Tomorrow, September 14, people who purchased the $109.99 Premium Edition of the M-rated fighting game Mortal Kombat 1 will be able to start playing a few days before the people who bought the standard edition. However, those Early Access players will be stuck playing online multiplayer with others on the same platform, at least for now.
B Post X (formerly Twitter).Developer NetherRealm Studios has confirmed this crossover Mortal Kombat 1 Support “will not be available at launch”. He added that the team is “hard at work implementing the feature into the game” and that it will be added sometime after launch, though there are no details on when that might happen.
With crossplay support between the major gaming platforms becoming the norm rather than the exception, it’s a bit disappointing that Mortal Kombat 1 launches tomorrow without this type of feature. Hopefully we won’t have to wait much longer for this to be added in a post-launch update.
Meanwhile, NetherRealm released the Final launch games trailer for Mortal Kombat 1. The trailer quickly goes over the new status quo of the game’s lore and universe after the time reset that ended the last game in the series, Mortal Kombat 11.
The trailer also shows off some of the game’s special features, including the new Invasions single-player mode, and the new Kameo fighters that join matches for a few seconds. We also get another look at the voice and skin of Johnny Cage’s Jean-Claude Van Damme.
The standard version of Mortal Kombat 1 Coming September 19th to PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, Nintendo Switch and PC. You can order in advance Both the premium and standard versions of the game are now on Amazon.
