September 20, 2023: We've had a look at the server status and, thankfully, it's all smooth sailing so far! We'll let you know if anything changes.

It's not unheard of for a game to experience a few hiccups shortly after launch, hence why the server status of major titles is a hotly discussed topic. This is no different for NetherRealm's Mortal Kombat 1 server status, but fear not, we'll let you know if their servers have taken a bit of a beating.

Picking up from where the game left off in Mortal Kombat 11 (yes, you read that right) the realms have experienced an unprecedented period of peace. Until, of course, someone comes to mess it up. While a predictable scenario, NetherRealm has found multiple ways to keep us fight fans on our toes.

On the lookout for some Mortal Kombat 1 kontent? Look no further, we'll let you know how many chapters the game has and roughly how long it'll take you to complete the story. Once you're through with that, why not wrap your hand around the different game modes?
