NetherRealm is developing the PS5 and Xbox Series X/S versions of the game and overseeing development of the PC and Nintendo Switch versions, which are being handled by QLOC and Shiver Entertainment / Saber Interactive respectively.
Announced earlier this month and set for release on September 19, the game “will introduce a reborn Mortal Kombat Universe that has been created by the Fire God Liu Kang, featuring reimagined versions of iconic characters as they’ve never been seen before”.
Players who buy Mortal Kombat 1’s Premium Edition or Kollector’s Edition will get early access to the game beginning on September 14.
These two editions of the game also include a Kombat Pack offering early access to six new playable characters, which have yet to be announced but have seemingly been leaked by Amazon.
