A Mortal Kombat 1 patch was detailed by NetherRealm Studios on 14 September, coinciding with the game's early access launch.

Naturally, don't expect any significant changes, but rather some quality of life and bug fixes as the devs prepare for the full launch, where servers will be put to the test, considering Mortal Kombat 1 is releasing on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X and S, PC, and even Nintendo Switch.

Sadly, no last-gen consoles were announced, meaning no PS4 or Xbox One versions. In any case, check out the full MK1 September patch notes below.
