Mortal Kombat 2011 is Meant For Hardcore Players

Posted By | On 08th, Jul. 2010

According to the series co-creator, Ed Boon, Mortal Kombat 2011 will “focus hard on the hardcore player,”

“Oddly enough, this [new Mortal Kombat] is the first one in a while that we’ve really made a conscious effort that we are going to focus hard on the hardcore player, at the same time, we want to stay accessible. But the simple numbers of it is that there are just far, far more of the casual player than the hardcore player.” said Ed in an interview with Gamasutra.

“The hardcore player is the most vocal. If you just went online and just kind of look at forums and all that stuff, you’d think that everyone was a hardcore player,” he continued.

“But the reality is that those are the ones who care to the point of getting online [to express their opinions], and they’re passionate and they’re very opinionated. They’re very important certainly from the standpoint of they’re the ones that communicate the most, but the reality is that there are more casual players out there.”

Even though the new installment focuses on the hardcore players, he said that there is still room for the casuals.

“This game, we are really going after that hardcore player,”

“We have some features in the game that are really layered into the game. I think the casual people will still have a good time, but they’re not going to dig as deep in terms of fighting mechanic, features and strategy.”

Mortal Kombat 2011 will be released sometimes in 2011.
