We have some great news for PC owners now, as it looks like patience has finally reaped some rewards in relation to a PC version of Mortal Kombat. Warner has just announced that the Komplete Edition is heading to PC and will come with all of the DLC that originally released for the console versions of the game.
That means, Mortal Kombat Komplete Edition will be coming with all of the various retro character skins, including classic outfits for Scorpion, Sub Zero and Ermac. Perhaps more importantly, it also comes with the four main post-release DLC characters – those being Kenshi, Scarlet, Rain and the legend himself – Freddy Krueger.
While PC owners will be breathing a collective sigh of relief, the big question now is whether the game will support custom features via the Steam Workshop so that fans of the series can start creating extra content that would make their version the best hands down.
For example, a Mortal Kombat with Steamworks support would enable some developers to add extra character skins to the game that NetherRealm Studios never got round to adding in the console versions – a MK1 skin for Kano etc, the ability to play as Shao Khan, Motaro and so on.
The possibilities could be endless and we just hope that this is one of the factors that developers High Voltare Software, who are handling the PC Komplete Edition, have thought about. Some of the more adventurous modders may even be able to add other features into the core gameplay, such as Brutalities – how awesome would that be?
If you are interested in the PC release of Mortal Kombat, the digital version will be out on July 3rd, while a boxed retail version will be available slightly later on August 2. Let us know what kind of Mortal Kombat 9 mod ideas you would like to see for the PC version, should it become possible.
