As many expected after a previous teaser, as well as the end of the last game, NetherRealm Studios and Warner Bros. have announced that they will be releasing Mortal Kombat 1 on September 19th for the Xbox Series X, PlayStation 5, Switch, and PC. Despite this title being seen as a numerical reboot, those familiar with the events of Mortal Kombat 11‘s ending will know that it is in fact a direct continuation of the storyline as it featuers Fire God Liu Kang’s new take on the world but obviously things have once again gone horribly wrong.
In the announcement trailer for Mortal Kombat 1 below we see a number of familiar faces making their return with a few revised appearances though all of this is being presented through cinematics for now, with a heavy focus on violence and gore in the latter half. Those who pre-order the game will obtain access to the game’s beta test that will be held in August as well as obtain Shang Tsung as a playable fighter.
The title will launch with a $69.99 standard edition, $109.99 Premium Edition that will include the game’s Kombat Pack, early access to the title on September 14th, and 1,250 Dragon Krystals, and a special $249.99 Kollector’s Edition that includes everything else as well as a 16.5-inch Liu Kang sculpture designed by COARSE and an inspired Liu Kang in-game character skin, three exclusive art prints, a steel case, and 1,450 additional Dragon Krystals (2,700 total).
