Ready to “test your might”? Mortal Kombat 1: Premium Edition just dropped on Thursday (Sept. 14) and marks the latest in the fighting game franchise. Unlike previous installments though, Mortal Kombat 1 will mark a new beginning for the game’s universe. So, if you’ve snagged an Xbox deal or the Play Station 5 restock, make sure you pickup a copy of the game to try out the fresh storyline and characters.

If you’d prefer the standard edition, then you can preorder it now for $69.99 or wait until Tuesday (Sept. 19) when it’s officially released from the same retailers.

What Consoles Are Mortal Kombat 1 on?

NetherRealm Studios used this game as a revamp to the franchise “with a reborn Mortal Kombat Universe created by Fire God Liu Kang, featuring iconic heroes and villains reimagined as they’ve never been seen before,” according to a press release. Now, players can indulge in “story mode,” which provides a more cinematic experience with “new relationships, unexpected twists on classic rivalries and original backstories for a wide-ranging cast of characters,” the press release described.

Expect fan favorite characters like Liu Kang, Scorpion, Sub-Zero, Raiden and Kitana to return as well as the Megan Fox-voiced heroine (who is also a vampire), Nitara.
