Huge Mortal Kombat XL PC Patch Improves Netcode, Balance Tweaks, Widescreen Support & More
Warner Bros. has dropped a huge Mortal Kombat XL PC patch which brings the PC version up to par with its console counterparts. Furthermore, the update includes an improved netcode, balance tweaks, technical improvements and much more.
Many PC gamers felt betrayed when Warner seemed to have dropped support of MKXL on PC. While the console versions of the game were steadily improved, and updated with new content, the PC version was left behind.
Through one gigantic PC patch, Warner is now trying to restore some of the Mortal Kombat love on PC. You can check out the official patch notes on Steam and on the official Warner MKXL page. The Mortal Kombat XL PC patch weighs in at 28GB.
