In a game where each frame of an attack is as important as the last, checking the Mortal Kombat 1 server status and whether the Mortal Kombat 1 servers down is something you’re going to have to worry about when you try to play is important. So, we’re here to help you out and offer you some guidance when it comes to where you need to check online to see the server status of the game itself.

It’s also worth noting that online mode isn’t the only thing in Mortal Kombat 1 tied to having stable servers. If you want to play the new Mortal Kombat 1 Invasion mode, you’ll need to be connected to the MK1 servers. If you want to customize your Mortal Kombat 1 characters and Mortal Kombat 1 Kameo fighters, you’ll need to have a decent connection too. We know that doesn’t make too much sense, but that’s just how it’s done; so, that’s why you need to know about it.

Are the Mortal Kombat 1 servers down?

The Mortal Kombat 1 servers are currently experiencing some connection issues, as per the official social media accounts. At the moment, there’s no set time when this issue will be resolved – however, it shouldn’t take too long.

The reason for these server issues is likely to the sheer amount of players trying to access Mortal Kombat 1 following it’s early access period starting. The full Mortal Kombat 1 release date is almost here, but these issues should be resolved by then.
