Prior to this announcement, NetherRealm Studios ran an online stress test over the weekend for the game. The only to have participated in this two day test was to sign up ahead of time, and it also limited players on what they could do within the game. Due to the nature of this test, this closed Beta will be the first true look at the potential final build of Mortal Kombat 11. As we mentioned earlier, the closed Beta is available to anyone who pre-orders the game, as long as they pre-order before the Beta actually starts.
Other than the dates and times, no other information was given. Therefore, it’s safe to assume that at the very least, the fighters that were shown during the Mortal Kombat 11: The Reveal Event will be available to play. This includes Baraka, Raiden, Sub-Zero, Scorpion, Sonya, Skarlet, and Geras. Since then, the developer has revealed more fighters, bringing the count up to 19, such as Johnny Cage, Jade, Cassie Cage, and Erron Black. Hopefully we’ll have access to those fighters as well, which would make the Beta well worth the wait.
Mortal Kombat 11 will launch on April 23 for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
