Mortal Kombat 1 will release later this month and Warner Bros updated the game’s Steam store page, revealing that it’ll be using the Denuvo anti-tamper tech on PC.
This shouldn’t come as a surprise as this is Warner Bros we’re talking about. However, the publisher has misled a number of its PC customers as it hadn’t included Denuvo on the Steam page when it started accepting pre-orders.
Now the good news here is that at some point in the future, Warner Bros will most likely remove Denuvo from Mortal Kombat 1. After all, this is exactly what happened with Mortal Kombat 11.
Mortal Kombat 11 came out on PC in April 2019. Then, in March 2022, Warner Bros removed the controversial anti-tamper tech from it. So yeah, this is something most PC-fighting fans should keep in mind.
Before closing, I’d like to point out that Mortal Kombat 1’s Steam store page now lists “Cross-Platform Multiplayer“. From what we know, Warner Bros and QLOC added this tag recently. Thus, it appears that the PC version will support cross-play.
Stay tuned for more!

Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
