Mortal Kombat 1 (MK1) 30FPS Lock

Mortal Kombat 1 (MK1) 30FPS Lock – Explained!

In an innovative and technologically revolutionary era of 2023, you can’t expect games to have 30FPS. On one side there are AI bots answering better than humans, and then there are game devs who are making games that lock on 30 FPS. If a game dev studio was new and had 2D, we did pass on that, but a AAA title like MK1… doesn’t sound satisfying. Here in this guide, we are going to go into the details of Mortal Kombat 1 (MK1) 30FPS Lock. What’s the issue and why is it so?

About MK1 – AKA Mortal Kombat 1

After the release of Mortal Kombat 11 (MK11), the gurus at NetherRealm Studios, and Warner Bros (WB), went ahead and renamed their next game in the franchise Mortal Kombat 1 (MK1). At this point, everyone either started from the beginning or went ahead and missed a digit. Why not NetherRealm?

Following the previous franchise base and style, Mortal Kombat 1, is referred to as a fresh start, but with the same set of rules. That same brutal fatality mechanism, on top of those saught-after characters, but with ever-flourishing graphics, and story-line.

Everything is perfect here in the franchise. The game doesn’t force you to have various microtransactions to unlock your favorite fighter, nor get those crisp cosmetics. You’re bound to love this one too here.

All in all, it’s a treat for players who are looking for the same Mortal Kombat Universe, but with a 2023 touch.

So, the game doesn’t get stuck on 30FPS, at least while you are fighting or when you are inside the game. The 30FPS Lock is for cutscenes, intros, X-rays, and even Fatilites. Yes, you heard that loud and clear.

On the other hand, there is no way you can fix that. Try unlimiting the FPS, changing the game from HDD to SSD, and everything you possibly can. Even take the resolution down and play on Low Graphics. You won’t change the settings on 30 FPS, unlocking them.

There hasn’t been a response from devs, but MK1 Publishers and Devs are quite better at solving things, and providing what the public wants. So, in case the community goes berserk after it, the game devs might remove the 30 FPS Lock in Mortal Kombat 1 (MK1).
