Mortal Kombat 1 Reveals PC System Requirements and Download File Size

Details regarding the storage and system requirements of Mortal Kombat 1 have recently been unveiled, providing users with a clearer understanding of the necessary hardware to run the game. Following a period of anticipation, NetherRealm Studios, the developer, recently announced Mortal Kombat 1 as a reboot of the popular franchise.

The introductory trailer for Mortal Kombat 1, which has been shared below, served as a means to introduce the game, while additional information has been gradually released since then. It has been disclosed that Mortal Kombat 1 will incorporate microtransactions, as confirmed by the official FAQ page, which mentions the inclusion of a currency called Dragon Krystals.

Moreover, purchasers of the higher-priced editions of the game will receive a generous allocation of Dragon Krystals as part of their package. Consequently, fans now have access to more comprehensive details regarding the hardware prerequisites for Mortal Kombat 1, including the necessary storage capacity.

According to a report by DSOGaming, the Steam page for Mortal Kombat 1 provides both the minimum and recommended system requirements, specifying that players will need to have approximately 100GB of available space for game installation. In terms of minimum specifications, the game can be run with an Nvidia GeForce GTX 980, AMD Radeon RX 470, or Intel Arc A750 graphics card.

For satisfactory performance, a minimum of an Intel Core i5-6600 or AMD Ryzen 3 3100 CPU is necessary to play Mortal Kombat 1. The recommended specifications list an Intel Core i5-8400 or AMD Ryzen 5 3600X CPU. Additionally, the recommended system requirements suggest that players should have at least an Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 Ti, AMD Radeon RX 5700 XT, or Intel Arc A770 graphics card.

Surprisingly, both the minimum and recommended configurations only mandate 8GB of RAM, which stands in stark contrast to games like Forspoken, which recommend 24GB or even 32GB. Overall, the system requirements for Mortal Kombat 1 appear to be quite reasonable, and it remains to be seen whether the development team will release further information regarding the specifications needed to run the game on ultra settings.
