NetherRealm Studios, the developer of Mortal Kombat X, revealed that it will be releasing updates for the PC version of the video game to make massive improvements, along with fixes for online play.
According to NetherRealm, the updates will also fix certain issues regarding the online performance of Mortal Kombat X. There will also be "huge improvements" coming to the PC Version to make gameplay better for users.
Through a livestream, Ed Boon, the co-creator of the Mortal Kombat franchise, revealed that NetherRealm is continuing to develop the networking code performance for the latest installment of the massively popular fighting game series, claiming that NetherRealm is not at all content with how Mortal Kombat X is performing during online play.
"We are constantly working on the online, [that] back and forth," said Boon. "We've taken steps to improve on it. It's certainly better than where we were at launch, but by no means do we feel like we're at where we want or need to be."
One of the improvements that NetherRealm is planning to implement for the online play of Mortal Kombat X is the option for players to retreat from an online fight if either the user or the opponent does not have a good and stable connection. Gamers will be allowed to set a pre-determined threshold for connection quality, and will be given the option to look for another opponent if they are paired up with a player that has a poor connection. This feature is being planned to be rolled out soon, but with no definite time of release yet.
Boon added that NetherRealm will be releasing an update which will significantly reduce the time that is needed to download the living towers, leaderboards and faction page for the PlayStation 4 version of Mortal Kombat X, with this update due to be rolled out "any day now."
Boon also said that Mortal Kombat X for the PC, which has been suffering from several issues since the video game was launched, will soon be receiving "huge improvements." The PC version which was developed in partnership with High Voltage Software, will be receiving a patch that will bring the quality of the game up to par with that of the versions for gaming consoles.
In the livestream, it was also revealed that NetherRealm will be releasing the mobile version of Mortal Kombat X for Android devices this week, on May 5. The mobile version of the title for iOS devices launched just before the release of Mortal Kombat X for the PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
