Mortal Kombat 1 is getting closer and closer. You can feel it in your blood. The reboot of the bloodiest fighting game franchise is coming, and for a select few, it will be available in a matter of days, if not hours. If you’re one of those ready to defend the EarthRealm, or at least know what the new story is about, learn all about the Fatalities, or discover the new game modes, don’t miss out on all this information.

How to get early access to Mortal Kombat 1?

As we mentioned earlier, Mortal Kombat 1 will be available this September 19th, but some players will be able to get early access to NetherRealm’s new fighting title 5 days before its release. How do you get this early access? By purchasing one of two special versions of the game.

Above the Standard Edition we come across the Premium and Kollector’s Edition, priced at $109.99 and $249.99 respectively. These two editions have a heafty price compared to the Standar Edition, but will give us early access to the game on September 14th, in addition to a number of other extras.  To see all the available Mortal Kombat 1 editions and what each includes, as well as their pre-order bonuses, click here.

When does Mortal Kombat 1 Early Access start?

So, now that you’ve chosen the edition that will get you early access to Mortal Kombat 1, you need to know when exactly it starts. According to the timer that appears on the PlayStation 5 version, this is exactly when you can start playing in the United States on September 14:
