Mortal Kombat X PC Patch Erases Player Saves, Gets Pulled from Steam


The greatly anticipated patch the Ed Boon has promised for the PC version of Mortal Kombat X, which supposedly takes the game on par with the console versions, arrived yesterday.

Players were hoping that the patch would alleviate many of the problems that plagued the PC version since launch, but unfortunately players found out that the patch required 16GB of extra space and was causing many player save files to be completely erased. High Voltage Software, the studio responsible for the PC port of Mortal Kombat X. after confirming the issues they removed the patch from Steam.

We are temporarily removing the patch until we can pinpoint the cause of save data loss. We are actively working on this and will keep everyone posted as we work towards a fix. We sincerely apologize for this disruption.

Mortal Kombat X launched on April 14th to critical acclaim, but while the PS4 and Xbox One versions worked well the PC version saw many issues.

High Voltage Software has been working extensively in order to alleviate the issues and the patch was meant to do just that, but it appears to have made matters a bit worse for PC Mortal Kombat X players.

Hopefully this is sorted out pretty soon and the game is properly updated. We will bring you any new information on the subject as soon as it becomes available.
