Mortal Kombat: Komplete Edition Hits PC This August

The deadliest warriors in existence have been summoned to a brand new world. Or, put more plainly, Mortal Kombat: Komplete Edition is finally bound for PC. You’ll be kicking it with Scorpion, Katana and the rest of the gang come Aug. 2.

We announced in March that a “game of the year” edition of Mortal Kombat was supposed to be headed to PC. That game has since received a name change, and now Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment is announcing that the “Komplete Edition” is bound for PC later this summer.

Arriving on consoles back in 2011, Mortal Kombat revitalized NetherRealm’s brutal brawler by taking the fighting game back to its roots. The developers traded the 3D arena of recent games to return to a 2D playing field. A more focused, yet deep fighting system allows for some white-knuckle fisticuffs, making this version of Mortal Kombat arguably the best in the series to date.

While NetherRealm was hard at work on the more recent, and yet equally awesome, fighting game, Injustice, the team at High Voltage Software has been adapting Mortal Kombat for the PC audience.

And when they say the game is Komplete, they mean it. The PC version of the game will come packed all of the previous DCL, including fighters Skarlet, Kenshi, Rain and Freddy Krueger (Yes, you read that right), as well as 15 additional skins and three old school fatalities.

Just like in the console version of the game, players on the PC will have access to the game’s story mode, tag team battles, the Challenge Tower, as well as one-on-one multiplayer battles. The King of the Hill mode will also remain intact, allowing players to watch and interact with an online fight as it’s unfolding.

A price point hasn’t been announced yet, but you can look for Mortal Kombat: Komplete Edition on PC in a physical format on Aug. 3 and digital format on Aug. 3.
