Mortal Kombat 1 Preorder Beta Kicks Off August 18

NetherRealm Studios has announced that the Mortal Kombat 1 preorder beta will go live on August 18, 2023.

In terms of characters the Mortal Kombat 1 preorder beta will include Liu King, Sub-Zero, Kenshi, Kitana, Johnny Cage, and Li Mei. Kameos include Kano, Sonya, Jax, and Frost, with stages featuring The Teahouse and Johnny Cage’s Mansion.

Earlier this week, Ed Boon, co-creator of the Mortal Kombat franchise, revealed that Mortal Kombat 1’s story mode is roughly the same length as the campaigns in MKX-11.

Mortal Kombat 1 is another reboot for the series and takes place in a brand new universe created by Fire God Liu Kang, with familiar characters given brand new stories and relationships. For example, Scorpion and Sub-Zero are now brothers, rather than leading opposing clans and becoming sworn enemies.

The latest entry in the fighting game series also introduces Kameo Fighters, which are familiar characters that can assist players in battle. NetherRealm Studios recently confirmed that Cyrax, Frost and Sektor will be joining the ranks of the Kameo Fighters roster, joining the likes of classic Sonya and Kano.
