Mortal Kombat is a one-on-one fighting game where players engage in battles against their opponents.
Mortal Kombat 1 has reintroduced Brutalities, which add a delightful layer of fun to the gameplay.
Unlike the traditional isolated command inputs for fatalities, these finishing moves seamlessly integrate with the overall gameplay experience.
While there might not be many known Brutalities available to players at the moment, the likelihood of hidden or secret options is quite high, which is not unusual in this gore-filled fighting game.
Mortal Kombat Servers Down Or Not Working
As of September 30 (IST), Mortal Kombat 1 players are experiencing difficulties connecting online due to server issues.
Netherrealm has announced a delay in the planned patch release for today. This decision is a result of unexpected server problems that have arisen.
“Regrettably, due to the unforeseen server issues encountered today, we must postpone the deployment of today’s scheduled patch until early next week.
Our priority is to ensure server stability before the weekend. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.”
The official Mortal Kombat 1 X Twitter account has confirmed that the servers are undergoing maintenance to address these unforeseen issues.
Unfortunately, due to the unexpected server issues we encountered today, we need to push today’s planned patch deployment until early next week. We want to focus on server stability before we enter the weekend. Apologies for any inconvenience this may cause.
