- Franchise-First Story Expansion Continues the Epic Saga with New Playable Characters – Fujin, Sheeva and Guest Fighter, RoboCop
- Fan-Favourite Stage Fatalities, Klassic Arenas and Friendships Return in Free Content Update for All Mortal Kombat 11 Players
Mortal Kombat™ 11: Aftermath has been announced today.
The Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment title is a new expansion for the hit video game that was the best-selling title in franchise history and was named Fighting Game of the Year at the 2019 D.I.C.E. Awards.
The epic saga continues as Fire God Liu Kang, the new keeper of time and protector of Earthrealm, must now enlist the help of unlikely allies and familiar foes to forge a new history as the fate of two worlds hang in the balance.
Adding to the growing roster of playable fighters, the new expansion features the triumphant return of Fujin, the God of Wind who serves as Earthrealm’s protector alongside his brother Raiden, and Sheeva, the four-armed, half-human and half-dragon queen of the ancient Shokan race.
RoboCop, the iconic, highly advanced cybernetic police officer will make his first appearance in the franchise, continuing the pedigree of popular Mortal Kombat guest fighters.
Actor Peter Weller returns as the voice and likeness of the popular character that he played in both the original “RoboCop” (1987) film and “RoboCop 2” (1990) sequel.
Set for a global release on digital first on 26 May (from 4pm BST in the UK and Ireland) and developed by award-winning NetherRealm Studios, Mortal Kombat 11: Aftermath expands the critically acclaimed story campaign with an all-new, cinematic narrative centred around trust and deceit.
The Mortal Kombat 11: Aftermath expansion will be available on PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system, PlayStation®4 Pro computer entertainment system, the Xbox One family of devices including Xbox One X, Nintendo Switch™ system, PC and Stadia.*
Additionally, all Mortal Kombat 11 owners will have access to new Stages, including the return of the Klassic Dead Pool and Soul Chamber arenas, accompanied by Stage Fatalities, the fan-favourite finishing moves that use the environment to destroy opponents, and the popular Friendships feature from the ‘90s, which allows players to take down their adversaries with a hint of kindness.
These features will be available as a free content update in conjunction with the Mortal Kombat 11: Aftermath release.
All preorders will receive the Eternal Klash Skin Pack at launch, featuring three new character skin variants – “Unbound Rage” Scorpion inspired by Mortal Kombat (2011), “Son of Arctika” Sub-Zero inspired by Mortal Kombat: Deception and “Kori Power” Frost, a Klassic version of the Lin Kuei warrior.
“Our fans have really enjoyed the story campaign in Mortal Kombat, and we’re happy to continue the narrative and add new characters to the roster with Mortal Kombat 11: Aftermath,” said Ed Boon, Creative Director, NetherRealm Studios.
“In addition, Friendships and Stage Fatalities are being added as part of the free content update for all Mortal Kombat 11 players.
