Mortal Kombat 11 is on the verge of yet another major update as it will evolve into Mortal Kombat 11 Ultimate this coming Tuesday.

The next generation is officially here as both Microsoft's Xbox Series X and Sony's PlayStation 5 have officially hit shelves, and while the natural inclination is to consider what kinds of new and exciting next-gen games will be available for us, many players are arguably more interested in seeing how the titles they already own work on the upgraded hardware.
