Fix Early Access Not Working Mortal Kombat 1

Before we jump to any potential solutions for the “Mortal Kombat 1 Early Access Not Working” issue, let’s first see when is Mortal Kombat 1 Early Access set to kick off. MK1 early access is set to start on September 14th, at 7 pm CEST / 6 pm BST / 1 pm EDT / 10 am PDT. Of course, that means that the game will not be available prior to that time. However, the time is right, and you still can not start Mortal Kombat 1 early access? In most cases, the problem is solved by simply restarting your console or Steam, if you play on the PC. However, in some cases, you’ll have to power-cycle your console. This is important, as it will clear your console cache. Hence, here’s what you need to do:

  1. Turn off your console completely.
  2. Unplug the cable from the wall.
  3. Leave the console unplugged for 2 to 5 minutes.
  4. Plug it back, and turn the console back on.

The process is exactly the same on both PlayStation and Xbox consoles. If you are having the “Mortal Kombat 1 Early Access Not Working” issue on PC, restarting Steam (and if needed – the PC), should fix the issue. If you have bought a physical copy of the game, make sure that there are not any additional codes which you need to activate it in order to get early access. Finally, if none of these solutions help, contact Mortal Kombat Games Support and explain your issue.

    My problem is not the early access. I have that. My problem that I preordered the premium edition but it’s only giving me standard.

    Same here. Frustrating that MK1 charges what they do and we don’t get what we paid for.
