Following the exciting reveal of Mortal Kombat 1 this morning, Warner Bros. Interactive and NetherRealm Studios has released details of the three pre-order editions that will be made available for purchase from tomorrow, May 19.
Mortal Kombat 1 will be made available in three formats, as detailed below. All pre-orders include Shang Tsung as a playable kombatant.
Mortal Kombat 1 Standard Edition will be available physically and digitally for $69.99 (USD) on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, Nintendo Switch, and PC, including Steam and Epic Games Store.
Mortal Kombat 1 Premium Edition will be available physically and digitally for $109.99 on PS5, Xbox Series X|S, Nintendo Switch, and PC (Steam/EGS) and will include the first Kombat Pack, early access to the game beginning Sept. 14, and 1,250 Dragon Krystals (in-game currency). The Kombat Pack will feature a Johnny Cage character skin with the likeness of famed actor and martial artist, Jean-Claude Van Damme (usable at launch), early access to six DLC characters (available post-launch), and five new Kameo Fighters (available post-launch).
Mortal Kombat 1 Kollector’s Edition will be available physically at select retailers for $249.99 on PS5 and Xbox Series X|S only and will include all Premium Edition content, and early access, along with a 16.5-inch Liu Kang sculpture designed by COARSE and a similarly inspired Liu Kang in-game character skin. Also included are three exclusive art prints, steel casing, and a total of 2,700 Dragon Krystals.
As dedicated MK fans will know, Jean Claude Van Damme was the original inspiration for Johnny Cage, given that Midway had initially imagined Mortal Kombat as a fighting game that would actually star the Muscles from Brussels (as we all called him back then). These listings all give our first confirmation of post-release DLC characters, additional Kamoe Fighters for MK1‘s assist system, and, of course, in-game currency. Let’s just keep it to one form of currency this time around, if we can.
Mortal Kombat 1 launches September 19 on PS5, PC, Xbox Series X, and Nintendo Switch.
