There’s something big going down for Mortal Kombat X owners very soon, with NetherRealm revealing that they are going to be pushing forward with a Mortal Kombat X online update which will improve matchmaking, lag and other factors that have been causing you stress.
Before the release though, NetherRealm intends to test the new system which is why they are going to be opening the Mortal Kombat X ‘Enhanced Online beta’.
The MKX Enhanced Online beta sign up will start on Tuesday January 19 and you will be able to join here. The new system will move Mortal Kombat Online play to a ‘GGPO’ model, with the developer aiming to give online play a similar feeling to offline with less lag and a significant improvement to the input time for both opponents during play.
Scorpion, Sub-Zero, Jacqui Briggs and Johnny Cage will kick off the beta, with more players to be added gradually. As always, NetherRealm has warned that not everyone will be able to participate, but they’ll be letting more players in once the beta is underway.
Make sure you bookmark the link above and follow the instructions on how to join the MKX Enhanced Online beta to have a chance of taking part.
More importantly, if you are looking for a MKX Enhanced Online beta code NetherRealm has teased that they will be handing some out on their Twitter page here – so keep your eyes peeled!
