Mortal Kombat XL to be Released on PC!
In what should come as no surprise now, NetherRealm Studios is officially re-releasing Mortal Kombat X on PC.
Controversy arose earlier this year when it was announced that a new version of Mortal Kombat X, titled Mortal Kombat XL, was being released for Playstation 4 and XBOX One. Noticeably absent from the announcement was the PC platform. Neither NetherRealm Studios nor Warner Bros. Entertainment ever released an official comment on the PC version not being supported. PC fans complained and even started petitions asking for refunds and/or a renewed commitment to the PC version. About a month ago, Ed Boon started a poll on Twitter asking fans what MKX news they wanted most. With nearly half the vote, MKXL for PC won!
Over 10,000 of you voted. Looks like you guys really want a PC MKXL and some character love/buffs! We hear ya! pic.twitter.com/1oHB4e3yHL

Since that time, Ed has continued to tease fans with hints towards a revival of the PC version.

Today, it was discovered that an MKXL Online Enhanced Beta is now available to download on Steam! The beta ends on Monday, August 29th, so it’s possible the new PC version will be available shortly after that.
