Mortal Kombat X Might Also Feature Region-Locked Multiplayer

By   /   Mar 16, 2015

While it might not be much of a surprise for long time series fans, Mortal Kombat X will feature region-locked online multiplayer. The information was confirmed by executive producer Shaun Himmerick, in reply to a fan’s question. The tweet was later removed but some fans managed to take screenshot before that happens.

Mortal Kombat X

Mortal Kombat X looks great so far but this region-locking is a major drawback. Here’s what this means for us all and how it affects gameplay. Multiplayer region-locking is a restriction which enables multi-regional online play.

For example, if you own a region 2 copy of Mortal Kombat X, you can only take on players of this region. You won’t be able to test your skills against players from a different region, bummer right?

It’s exactly the same system which was applied to Mortal Kombat 9 and Injustice: Gods Among Us. It’s a really strange move as I don’t recall same kind of restrictions being applied to Tekken or other MK competitors. So why is Netherrealm going down this road?

The developers are yet to release a proper comment on Mortal Kombat X multiplayer region-locking. We’ll let you know if something new is shared regarding the matter. So check back with us later.

Mortal Kombat X is coming out for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One, Xbox 360 and PC on April 14. A mobile version of the game is also in development, along with other major titles, according to Warner Bros. Interactive.
