Mortal Kombat X

It was revealed several days ago that NetherRealm Studios’ Mortal Kombat X won’t require PS Plus and Xbox Live Gold to access its multiplayer. The impression at the time was that no feature would require a subscription to use based on tweets from executive producer Shaun Himmerick.

However, Himmerick has since clarified that this would not be the case. “I just meant no exclusive content for PSN plus. That was original question. Mistype. Console rules all apply.” The past tweets indicating otherwise have since been deleted.

Sorry everyone but just like everything else in this console generation, if you want to play online, you’ll need Xbox Live Gold and PlayStation Plus for the Xbox One and PS4 respectively.

Mortal Kombat X will feature an extensive online multiplayer component when it releases on April 14th with Faction Wars that allow players to choose sides and combat other players on a weekly basis, Challenge Ladders to earn points for one’s faction and much more. It will be available for PS3, PS4, Xbox One, Xbox 360 and PC.

    I rely hope the xbox version doesn’t get hampered by the ps4 version. Easy killa, here me out. Xbox live on the xbox one allows for ALL developers who publish a game on the platform to use FREE dedicated servers for multiplayer. Most games on consoles have used p2p game hosting which is why you always hear about host advantage or lag.

    If they want to use a dedicated server setup on psn they have to buy and manage the servers themselves which is expensive. On the xbox they dont. So hopefully the xbox one version uses proper dedicated servers which will make online matches as smooth and fair as possible. The only reason for them not to do so would be because they are porting the ps4 version directly and dont want to write Xbox specific code but considering how easy it is to switch from p2p to dedictlated servers it would just be outright lazy not to do so.

    Either way I’ll buy the game and love the game but I want it to be as good as possible and I want to fight my friends online
