MK fans, get ready because the Mortal Kombat 11 Closed Beta dates have been announced, and you’ll get the chance to test the latest installment in NetherRealm Studios‘ series of fighting video games as early as next week.
Since this is a Closed Beta, not everyone will be able to access it; however, there is still time to join if you’re interested.
The MK11 Closed Beta was actually announced for quite some time now, but the dates were unknown, until yesterday when NetherRealm Studios made the following announcement on Twitter.
On 28th March, you’re next when the #MK11 Closed Beta begins!

How To Enter Mortal Kombat 11 Closed Beta
Even though the Closed MK11 Beta is taking place next week, the good news is that you still have time to secure a spot and try the videogame before others.
The bad news is that you can play Mortal Kombat 11 earlier only by pre-ordering the game.
NetherRealm Studios also announced 3 Mortal Kombat 11 Editions. Pre-ordering any of them grants you a guaranteed spot for the upcoming Closed Beta.
Additionally, you’ll also unlock Shao Kahn, who is a DLC pre-order bonus character.
In case you didn’t have the chance to pre-order MK11, here are some retailers you should check out.
