Mortal Kombat X on PC getting patched today

Mortal Kombat X on the PC is, without a doubt, a bit on the broken side. Even a monstrously large 15GB patch couldn’t bring it in line with the console versions. Developer High Voltage, notorious for its sub-standard porting duties on games like Zone of the Enders, the PC versions of Injustice and Mortal Kombat 9 and the backwards Saint’s Row IV remaster has done it again.

PC gamers who want to get their visceral, brutal and juggle-heavy fight on have struggled with the game since launch, and have had a significantly worse experience than the rest of us.

According to Mortal Kombat Boss Ed Boon, there’s a new patch coming as early as today that will bring the PC version up to snuff.

“Tomorrow there will be a patch for the PC version,” he said in a Twitch stream, admitting at the same time that PC version kinda sucks. “It literally brings the PC version to parity with the console versions and there’s huge improvements coming to that version. That’s a lot of the feedback we have been getting back; people with PC issues, so we’re really excited to get them the version they deserve”

While it is better late than never, I think you’ll be hard pressed to find anyone splashing down cash on day one to buy another NetherRealms, or High Voltage product on PC.

    Heh, I just bought SR4 the other day & started it last night. I also, to be clear, didn’t spend over an hour messing around with the character creator. In case you were wondering. I didn’t.

      I know right? No one spends an hour working on the jiggly bits either….

          Didn’t notice? The first time I created a character, it was the only thing I could stare at… I feel ashamed though…

      Business as usual for the big guns. Release now, patch later. If it was the Titanic it would have sunk in the harbour.

        Really is business as usual innit? They should treat games like condoms. Can’t really release if it’s broken now can you?

          Apparently they can, because there is no accountability.

            I actually feel sorry for the games that their parents are such flaky bastards.

    It’s so nice they’re excited to give PC gamers a working version of the game a month after they bought it. Brings a tear to my crusty old eyes. They must’ve felt terrible selling it in such a broken state before hand, right? I mean it’s not like they knew, or tested it or anything like that. I feel bad for them, having to experience that.

        No, last year. GTAV beta testers were next gen console players for the PC version

    This is odd since most of my friends that play this on their ridiculously over powered rigs had no issues with it.

    Even the XBOX One version is better than PC.

    Fail. The parity between these different versions is kinda becoming ridiculous in scope. All I hear about is how this version is different from that version. When did PC games become so marginalised?

    Where can we find the changelog? Will issues with multiple controllers be fixed (game crash if more than 1 controller is plugged in)?

    So the 15 gig patch (no 2) got pulled because if you can download another 15 gig you might as well just start over.
