Mortal Kombat X
Mortal Kombat X was released on 14 April, 2015.Facebook

NetherRealm Studios, the developers behind the popular game Mortal Kombat X, is reportedly setting right something fans were unhappy about. The developer has now proved again that it listens and respects their opinion.

Fans were not happy with the way Reptile looked; and they had demanded for the return to the klassic green skin, which the developer has brought back.

The new patch 1.05 was released for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Players will now be able to play Reptile using the classic costume.

This update is free and brings in improvement in the game's balance and functionality. It also brings various fixes to the bugs in the game.

As indicated by Twitter user Takeda, the patch might also bring the character of Tanya sooner than expected to Mortal Kombat X. So, this could have compatibility patch for her, making it easier for her to be released as DLC character.

The patch is not available for PC as yet.

Below is the patch notes for version 1.05 that was shared on GameFAQs:
