You can try Mortal Kombat X's new characters right now, for free

TODO alt text

If you thought the recently-released characters for Mortal Kombat X seemed cool, but weren't sure if you wanted to throw down $20/£16 for them, developer NetherRealm wants to help you make up your mind. Fire up your copy of Mortal Kombat X and for the next four days, you can play as Leatherface, Bo Rai Cho, Triborg, and the Alien for free in the single-player Living Towers mode.

All you need to do to access the free DLC characters is make sure your copy is up to date with the latest patch and then head to the Living Towers menu. Here, you'll see that the Premier Tower is set to "Who's Next" mode, meaning you'll cycle through each of the characters and their variations as you progress from fight to fight.

Personally, I'm all for this. It's a cool way to make sure players can make an informed purchase. Kudos, NetherRealm. Or would that be… no wait, "kudos" already starts with a K. Hm.
