Mortal Kombat 1 feature

First 17 minutes of gameplay from the story mode of Mortal Kombat 1

IGN has shared a video, showcasing the first 17 minutes of gameplay from the story mode of Mortal Kombat 1. This video contains spoilers so make sure to avoid it if you want to experience on your own the story campaign of Mortal Kombat 1.

In Mortal Kombat 1, players will discover a reborn Mortal Kombat Universe created by the Fire God Liu Kang. According to its description, this new MK game will feature a new fighting system, game modes, and fatalities.

Warner Bros will release Mortal Kombat 1 on September 19th. Do note that NetherRealm won’t be developing the PC version in-house. Instead, QLOC will be responsible for it. You can also find here the game’s official PC system requirements.

Mortal Kombat 1 will be using Unreal Engine 4 and not Unreal Engine 5. Now the good news here is that the game will release on both Steam and Epic Games Store.

For a UE4 game, Mortal Kombat 1 actually looks great. And yes, the fatalities remain spectacularly gory. To be honest, though, I was expecting a bigger graphical boost over MK11 as this new MK game will be skipping both Xbox One X and PS4. So, it will be interesting to compare the graphics of SF6, MK1 and Tekken 8 once all of them are out.

Lastly, Mortal Kombat 1 won’t support crossplay at launch. However, NetherRealm claims that it will add both crossplay and cross-progression to the game via a post-launch update.

Enjoy these 17 minutes from the Mortal Kombat 1 Story Mode, and stay tuned for more!
