NetherRealm Studios has announced that Mortal Kombat 1 cross-play will be coming in early next year.
“Cross-play is coming in February between PS5, Xbox and PC, so we’re very excited about that,” community manager Tyler Lansdown said during a live stream on Thursday. “Get hyped.”
Since the game’s reveal, cross-play has always been a part of the post-launch plans for Mortal Kombat 1. The only question was when, not if, the feature was going to be added.
With a release window now known, it’s going to give players even more opportunities to play online with people they’ve never had the chance to fight before.
In addition to cross-play, the studio is adding a WiFi filter to Mortal Kombat 1 which will allow players to decline matches based on the connection to their opponent.
Mortal Kombat 1 is available now for PS5, Xbox Series X|S, PC, and Nintendo Switch. If it wasn’t clear via the quote above, cross-play won’t be coming to the Nintendo Switch version of the game.
