Mortal Kombat X’s specs probably won’t finish your PC

Mortal Kombat X‘s PC requirements have been shared by developer NetherRealm Studios on Steam. It’s the latest entry in the series of 2D fighters that started under publisher Midway’s banner during the 16-bit ’90s. NetherRealm has stewarded the franchise since 2011’s Mortal Kombat under the direction of Ed Boon, who co-created the series.

You will need a 64-bit version of Windows to run the game, but the requirements are otherwise not particularly exorbitant. Check out the grotesque detail of the gore in those finishing moves and you get a pretty clear idea of where all that extra graphical oomph is going.
