Publisher Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and developer NetherRealm Studios have released the launch trailer today for Mortal Kombat 11: Aftermath.
The new expansion for their hit fighting game will launch next week on May 26. It is priced at $39.99 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC. There will also be a retail release in June that includes the base game, Aftermath expansion, and Kombat Pack 1 all for $59.99.
Mortal Kombat 11: Aftermath expands the critically acclaimed Story mode with an all-new, action-packed campaign centered around trust and deceit. In the launch trailer, the story picks up directly where Mortal Kombat 11 left off as Fire God Liu Kang, the new keeper of time and protector of Earthrealm, is ready to activate Kronika’s Hourglass and restart history. But, now that Kronika’s Crown has been destroyed, he is forced to team up with the most unlikely of allies in the villainous Shang Tsung. The soul-stealing sorcerer, along with Fujin and Nightwolf, must now embark on a time-bending adventure into the past to recover the Crown as the fate of two worlds hang in the balance.
The entire Mortal Kombat 11: Aftermath expansion will be available digitally beginning May 26, including the addition of new playable fighters—Fujin, Sheeva, and RoboCop. The trailer showcases 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 highly advanced cybernetic police officer, makes his franchise debut and features the voice and likeness of actor Peter Weller, who portrayed the popular character in both the original RoboCop (1987) film and RoboCop 2 (1990) sequel.
Additionally, all Mortal Kombat 11 owners will have access to new Stages, including the new Dead Pool, Soul Chamber, RetroKade, and Kronika’s Keep arenas, accompanied by Stage Fatalities, the fan-favorite finishing moves that use the environment to destroy opponents, and the popular Friendships feature from the ‘90s, allowing players to take down their adversaries with a hint of kindness. These features will be available on May 26 as a FREE content update in conjunction with the Mortal Kombat 11: Aftermath release.
