Well, this is absolutely stupid – but not especially surprising! Scalpers are attempting to flog access to Mortal Kombat 1’s ongoing Online Stress Test for prices ranging anywhere up to $1,000 on eBay. That’s several times the price of the full game, by the way, for a beta which is scheduled to run through 26th June, 2023.
A quick look on the popular auction site reveals a variety of listings for the multiplayer test, some of which have multiple bids on them – although it’s impossible to know whether they’re legitimate bidders, or just fans trying to disrupt the obvious scalping taking place.
The most worrying part about all this is that developer NetherRealm Studios has already confirmed the game will be getting another beta in August, and everyone will be guaranteed access to that as long as they pre-order the game.
