Mortal Kombat 1: The Return of Quitality

In the midst of the recent trial by fire, also known as the Mortal Kombat 1 stress test, gamers got the chance to hammer this reborn legend into submission, uncovering some unheralded treats along the way, one being the infamous Quitality. It’s been a journey of whispers and wild conjectures, with many pledging their bets on NetherRealm Studio’s next venture being Mortal Kombat 12. However, Ed Boon and his ingenious team threw a curveball at the fandom by rebooting the franchise with Mortal Kombat 1.

In this alternate universe, Fire God Liu Kang plays cosmic puppeteer, reshaping the world and its denizens, leading to some quite astonishing changes, such as the transformation of traditional adversaries Sub-Zero and Scorpion into siblings. Along with an original narrative, Mortal Kombat 1 brings a handful of fresh mechanics to the table, like Kameo fighters who jump into the fray mid-battle to help players out with throws, counters, combo extensions and even the grisly Fatalities. However, gamers have been unearthing a host of previously undisclosed features making their triumphant return as well.

The Comeback of Quitality: A Mortal Kombat 1 Surprise

The inaugural stress test for Mortal Kombat 1 offered the game’s legion of fans a tantalising first taste of the action, delving into the restricted list of characters and Kameo fighters. They also had the opportunity to play around with the game’s numerous ‘-ality’ systems, including the legendary fatality moves, which put a dramatic full stop to a victorious battle. Yet, gamers also discovered that the Quitality mechanic had quietly crept back into this newest incarnation.

First making an appearance in 2015’s Mortal Kombat X, a Quitality occurs during online MK bouts when one of the players elects to exit stage left before the match concludes. The remaining player is awarded the win, while their opponent’s character spectacularly combusts to bring the match to a premature close. Gaming enthusiasts, like FGC community stalwart Ketchup, have been digging up all the new gruesome animations added to Mortal Kombat 1 as players prematurely bow out before the round’s finale.

Despite the dust barely settling on the first Mortal Kombat 1 stress test, it appears to have been a roaring success for NetherRealm Studios, with fans queuing up in droves. The demand was so unprecedented, it even drew in opportunistic scalpers who listed MK1 stress test access keys online for exorbitant prices. Players will have to have deep pockets too, as the latest installment will include microtransactions. That’s always a dampener, hopefully though it won’t take away from a great fighter the upcoming title will be.
