Back in the day when NetherRealm Studios released the Mortal Kombat XL, the game developers were “sure” that the Mortal Kombat X’s expansion pack will only be made available on the console versions of the game.
That is probably due to the fact that the PC port of the game has a lot of in-game issues that hasn’t been ironed out.
But just recently, NetherRealm studios hinted and ultimately confirmed that the Mortal Kombat XL will be coming to the PC after all.
To ensure that the game will have a steady PC launch, the gaming company has opened the “Mortal Kombat XL Enhanced Online Beta” program.
Basically, this is their fancy name for the online open beta program of the game. This is so that any issues that may arise will be fixed prior to the release of the game.
For those people who are interested in playing the beta version of the game, just fire up your Steam client and search for the Mortal Kombat XL. You will then be redirected to the game’s beta program and you just to have to enroll yourself. After that, you can now download the beta patch of the game.
Mortal Kombat XL’s game developers are wise to create a beta program for the game. The cancellation of Mortal Kombat XL’s release in the PC was never fully disclosed but a lot of players think that this was entirely because of the myriad of issues that’s plaguing the PC port of the game.
I also think that the game developers are now focusing on releasing Mortal Kombat XL to the PC because of the push from the community.
You see, a lot of Mortal Kombat X players really want to play the game on the PC since, well, the PC is way better in terms of hardware specs.
Unfortunately, not all PC ports of the game are great and as of this time of writing, only the console versions of the game are playable.
Now, because Mortal Kombat XL will be on the beta program for quite some time, there is still no official release window for the game.
According to the gaming company, they want to iron out every major issue that comes up so that the Mortal Kombat XL PC port’s release will be seamless.
Warner Bros, the ones who are responsible for publishing the game, also acknowledges the game developers’ decision about the beta program.
They know all too well that the original PC port of the game suffered from a lot of issues and it is only fitting that they take their time to really fix and improve the game even further.
This is great news, especially for the people who have been clamoring for a PC release all this time.
Mortal Kombat XL will release some amazing characters to the mix such as the Alien from the Alien series, Leatherface from the Texas Chainsaw Massacre franchise, and much more.
As of this time of writing, there is still no release date for the PC port of the game but if you want to try it out, fire up your Steam client and search for Mortal Kombat XL and download the Beta patch.
Mortal Kombat XL is available on Playstation 4 and Xbox One and will soon be available on the PC as well.
