Mortal Kombat 11: Aftermath hotfix released for the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 that addresses Fujin infinite and Raiden Power Discharge Kombo issue

A hotfix has been released for Mortal Kombat 11: Aftermath for the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 versions of the game.

It didn't take long for the community to discover an infinite combo for Fujin. While it could be argued that "he needs it," it seems that NetherRealm Studios has deemed that he, in fact, did not need it — which is probably for the best.

RoboCop has been on NetherRealm Studios' list of characters that they've wanted to add since Mortal Kombat 9

The Mortal Kombat 11: Aftermath update was recently released. Along with Sheeva and Fujin as iconic Mortal Kombat series characters, we also got the surprise addition of RoboCop.

Guest characters have become sort of a tradition in NetherRealm Studios titles since Mortal Kombat 9 back in 2011. As a result, we've seen unique interactions with characters like Kratos (PlayStation exclusive, not DLC), Freddy Krueger, Scorpion (Injustice), Jason Voorhees, the Predator, Leatherface, Alien, Sub-Zero (Injustice 2), Raiden (Injustice 2), Hellboy, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, the Terminator, the Joker, and Spawn.

Fujin has an infinite combo in Mortal Kombat 11: Aftermath

With his high flying movement options and ability to harness the power of the wind to keep foes at bay, we figured Fujin may be a little frustrating to face off against in Mortal Kombat 11: Aftermath. It didn't take the community long, however, to discover that the god of wind also has the ability to perform infinite combos.

MK REO has posted a video showcasing this extremely repetitive sequence as Fujin takes advantage of a stance switch cancel technique.

All 34 characters in Mortal Kombat 11 received a special new ender in the Aftermath update as developers chose to bring back an old favorite finisher: Friendships.

We've highlighted a few of these here on the site already, but Maximilian has posted a video in which he goes through every single one and rates them. We figured this is a great opportunity to show them all off and give you a chance to share which were your favorites.

Mortal Kombat 11: Aftermath review

Mortal Kombat 11: Aftermath has arrived, stepping through a fiery portal from the NetherRealm into our homes — and our hearts. The follow-up expansion to 2019's blockbuster hit introduces new characters into the fold and a new set of story chapters for fans to play through.

With Aftermath, fans can look forward to three new playable DLC characters: RoboCop, Sheeva, and Fujin, as well as five new story chapters all for a price tag of $39.99 USD. It's a fairly steep asking price for such an expansion, but does the content justify the money you'll drop here? Let's get right into it.

'I'd buy that for a dollar' - RoboCop brings with him a ton of wonderful Easter egg references in Mortal Kombat 11: Aftermath

After watching Cheng Teoh's reference roundup video, we're all but convinced NetherRealm Studios must have had a team of developers tasked solely with looking up Easter eggs to include in RoboCop's Mortal Kombat 11 interactions.

The 1980's action star is one of three new additions to MK11 (Sheeva and Fujin being the others) and, like most all of the other high profile guests to grace the game's roster, brings with him an absolute ton of fun callbacks and nods that elevate the experience from good to nostalgically great.

Which characters should be coming to the final season of Street Fighter 5; how good is Mortal Kombat 11: Aftermath so far?

Another chapter for Street Fighter 5: Champion Edition awaits us as Capcom has revealed plans to release no fewer than five additional characters and three additional stages.

While many fans are content with the content in terms of which fighters have made it onto SF5's roster, there are still a handful more that would make a lot of sense to add. We speculate as to who might make the most sense in terms of bringing hype and interest.

Mortal Kombat 11: Aftermath faces variety of technical issues and crashes upon launch with the most troublesome fixed now

Mortal Kombat 11: Aftermath has been in the hands of players for over a day at this point, but there's apparently been quite a few of them who haven't been able to experience all of what the new expansion has to offer yet.

Owners of the latest Mortal Kombat DLC on pretty much every platform have reported issues with game crashes, server connectivity problems and trouble accessing the Towers of Time mode following the new update though NetherRealm Studios, Warner Bros., and QLOC / Shiver appear to be hard at work squashing bugs as we speak.

You'll find combos for Fujin, Sheeva, and RoboCop, new story mode footage, a review, and more in our Mortal Kombat 11: Aftermath roundup

The hype knob has been cranked up beyond "11" as Mortal Kombat 11 has officially been updated to its new Aftermath version. The community is hard at work exploring Aftermath, and we figured we could be something of a hub for new MK content with a roundup.

Even before beginning to search for tech we had a hunch we'd find some pretty stellar combos from Noble Raptor... we weren't at all disappointed. The combo guru has already posted a good handful of sequences for both Fujin and RoboCop, and we can only assume similar beatdowns are on the way for Sheeva.

Batman is the only reason Joker's Friendship isn't just another Fatality in Mortal Kombat 11: Aftermath; see it in full right here

The Mortal Kombat 11 experience just leveled up as the new Aftermath update officially rolled out today, and while there's a metric ton of content to check out one of the very first facets we knew had to see was none other than Joker's Friendship.

The Clown Prince of Crime is a stellar guest addition to the Mortal Kombat universe as MK11's brutal battlefield seems the perfect place for Joker to explore his gruesome potential without limit. The concept of newly-added Friendships (ending sequences that trade gore for goofiness) also resonates with the famous comic book character's nature as a clown who oft toys with his victims.
