John Rambo joined the Mortal Kombat 11 roster on Tuesday, and people who own the PS4 and Xbox One versions of the gory fighting game got the ability to upgrade to the PS5 and Xbox Series X versions for free. The next-gen versions are adding 4K dynamic resolution, enhanced visuals, improved loading times and other features, so the game's ludicrous violence will be clearer and run more smoothly.
To upgrade on PS5, you go to the game page on PlayStation Network and choose to upgrade to the new version. That will download the extra data needed for the next-gen features. On Series X, Microsoft's Smart Delivery feature will automatically prompt you to download the optimization patch.
