Mortal Kombat: Aftermath will forge (another) new future
May 21, 20201 min read
NetherRealm Studios, currently on a promotional drive for upcoming DLC Mortal Kombat 11: Aftermath, has released a new launch trailer, which includes a selection of scenes taken from the new story expansion, available on all platforms May 26.
Informing the viewer that "No-one can be trusted", and backed by more completely ill-fitting hop-hop, the cinematic video gives us a look at Aftermath's five-chapter story mode, in which treacherous shape-shifter Shang Tsung forms an uneasy alliance with Earthrealm heroes in order to prevent the time-spinning machinations of antagonist Kronika.
A party comprised of Mr. Tsung, Kitana, Sindel, Sheeva, Fujin and others certainly sounds like an friendship on thin ice, and no doubt there's trouble a-brewin' and ulterior motives at play. Frankly, I think the trailer reveals a little too much, and should probably be avoided entirely by those who wish to go into the new chapters "dark".
