It’s official, Mortal Kombat 11 is scheduled to launch on April 23 for PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC. We don’t know much about it yet aside from the game’s retail description and the above trailer featuring Scorpion fighting Raiden. NetherRealm Studios is planning to pull back the curtain further in a reveal event on January 17.
We do know it will have a roster filled with new and returning fighters, and it’s based on a new graphics engine «showcasing every skull-shattering, eye-popping moment.» Also touted are Custom Character Variations, which will give players «unprecedented control to customize the fighters and make them your own.»
Whether you’re a longtime fan of the series or you simply want to give this one a try, you might be wondering what you get for pre-ordering. We have all that information below, along with where it’s available now, what comes in each edition, and how much it costs.
If you pre-order any version of Mortal Kombat 11, you’ll receive Shao Kahn as a playable character. Pre-order the game on PS4 or Xbox One, and you’ll get access to a beta that’s scheduled for March on those platforms.
