Warner Bros. is offering PlayStation and Xbox players an early look at Mortal Kombat 1 via a pre-order beta.
The beta period will begin on 18th August and last until 21st August.
Players who preorder the game on PlayStation 5 or Xbox Series X|S will receive a code to access the beta.

Warner Bros. revealed that players who preorder Mortal Kombat 1 will be able to play the next beta that will go live on 18th August. It does not look like there will be a beta via a closed sign-up process or an open beta before the game releases and if you were hoping for one, you are out of luck. The game releases on 14th September for all platforms in case you are not interested in pre-ordering the game.
