When will Mortal Kombat 1 be available? We finally got the news we were waiting for, and while many thought Mortal Kombat 12 would be the title of NetherRealm’s upcoming game, MK1 is really a reboot of the Mortal Kombat franchise. But when will you be able to play it, and what changes specifically?
You can find a comprehensive summary of what we know about the game, as well as the most recent videos and gameplay clips, below, as soon as they become available from NetherRealm.While increasing the gore and brutality of the deaths and fights, Mortal Kombat 1 is likely to take the series back to its roots.
Mortal Kombat 1 release date
The PS5, Xbox Series X|S, Steam PC, and Nintendo Switch will all receive Mortal Kombat 1 on Tuesday, September 19, 2023. The game’s release date was revealed in a reveal trailer after numerous rumors that it will happen this month.
WindowsCentral provided one of those reports. Additionally, Warner Bros. Discovery revealed the existence of the upcoming Mortal Kombat game during an earnings call earlier in the year. Although it is disappointing that the game won’t be available on PS4 and Xbox One, the hardware will probably have trouble supporting the game because those platforms will turn 10 this year.
With one of the more expensive editions, you can also get a Jean-Claude Van Damme Johnny Cage skin. Mortal Kombat 1 pre-orders will also provide users the opportunity to test the game before its official release date.
Mortal Kombat 1 story
The plot of Mortal Kombat 1 is a new chapter in the series’ history. Not only is it clear from the fact that the game’s name is not Mortal Kombat 12, but also from the game’s trailer that Liu Kang, the Fire God, is rebooting the Mortal Kombat franchise once more.
Liu Kang, Scorpion, Sub-Zero, Raiden, Kung Lao, Kitana, Mileena, Shang Tsung, Johnny Cage, and other Mortal Kombat 1 characters can be found in this remake. A new era for the franchise will begin as a result.
Mortal Kombat 1 gameplay
The Mortal Kombat 1 game’s gameplay has not yet been disclosed. However, with a CGI reveal video here, we might receive gameplay at the PlayStation Showcase 2023, which is on May 24, 2023, on that day.
However, as soon as we do have that trailer, we will make sure to update this post.
Nevertheless, we are aware that this relaunch will offer a lot of novel Mortal Kombat features. In 2023, any fighting game must contain rollback netcode, which is one of those. Crossplay for Mortal Kombat 1 appears to be coming after launch as well; it was mentioned in the game’s FAQ but inexplicably removed.
The FAQ for the game also states that Kameo Fighters, which are special companion fighters that support players during fights and extend gameplay options for them, will be included in Mortal Kombat 1. They are chosen separately from the main roster and seem to be a help mechanism.
That covers everything you need to know about Mortal Kombat 1’s release date as well as what to anticipate from the game on PC and current-generation consoles. Will it appear on our list of the greatest fighting games ever? If it didn’t, we’d be astonished.
