Mortal Kombat 1 has been officially announced only a few days ago by NetherRealm Studios, but fans are already looking forward to an official gameplay reveal. The riveting cinematic trailer disclosed the new direction of the series, which is seemingly a reboot, but the users have also been wondering about the new gameplay changes. A new Tweet by the Summer Game Fest event’s Twitter handle has seemingly confirmed the alluring details.

As revealed by Geoff Keighley, the first look into Mortal Kombat 1’s gameplay will be officially unveiled on June 8. The gameplay will allow newbies and long-time veteran gamers to bask in the grotesque yet gratifying combat. Ed Boon may also reveal some new figures for the roster in the new video, but no other details have been stated. The cinematic trailer has amped the fans to new lengths due to attractive character design changes.

The new changes and the reboot approach have also led many fans to inquire about the potential of Mortal Kombat 1; its release later this year will soothe all anxious hearts. While many gameplay questions remained unanswered, the official website for the entry already lists some of the wistful characters we can expect to see in the bloodied rounds of Mortal Kombat 1, and many others have leaked online.

Playable characters like Scorpion, Sub-Zero, Raiden, Johnny Cage, and the sort are just among a few of the included options. Moreover, there have also been a few leaks that affirmed the upcoming DLC and Guest characters. For instance, figures like Peacemaker and Homelander have leaked in the past.

Conan the Barbarian is also planning to make an entry in Mortal Kombat 1, alongside Quan Chi, Omni-Man, Ermac, and Takeda, based on an Amazon listing leak. The Kameo characters include Tremor, Johnny Cage, Khameleon, Mavado, Ferra, and a Jean Claude Van Damme skin. On the other hand, Baraka might have just been affirmed for the hardcore fighting title.

The title is a reboot, which means most of the characters we know and love will play different roles and feature varied and possibly unexpected relationships between the roster. While the lore of the franchise has always been a difficult pill to swallow, the reboot will let gamers imagine the Mortal Kombat universe through a new lens.

Some downright brutal brawls are expected to appear in the gameplay trailer, causing fans to be more hyped than ever. However, all the fun to be had is only possible with a fat pocket; the entry will drain your wallet out of a staggering $69.99, becoming the second Nintendo Switch release to cost such a high amount. Moreover, the reboot will consume 100 GB on your storage device.
