After promising that it would be implemented in a future update, NetherRealm Studios has finally confirmed that cross-play support is coming to Mortal Kombat 1 at some point in February 2024.
The news comes via the studio’s community manager, Tyler Lansdown, who said in a recent gameplay breakdown video for fighters Quan Chi and Chameleon, “Cross-play is coming in February between PS5, Xbox Series X/S and PC, so we’re very excited about that.”
Lansdown also revealed that players will soon be able to decline or accept online matches based on their potential match’s internet connection quality, which should prove a welcome change for anyone that’s suffered an especially laggy opponent.
We gave Mortal Kombat 1 a massive 9.5/10 when it launched back in September, saying “Mortal Kombat 1 is a joyful reinvention of a series that is continually hitting its stride. A strong and varied roster is bolstered by an ingenious Kameo system that offers up a great degree of player flexibility unlike anything else. While it’s a bit off an odd choice to not have crossplay at launch and the approach to gear is bound to be divisive, Mortal Kombat 1 feels like the most complete Mortal Kombat experience so far. And perhaps even one of the best fighting games I’ve ever played.”
