Following on from the exciting reveal at The Game Awards last weekend, new details and screens have emerged for NetherRealm's next entry into the head-splitting Mortal Kombat series.
Mortal Kombat 11 will be headed to PS4, Xbox One, PC and Nintendo Switch on April 23, 2019, with a beta planned for March. The weirdly-scored, but action-packed trailer we saw last week is supposed to be very indicative of gameplay mechanics. This suggests destructible background elements, alongside your opponent's bone structure. A community event, which will give us gameplay footage and, hopefully, kharacter konfirmations, is planned for January 17.
We also know that the game features former Outworld Emperor Shao Kahn as a pre-order bonus character. Speaking of piecemeal rosters, a Kombat Pass has been confirmed for MK 11, with a "Premium Edition" of this latest blood-soaked outing being made available for just shy of 100 bucks.
A recent listing on Italy's GameStop page suggests that the Kombat Pass features six characters and six "Battle Passes". The same page also notes that MK 11 will feature a heavy emphasis on its multiplayer/eSports scene, along with a new customisation system and new "GoreTech" mechanics, as if things could get any more violent.
