If you buy an upgraded Mortal Kombat 11 edition you get some unique items. Of course, those upgrades come at a cost. In this guide we’ll take you through each edition and help you pick the right Mortal Kombat 11 edition for your platform of choice.
Mortal Kombat 11 is the latest entry in the long-running series and it’s out on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Windows PC, and Nintendo Switch.
Now that the game’s release date is here, and with reviews starting to popup, many people are trying to decide if the game is worth buying.
Retailers are currently offering three versions of Mortal Kombat 11. The list includes the standard edition, the Premium Edition, and a high-end Kollector’s Edition that comes with a bunch of extras.
Each edition has a different price point so you’ll want to make sure you pick the right edition for your budget.
Mortal Kombat 11 Standard Edition

If your Best Buy Gamers Club Unlocked (GCU) account is still active, you can save the usual 20% on any copy of the game.
This version comes with the least amount of content, but it’s the version most people, particularly newcomers to the series and/or fighting games, should buy.
Who should buy this edition of Mortal Kombat 11?
- Newcomers to the series.
- Casual fans of fighting games.
- Those who don’t have a ton of time to play games and aren’t sure how much time they can invest.
Mortal Kombat 11 Premium Edition
For those that want a little more from their purchase there’s the Mortal Kombat Premium Edition. The Premium Edition comes with a number of bonus items though it costs a lot more than the standard edition. The Mortal Kombat 11 Premium Edition is $100 at most retailers.
Buying this version of the game gets you a Kombat Pack and a steelcase. The Kombat Pack includes early access to characters, character skins, and additional content. It includes:
- 6 new DLC playable characters, released over time

Mortal Kombat 11 Kollector’s Edition
There’s also an extremely expensive Mortal Kombat 11 Kollector’s Edition that’s an exclusive to GameStop.
The Kollector’s Edition is a $300 bundle, yes $300, and it includes an exclusive Steelcase & Magnet, a Kollector Box, and a 1:1 Scale Scorpion Mask that measures 35 x 18 x 21 cm.
Who should buy the Mortal Kombat 11 Kollector’s Edition when it’s in stock? This bundle, in our opinion, is for one person in particular: The diehard Mortal Kombat fan/collector.
Casual fans of Mortal Kombat or fighting games in general should go with one of the other options.
Digital vs. Physical
Mortal Kombat 11 comes in digital and physical formats and there are some key differences between the two. Let’s start with a few reasons why you might want to buy a digital copy of the game.
If you’re sick and tired of having discs clutter up your entertainment center or your shelves, go with a digital copy. It’ll help keep the clutter down.
If you live in a house where discs often get lost or damaged (maybe you’ve got a kid that loves to toss discs around), go with a digital copy.
If you buy the game digitally, you don’t have to locate your disc every time you want to play. You can just fire up your console and hit play.
So those are a few reasons to consider going digital. Here are a few reasons to consider going with a physical copy of Mortal Kombat 11.
If you go with a physical copy you’ll be able to sell it to a store like GameStop or via a reseller like Craigslist or eBay if you get tired of it.
And if you buy a physical copy you’ll be able to easily lend your copy out to friends or family members when you decide to move onto another game or if they want to try it before they buy.
Pre-Order Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order for Bonuses
One of the best reasons to pre-order a copy of the game is for the pre-order bonuses.
If you pre-order any version of Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order before its release in mid-November, you get some bonus in-game items.
These bonus items include an orange lightsaber blade color, a Mygeeto Campaign Hilt, an Umbaran Campaign Hilt, and a Bee D-1 Skin. You can get a look at them in the photo here.
If you pre-order the game for the PlayStation 4, you also get a game-related theme.
If you love customizing the look of your characters, you should think about putting in a pre-order.
