Were are just over a month from the release of Mortal Kombat 11, and many people are curious about when they’ll finally have a chance to play. There was a stress test for the game last weekend, but not everyone got a chance to try it. Fortunately, those who pre-order the game for PS4 or Xbox One will finally gained access to the previously confirmed Closed Beta on March 27.

This information was revealed by the official Mortal Kombat Twitter account, which revealed when exactly the Mortal Kombat 11 Closed Beta would be running in all regions.

  • Asia and Oceania: 2:00 AEDT on March 28 until 17:59 AEDT on April 1.

While the reception to the stress test seems to have been fairly positive, NeatherRealm has assured players that things like game speed will be better in the final version of Mortal Kombat 11. We should also expect another Kombat Kast sometime later this week. This will likely reveal Kotal Khan as a playable character as the developer’s tease for the livestream seemed to show his entrance:

Mortal Kombat 11 will release for PC, PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch on April 23. To try out the aforementioned Closed Beta at the end of this month you must pre-order the game for consoles. You can currently do that on Amazon.
