Nightwolf is still a few days away but NetherRealm has started prepping the landing for the DLC character with a huge update that adds some goodies and tweaks, and slaps Scorpion in the face with a nerf the community has been requesting for a while now.

You can find the whole patch list here but the most noteworthy points are as follows:

  • Scorpion's Hell Port can now be fended off with an uppercut, making it much easier to counter.
  • Several brutalities have been added to the game for the player to discover.
  • A bevy of new color-blind mode options are in the menu.
  • Buffs to Shao Kahn, Kollector,  Raiden, and Kotal Kahn
  • Various new rewards for completing towers (including Johnny Cage announcer)
  • The Krypt has more detailed "where to get" information on items.
