Mortal Kombat 1 is out now on PC for premium edition owners, and while it runs quite well on a variety of PCs, there are some technical limitations similar to Mortal Kombat 11. The main problem is the stuttering, and hitching that happens during cutscenes, fataltieis, and x-rays. This can really kill the immersion, and if you’re on an NVIDIA GPU, here is how you can reduce, and potentially fix Mortal Kombat 1 stuttering.
