Pre-load time excitement for Mortal Kombat X fans

By Alan Ng - Apr 13, 2015

We are almost ready for the launch of Mortal Kombat X, with the game going live on Tuesday. The most pressing matter now though is the pre-load time for Mortal Kombat X as we can see that some of you are already starting to download those files early.

On PS4 at least, we can tell you that the Mortal Kombat X preload size is well over 30GB. The game is also split into several different update files as well – including the MKX Day One update which we told you about separately last week.

We are seeing a 33GB install file on our PS4 system, which surprisingly is downloading very quick considering we are just one day before launch and thousands of users will be preloading the same files right now.


While our Mortal Kombat X preload time in US went live just after 1am EST, we’re not 100% sure on whether the preload has rolled out to other regions yet.

We know that some gamers in Australia are yet to see the download available, while we’ve also had a few messages from our UK readers who say that the preload isn’t live for them either.

If you have Mortal Kombat X on pre-order on any platform, let us know your status at the moment with regards to the preload. Are you downloading the files right now or are you still waiting?

Follow us on Facebook, Twitter or Google Plus.

    Started the Pre load in UK. Though, rest mode didn’t work, even with everything turned on. This is the third time automatic downloads have failed to start while in rest mode.

    • scorpions soul

      Yeah started download

    • Nick Cook

      Yeah me too now thank god. Says about 3 hours. I’ll take that!

  • Forest Demon

    Sony blaming neatherrelm. Tweet them and let them know

    • scorpions soul

      Where did you read this?

  • scorpions soul

    Still not up for pre load in uk with 13 hours left. Aaarrggghhh

    • Nick Cook

      I know right! Its bad, everyone in the US is downloading it over night and at this rate I won’t get to play until I’m home from work tomorrow 🙁

      • scorpions soul

        Yeah it’s ridiculous, they took the money days ago now we have no choice but to wait. If I remember correctly I pre loaded bloodborne before I even added the funds to my wallet.

  • Nick Cook

    Still nothing here in the UK on PS4….

  • Ahmed

    I pre-ordered it on steam in Europe, and I am still waiting……

    • RikkanFoxx

      Steam aren’t gonna let us download it until 7pm tomorrow(uk time)! No preload, no midnight release. Why bother to preorder it at all. After download is done it will be 15th for me. Very annoyed!

      • Ahmed

        you are definitely right. I like the game so no harm of preordering it.

  • Tatenda Maxwell Maposa

    That looks like 3.242GB to be and not 33GB. Have the same files downloading on my PS4 as well.
