I’m excited to tell you about the next chapter in the storied history of Mortal Kombat. It could not be a better time to go back to the beginning! Over the last year we have been celebrating 30 years of Mortal Kombat, and this year we will debut Mortal Kombat 1.
Real quick! Let’s get everyone up to speed. At the end of the Mortal Kombat 11: Aftermath storyline, Fire God Liu Kang defeats Shang Tsung and retrieves Kronika’s crown. He then uses her hourglass to restart the universe to be a peaceful, prosperous reality like the world we know but shaped by his noble hand… but things don’t always go according to plan.
We at NetherRealm Studios are excited to bring you the thrilling next chapter of Mortal Kombat. We’ve touched on the story and where it all begins, now let’s talk about the Kombat! With Mortal Kombat 1 we are giving our players even more chances to truly show off their personality through their gameplay style. As much as I want to spill it, I can’t give away anything about our new, exciting kombat systems just yet, but don’t worry, that info will be coming soon through our social media channels: Instagram, TikTok, Twitter, Twitch, YouTube, Facebook, Discord, Reddit, and the returning Kombat Kast! Be sure to follow to stay up to speed — it’s going to be bloody good time!
Mortal Kombat 1 is now available for pre-order for Xbox Series X|S on the Xbox Store, including the Standard, Premium, and Kollector’s Editions. Those who pre-order on Xbox Series X|S will receive Shang Tsung as an in-game playable character and access to the Mortal Kombat 1 Beta, which will be available in August 2023.
