A new Mortal Kombat 11 Ultimate patch is going live today. Players on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S can auto-download the update, which will bring with it character balance changes.

Most notably on this list of patch notes we find that Sheeva's Dragon Drop, a special move that's been causing quite a bit of drama in recent times, has seen nerfs. There have also been a handful of other character changes to fighters such as Cetrion, Joker, and more.

According to the notes, Sheeva will now have a slightly more difficult time landing her stomp attack. She will also see longer recovery on the delayed version of it if it whiffs or clashes with armor.

Additionally, characters such as Joker and Cetrion both saw a decrease in health making them easier to KO.

Guest characters like Rambo and RoboCop were fortunate during this round of changes. Both saw buffs to things like health and recovery for attacks on block.
