Mortal Kombat 11 announced

Mortal Kombat 11 has been announced at The Game Awards 2018. As a quick warning, this might be the most brutal looking Mortal Kombat game yet. The amount of gore makes it NSFW.

The game is slated for a global release of April 23, 2019. There will be a community reveal event on January 17th.

During the trailer, we see Dark Raiden — who originally appeared in this corrupted form during the events of Mortal Kombat Deception and at the conclusion of Mortal Kombat X — facing off against Scorpion — who might still be in his human form as a result of the events of Mortal Kombat X. While Raiden initially appears to win, Scorpion comes back as a specter to finish the fight.

Afterwards, we see a figure that we don't really recognize. This character is very likely a newcomer to the series.

Pre-orders are now available. By pre-ordering the game, you'll be able to gain access to Shao Kahn as a bonus character — the final boss of Mortal Kombat 9 who has been absent ever since that game's events. Beta access will also be provided.

Mortal Kombat 11 is coming to the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and the PC. The ESRB rating is still currently pending.

Mortal Kombat 11's new feature this time appears to be its "custom character variation" system. In Mortal Kombat X, there were essentially three unique variations of characters that enacted different play styles.

The customizable options might be something similar to Injustice 2's Gear system. Essentially, the game works kind of like an RPG where characters can have their stats and abilities adjusted through the usage of equippable gear.

No actual gameplay has been shown yet.
