Mortal Kombat 1 Ushers In A New Era This September


Share post:

After a few teases, Mortal Kombat 1 has been announced and ushers in a new era for its kombatants by wiping the slate clean.

Following up on the conclusions of both Mortal Kombat 11 and its Aftermath expansion, Liu Kang is now an all-powerful fire god that rules over the reset timeline he created. Despite creating a peaceful new era, danger still looms its ugly head. The extremely violent cinematic trailer gives us glimpses of familiar (mostly masked) faces, though expect new twists on classic rivalries. 

Per an official press release, the following fighters are confirmed so far:

  • Liu Kang
  • Scorpion
  • Sub-Zero
  • Kitana
  • Mileena
  • Kung Lao
  • Raiden
  • Johnny Cage
  • Shang Tsung (pre-order bonus)

Mortal Kombat 1 will include a new cinematic story campaign and introduces a new feature called Kameo Fighter, a unique roster of partner fighters that assist players during matches. 

“Mortal Kombat 1 marks a new beginning for the franchise and we couldn’t be more excited to share this original storyline and fresh take on classic characters with our fans,” said NetherRealm studio head Ed Boon in the press release. “We’re also introducing our Kameo Fighter system which brings a unique roster of partner characters into the mix, and we are looking forward to showing this feature as well as more new elements of the game very soon.”

Mortal Kombat 1 is launching on September 19 for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S, Switch, and PC. Pre-orders begin tomorrow, May 19, which grants you a playable Shang Tsung as well as early beta access. There will be three editions of the game:
