We’ve learned a lot about Mortal Kombat 1 in the past few days, and we now know what its minimum and recommended PC specs are. As revealed by the game’s Steam page, it seems that the specs required for the game are quite modest, at least compared to other new 2023 games like The Last Of Us Part 1.
As you can see in the below list, the minimum specs for the game include an Intel Core i5-6600 or a AMD Ryzen 3 3100 for the CPU, and it lists the Nvidia GeForce GTX 980 (along with AMD RX 470 and the Intel Arc A750) as the GPU you need. The recommended specs are understandably more demanding, with a Intel Core i5-8400 or AMD Ryzen 5 3600X CPU fitting the bill, and a Nvidia GeForce 1080 Ti or AMD Radeon RX 5700 XT or Intel Arc A770 filling in the GPU side of things. However, it will require 100 GB of hard drive space, which is sadly the norm for most big games these days.
Considering that the GeForce 1080 Ti is now three generations old, these specs are extremely achievable for even gamers with aging rigs. Compared to Diablo 4’s specs, which recommend at least an Intel i7-8700k and a Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 for ultra 4K requirements. Of course, you’ll almost certainly need a stouter rig to play Mortal Kombat 1 in 4K, and we don’t know what its ultra requirements are, but it’s fair to conclude that you can play the game with decent settings even if your PC is a few years old.
