Warner Bros in collaboration with NetherRealm Studios have unveiled the new addition to the Mortal Kombat fighting games series. This was done on Wednesday.
Meanwhile, Mortal Kombat 11: Aftermath will be be released on May 26 across digital platforms.
According to the developers, Mortal Kombat 11 is adding to the Mortal Kombat story that began initially in 1992, and there will be an expansion that will involve bringing in a few playable characters to the roster from Mortal Kombat 11. Recall that the Mortal Kombat 11 came out last April.
For instance, Raiden’s brother Fujin and Shokan queen Sheeva will be playable characters, with RoboCop coming into the fray as a playable guest character.
Warner Bros has also revealed that Peter Weller, who voiced the character of RoboCop in the original RoboCop film in 1987 will do the voicing here as well.
Other players RoboCop will be joining as playable guest characters already active in MK11, include Terminator T-800, Spawn, and The Joker. It could be recalled that The Joker is already playing a major role in NetherRealms’ other fighting game, Injustice.
Apart from having new characters, players will be given access to new stages, which includes Klassic Dead Pool and Soul Chamber.
Another unique feature of the game which might look absurd to some MK11 lovers is the option for the execution of “Friendships” at the end of matches.
This could be hilarious as it is in contrast to the often gruesome “Fatalities” feature players usually perform after winning.
Happy to continue with the narrative and add new characters to the roster of MK11, NetherRealm Studios creative director Ed Boon noted that MK11 fans had enjoyed the story campaign in the game.
Speaking further, he said the Friendships and Stage Fatalities are some of the free content updates for all Mortal Kombat 11 players, adding that they are fan-favourite features.
