The trailer at least partially matches up with a recent Reddit leak though, which predicted the game would be shown at The Game Awards and that it features a plot involving time travel. Will Mortal Kombat 11 be skipping Steam like so numerous other announcements from The Game Awards tonight?
The promo for Mortal Kombat 11 is out and the gaming world is going insane.
Mortal Kombat 11 has finally been revealed at The Game Awards 2018. The trailer also included a release date for Mortal Kombat 11, and it's not far off. "And featuring a roster of new and returning Klassic Fighters, Mortal Kombat's best in class cinematic story mode continues the epic saga over 25 years in the making". If you haven't heard of it, that's because it's an original, as announced on the official Mortal Kombat Twitter account. Weirdly, another Scorpion appeared to finish the fight - perhaps eluding to the new "custom variation" system that the game will be employing.
Mortal Kombat 11 is a follow-up of 2015's Mortal Kombat X and is to release on Nintendo Switch, Playstation 4, Windows PC and Xbox One in early 2019. Fans who want to get their hands on beta access, and Shao Kahn as a playable character, need to drop a pre-order.
Boasting a new graphics engine, MK11 promises to showcase "every skull-shattering, eye-popping moment" and bring you "so close to the fight you can feel it".
