Co-creator of the series Ed Boon asked fans regarding what they would want next and a majority wanted Mortal Kombat XL with GGPO (good game peace out) for the PC. GGPO is middleware designed to help create a near-lagless online experience for various emulated arcade games and fighting games. It is basically a netcode overhaul designed to create a seamless multiplayer experience.

Kombat Pack number one brought Hollywood icons like Jason Vourhees, Tremor and Predator to the gamer’s screens and was well-received. Kombat Pack 2 will introduce the likes of Leatherface, Alien Xenomorph and more.

You can head over to the Mortal Kombat X steam page right now and sign up for the beta while it’s still running. For more news regarding Mortal Kombat stay tuned to MobiPicker.
