Mortal Kombat 1 reveals have been coming fast and frequent with the game’s release in September, and it looks like the next one will be happening during Gamescom 2023. To be precise, it’s going to be shown during Geoff Keighley’s Opening Night Live pre-Gamescom showcase. That’s when we’ll get to see a new trailer and presumably further new roster or Kameo Fighter reveals as well.

Both Geoff Keighley and NetherRealm Studios confirmed the next Mortal Kombat 1 trailer’s place in Opening Night Live on Twitter. Set to take place on Tuesday, August 22, 2023, at 11 a.m. PT / 2 p.m. ET, Keighley and the Opening Night Live presentation will debut Mortal Kombat 1’s latest trailer. There’s no telling what exactly the trailer will entail, or where it will be slotted in the show, but it looks to be an exciting time for Mortal Kombat 1 fans hoping to see if their favorite character has made it into the game.
