Mortal Kombat 1 Is Currently The 2nd Best-Selling Game on Steam

Expert Verified By

May Be Biggest Fighting Game of 2023!

The last game in the Mortal Kombat franchise came out in 2019, and over three years later, the franchise is returning with Mortal Kombat 1, which will be available to play for early-access buyers in just a few hours.

Mortal Kombat games are always exciting for audiences, and this excitement has boosted the latest iteration’s current position on Steam, allowing it to reach the list of best-selling games.

Why it matters: The series has always found success among the masses, with Mortal Kombat 11 making over $500 million in profits in three years.

As seen above, Mortal Kombat 1 is currently the second-best-selling title on Steam at the moment, and the game may reach the top spot after the surge in preorders and buyers at release.

Baldur’s Gate 3 is currently standing at the top position. It has retained this position for over a month after it became the second biggest Steam launch of 2023 and a contender for Game of the Year.

Still, Mortal Kombat 1 has eclipsed many popular games after the anticipation for a rebooted Mortal Kombat experience. The recently released Starfield is also among the games left behind.

Earlier this year, Street Fighter 6 became a massive launch on Steam, hinting at the current popularity of 2D fighting games. Mortal Kombat 1 is shaping up to be another enormous launch, potentially surpassing Street Fighter 6.

The series has always found mass appeal due to its spectacle and engaging story modes. Mortal Kombat 1 is bringing a fresh take on the series and introduces characters from the 3D era of the series.

Such inclusions have also earned the interest of legacy players who enjoyed games like Mortal Kombat: Armageddon and Mortal Kombat: Deception in the past.

Much of the news regarding Mortal Kombat 1 has been very positive. Following the tradition of guest fighters, the title is bringing Homelander and Omni-Man to the series, but Ed Boon confirms they will come with distinct playstyles.

The game also brings back several classic Mortal Kombat features, like the block dash from Mortal Kombat 9, appealing to fans of all iterations of the series.

With the series having returned after several years, 2023 is an exciting year to be a Mortal Kombat fan. The latest game is hours away from its early access launch, and sites like YouTube are already filled with content for the game from various sources.
