Mortal Kombat XL patch takes a crowbar to the DLC characters

A fresh patch went live for MKXL today and it was a bloodbath. As foretold in my prophetic impressions piece at the beginning of the month, the day of reckoning has come for the DLC characters introduced in Kombat Pack 2. While th...

Mortal Kombat XL provides a strong reason to come back to the arena

Don't write a hot take about SFV... Don't write a hot take about SFV... Don't write a hot take about SFV... Mortal Kombat XL should make Street Fighter V ashamed of itself. Dammit.

All the cool stuff Alien can do in Mortal Kombat X

When Alien eventually comes to Mortal Kombat X, it won't necessarily be the exact Alien we've come to know and love. It's a species cross-bred with Baraka, meaning that it's different. It's more upright and bipedal, and it has blades on it...

Free medieval skins for MKX players on March 1

I bet the Venn diagram for folks who dig on MKX and also love gruesome medieval stuff is damn near a solid circle. So plenty of people are probably going to be happy that a free pack of medieval themed skins for Kung Jin, Ferra/Torr, and my...

Cyber Sub-Zero sneaks into MKX as Triborg's fourth variation

Mortal Kombat X on PC won't receive new content, support looks to be discontinued

It seems as if Warner Bros. and NetherRealm have executed a Fatality on the PC version of Mortal Kombat X. Eagle-eyed Internet sleuths have noticed that trailers for the upcoming add-on characters haven't included a designation for PC. As i...
