Is Mortal Kombat 1 coming to Xbox Game Pass?

Let's cut to the chase, Mortal Kombat 1 won't be coming to Game Pass on day one.

Mortal Kombat 1 is coming to quite a few different gaming systems. These include PlayStation 5, PC via the Steam Store and Nintendo Switch. It won't be coming to PlayStation 4 or Xbox One for that matter.

So, if you haven't already, you need to upgrade your gaming system to next-gen if you want to play MK1.

Usually, day one Game Pass games are published by Xbox Game Studios. This includes huge games in the last few years such as Forza Horizon 5, Halo Infinite and Minecraft have all been available via Game Pass.

Unfortunately, though, MK1 isn't an XboxGame Studios game, so it won't be available on Game Pass from day one. It's possible it could join the service later down the line, but there's currently no plan for this to happen.

Mortal Kombat 1 price

Mortal Kombat 1's price doesn't vary depending upon the system you're playing on, it's the same on Xbox as it is for other systems. MK1 is available to pre-order right now for £59.99/$69.99.

That's the standard version of the game, but if you want the Premium version of MK1, you'll need to spend slightly more. That's coming in at £84.99/$109.99, but you do get a lot more for your money including in-game currency and a few other goodies.

Extra items bundled in with the Kollector's Edition include the aforementioned Early access, a 16.5-inch Liu Kang sculpture designed by COARSE and an inspired Liu Kang in-game character skin. You also get three exclusive art prints, as well as a steel case for the game and 2,700 Dragon Krystals (in-game currency).
