If you are to keep players invested in a game like Mortal Kombat X it needs to perform to expectations. To improve online play the game is to get a Netcode update, which will also need to be tested.

The site for the Mortal Kombat X Beta is now live and allows you to register if you want to try out the new technology that is being added to the game. Here is the announcement details:

“We at Netherrealm are constantly trying to enhance and enrich the experience of our games, and improving the online experience is among the most requested areas of our player base. With the MKX Enhanced Online Beta, we are exploring new technology and methodology to bring our fans more responsive, seamless online matches. Throughout this multi-week event, we will be listening to our fans as they tell us what is working, and more importantly, what still needs improvements. For those who join the event, we encourage, and are open to feedback following every match.”

Obviously you’ll need to be an existing player, but another rule is that you’ll need to have at least one hour of experience of online playtime on the game. This is to allow you to have a good idea of how the game has been performing in the past and so you’ll be able to see the changes. You can view the rest of the instructions for how to register for the beta on the site itself.

With these updates in progress, and new characters being still added to the game, it looks like Mortal Kombat X is heading into 2016 at a fast pace. It will be interesting to see what other plans are in place for the game, or if a sequel could be in the works in the near future.
