Players can now try out Mortal Kombat X in its current iteration this weekend for free on PC as part of a network test.
MKX on Valve's Steam platform has been updated with a link that allows anybody to participate in the "MKXL Enhanced Online Beta." The 23.1gb download allows players to play the whole Mortal Kombat X cast against others using a rollback netcode system similar to that of GGPO. This test was originally featured on the console version of MKX in preparation for Kombat Pack 2/Mortal Kombat XL.
This will mark the first time PC MKX players can use KP2 characters Alien, Leatherface, Triborg and Bo' Rai Cho. The original PC version on Steam, handled by High Voltage Software, was criticized for various bugs and lack of support. The port was met with further disapproval after NetherRealm Studios' Tyler Lansdown announced on Test Your Might that Kombat Pack 2 would only be on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
This beta test was alluded to after Ed Boon on Twitter had a poll with one of the choices being "MKXL with GGPO on PC."
While there is no information in regards to the sale of Kombat Pack 2 characters on PC, you can try them now by going to the game's Steam page. The beta ends on Aug. 29, 2016, at 10 a.m. PST.
