Kombat Pack 2 for PC? VR? Cross-play between PS4 and XB1?

Ed Boon teased '500,000' on twitter

Me thinks they smell blood in the PC water

This was the last thing I would have expected coming into this topic. As one of the many that were affected by the poor game on launch night and thereafter, I'm listening. If he drops the ball with something distasteful, though, I probably won't buy another MK game ever again (yes, I realized they outsourced the PC port, but they soured the ground).

XL for PC would be nice

It's kind of shitty that they are currently treating one of their platforms like it doesn't exist

I hope it's a PC update. They would need to add cross play though, because the PC playerbase for that game is completely dead.

At this point, he and WB should really be adding the word "console" when talking about MK news. Without the word is misleading as fuck.

Tease with the amount of copies PC version sold.

Announce it's prize pool for console version.

So, it'd be like they're trying to see how much they can enrage a user base. Now I kind of want this to happen, and I have the PC version.

Might consider getting back in this if they give PC the love it deserves.

If it is MK XL for PC, wonder what they'll do for the current PC users who got the shit end of the stick with the original PC port?

Better offer a fucking upgrade path. They've already fucked up Arkham Knight, so I have no hope anyways.

I would die laughing if they re-sold it for $60 with the patch.

I would imagine that it would be similar to how it worked with the original game on PS4 and XBone -- everyone gets the patch (so everyone gets the updated netcode and balance changes) and the Kombat Pack 2 can be purchased as a separate DLC pack.

Hopefully they're serious about cleaning up the PC version (the way they handled that was awful), although I can't blame anyone for not getting excited regarding anything WB does on the PC front.

The ideal would be that they announce that the PC version is getting the new stuff and that the PC version is being done in-house now.

Either ESL prize pool, or PC release of MKXL.

When MS announced the crossplay stuff, Boon did comment saying how cool it would be for Xbox and PS4 versions of MKX to have crossplay. That might be too soon though.
