Netherrealm has confirmed that the crossplay will be added to Mortal Kombat 1 in its upcoming patch next week. The studio will share more details about the feature early next as well.

Dubbed “Krossplay,” players will be able to link up with each other on other platforms, including PS5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC for both Steam and Epic Games Store. Unfortunately, it seems like the Nintendo Switch won’t be getting the crossplay feature in the next update.

Netherrealm has been consistently pushing out updates for Mortal Kombat 1 since its launch back in September 2023 and confirmed that Krossplay would be coming in early 2024. One of its most notable features already added is Wi-fi filter support. This allows players to decline matches based on the opponent’s internet connection. For example, someone who uses a wired connection can opt out against playing someone who uses a wireless connection.

Mortal Kombat 1’s latest DLC character, Peacemaker, will arrive on February 28 for those who purchased the Kombat Pack 1 and its early access. Everyone else will be able to purchase Peacemaker in about a week shortly after. A new gameplay trailer for Peacemaker was recently released, showing off his jetpack-powered fatality and a Janet Cage Kameo.

In IGN’s Mortal Kombat 1 review, we said, “The bone-crunching gameplay of Mortal Kombat 1 is some of the best the series has ever seen, thanks to the game-changing Kameo system. Netherrealm delivers a fantastic single-player story mode as well. However, the new Invasions mode is a grind and the online options feel dated.”
