Mortal Kombat developer NetherRealm Studios wants the start of the next installment of the fighting game to be smooth, so it decided to put the infrastructure it serves to a load test. Players who will be able to participate in this will be randomly selected by the company.

NetherRealm Studios, the developer of Mortal Kombat, recently announced that they will be releasing the latest installment of the series on September 19th. We’ve already seen the game’s brutal preview, and the company also announced that those who pre-ordered the game will have access to its beta as early as August.

Since there is a lot of interest in the game, the question is how much the infrastructure will be able to serve the mass of players that will be released on the servers on the day of release. So the development company also announced an online stress test Eurogamer.

According to NetherRealm, users from Europe, North America, Latin America and Brazil will be able to take part in this using PS5 and Xbox Series X / S consoles. This is to assess the capacity of the online infrastructure and potential problems before the game becomes available globally.

Although the company hasn’t said much about exactly what this stress test means, according to the report, it will be the multiplayer mode 1 vs. the multiplayer mode. 1, and users will be able to fight against computer-controlled opponents in classic gameplay.

It is important that stress testing is not the same as beta access. Those wishing to participate in the former must register an account with Warner Bros. Games. Then inside it They must also register on the appropriate page.

The company allows only a limited number of players to participate in the stress test, so they will be chosen at random.
