Mortal Kombat 1 released and Steam Deck Verified

By - | Views: 27,243

Mortal Kombat 1 from NetherRealm Studios, QLOC and Warner Bros. Games has now released and it has been rated Steam Deck Verified by Valve.

Nice to see Valve being able to do some early verification for another big game release. Interestingly, 6 days ago it was only rated as Playable. However Valve re-tested it yesterday and decided to bump it up to Verified with the currently unreleased Proton 8.0-4 that's now in testing. Reports on ProtonDB for desktop Linux are also quite favourable on it! So it's nice to see another release doing well for all types of Linux gamers.

If you've picked it up for desktop or Steam Deck, feel free to comment your experiences with it. Not one I'm personally interested in, fighting games like this just aren't my cuppa. Amplified by the ridiculous pricing. It's £59.99 at a minimum and that doesn't even include all the characters, it's actually £84.99 for the Premium Edition if you want more, or there's various DLC (included in Premium) adding up to £67.95 to buy separately. Two of the DLC are just single characters, each at £6.49 — it feels overly greedy.

So far it has gained a Mostly Positive rating from over two thousand user reviews on Steam.

Available to buy from Fanatical, Humble Store and Steam.

And the question that everyone asks. Why with a long standing series has to have the name 1? They had an overflow on the version counter?

I guess they did focus group testing and found out people couldn't count much beyond 10 and so here we are.

At the end of MK11 the universe was pretty much unmade and Liu Kang was left to recreate it. I'm pretty sure this is what he is doing to restart the timeline.

So he's redone the universe in such a way that Mortal Kombat is still a thing? The lengths some people will go to to keep a job...

Looks good. But I agree the pricing is way too steep.

This is great news for MK players. First of all, most have a Steam Deck already anyway. Second, there is a Switch version but the graphics of the Switch ports are laughable compared to newer gen consoles.

At least Warner Brothers tends to have big discounts on their games eventually. I picked up MK11 fairly cheap recently.

I give them that: they very accurately recreated the cringe that was the original Mortal Combat even when it was first released.

Hold on... MK has a story?
It was all the rage back when I was in high school, didn't even know it was a thing anymore
