The Mortal Kombat 11 closed beta starts on Wednesday, March 27 at 8 AM PT in North America till Sunday, March 31 at 11:59 PM PT. The closed beta will be only for those that have preordered the game.
NetherRealm Studios recently held an online stress test session for the MK 11. They handed out playable codes to a large selection of gamers. Only three characters were made available in the online stress test session. The characters included the yellow ninja Scorpion (also the series frontman), blood mage Skarlet, and Baraka, the Tarkatan from Outworld with blades in his arms.
The new Mortal Kombat 11 Official Beta Trailer featured the characters that will be made playable in the closed beta. The same three characters from the online stress test will be playable, along with the addition of two new playable characters.
Kabal, the speedster with hook blades, and Jade, the emerald staff fighter, are the other two playable characters in the upcoming closed beta.
After the reveal of the MK 11 Story trailer a while ago, we’ve got a basic gist of what to expect from the upcoming game. A lot of time travel and alternate reality business seems to be going on, including characters meeting different versions of themselves at different points within the timeline.
Dominic Cianciolo, the story director at NetherRealm Studios, confirmed the length of Mortal Kombat 11’s story in a recent interview. The game’s story was confirmed to last roughly 8 hours.
During the beta, you’ll be able to participate in Online multiplayer matches and a single player mode called Towers of Time as well as play the three characters announced in the trailer.
Mortal Kombat 11 releases this April for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PC and the Nintendo Switch.
