes. Geras’s High and Mid parries, for example, will now work as they should against Gauntlet Slam. Frost’s Core Overload amp won’t take place after a Krushing Blow cinematic. There are plenty of little changes and fixes, and you can see them all in the full patch notes below.

General Fixes

On top of everything above, plenty of general fixes and changes have been made to Mortal Kombat 11. Move list corrections have taken place, AI logic has been improved, and several rare online desync causes have been ironed out just to name a few fixes. On top of this are two exciting additions, however. Several new Brutalities have been added to the game, and a brand-new Kombat league online mode has been added, too. Season one of this (the Season of Blood) will begin on June 18, 2019. Read more about everything in the full patch notes below.
