Update: it’s now working, though still downloading in frustrating little bits. You big sillies, WB.
If you bounded down the stairs this morning keen to gruesomely murder men, you may have been disappointed. Oh no, I’m not talking about GTA V’s issue (sshhh pretend you didn’t read the headline or see that picture up there of two magical ninjas fighting: the joke falls apart if you already know I’m talking about Mortal Kombat). Oh no no no, this is Mortal Kombat X [official site], which has also launched with a few wonky bits.
Due to apparent issues with an unconventional downloading technique it’s using on Steam, Mortal Kombat X is not playing nicely, sitting at menus or happily crashing.
