A new chapter in the Mortal Kombat series is finally upon us.
Mortal Kombat 11 arrives this week, and it’s about time we spent a few minutes reading reviews. Mortal Kombat 11 is a direct sequel to the story set up by MK9, and 10, with a few twists.
The game introduces Kronika, a new character who is said to have been the perpetrator of various events throughout series history. She’s able to manipulate time itself, which plays a major role in the game’s story. Frequently, classic MK character will be meeting their future and past selves.
Many well-known characters are returning, including a few of those introduced in the last game such as Cassie Cage, and Jacqui Briggs, and Mortal Kombat 11 introduces a few new faces of its own as well.
On the gameplay front, the game features an updated version of Injustice 2’s character customisation. You’re able to select specific moves and essentially create your own Sub-Zero or Scorpion, not to mention pick their intro cinematic, and gear.
Check out all confirmed characters in our roster page to see who made the cut.
