Warner Bros. Games has announced Mortal Kombat 1. It is a brand-new title in the acclaimed Mortal Kombat videogame franchise.
The upcoming game will introduce a reborn Mortal Kombat Universe that has been created by the Fire God Liu Kang. This new universe will feature reimagined versions of iconic characters as they’ve never been seen before. This latest entry is scheduled to release on September 19th, for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, Nintendo Switch, and PC.
What awaits us in this new universe?
NetherRealm’s genre-defining Story Mode returns with an immersive cinematic narrative. It will feature unexpected twists on classic rivalries and original backstories for a wide-ranging cast of legendary fighters. These include Liu Kang, Scorpion, Sub-Zero, Raiden, Kung Lao, Kitana, Mileena, Shang Tsung, Johnny Cage, and many others. Mortal Kombat 1 will also introduce Kameo Fighters.
