Mortal Kombat 11 will be available on April 23. If you own a PS4 Pro and Xbox One X, we have explained in detail the difference between both platforms so you can determine which one is the better one for your preference.
Mortal Kombat 11 runs on a custom build on Unreal Engine 3. It has been modified by NetherRealm Studios since the days of Mortal Kombat 10. We have seen incremental upgrades to the engine with every new game like Injustice 2 and then Mortal Kombat XI.
The frame rate of Mortal Kombat 11 is the least affected by the choice of your platform. It will remain 60 FPS whether you play the game on the PS4 Pro, regular PS4, Xbox One X, or the regular Xbox One model. As a result, the major difference boils down to the quality of the visuals and resolution. Ideally, even the Nintendo Switch version has managed to run at 60 FPS, which speaks for itself how the developers have prioritized the frame rate no matter the platform.
If you want to determine the platform to pick for the game, the frame rate shouldn’t be a factor here. This brings us to the resolution and visuals.
The resolution of Mortal Kombat 11 on both the PS4 Pro and Xbox One X is highly dynamic. There is no way to determine what it is rendering at a point since it all depends on the intensity of the visual effects presented on the screen. That said, it is a dynamic 4K resolution that runs at a higher pixel count on the Xbox One X and a lower average on the PS4 Pro. Unless you are an expert at pixel counting, you won’t be able to spot the difference here.
The regular PS4 and Xbox One also employ dynamic 1080p resolution but Xbox One drops it more here. Nintendo Switch version is sadly compromised in many ways. It is smaller in size, has downgraded visuals, and the physical version is practically useless due to a mandatory downloaded that is needed to play the game.
As the launch trailer teases, there is an emphasis on a full story mode in Mortal Kombat XI, which is out on April 23, 2019, for PS4, Xbox One, PC, and Nintendo Switch.
