Get ready to fight as Warner Bros. reveal Mortal Kombat 11 on Xbox One, PS4, Nintendo Switch and PC!
It’s hard to believe that it is near-on 4 years since the release of Mortal Kombat X, but it is – and that means it’s time for a new battle to commence… that of Mortal Kombat 11 on Xbox One, PS4, Nintendo Switch and PC.
Mortal Kombat 11 is the newest game in the award-winning franchise and the official announcement trailer found below sets the stage for an epic, time bending story, featuring an original music track created in collaboration with multi-platinum selling rapper 21 Savage. The song by 21 Savage featured in the trailer is titled “Immortal” and overlays scenes of an epic battle between two iconic characters, Dark Raiden and Scorpion, with a tease of a new character who is at the center of Mortal Kombat 11’s story.
Once again being developed by award-winning NetherRealm Studios, Mortal Kombat on Xbox One, PS4, Nintendo Switch and PC is scheduled to release beginning 23rd April 2019. Mortal Kombat 11 deepens and personalizes the experience unlike ever before with an all new Custom Character Variation System that gives players the creative control of building customized versions of the character roster. In addition, the game will introduce a new cinematic story that continues the epic saga that is more than 25 years in the making.
“By giving players more creative control, Mortal Kombat 11 is a testament to why this iconic franchise is so strong and increasingly relevant after more than 25 years,” said David Haddad, President, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment. “This game showcases NetherRealm Studios’ extensive talent to innovate and create epic experiences for the Mortal Kombat fans and new players alike.”
“It’s exciting to finally announce Mortal Kombat 11 and showcase what the team has been working on,” said Ed Boon, Creative Director, NetherRealm Studios. “Our Custom Character Variation System opens up an infinite amount of options for players to personalize their favorite fighters. We can’t wait until January when we’ll be showing more of the game.”
It will make its first gameplay debut at Mortal Kombat 11: The Reveal, a highly experiential, community celebration of Mortal Kombat, taking place at 11 a.m. PST on 17 Jan, 2019 in Los Angeles and 7 p.m. GMT in London. Mortal Kombat 11: The Reveal will be livestreamed globally at www.twitch.tv/NetherRealm and will feature a keynote presented by NetherRealm Studios. The event will also include the first opportunity for hands-on with Mortal Kombat 11 gameplay, tournaments and other Mortal Kombat themed activities.
You’ll be able to get hold of Mortal Kombat 11 on Xbox One, PS4, Switch and PC in a couple of different formats too. From 7th December, the Standard Edition will be available from the Xbox Store (or other digital offerings) for £54.99, whilst the Premium Edition will set you back £79.99 to include the base game and the Kombat Pack.
Anyone who pre-orders will receive Shao Kahn as an in-game playable character, whilst also receiving access to the Beta in March 2019.
