Mortal Kombat 11 Patch Notes June 2019 PC and Switch Update | Shang Tsung and Kombat League

The Mortal Kombat 11 patch notes for the PC and Switch versions have finally dropped. While they do contain fixes and updates that are already found in the PS4 and Xbox One versions of the game, they also include Shang Tsung, the game’s first DLC character. The game’s first ranked season is also included in the big catch up patch. While the PC and Switch patch notes are mostly the same, there are some slight differences, as noted in the later sections.

Mortal Kombat 11 Patch Notes June 2019 PC and Switch Update | Shang Tsung

Shang Tsung, everyone’s favorite Mortal Kombat sorcerer, surprisingly came to the PC and Switch on the same day as the PS4 and Xbox One, despite the late patch. Only Kombat Pack owners can play as him now. Everyone else on all platforms has to wait until June 25 to purchase him for $5.99.

You can currently test him out in the Towers of Time as he has a trial tower running until late in the day on June 24 at 8 am PT. You’ll also probably run into him online so it might be a good idea to experiment playing as and against him. If you do play as him, here’s how to do his second fatality.

Mortal Kombat 11 Patch Notes June 2019 PC and Switch Update | Kombat League

Speaking of playing online, the game’s first online ranked season has finally started. Named the Season of Blood, players can rise up through nine different ranks when playing ranked sets. Different placements net you different rewards as well as finishing daily and seasonal challenges. These rewards are currently exclusive to the Kombat League so you might want to get to it, as this season ends on July 16.

Mortal Kombat 11 Patch Notes June 2019 PC and Switch Update | Small tweaks and gameplay adjustments

While still not a big balance patch, this update adds the new stuff from the recent PS4 and Xbox One update. Easy Krushing Blows in practice mode, new hidden brutalities, the ability to easily switch to tournament variations in practice mode, new tower rewards, and best-of-three ranked sets (which has supplanted the best-of-five sets) are the highlights. Many of the others are tiny bug fixes or light character tweaks that are big in number but not quite in impact.
