Kollector’s version: Let’s jump to the next and also the most expensive one, Kollector’s edition. You have to spend $300 to avail this version and it comes with Steelcase and magnet, Kollector box, and a Scorpion Mask. I would recommend you to go for the standard and premium version as it is not a good idea to invest too much in a game.
Mortal Kombat 11 hooks you up with the previous editions of the game but you will get disappointed if you are looking for a whole fresh look. But that doesn’t mean that you will not get entertained with this version. In fact, the game comes with new upgrades and new controls to keep you engaging. 23 old ones and some new characters are ready to entertain you so don’t think too much and buy the game.
