How to Check the Mortal Kombat 1 Server Status

You can use any one of the following sites to check the status of your game’s servers, not just with Mortal Kombat 1. Choose whichever you feel more comfortable with, they all give you the same sort of information:

  • Down Detector
    • DownDetector is one of the most popular sites to check for a game or other online service is active or not.
  • IsDown
    • IsDown is another choice and they also offer to show you the ping of the server at that moment.
  • Twitter/X
    • You can always keep checking back with the devs themselves on Twitter for more news and updates. They should be the first ones to tell you when Mortal Kombat servers are up and running!

Of course you can always chat with other players on Mortal Kombat Reddit, or find a Mortal Kombat Discord!
