NetherReal and WB Interactive Entertainment have revealed the brand new story trailer for the upcoming Mortal Kombat 11, giving us a glimpse at the ‘time-bending’ narrative that we’ll be playing through at the end of the month when the game lands on Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, PS4 and PC.
The sypnosis? Well, Raiden after defeating the evil Elder God, Shinnok has made some people mad, including Kronika and has upset the balance between good and evil, the fool. Obviously, the only way out of this is to just rewind time and start history all over again. Obvs.
The game is going to stretch across the history of the series as players control characters of the past and present characters, joining forces to take on Shao Khan’s Outworld armies and save the whole freakin’ universe. Or something.
The trailer is slick as hell, and showcases a smorgasbord of classic and brand new characters. It’s also really freakin’ gory. Because Mortal Kombat.
There was also a reveal of three new playable characters;
Cassie Cage, the commander of an elite Special Forces unit and daughter of the iconic duo, Sonya Blade and Johnny Cage, employs her lethal fighting skills to win every battle, with a relentless drive to measure up to her parents’ legacy. Additional gameplay featuring Cassie Cage will be showcased today, 6th March, at 9:00pm GMT, during this week’s Kombat Kast on the NetherRealm Twitch channel.
Jacqui Briggs, a competitive fighter trained in kickboxing and martial arts, follows in the footsteps of her father, Jax Briggs, as a member of the Special Forces. She believes her duty is to protect Earthrealm and her family, no matter the risk.
Erron Black is a thrill-seeking outlaw hooked on the adrenaline of chasing his own pursuits. Black is a skilled crack shot selling his services to the highest bidder while dressed in classic western Outworld attire.
Mortal Kombat 11 is released on April 23rd. Pre-order to get shiny beta access.
