How to get access to the Mortal Kombat 11 beta

You have to pre-order your copy of Mortal Kombat in order to have access to the beta and it's only for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 4 Pro, Xbox One and Xbox One X users.

You will need a PlayStation Plus subscription or Xbox Live Gold membership to participate in online multiplayer matches during the beta, but you won't need either of them for the Custom Character Variation System or Towers of Time content.

You can pre-order your copy from Amazon for $60 for the Standard edition and $100 for the Premium edition. The Standard edition only comes with your copy of the game. The Premium edition comes with the full game and Kombat Pack inside of a steel case. Premium editions are not available for the Nintendo Switch.
