Mortal Kombat 11 to get uncapped framerates on PC

By all accounts, the PC version of Mortal Kombat 11 runs fairly well. But there is one bugaboo that is bothering players: in some circumstances, the game locks itself to 30 frames per second, even if you were playing at a higher frame rate before that. Fortunately, a fix is on the way.

In a Reddit post, a Warner Bros. employee confirmed that the team behind Mortal Kombat 11 plans to address this issue in a coming update, stating that developers are "currently working on providing the option to increase the caps" in places where the game slows down. The 30 frames per second cap is apparently a remnant from the console versions of the game, but isn't necessary on more powerful PCs capable of running things like fatalities and the Krypt at higher frame rates. So those with capable graphics cards can look forward to seeing Mortal Kombat 11 in all its uncapped glory — eventually. We don't have a timetable on when the update might come to enable this, so it could right around the corner or weeks/months away.

Still, this news has to please PC players, as many gravitate toward that platform due to the performance it offers. There is nothing worse you can do than limit a hardcore PC gamer in any way, and the quick response from Warner Bros. shows they're well aware of that fact and they're taking the fix seriously.

Speaking of patches, by the way, that news came as part of a patch update that fixed some other PC bugs. Players should no longer experience as much desync when participating in Group Battles, for example. Striking out on a Krypt puzzle will no longer cause you to die two times in a row. And any DLC you've already purchased will reflect as such in Mortal Kombat 11's store, ensuring you're aware of what you've already spent money on and what remains.

Mortal Kombat 11 released on April 23 for PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch. It won a lot of love from critics across all platforms, so if you're in the mood for some overly brutal fighting game action, consider giving it a look.
