Warner Bros. Interactive has released a new update for Mortal Kombat 11 on PC bringing 60 FPS support for cinematics including the special moves. This was previously only possible through a mod that unlocked the frame rate on PC.
Mortal Kombat 11 runs at 60 FPS on PC and consoles but the frame rate is locked to 30 during the cinematics and special movies like fatalities. This can often lead to a jarring experience when the game switches between the two different frame rate in the middle of a fight. It was possible to unlock it on PC through modding the game, but this is not needed anymore.
The latest update for Mortal Kombat 11 has implemented a fix to make the 60 FPS work in all modes where the frame rate was locked to 30. This also includes The Krypt where the player can explore and unlock new in-game items by purchasing tombstones or treasure chests.
Warner Bros. Interactive shared the patch notes for this new update on PC. Here’s what was included in this new Mortal Kombat 11 update on PC.
- 60 FPS mode – In PC Features, we have introduced the option to turn on 60 FPS in Menus and during Cinematics (Intros/Victories, Krushing Blows, Fatal Blows, etc) and in Krypt separately. We have set this default to ON for Menus however you have to switch the option to ON for the Krypt, as is only recommended on high end configurations.
- Missing reflections – We have introduced the option to turn on/off reflections.
- Crash fixes for users who have crash on launch issues. We are working on other similar issues, so we will keep updating the game with fixes for users who report their crashes to us. – issues caused by outdated Radeon drivers should no longer occur – game crashing on launch/during gameplay cause by drivers for unusual controllers, should no longer occur – game not launching, issue cause by a fault library file, should no longer occur
- Players frequent disconnects –adjustment that should resolve the issue of frequent disconnects for some users
- Fix to Frost Whirring Drill graphical glitch when TAA is disabled
- Localization updates
- Minor fixes for mouse and controller inputs
- Various balance changes (correction – there were no balance changes in this update. Apologies!)
Mortal Kombat 11 has also received multiple updates since launched in late April to address the issues with grind in the game. This has resulted in the developers massively nerfing the requirements for some of the unlockables after a recent update.
