Mortal Kombat X Moves To Improve Online Play

NetherRealm Studios has announced a new closed public beta to test out the game's improved online experience, which ostensibly will cut down on lag.

Signups for the beta start January 19, and the improvements are aimed at preserving "the feel of an offline game more accurately while playing online, and maintains a consistent input response."

To be eligible for the beta, players must have accrued at least one hour of online play and can sign up starting tomorrow at

The beta contains only four playable characters (Scorpion, Sub-Zero, Jacqui Briggs, and Johnny Cage), but more will be added later on.
