NetherRealm Studios has just announced that PC users will be able to purchase Mortal Kombat XL in October 4. This new version of the game adds quality of life enhancements such as the introduction of GGPO netcode as well as new fighters and costumes.
Existing Mortal Kombat X owners will be able benefit from all the latest balance updates and the new netcode without purchasing the Kombat Pack 2 DLC. The game has been adapted for PC by renowned porting house QLOC (who appear to be on a roll lately, as the excellent Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen and God Eater 2 ports can confirm)
The PC release of Mortal Kombat XL (and the Kombat Pack 2) was at first ruled out by NetherRealm Studios, but it seems that they decided to change their stance due to fan backlash. The developer ran an open beta test last weekend, letting players see that the new and improved edition was worth the wait.
