A recently shared image on Reddit has provided an early look at the upcoming Mortal Kombat 1 game, shedding light on a new seasonal single-player game mode. The image, posted by Reddit user DeffersonCamargo on the r/Mortalkombatleaks subreddit, showcases the backside of the game’s cover and gives us a sneak peek into what players can expect.
The image displays the back covers of the game casing, providing a glimpse into the characters and modes that will be included. Notably, it highlights characters like Mileena and Kitana, along with a mention of various game modes.
Of particular interest is the information found about a new game mode termed “INVASIONS.” This mode appears to replace the conventional Krypt feature. According to the user’s translation, the mode is described as
Travel through the realms of Mortal Kombat facing invasions of each season in an all-new single-player experience.”
According to the user who shared the leaked images, this suggests a departure from the familiar Krypt system and hints at a seasonal challenge element.
The translated additional text on the back cover reads:
IT’S IN OUR BLOOD! Discover a Universe reborn of Mortal Kombat created by Fire God Liu Kang.
Mortal Kombat 1 ushers in a new era of iconic franchise with new fighting system, game modes, and fatalities!”
This provides a brief overview of the game’s focus on revitalizing the franchise with updated mechanics and modes.
The leak, which appears to have originated from a Brazilian retailer, has generated considerable discussion within the Mortal Kombat community. The retailer apparently put the physical copies out a bit early, resulting in this leak. Fans are exchanging thoughts on the implications of the “INVASIONS” mode and speculating on how it might reshape the player experience.
While official details are still slim about this new single-player game mode in Mortal Kombat 1, according to some speculations, this might be something on top of the base single-player mode and the story of the game.
The translation of the description of the Invasions game mode suggests that this is some kind of seasonal challenge, so the mode might receive new updates during each seasonal cycle.
However, it’s too early to conclude anything before an official statement from NetherRealm Studios or Warner Bros. Games. Nonetheless, this leak has created intrigue and excitement among the fans, and only time will tell what developers have in store for them.
Mortal Kombat 1 is set to be released on 14th September 2023 for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, Nintendo Switch, and PC.
