All the Mortal Kombat 1 Preorder Details You Need to Know
A new era has begun.
Mortal Kombat 1 is about to press restart on a 30-year-old series with a facelift worthy of a AAA game in 2023. In the reboot, Fire God Liu Kang, the divine version of the franchise’s central characters, resets the world in hopes of a peaceful outcome that wasn’t possible in past games. It isn’t what we expected out of a Mortal Kombat 12 (like a continuation of Mortal Kombat 11), but a rebooted version of the series altogether. However, you can still count on it to have the bloody action that Mortal Kombat is known for. And if you’re looking to score on some preorder bonuses, then here’s a closer look at all of your options. Here’s everything you need to know about pre-ordering Mortal Kombat 1.
When Is Mortal Kombat 1 Available to Pre-Order?
Mortal Kombat 1 will be released for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, Nintendo Switch, and PC (on Steam and Epic Games Store) on September 19, 2023. There hasn’t been a PlayStation 4 or Xbox One port announced, so it looks like the first game in the series to be a next-gen console exclusive.
Mortal Kombat 1 pre-orders go live starting on May 19.
