Problems for Mortal Kombat 11: according to various newspapers and confirmed by WB Games customer service, the new NetherRealm fighting game is so violent that it has not been admitted in some countries.
It seems to be in particular the case of Indonesia and other unspecified markets, where the game was available for pre-order but shortly before the launch those who made the reservation on the digital stores received an automatic refund. The reason? ” The game is not for sale in your country “, a problem that affects not only digital editions but also retail versions.
At the moment there are no sales bans in Europe and North America, where MK11 is regularly available from today on PC, PS4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch without any kind of censorship or block.
If you made a digital preorder of MK11 through the PlayStation Store, you will receive an automatic refund. We suggest reaching out to them for more information on when to expect this to be processed.

Hello Marcellus! Mortal Kombat 11 will not be released in the Indonesian market to ensure that we are compliant with local laws within that country. Our decision may be further reviewed at a later date.
