Mortal Kombat XL is now available to buy on PC.
Mortal Kombat XL was originally released in March this year for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. The game – which was originally developed by NetherRealm Studios – has been ported to PC by QLOC.
Mortal Kombat XL is an expanded version of Mortal Kombat X, a game which – despite a few grumbles from the playing community – was generally well received in its console form and picked up the Fighting Game of the Year gong at the D.I.C.E. Awards.
The original PC release was a different story, however, with laggy online multiplayer and a lack of post-release updates causing its Steam score to plummet. The PC version of Mortal Kombat XL aims to change all that.
Mortal Kombat XL combines all of the content from the main game plus all of the downloadable contact packs that were issues post release.
The big draw is the range of famous faces that turn the game into something akin to horror-themed Smash Bros. Playable characters include the Xenomorph from Alien, Leatherface from The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Triborg, Bo’Rai Cho, Predator, Jason Voorhees and Tremor.
Also included are a multitude of skin packs including the Brazil and Kold War packs, to name two.
Current owners of Mortal Kombat X on PC can also download the latest patch for free, allowing access to the enhanced netcode that was available in the recent beta test for the game.
