Mortal Kombat 1 PC System Requirements Have Been Officially Unveiled

Save yourself over a 100 GB of storage for next-gen fatalities.

Story Highlights

  • NetherRealm Studios has revealed the PC system specs for Mortal Kombat 1 on Twitter. The title seemingly requires 100 GB of storage space and 8 GB of RAM. It only supports Windows 10 and above.
  • The minimum specs need Intel Core i5-6600, AMD Ryzen 3 3100, or RYZEN™ 5 2600 CPU. Additionally, an NVIDIA Geforce GTX 980, AMD Radeon RX 470, or Intel Arc A750 GPU is required.
  • The max requirements list the Intel Core i5-8400k or AMD Ryzen 5 3600X as the needed CPU. The GPU for the needed best results is Nvidia Geforce GTX 1080 Ti, AMD Radeon RX 5700 XT, or Intel Arc A770.
  • Mortal Kombat 1 is set to arrive on September 19 for typical users, but the premium edition owners can start playing later today. It comes out for Nintendo Switch, PS5, Xbox Series S, Xbox Series X, and PC.

Many eyes are currently lingering on Mortal Kombat 1 because of the massive changes and additions it is bringing to the table. But some gamers have been curious whether their PCs can run the beefy visuals and esthetical battles in the first place. The devs have answered the queries on X (formerly known as Twitter) by finally revealing the PC system specifications required to relish the entry’s alluring lore and gameplay. 

The system specs for Mortal Kombat 1 have been divided into minimum and maximum sections. The short spec sheet provides the bare lowest yet highly vital info and does not clarify much on many facets.

Elaborating on the specs, the minimum requirements will require the vitality of Intel Core i5-6600, AMD Ryzen 3 3100, or RYZEN™ 5 2600 CPU. Additionally, the GPU will need the extensive VRAM of NVIDIA Geforce GTX 980, AMD Radeon RX 470, or Intel Arc A750.

The maximum requirements will secure the best incarnation of Mortal Kombat 1 on our PCs, with the finest visuals and smoothness that can be offered. However, the CPU requires an expensive Intel Core i5-8400k or AMD Ryzen 5 3600X. The Nvidia Geforce GTX 1080 Ti, AMD Radeon RX 5700 XT, or Intel Arc A770 are required to render all the visual gory eye-candy Mortal Kombat 1 can deliver.

To get the parallels between both sections out of the way, Windows 10 is the least required OS for the game. Moreover, be ready to expend a huge 100 GB for the title to ensure a smooth experience —the requirement is quite high for a fighting game and draws criticisms from the fans.

Additionally, the devs have stated the need for 8 GB of RAM to achieve the next-gen Mortal Kombat gameplay. The RAM usage is quite respectable since 16 GB has become the norm for minimum requirements in the last year or two. Mortal Kombat 1 also only seems to support DirectX version 12 and does not mention the DirectX 11 version anywhere in the PC system specification sheet.

Mortal Kombat 1 has been one of the most affected games by the wave of leaks since it was officially unveiled by NetherRealm Studios. For instance, the entire roster of the entry has seemingly surfaced even before release. Moreover, the complete story mode and three hours of gameplay have been floating around the web for quite some time now. For those looking more towards potential achievements, the trophy list is already out as well.

It is worth noting that the anticipated fans eager to jump right into the game can already pre-load it on Steam. It is an ample opportunity to perhaps dust off and upgrade our PCs before the title comes out on September 19 for standard players. Premium edition owners can seemingly play Mortal Kombat 1 from today. It is coming out for Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series S, Xbox Series X, and PC.
