“Tomorrow is a new dawn,” the official Mortal Kombat account tweeted on Wednesday.
“It is time. May 18 6am PT,” reads a message in an accompanying video, which is viewable below.
The debut trailer for the title can therefore be expected to be released at that time, which is 9am ET / 2pm BST.
But ahead of an official announcement, various details have seemingly leaked. Reliable dataminer billbil-kun claimed last week that Mortal Kombat 1 will be released for PS5, Xbox Series X/S, PC and Nintendo Switch.
It’s also been claimed that Warner is targeting a September release window for the game.
Mortal Kombat 1 will reportedly feature a character pass that adds Peacemaker from the DC Universe as a guest fighter.
According to Windows Central, another possible DLC character is Homelander from comic book series The Boys.
