In recent weeks, we've heard plenty of rumours around the next Mortal Kombat game. Today, just as promised, NetherRealm is officially unveiling Mortal Kombat 1, set in a “reborn” MK universe.
The setup is pretty simple, at the end of Mortal Kombat 11, Liu Kang is successful in his fight and essentially creates a new universe, which will be the setting for Mortal Kombat 1. The official announcement trailer is roughly two and a half minutes long, but it is entirely cinematic, so we'll have to wait a bit longer for gameplay.
The trailer arrives with the following quote from NetherRealm: “It's In Our Blood. Discover a reborn Mortal Kombat Universe created by Fire God Liu Kang. Mortal Kombat 1 ushers in a new era of the iconic franchise with a new fighting system, game modes, and Fatalities!”
Mortal Kombat 1 pre-orders will begin tomorrow. Anyone who does pre-order will get beta access in August and you'll unlock Shang Tsung as a playable character,
Mortal Kombat 1 will be releasing on the 19th of September for PC, Xbox Series X/S, PS5 and Nintendo Switch.
