Mortal Kombat 11 is coming in 2019 and there’s a lot of new fighters and mechanics to look forward to. Various Mortal Kombat 11 characters have been revealed via leaks and official countdown events. New gameplay mechanics have also been shown, and there’s a lot to look forward to for April 23.
Mortal Kombat 11 Characters
The Mortal Kombat 11 Official Gameplay Reveal event earlier this week showed seven characters that will be in the game.
- Sonya Blade
Alongside the usual suspects, we have a new character, Geras, who has time-controlling moves. It’s also interesting to note that Sonya Blade will be voiced by UFC and WWE Star Ronda Rousey.
A Mortal Kombat 11 leak from a pro MK player rumored to have tested the game also brought up some other playable characters.
- Noob Saibot
- Liu Kang
- Shang Tsung
Fighters like Kung Lao, Kitang, Cassie Cage, Johnny Cage, Kano, Rain, and Jade are also rumored to appear. Whether they will be playable is yet to be seen.
Mortal Kombat 11 Gameplay
The Mortal Kombat 11 Event also gave fans a sneak peek at new gameplay mechanics and how they look in the game.
There’s both an Offensive and Defensive meter which tie to different moves. Players can also use a “Final Blow” move when their health reaches less than 30%.
You also get one “Krushing Blow” per match. These moves work similar to Brutalities and can sometimes trigger an X-Ray animation.
The game also allows you to block and counter moves with the “Perfect Block” mechanic. You can also now do a short hop instead of a jump to avoid certain moves.
These gameplay tweaks will make the game very interesting to play, with many new mechanics to exploit.
Mortal Kombat 11 Release Date
Mortal Kombat 11 has an official release date of April 23, 2019.
The game will be available for PS4, Xbox One, PC, and even the Nintendo Switch.
More information on characters and mechanics will likely come out before the release. Could Mortal Kombat 11 become one of the best fighting game esports?
