Mortal Kombat 1 Will Require 100GB Of Storage For PC

With the recent announcement of a Mortal Kombat 1 release, the exciting news has come with a hitch when we look at the storage requirements needed to run the game. 

This week saw the rumors come to a head when Mortal Kombat 1 was announced. The series reboot that will be continuing the story from Mortal Kombat 11 is set to arrive on Sept. 19. We will join Fire God Liu Kang and evil sorcerer Shang Tsung as we stop the latter from capturing souls. 

With an exciting story featuring new fighting mechanics and game modes, all that remains is to see if your setups can run it optimally.

As spotted by PC Gamer, the Mortal Kombat 1 Steam page has gone live and features all of the storage requirements needed by PC users. 

The good news is that NetherRealm Studios will not require overly powerful hardware requirements. Mortal Kombat 1 will be able to run on older processors which is good news for all you GTX 1080 Ti owners. The bad news, however, is that it will require a whopping 100GB of storage. 

Furthermore, this means you will need this much available storage without taking into account any of the game’s Kombat Packs (packs you can purchase to unlock more characters). With multiple Kombat Packs and DLCs arriving alongside the previous installments, it is safe to assume it will be the same story here. 

For console players, we are yet to receive confirmation on how much storage you will need to clear up. However, it is estimated that they will be smaller than their PC counterparts. Although the units that could get close are the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X which will offer performance and upgraded graphic modes.
