While presenting the award for Best Sports/Racing Game at last night’s Game Awards ceremony, Ed Boon also introduced the first trailer for Mortal Kombat 11, the latest installment in the successful fighting franchise. Boon’s company NetherRealm Studios will once again be handling development, with Warner Bros set to publish the game on April 23, 2019. That’s just five months away, so we don’t have long to wait before we can unleash brutal Fatalities on our foes.
Mortal Kombat 11 will be availalbe on PS4, Xbox One, PC, and Switch, and those who pre-order will have access to Shao Kahn as a playable character. No gameplay footage was shown in the trailer, although we do know that the game will feature both a new graphics engine and a custom character variation system. The cinematic story mode will also be making a comeback, so we can look forward to some epic storytelling alongside the pools of gore. And whilst the full roster of fighters has yet to be revealed, the trailer’s description promised it will feature ‘new and returning Klassic Fighters’, meaning that all our favorites should be coming back.
If you’d like to get in on the blood-drenched action, Mortal Kombat 11 is now availalbe to pre-order in both standard and premium editions. And if you were wondering, the song featured in the trailer below is ‘Immortal’ by the rapper 21 Savage.
