Mortal Kombat 11 has launched today on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PC (Steam). It’s developed by NetherRealm Studios and published by Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment. And most definitely rated M for Mature. Watch the fist-pumping trailer above.
“The entire team at NetherRealm Studios has been hard at work on Mortal Kombat 11, and we’re excited to see players around the world finally get their hands on the game,” said Ed Boon, Creative Director, NetherRealm Studios. “Mortal Kombat 11 introduces more ways to customize your favorite fighters than ever before, new gameplay modes, franchise-first characters and of course our time-bending new story that both fans and new players will enjoy.”
Mortal Kombat 11 builds upon the Mortal Kombat reboot in 2011 (also known as Mortal Kombat 9) and 2015’s Mortal Kombat X, including a cinematic single player story mode that picks up where MKX left off. Raiden ‘s forces have defeated the Elder God Shinnok, but drawn the ire of Kronika, the Keeper of Time, and the series’ first female boss character.
Konika uses her time powers to restart history. Players take on the roles of various fighters throughout past and present Mortal Kombat timelines to defeat Shao Khan’s Outworld forces.
Mortal Kombat 11 features a large roster of 25 playable characters, including three newcomers. Cetrion is Shinnok’s sister and Kronika’s daughter, a powerful Elder Goddess who commands the elements. Geras is a construct of Kronika with powers over time and sand. Kollector is a six-armed warrior who battles for Outworld.
In addition to the story mode and online and local multiplayer, Mortal Kombat 11 also sees the return of the Towers of Time and The Krypt, where players can unlock rewards and test new challenges.
Mortal Kombat 11 is available now in a Standard Edition as well as a Premium Edition ($99.99) which includes the Kombat Pack. The Kombat Pack is basically a season pass for future DLC fighters. Mega MK fans can look for the $299.99 Kollector’s Edition, available exclusively at GameStop. Includes a bust of Scorpion.
