Xbox’s Game Pass subscription service offers hundreds of games, both old and new. Microsoft isn’t afraid to splash the cash either in order to obtain major 3rd party titles. It seems this may be the case with the latest entry in the Mortal Kombat franchise, as MK11 has been teased to be coming to the service.
In a post on Instagram, the official Xbox Game Pass account published a video showcasing iconic Mortal Kombat character Scorpion (in his MK11 iteration) using his chain attack to take an Xbox controller from the hands of a player.
Being from the Xbox Game Pass account, it is safe to assume that this means that Mortal Kombat 11 will be coming to Game Pass in the near future. This lines up nicely with the upcoming 20th anniversary event being hosted by Xbox, which is set to go live later today at 6pm GMT.
Of course, Xbox typically announces its Game Pass titles in batches, meaning that you can expect more Game Pass games to be revealed later today. What we don’t not yet know however is whether the version coming to Game Pass is its original release, or the updated Mortal Kombat 11 Ultimate. Quite often, Game Pass titles will be missing their DLC content, serving as an incentive for players to spend extra money on games they enjoy.
MK11 Ultimate however, while coming with the DLC, is also the standard next-gen version of the game. With Xbox’s Smart Delivery being one of the Series X|S’ main selling points, it will be interesting to see which version of Mortal Kombat 11 will be coming. Fortunately, if the announcement does align with the upcoming 20th anniversary Xbox showcase, then we won’t have too long to wait to find out.
