Mortal Kombat 1 Pre Order Guide & Edition Comparison

Mortal Kombat 1 is the newest entry in the Mortal Kombat series, and pre order for all of the game’s editions will open soon. However, as with many modern game pre-orders, there’s quite a few editions to navigate through, each with their own features and benefits, at a price. Here’s everything you need to know about Mortal Kombat 1 pre orders, including when & where you can pre-order, and what each edition contains.

Mortal Kombat 1 Pre-Order: When Can You Pre-Order?

Mortal Kombat 1 pre orders will open on May 19 at 10 AM PDT (update: it now seems pre-orders will open at the close of the Kommunity Chat with NetherRealm). There’s no news on exactly where these pre-orders will be open. However, it seems safe to assume that pre-orders will open at this time across all major retailers, both physical and digital for all of Mortal Kombat 1‘s target platforms: PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, Nintendo Switch, and PC (via Steam and Epic Games Store).

Mortal Kombat 1: Which Edition Should You Get?

Mortal Kombat 1 is releasing with three different available editions for players to choose from. Each has their own benefits, and certain restrictions on platform, which are available on the game’s FAQ page. These are the editions that players can choose from.

Standard Edition

The standard edition of MK1 will retail for $69.99, and will be available physically and digitally across all of the aforementioned platforms. The only bonus with this edition pre-order is the playable character Shang Tsung.
