Mortal Kombat 11 is super popular, but there's bound to be people out there that haven't tried it. If you own a PS4 or Xbox One and are looking to get into NetherRealm's super gory latest entry, be sure to check out the free trial being hosted this weekend. Running from October 11 to 14, players will be able to download a trial version of MK11 that includes a pretty decent portion of the content on offer.
You'll have access to the first two chapters of the game's campaign mode, the entire base roster of characters and all of their variations, and a preview of Kombat Pack characters Nightwolf, Shang Tsung, and The Terminator in the "Towers of Time" mode. All progress made in the trial will carry over to the full version whenever you choose to buy it. The game will also be 40% off on both platforms as the trial is running.
While PlayStation Plus/Xbox Live Gold will be required for online play, you won't need either service to sample the trial. That's a pretty decent incentive, especially if you just want to get some friends over for a gory weekend of fisticuffs.
