Mortal Kombat is reborn in a new bone-crushing era
The iconic Mortal Kombat franchise is back and better than ever. Warner Bros. Games has just announced the release of Mortal Kombat 1, a revitalized and reimagined version of the beloved Mortal Kombat universe. With a new fighting system, game modes, and Fatalities, this game will surely satisfy both old-school fans and newcomers alike.

"It's in our blood. Discover a reborn Mortal Kombat universe created by the God of Fire, Liu Kang. Mortal Kombat 1 ushers in a new era of the iconic franchise with a new fighting system, game modes, and Fatalities!" And let me tell you, it's about time! After all, who can resist the thrill of finishing off your opponent with a jaw-dropping Fatality?

If that's not exciting enough, players who pre-order the game will receive Shang Tsung as a free playable character. However, it's still unclear if Shang Tsung will be available for separate purchase at a later date. But fear not, the anticipation doesn't stop there. Console players who pre-order the game on Xbox Series X/S and PlayStation 5 will have the chance to download the beta version in August, one month before the official release. It's like an appetizer before the party.

In other related news, earlier this year, the CEO of Warner Bros. Discovery mentioned during a conference call that Mortal Kombat 12 would be released this year. Although specific details about the nature of the sequel were not provided at the time, recent developments have shed some light on what's to come. The official Mortal Kombat social media accounts recently posted a video where a clock pointer pointed to 12 and quickly jumped to the number one. Speculation was rampant, but now we finally have confirmation that the long-awaited sequel to this renowned fighting game series is indeed a reboot.

Mortal Kombat 1 will take place within a new timeline, allowing NetherRealm Studios greater creative flexibility to reimagine a game that holds a special place in fans' hearts. These reboots have been a consistent feature since the release of Mortal Kombat 9 and it's a wise choice given the vast history the series has accumulated over the years.

Mark your calendars because Mortal Kombat 1 is scheduled to be released on September 19 and will be available for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S, PC, and Nintendo Switch. Get ready for heart-pounding battles, intense Fatalities, and the iconic phrase "Finish Him."
