Fans can finally get their hands on “Mortal Kombat 11,” the latest entry in the award-winning franchise from NetherRealm Studios. The game launches this week for PC, PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch, and follows the events of “Mortal Kombat X.”

The new game introduces a time-bending narrative bringing together iconic characters from different Mortal Kombat eras, along with various franchise-first fighters. “Mortal Kombat 11” also debuts the innovative Custom Character Variation System, which offers nearly infinite customization options for players.
“After more than 25 years, the Mortal Kombat franchise has never been more relevant and continues to get stronger, thanks to the talented team at NetherRealm Studios and the passionate community,” said David Haddad, President, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment. “With today’s launch of Mortal Kombat 11, the NetherRealm team has created the most personalized Mortal Kombat experience yet, coupled with best-in-class gameplay, iconic characters and an immersive, cinematic story that is sure to excite both fans and new players.”

In Mortal Kombat 11, the story continues as Raiden’s defeat of the evil Elder God Shinnok has drawn the ire of Kronika, the Keeper of Time, and upset her desired balance between good and evil. To restore stability in the realms, Kronika has only one option – rewind time to its beginning and restart history. Through the story mode, players take on the role of various fighters from past and present Mortal Kombat eras, who must join forces to defeat Shao Khan’s Outworld armies and solve the temporal crisis at stake.
“Mortal Kombat 11” offers new and returning fighters with unique abilities and Fatalities. UFC champion, Olympic medalist and WWE superstar Ronda Rousey takes on the role of Sonya Blade, alongside multiple fan-favorite characters, including Scorpion, Raiden, Sub-Zero, Liu Kang, Kung Lao, Johnny Cage, Cassie Cage, Jax Briggs, Jacqui Briggs, Kitana, Skarlet, Baraka, Kano, D’Vorah, Kabal, Jade, Erron Black, Kotal Kahn, Noob Saibot, Frost and Shao Kahn. They are joined by a variety of franchise-first fighters such as Geras, a powerful servant of Kronika who can manipulate time; Cetrion, the Elder Goddess of Virtue and Guardian of Life; and The Kollector, a corrupt enforcer and loyal associate of Shao Kahn.
The new Mortal Kombat game offers multiple modes for all players, including the Towers of Time, which builds upon NetherRealm’s past gameplay experiences and allows players to test their skills through various challenges, providing more ways than ever to continue the fight. The Krypt also makes a return as part of Shang Tsung’s mysterious island, allowing players to explore and interact with the environment in new ways, while unlocking rewards that can be used in other modes of the game.
