Stay tuned for another update tomorrow. The creators of Mortal Kombat 11 are organizing a panel at the Chicago Comic & Entertainment Expo where they plan to announce two other characters! We will keep you informed as soon as we have information!
The list of MK11 up to now
Mortal Kombat is a series of fights featuring the iconic duo of fighters that many of us know: Sub-Zero and Scorpion, as well as others like Raiden, Sonya Blade, etc. In MK11, you will find many faces of previous Mortal Kombat games, even those that have only been featured in Mortal Kombat X, the latest Mortal Kombat game.
Two new characters will also be introduced in MK11: Geras and Kronika.
Geras is a playable fighter with time control abilities. He can stop and go back as he pleases. Other attacks include summoning stone and sand objects and teleporting with this power to trap enemies.
It turns out that Geras is fighting in the service of Kronika, the other new character. Apparently, Kronika has been directing the show since Mortal Kombat's first game, but she is finally showing up because of the events in Mortal Kombat X. It's still not clear if Kronika is a playable fighter, but she's the first big villain in the game .
At present, MK11 will have an initial list of 25 playable characters. There is also Shao Kahn, who is a character that we can only get by pre-ordering the game.
In recent updates, we also learned that Noob Saibot would return as a playable character alongside Shang Tsung, who would be the first character of downloadable content!
History and synopsis
The story of MK11 is a little complicated because of the trip back in time. We all know how time travel affects just about everything, right?
MK11 is not a direct sequel to MKX, even though it was the previous game. Instead, MK11 takes place after the events of MK9, because Kronika has used his time and ability to actually bend to screw things up, as is done. But the events that occur in MKX are still topical.
Shinnok, the main villain of MKX, is being tortured by a nasty Raiden, corrupted by black magic after absorbing the Jinsei, which is the life force of Earthrealm. Raiden decapitates Shinnok but keeps him alive. Kronika appears and approaches Shinnok, then reveals that everything is going according to his own plans.
NetherRealm introduces some changes in combat gameplay mechanics. Instead of having only one meter for movements like circuit breaker, X-ray movements and improved attacks, there are now two meters in the lower right and left corners. The horizontal bar is reserved for offensive movements, the vertical to the defense.
Fatal hits replace X-ray movements. Fatal hits are only accessible when the player's health is less than 30%. With a fatal blow, you can trigger an ugly combo on your opponent by simultaneously pressing two shoulder buttons. The fatal blow can only be used once per game (no round), so you must be wise with the timing. However, if the fatal blow does not connect, the movement will go into a long cooldown before you can try again.
Crushing blows are also added, which is a graphic shot similar to X-ray attacks. These are triggered by the respect of certain criteria, such as the same movement three times in a row. Each character has about five to six moves that can evolve into a fatal blow, inflicting mindless damage and can put enemies in the air or get them up immediately.
Finally, Flawless Block is added. When you make a perfectly timed block, you get a brief window for a counterattack.
These new gaming mechanisms offer many new possibilities, including interesting, high-risk, and rewarding games.
MK11 now has a focus on customization, similar to NetherRealm's Injustice games. There will be costume pieces for each character, which you can complete with items that give your character better abilities.
Another aspect that you can customize to your liking is the "Kosmetics", which includes elements such as the skin of the character, cinematic intros, victory screens, fatalities, brutalities, taunts, etc. Even opponents controlled by the computer can be tinkered at your leisure because the behavior of the AI is also customizable. MK11 does not skimp on the customization options for you.
When, what consoles and how much
Mortal Kombat 11 will be available on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Windows PC and Xbox One on April 23. The standard edition of the game will cost $ 60.
There is also a Premium Edition for $ 100. This includes some interesting bonuses:
- Digital download code for the base game

The "Kollector & # 39; s Edition" is reserved for PS4 and Xbox One players and costs $ 300. It includes everything in the Premium Edition, as well as a magnet with the Dragon logo and a Scorpion mask on the 1: 1 scale.
