Mortal Kombat XL is coming to PC after all

Mortal Kombat XL is coming to PC after all

Earlier this year PC gamers discovered they were not getting the Mortal Kombat XL and Kombat Pack 2. It now looks like Warner has changed their minds.

Aa tweet from NetherRealm’s Ed Boon reads, “Maybe we should Karry eXtra Long People who Care?” highlighting the MKXL part in the sentence accompanied by a circuit board.

This update follows a post from the start of the month which reads, “Over 10,000 of you voted. Looks like you guys really want a PC MKXL and some character love/buffs! We hear ya!”.

The PC community were upset that there was a lack of support for the game on PC and a petition was launched which received over 11K signatures. Players had expected future updates following the initial game release which is why they felt let down and many requested refunds.

Although Injustice 2 has not been announced for PC, it could make an appearance and this could be Warner attempting to bring the PC community back on side ahead of a future announcement.

Peter addressed this issue in an article back in January which explained why Warner abandoning Mortal Kombat XL was another blow to their reputation.

      Good grief, but that Tweet is one of the most convoluted initialisations I’ve ever seen.

      It’s good news, anyway, depending on how it works out. MKX wasn’t exactly the high point for Warner’s recent PC ports, and then being cut out of future DLC and the like was borderline insulting. The question is whether or not this’ll have better netcode and actually be optimised for PC, I suppose.

      (And I’d still quite like to see Injustice 2 hit PC. I enjoyed the first one I lot more than I probably should’ve done.)

      I like MKX and all, but I’m not really up to giving WB another shot after Arkham Knight and the original MKX port. I’ll let other suckers playtest it for me before I jump in.

      • Tim McDonald

        Yeeeeah that’ll probably be me. Unless this is some sort of heavily discounted upgrade, though, I’m not sure I’ll be plumping for this any time soon.

        • Richard N

          Your sacrifice will not be in vain.

      • Samuel Sanchez

        If you actually bought the mkx port I doubt you’d have to buy it again. So more than likely you’d be he sucker to playtest it. Unless of course your entire post was hyperbole and you never bought any PC ports in the first place.

        • Richard N

          Nah I played it on PS4. Was considering getting it for PC until the debacle. Though if it is a free upgrade; that would be a nice gesture towards some goodwill for the people that got burned.

      Just as I thought, after seemingly being embarrassed over Arkham Knight and abandoning the platform, WB are back with a groveling apology. The PC market is too big to ignore.
