Generally, the player base of Mortal Kombat X and Mortal Kombat XL is the same however; the major difference between the two is the Downloadable content (DLC).

Meet Mortal Kombat X and Mortal Kombat XL

MORTAL KOMBAT X: This version of Mortal Kombat has commendable overall gameplay. The graphics, game control, story, and characters are all commendable and they all contributed to it earning the fastest and best-selling game in 2015. The game has a very desirable DLC. It brings back the idea of standard combat and a story mode that will greatly interest the player. Oddly though, considering how accessibility is one of the game’s main draws, the tutorials are rather basic and in particular, there’s very little explanation for the different disciplines. The game has two main DLC packs. The DLC packs are an odd mix of more obscure returning characters and random movie characters. There are also a lot of skin packs and alternative costumes.

MORTAL KOMBAT XL: This is an upgraded version of Mortal Kombat X with additional characters available at a separate price.

This version of Mortal Kombat comes with a complete cinematic story mode, a selection of random characters from movies as well as all the previously released characters and new characters, various stages to unlock, various alternative game modes, and unlockable costumes. The core of this game version pack is the addition of four new fighters.

The net code improvements as well the various extra introduction marks a difference between the Mortal Kombat X and its upgraded version, Mortal Kombat XL. The PC version of the MK X was met with mixed reception from players, with reviewers citing numerous technical issues such as slow net code and frequent crashes as problems that severely hinder the game experience. Mortal Kombat X has always suffered from a below-standard online experience. Mortal Kombat XL, on the other hand, offers the ultimate Mortal Kombat X experience which includes the main game and all content featured in the Kombat Pack 2, new characters, new Apocalypse Skin Pack and some previously released content.
