If you like fighting games, but you’ve been waiting to buy Mortal Kombat 1 for yourself, this Black Friday really is the perfect time to pick it up. A new MK1 sale is starting on both the Xbox Store and PlayStation Store, offering players an impressive discount. With MK1 only a few weeks old, this is the cheapest the game has ever been – and we don’t think it will be this cheap again for a while.
When it comes to finding the best Black Friday Xbox deals on actual videogames, the Xbox Store itself is a fantastic place to look. The same can be said of the PlayStation Store and the best Black Friday PlayStation deals, as well. You might be limiting yourself to digital versions of new Xbox games and new PS5 games, but the discounts on offer shouldn’t be ignored. You can always bolster your storage space with the best Xbox expansion cards and best PS5 SSDs, anyway. If you want to pick up and play Mortal Kombat 1 this Black Friday, this is definitely something you should consider – it’s at its cheapest right now, but it’s going to take up over 100 GB of storage space.
However, with the game itself only dropping 64 days ago, and the fact that it’s one of the best fighting games available at the moment, it’s quite surprising to see it among some of the best Xbox deals available on the Xbox Store right now – and among the the fantastic selection of PS5 deals currently available on the PlayStation Store too, for that matter. However, with it available at almost a third off already, that’s where you’ll find it.
From now until November 30, Mortal Kombat 1 is available at a respectable 30% on the Xbox Store. For those of you in the US, this means it will set you back just $48.99 for the next handful of days – which is a steal considering how new the game itself is.
If you’re in the UK, the same discount applies and Mortal Kombat 1 will cost you just £45.49 – again, not too bad at all.
While it is a shame that the Premium Edition of Mortal Kombat 1 isn’t in this sale, buying the game at a discount alongside the Kombat Pack at full price – which gives you access to almost everything the Premium Edition offers additionally – is cheaper than the Premium Edition at full price. So, there’s still savings to be made if you want to make sure you’re prepared when the Mortal Kombat 1 Quan Chi release date or Mortal Kombat 1 Homelander release date roll around in the coming months.
If you’re playing on PlayStation, you’ll be pleased to know Mortal Kombat 1 is also 30% off on the PlayStation Store until November 28 – with the Premium Edition also 30% off, something Xbox players aren’t actually able to enjoy this time around.
You can also find some deals on the physical version of Mortal Kombat 1 below, if you like your disc-based games.
We know it’s a shame that it looks like the MK1 Homelander voice won’t come from Antony Starr, but he’s shaping up to be a fantastic addition to the roster of Mortal Kombat 1 characters – especially if Viltrumite Omni-Man is anything to go by.
He’s quickly become one of the best Mortal Kombat 1 characters available, thanks to his fantastic array of air combos, and we can imagine Homelander will boast a similar effectiveness in aerial combat – you know, because he can also fly.
If you don’t want to pick up the Kombat Pack just yet, you don’t have to miss out. You can try Omni-Man for free thanks to the new Mortal Kombat 1 Trail Towers in the single-player Invasions mode; then, you can always pick him up as individual DLC for $7.99 – which is quite a bit cheaper than the Kombat Pack. Recent MK1 leaks claiming fan-favorite fighter Noob Saibot is on the way in the future were also recently reinforced by series co-creator Ed Boon. So, if you’re a fan, it’s definitely worth picking this game up on the cheap while you can.
