Mortal Kombat 1 special editions explained: Standard, Premium & Kollector's
The Mortal Kombat 1 special editions offer more for die-hard fans of the series, but it isn’t always straightforward to actually understand what is included in the Standard, Premium, and Kollector's editions.
Mortal Kombat 1 is arriving later this year and sees the series go through its second reboot in the last 15 years. After the events of Mortal Kombat 11, the status quo has completely changed and this new, fresh version of the world is offering plenty of new iterations of beloved characters from the series like Reptile, Liu Kang and Mileena.
All of the Mortal Kombat 1 editions include a variety of different goodies for fans to enjoy, so here is everything you can get if you purchase either the Standard, Premium or Kollector’s Edition.

What is the Mortal Kombat 1 pre-order bonus?
Regardless of which version of the game you buy, if you pre-order the game you will get Shang Tsung as part of the package. Shang Tsung is often one of the main villains of the series, known for stealing other people's souls.
Most recently, he was the main antagonist for the events of the Mortal Kombat 11 Aftermath DLC. Not a lot is known about Shang Tsung in the game so far, or what this version of the character is like, but it looks as though he will be the main antagonist once more.
