If you’re still wondering whether or not you should buy Mortal Kombat 11 this weekend, well now you have the chance to give it a test drive. Starting today and running through October 14th, you can play a rather sizable trial of MK11 on PS4 and Xbox One. And, even better yet, should you want to buy it afterward, you can get it at a huge discount. It will be 40-percent off on PS4 and Xbox digital stores, with the standard version priced at just $36 and the Premium edition priced at just $54.
The game features a handful of new DLC fighters, inlcuding the latest entry to the roster – The Terminator himself, alongside the Joker and many others. Even if it’s just a trial, you’ll get the chance to try out a large variety of modes, including multiplayer with all the base game characters. You can also customize your character, but why we would waste time looking good when we could crush skulls for an entire weekend.
Even if this weekend is free, you will need the Xbox Live Gold membership to play against other players. In case you don’t own one, you can either buy one or enjoy your free weekend on Mortal Kombat’s story mode, the first two chapters in the NetherRealm’s. If you’re wondering about Xbox Games Pass, Microsoft has a deal that links your live membership and games pass subscription together for a discount – you might want to check that out.
