Mortal Kombat 1 Pre-Order Beta Impressions

Mortal Kombat 1 Download Size Revealed – No Crossplay at Launch

The download size for Mortal Kombat 1 has been revealed and it’s surprisingly massive, at least on PS5. The upcoming fighting game will also not feature crossplay support at launch but developer NetherRealm Studios has confirmed that it’s currently working on an update for it that will be added at a later stage.

According to reliable Twitter account PlayStation Game Size, Mortal Kombat 1 will require an eye-watering 114.414 GB to install on your PS5’s SSD. For a fighting game, this is unexpectedly large but most AAA games released today tend to easily breach 100 GB. It’s safe to assume that it will require a similar amount of space on Xbox Series X/S and PC, though it’s unclear how much will be required for Nintendo Switch.

Those expecting crossplay for Mortal Kombat 1 might be disappointed to find out that it won’t be included in the game at launch. Speaking on the matter, NetherRealm Studios stated:

“Launch is just around the corner and we can’t wait for everyone to sink their teeth into MK1. Regarding Kross-Play, it will not be available at launch, but know we are hard at work at implementing the feature into the game and it will be koming post launch.”

In related news, the PSN recently dropped the full PS5 trophy list for Mortal Kombat 1. NetherRealm also revealed that actress Megan Fox will be voicing the vampire Nitara, a character who has been absent from the series for over a decade. Last month, we got a chance to go hands-on with the anticipated fighter thanks to the pre-order beta and walked away mostly impressed by its back-to-basics approach.
