Mortal Kombat 1 is constantly expanding, with NetherRealm Studios regularly revealing more of what’s to come in its recent fighting game. Its latest livestream detailed a few exciting upcoming additions, including a long-awaited crossplay launch date. As the developer initially explained the cross-platform capabilities wouldn’t come until later, we finally know that we can expect to play with friends on other systems early next year.

We love Mortal Kombat 1, as it’s much more than a simple rewind for the iconic fighting game series.

While the Mortal Kombat 1 crossplay launch was previously up in the air, with NetherRealm simply explaining that the team was “hard at work at implementing the feature into the game,” we finally know that it’s on its way and it’ll be here before you can say fatality.
