Developed by NetherRealm Studios, Mortal Kombat 11 will be making use of a new graphics engine “showcasing every skull-shattering, eye-popping moment” and will bring players “so close to the fight you can feel it”. The game will also include brand new custom character variations to allow players to tailor their fighter and make them their own.
The announcement trailer, which focused on a cinematic battle between Raiden and Scorpion, also revealed that game would be receiving a closed beta in March 2019. Unfortunately, while beta access is a tempting pre-order bonus, access will only be available on PS4 and Xbox One. Leaving Switch and PC owners left waiting until launch day.
