Mortal Kombat 11 Server Status - Offline Progress and Rewards Explained

This is our guide to the current status of the Mortal Kombat 11 servers, including outages, downtimes, maintenance periods, and more.

Since Mortal Kombat 11 can be played online, with people on opposite sides of the globe throwing down against one another, the servers for the game need to be working in order for online matches to be able to take place. If they aren't operational, then you're restricted to single-player content only. In our Mortal Kombat 11 servers guide, we'll be providing you with the latest information surrounding the status of the servers for NetherRealm's new fighting game, so you know when online play won't be possible.

Mortal Kombat 11 Server Status

At the time of writing, the Mortal Kombat 11 servers are down for maintenance. As you can see in the announcement below, the servers for the game will be back online right around 11:30 a.m. CT. They might even be back online by the time you're reading this!

Mortal Kombat 11 Offline Explained

But say that servers for Mortal Kombat 11 weren't active, and you were forced to play the game offline. What modes and parts of the game could you still play? Well for a start, you obviously can't play against other players while in offline mode, and you also can't run AI character battles, which see you throwing down against AI fighter teams that other players have assembled.

Unfortunately, you also won't be accruing XP or currency towards your online profile, while you're playing Mortal Kombat 11 in offline mode. If the Mortal Kombat 11 servers are offline, your profile is temporarily reset to level zero, and you won't have access to any Koins, Souls Fragments, Hearts, or Time Crystals you will have previously earned while playing the game online.

On top of all of this, Towers of Time and the Krypt modes of Mortal Kombat 11 are unavailable while the game is in offline mode. This is because the former mode, Towers of Time, needs to ping to servers in order to reward you with gear and currency items whenever you make any progress, so it isn't possible for the game to reward you with said items while the Mortal Kombat 11 servers themselves are down.

Mortal Kombat 11 has a vast array of character customization options, but unfortunately any character customization that you do while offline is reset when you reconnect to the servers. If you swap any movesets of gear items out while playing the game offline, you'll just need to remember what you had equipped for when Mortal Kombat 11 comes back online, and your changes reset.

But if you're a fan of the story mode in Mortal Kombat 11, then we've got some good news for you. If the Mortal Kombat 11 servers do happen to be down, then you can power through the story mode while the game is offline without any trouble. On top of this, your rewards for progress in the story mode will be rewarded when servers for the game come back online, and the game has had a chance to ping the Mortal Kombat 11 servers for your rewards, similar to how rewards are doled out for the Towers of Time mode.
