In an interview with PCGamer, Mortal Kombat 11’s Lead Designer Paulo Garcia claimed that the PC version will be better optimized than Mortal Kombat X. The PC version of this upcoming fighting game will be handled by QLOC; a team that has successfuly ported numerous consoles games to the PC.
As Garcia told PCGamer:
“The people that did the XL version of Mortal Kombat X, where it was dramatically improved, they’re doing this version also. And because they’ve been working with our code engine for the past three years, they’ve actually become a lot faster.”
Now while this sounds great, Warner Bros has just revealed the beta phase for Mortal Kombat 11 will not be available on our platform. As the official Beta FAQ reveals:
“The beta will only available for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 4 Pro, Xbox One and Xbox One X.”
I have not doubt that QLOC will do a great work as Injustice 2 was stable and run fine on the PC (it ran great on multiple PC configurations) but it is still disappointing that the beta won’t hit the PC.
Mortal Kombat 11 is currently planned for an April 23rd release!
