Just as we’d suspected, Mortal Kombat XL is indeed coming to PC after snubbing it for a console only release earlier this year. And the best bit? Mortal Kombat XL is available to down for free via the ‘Enhanced Online PC Beta’.

Mortal Kombat XL contains the base MKX game which launched last year, along with every piece of downloadable content released so far and the bonus Kombat Pack 2.

The MKXL PC Beta is live right now and runs through until August 29th at 17:00 UTC, so you’ve got three full days to see what all the fuss is about. You don’t need a copy of the original Mortal Kombat X either, just head to the MKX Steam store page and there’s a notification to allow you to download the beta near the top.

From the sounds of things NetherRealm is doing everything in its power to prevent another mess like Mortal Kombat X’s PC launch. Performance was atrocious, pre-loading was screwed, and numerous updates to fix these issues totally wiped players’ progress. A decent beta period for any PC game with significant online components seems like a must, so fingers crossed we don’t get a repeat of MKX’s ill-fated launch.

To download the Mortal Kombat XL beta head over to Mortal Kombat X’s Steam page. Who’s planning on giving the beta a go? Glad to see NetherRealm back in PC development?

Why has there been no coverage regarding Tekken 7 coming to PC? There's even 4K PC gameplay.


Also, finally, we get MKXL ^^ I'm happy enough.

Played it a bit yesterday after yiannis2000 posted about how to grab it even though it was at the time hidden on Steam. good find man! The beta I played played extremely well, 60fps on high settings. Would have been nice to have a little single player practice to work out the buttons before being tossed into a match.
