September 20, 2023: Get your PC ready! Mortal Kombat 1 is available right now!

Mortal Kombat 1 is on the cusp of kicking down the doors of gamers across the globe as they look to sink their teeth into a healthy dose of gratuitous violence and excessive disembowelments. Before we get to the gory ass-kicking, let's first see that your computer meets the Mortal Kombat 1 PC requirements.

Mortal Kombat 1, despite what the title may suggest, is a follow-on from the most recent success in the franchise, Mortal Kombat 11. While it unfortunately doesn't appear to be coming out for PS4 and Xbox One, it'll hit the new-gen consoles, even for early access if you're eager and have pre-ordered.
