Mortal Kombat X PC specs revealed

Mortal Kombat X is on my list of must-play titles this year, and for good reason. What we’ve seen of the brutally gory fighter so far looks incredible, and just what a next-generation Mortal Kombat game should look like. Environments and characters alike are bursting with gorgeous detail – so what kind of toll will it take on your PC?

As one would expect with a primarily 1v1 fighter, you won’t need a ridiculous mount of power to get things running on PC. The graphics card requirements are extremely low for minimum specifications, and hit around the mid-range market with recommended. Curiously, both sets of specs require a fair amount of CPU power – with an i7 listed as requirement for recommended settings.

MINIMUM:

  • OS: 64-bit: Vista, Win 7, Win 8
  • Processor: Intel Core i5-750, 2.67 GHz | AMD Phenom II X4 965, 3.4 GHz
  • Memory: 3 GB RAM
  • Graphics: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 460 | AMD Radeon HD 5850
  • DirectX: Version 11
  • Network: Broadband Internet connection
  • Hard Drive: 25 GB available space

RECOMMENDED:

  • OS: 64-bit: Win 7, Win 8
  • Processor: Intel Core i7-3770, 3.4 GHz | AMD FX-8350, 4.0 GHz
  • Memory: 8 GB RAM
  • Graphics: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660 | AMD Radeon HD 7950
  • DirectX: Version 11
  • Network: Broadband Internet connection
  • Hard Drive: 40 GB available space

It’s odd to see two different HDD requirements on listings such as these, although the Dying Light featured the same. The larger, 40GB size could account for the games future DLC and not represent the actual size at launch. There’s little else to explain the massive difference, unless a setting for higher resolution textures exists.The memory requirement for minimum specifications is also redundant, since the game will require a 64-bit operating system. That means you’re looking at a minimum of 4GB regardless, so forget about the 3GB listed.

Otherwise, it doesn’t look too bad. Remember that Mortal Kombat (and fighting games in general) are at their best when they’re played at the highest framerate possible. So keep a locked 60FPS in mind when deciding whether your PC can handle this or not.
