It’s just about time to dive back into the gory world of Mortal Kombat. The latest entry in the iconic fighting game series, Mortal Kombat 1, releases September 18 on consoles and PC. However, you can start playing as early as tomorrow, September 14, if you preorder the Premium edition. PC players can take advantage of some great deals on both digital Steam editions of the game.
