Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment announced a PC port of the 2011 game Mortal Kombat Komplete Edition will launch as a digital download on July 3. The game will be sold in physical format starting Aug. 2.

The PC version of the game will be the enhanced Komplete Edition, which originally released Feb. 28 for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. Warner Bros. completely redesigned the PC version of the game to run and be compatible with modern computer systems.

Mortal Kombat Komplete Edition features the full game, which first launched in April 2011, plus all of the content previously only attainable through downloadable packs.

[adsense250itp]Bonus content features four new fighters, including Kenshi, Skarlet, Rain and Freddy Kruger from A Nightmare on Elm Street.

In addition, the new content includes 15 classic costumes many of the series’ most beloved characters have worn in previous Mortal Kombat titles.

High Voltage Games has been contracted to lead development on the PC port of the game. The Illionis based company is known for porting games to various gaming platforms besides also developing their own original titles. Notable titles from High Voltage include Baldur’s Gate: Dark Alliance and Call of Duty 2: Big Red One, both of which were ports for the Nintendo Gamecube.

This marks the fifth time that an official game in the Mortal Kombat franchise has been ported to the PC. Beginning in May 1994 with the DOS port of the first Mortal Kombat title, ports of the main entries in the series to home computers have been commonplace. Releases to home computers ceased after the October 1997 release of the PC version of Mortal Kombat 4. Following that port, games in the franchise were released exclusively on home consoles and handheld systems.

The release of the 2011 Mortal Kombat on the PC will end the franchise’s long 15-year absence from home computers.
