Is rollback netcode in Mortal Kombat 1?
Thankfully, Mortal Kombat 1 will support rollback netcode. "Yes, Mortal Kombat 1 will have rollback netcode to support online gameplay," says WB Games in an official Q&A. You'll be able to test this connectivity during the game's beta in August and an upcoming Stress Test before the game's official release.
Rollback netcode is a much-requested feature from fighting game fans. To put it in simple terms, it's a system that predicts incoming attacks, reducing input delay. Most of the time, this is a massive improvement from the traditional delay-based netcode.
- Mortal Kombat 11 also supported rollback netcode.
What other multiplayer features are there?
Mortal Kombat 1 may support cross-play between all of the game's systems, including the Nintendo Switch. At first the Q&A confirmed the feature will be coming after the game's launch. However, a reference to cross-play in this post has been deleted. Whether or not Mortal Kombat 1 will launch with crossplay remains to be seen. It would be cool to play with Nintendo Switch players with a PS5, Xbox Series X/S, or PC system, however.
To access online gameplay in Mortal Kombat 1, you'll need an Xbox Live Gold, PlayStation Plus, or Switch Online membership. You'll have to test the might of your wallet.
