Mortal Kombat 1 is the latest reboot of the iconic fighting game franchise that started in 1992. The game features a new story mode, revamped graphics, improved gameplay mechanics, and a roster of 24 characters, including fan-favourites like Scorpion, Sub-Zero, Liu Kang, and Sonya Blade.
By the end of Mortal Kombat 11 and its Aftermath expansion, reality got a reset courtesy of a newly empowered Liu Kang and the hourglass mechanism left behind by Kronika. This timeline, which is referred to as the New Era, is protected by Kang and features familiar faces in reimagined roles. Some things never change, though, and as seen in the reveal trailer, classic foes such as Shang Tsung are still up to no good even after they've been given a fresh chance to live a peaceful life.
NetherRealm says that Mortal Kombat 1 will feature a new fighting system, game modes, bone-crushing finishing moves, and more. One of these new systems is Kameo fighters.
Kameo fighters are a new system in Mortal Kombat 1. They are a unique selection of partners who'll assist you during matches and are chosen separately from the main roster of fighters. Sadly, there is not a lot of information about the specific Kameo fighters that will be available in the game yet.
So far, NetherRealm has confirmed that the roster will consist of established characters from the early Mortal Kombat games. While Johnny Cage didn't appear in the reveal trailer, NetherRealm did confirm that he'll be in the game and that a downloadable skin of Hollywood legend Jean-Claude Van Damme will be available for him.
Mortal Kombat 1 features the most brutal and creative fatalities in the series history. Fatalities are finishing moves that you can perform on your opponent when they are low on health. Fatalities are not only gruesome and satisfying to execute, but they also reward you with extra coins and experience points.
Mortal Kombat 1 is set to release on September 19, 2023. The game will be available on PS5, Xbox Series X, PC, and Nintendo Switch.
