On December 6, 2018 at the The Game Awards 2018 event, Ed Boon was slated to introduce the Best Sports/Racing game of the year, when suddenly, this trailer popped up on the screen behind him…
…Immediately, people were not just shocked, they were surprised, they were overrun with intense spine chills that everyone clamored the stage with cheers and happiness. Mortal Kombat is back, baby.
From the trailer, you’re immediately questioning everything… Wait, is that the original Mortal Kombat stage? Wait, who’s this at the end of the trailer? We have two different kinds of Scorpions!? What in the world is going on here? And what’s this? It’s going to be released on April 23rd of 2019!?
Needless to say, everyone was estatic. It announced the global community event has been set for January 17, 2019. That day has come and gone. The game is revealed.
The first thing you notice is that Mortal Kombat 11’s stages are detailed, and has some details in the environments that can be used as a weapon against your opponents. You also have the option of using your own weapon against players.
In addition to the life meter, you have two additional meters on the lower left and/or right corners of the screen. They’re your defense and attack bars. Think of them as supers, but for different mechanics.
Probably one of the biggest announcement to come out of the Community Reveal event, is that despite the leaks, rumors, and speculation – Ronda Rousey is revealed as a guest actress in the game. Ronda Rousey voices Sonya Blade. She’s been a big fan of Mortal Kombat since the first Mortal Kombat, and her favorite character is Sonya Blade…
Pre-Order the game today, and you’ll get Shao Khan. You’ll also get access to the MK11 Beta. The Mortal Kombat 11 Beta begins March 28th. Mortal Kombat 11 arrives to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC on April 23, 2019.
