You really are an amateur gamer if you have never played Mortal Kombat. Since, the younger generations aren’t all as blessed to grow up playing the legendary game, Warner Bros. Games recently unveiled a shiny new addition to the Mortal Kombat family: Mortal Kombat 1! We know what you're thinking, "Wait, there's already a Mortal Kombat 1." Well, this is a reborn Mortal Kombat universe, courtesy of the Fire God himself, Liu Kang. He must have had some divine inspiration for this one.
Since its debut over three decades ago, Mortal Kombat has become an iconic favourite and like all good franchises, the makers, NetherRealm Studios, are back at it again. Cooking up reimagined versions of your favorite characters (much like the Fast and Furious series).
Now, mark your calendars for September 19, 2023, because that's when Mortal Kombat 1 is dropping on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, Nintendo Switch, and PC. The game boasts a Story Mode that'll have you hooked with its immersive cinematic narrative. Who needs Netflix when you can play a movie, right?
But that's not all! They've also introduced Kameo Fighters, a motley crew of partner characters that can lend you a helping hand during matches. You can pre-order this gem starting from today! Choose between the Standard Edition, Premium Edition, or if you're a true collector, the Kollector's Edition.
The Premium Edition comes packed with the Kombat Pack, early access, and in-game currency. But if you want to go all out, the Kollector's Edition includes everything from the Premium Edition and throws in some physical goodies too. Pre-orders even come with bonuses like the enigmatic Shang Tsung as a playable character and a sneak peek at the Mortal Kombat 1 Beta for lucky PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S pre-orderers.
