Mortal Kombat is back, and it’s kind of going back to the beginning.
The very smart, creative way Netherrealms are rebooting the series gives it a chance to wipe the slate clean, while bringing back fan favourites and essentially creating a new starting point, while paying homage to what’s come before.
Mortal Kombat 1 returns from September 14th – if you purchase the Premium Edition – and comes with some cool pre-order incentives, as well as some awesome new skins.
For all pre-orders, you will unlock Shang Tsung as a playable character, regardless of whether you go for the standard or premium editions. And if you pre-order of PS5, you’ll also get access to an Online Beta from August 18th to the 21st.
With the premium edition, however, you get 5 days early access before the game’s official launch on September 19th, as well as 1,250 Dragon Krystals (the in-game currency)
On top of that comes the Kombat Pack, which adds…
- Jean-Claude Van Damme Character Skin for Johnny Cage
- Early Access to Six Playable Characters
- Five New Kameo Characters
And if you get the Premium Edition, you’ll also get the aforementioned Expansion Pass which includes Omni-Man, Homelander, Peacemaker, Quan Chi, Ermac, and Takeda.
Mortal Kombat 1 launches on September 19th, with early access beginning from September 14th on PC, Xbox and PlayStation.
