Mortal Kombat 11 got an official trailer and release date yesterday, and it seemingly came out of nowhere. There’s been a ton of rumblings about the next chapter in the popular fight franchise, and now fans have more to go on. The trailer features Raiden and Scorpion having one of the goriest, most brutal fights I’ve seen. It’s this type of chaos and mayhem that’s made the franchise popular to begin with, and it’s good to see (at least from the trailer) that will go unchanged.
Outside of the initial trailer, main details . about the game are pretty scarce, but the trailer alone was enough to get me hyped about it. While the game will hit shelves and digital downloads on April 23rd, there will be a community reveal on January 17th. That’s when WB Games and Nether Realm Studios will discuss all the juicy details around the next Mortal Kombat.
If you’re excited about the game, we have great news for you. You can actually preorder Mortal Kombat 11 beginning today, and if you do that, you’ll get access to a couple really sweet bonuses. The first of which is the unlock code for Shao Kahn as a playable character. The second is access to the beta, which will allow you to get in and start crushing skulls before anyone else.
