Last Chance To Pre-Order Mortal Kombat 11 And Get Its Pre-Order Bonuses (US)
We're less than a week away!
It's finally April, which means the release date for NetherRealm's Mortal Kombat 11 is almost here--the game will launch on Xbox One, PS4, PC, and Nintendo Switch on April 23. Since announcing the game at the 2018 Game Awards, the studio has revealed official gameplay, some playable characters, fighter customizations, and an expensive Kollector's edition.
Mortal Kombat 11's playable character roster includes several franchise favorites, like Scorpion, Sub-Zero, Sonya, Skarlet, and Raiden. The latest trailer announced that Kitana, another series mainstay, will join the roster. Other returning characters include Erron Black, Cassie Cage, Jacqui Briggs, and Johnny Cage. Besides previous characters, new fighters will also join the fray, including time-manipulator Geras and elder god Cetrion. A third new character was also revealed recently: the Kollector, a four-armed servant of the Outworld Empire.
Combat is based on a new graphics engine "showcasing every skull-shattering, eye-popping moment," a description that is appropriate given our first look at the game's gruesome and bloody Fatalities. NetherRealm has also been touting the custom character variations in the upcoming Mortal Kombat, which are designed to give you "unprecedented control to customize the fighters and make them your own."
A closed beta for those who pre-ordered the game for Xbox One or PS4 was held March 28 through 31--here's what that gameplay looked like. And if you're curious how Mortal Kombat 11 runs on Nintendo Switch, we got the chance to try it out at PAX East, and the fighting mechanics are smoother than ever (although there is a slight visual downgrade).
Whether you're a longtime fan of the series or simply want to give this one a try, you might be wondering what you get for pre-ordering. Here are the prices and perks for ordering every edition of the game, including a couple of sweet pre-order bonuses.
Mortal Kombat 11 Pre-Order Bonus
If you pre-order any version of Mortal Kombat 11, you'll receive Shao Kahn as a playable character. GameStop is also offering an additional pre-order bonus for Mortal Kombat 11: an exclusive tin box and Scorpion neck wrap.
See the full list of pre-order options below.

The standard edition of Mortal Kombat 11 just comes with the game itself and any pre-order bonuses.

Mortal Kombat 11 Premium Edition
The premium edition of Mortal Kombat 11 comes with the base game, plus the Kombat Pack. The Kombat Pack will get you six new DLC playable characters released over time, a week of early access to DLC characters, seven exclusive character skins, and seven exclusive sets of gear. During a recent panel at C2E2, NetherRealm confirmed that Shang Tsung is one of the six playable characters included in the Kombat Pack. If you pre-order a physical copy of the game, you'll also receive a Mortal Kombat 11 official steelbook.

The Kollector's Edition offers the most bang for the most buck, including the game's premium edition (with Kombat Pack), a steelbook case, a collector's box, and a 1:1 scale Scorpion mask (which isn't wearable).
