Mortal Kombat 1 Pre-order Beta Details

NetherRealm Studios and Warner Bros. Games released an Official Pre-Order Beta Weekend Trailer for the game.

It showcased Lui Kang, Kenshi, Kitana, Johnny Cage, Li Mei, Sub-Zero, and several other Kameo fighters like Kano, Sonya, Frost, and Jax. The trailer also gave us a glimpse of the realms such as the Tea House and the captivating Mansion of Johnny Cage.

The beta offers two game modes, one being the 1v1 online multiplayer mode and the other being a limited-time Klassic Towers mode against AI opponents. Do note that players need to have an active PlayStation Plus or Xbox Live Gold subscription to participate in the online 1v1 mode.

The beta will be available from the 18th to the 21st August specifically for the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S consoles. Unfortunately, there is no beta program available for PC and Nintendo Switch users.

Keep in mind that the early access is only available to players who pre-purchased the game digitally from the official stores. If you purchased the physical version or you bought the digital version from a different retailer, you need to sign in or create a Warner Bros. Games account to access the redeem code. If you need further assistance, head over to the official Mortal Kombat Support page.
