Mortal Kombat X PC Version Huge Patch Arrives; Skins, Environment, DLC
Mortal Kombat X will finally have a new patch for the PC version. The new update will include new skins, environment and DLC with new characters.
Mortal Kombat X PC Users Abandoned
Early this year, Mortal Kombat PC users were outraged when game publisher Warner Bros and developer NetherRealm announced that it will no longer issue updates or DLC for the PC. Instead, new contents and patches will only be given to its Xbox One and PS4 player base.
Predictably, most PC users also quit playing Mortal Kombat X as a multiplayer game. Interestingly, High Voltage Software was given the task of developing the PC version for Mortal Kombat X.
WB, NetherRealm Courting PC Users Again
Both game publisher and developer may have realized that they have committed a mistake in shutting out the PC players from Mortal Kombat X. They decide to make it up by announcing the release of a new patch including the new Mortal Kombat XL. As of press time, the update has been implemented after intensive beta testing. Hopefully, the new PC version patch will bring it up to speed with its console counterparts.
Mortal Kombat X PC Version Patch
The PC update is a huge 23 GB package. This is understandable since PC users missed out on a lot of stuffs including game balance and fixes and multiplayer improvements. There will also be medieval skins and The Pit environment thrown in for free.
However, PC players will have to pay for the Kombat X Pack 2 DLC if they want to play the new characters in the game. Meanwhile, a number of PC players noticed that there are still problems with Mortal Kombat X despite the latest patch.
Hopefully, Warner Bros and NetherRealm will not abandon its Mortal Kombat X PC players again. They definitely deserved a better game.
