It’d be a fatal(ity) mistake to miss out.

A closed beta has been announced for Mortal Kombat 11, with PS4 and Xbox One players getting a chance to go hands-on, if you’ve pre-ordered the game that is.

The beta starts on March 27 for most regions and will wun until April , giving you an entire weekend full of bone breaking and dismembering fights – hooray.

There’s no word as to whether the closed beta will have the complete roster but it’s more than likely that you’ll get a decent chunk of characters to mortally combat with; personally, I’m hoping that time-bending Geras will be available to try out, mostly because I’m only half decent with Scorpion and need to say that I’m good with at least one other character.

The closed beta begins on March 27 worldwide, except for Asia and Australia which starts on March 28, and you’ll be able to try it out if you’ve pre-ordered Mortal Kombat 11 for the PS4 or Xbox One.
