Mortal Kombat 11 Will Add Kross Generation Play With Next-Gen Versions

Xbox One and PS4 players will be able to fight against Xbox Series X/S and PS5 players from November 17.


Mortal Kombat 11 is coming to PS5 and Xbox Series X/S along with Kombat Pack 2, featuring Rain, Milenna, and Rambo. Now Netherealm has announced that from November 17, when the next-gen upgrade hits for current system owners, all Xbox and PlayStation players will be able to fight each other regardless of what console (or konsole, if you prefer) they're on.

On this date, they promise, Kross Play becomes "Kross Generation". This means that if you own the game on PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X/S, or Xbox One, you will be able to fight against players on all of these other systems. Kasual matches and "designated online rooms" will allow for total cross-console, cross-generation fights.

This feature will not be available for the PC and Switch versions, unfortunately.

The retail version of Mortal Kombat 11 Ultimate won't be out until January, but the game will be available digitally from November 17. If you own the game on the previous system within the same console family, you can upgrade for free--but you'll still need to buy any DLC you don't have.

Mortal Kombat 11 received a 9/10 in GameSpot's review.
