Mortal Kombat 11: Aftermath is an expansion to the base game and as such comes with new content. New content means new characters with Fujin, Sheeva and Robocop entering the fray. A new trailer dropped showing off gameplay of the characters, but also some of the extra content in the game.
The trailer, which you can watch above, features gameplay for the new characters but also shows off some of the Stage Fatalities. In the video, we see Stage Fatalities for the Deadpool, Soul Chamber, Kronika’s Keep and RetroKade stages. These are planned to come as part of a free update after release.
There is also a Mortal Kombat 11: Aftermath Kollection, but rather annoyingly this releases in June for the US only. This collection gives you Mortal Kombat 11, Aftermath and the Kombat Pack. Retailing at $60, digital preorders grant access to Mortal Kombat 11 and the Kombat Pack immediately.
Those of you who Own Mortal Kombat 11 already can opt to preorder Aftermath solo (RRP $40) or Aftermath and the Kombat Pack (RRP $50). The expansion promises a story expansion (the first for this franchise), the previously mentioned characters, a skin for Johnny Cage (the Thanks A Million skin), as well as three packs of three skins (to be released over time).
Those who preorder also receive the Eternal Klash Skin Pack. This features 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.
Will you be grabbing Mortal Kombat 11: Aftermath? $40 translates to £32 here in the UK and depending on how big this story expansion is that honestly seems worth it. the question is how many people play Mortal Kombat for its story? My guess is not many, but let me know in the comments if I’m wrong. Or tweet us @games_bulletin!
Want to know more about the three new characters in Mortal Kombat 11: Aftermath? Read below to see more!
Fujin is the God of Wind and serves the Elder Gods alongside his brother, Raiden, as a Protector of Earthrealm. First playable in Mortal Kombat 4, he’s adept at inspiring goodness and heroism to conquer the forces of hatred and tyranny and fights to ensure Earthrealm’s bright future. The immortal Fujin uses his sword and crossbow in combat and unleashes his powers as a God through a variety of wind-manipulating attacks to control his weapons, his movements and even his adversaries.
Sheeva is the four-armed, half-human, half-dragon queen of Outworld’s ancient Shokan race. First playable in Mortal Kombat 3, the powerful Shokan warrior leads her people in the quest to attain their rightful place as partners in Outworld’s rule. The male Shokan once scoffed when Sheeva entered the contest to become their next leader, but after a resounding victory, she proved herself to be superior and was crowned the first queen of the Shokan. The heavy hitting, master brawler employs her grappling fighting style to take down enemies and uses her faithful shield and unblockable teleport stomp to strike fear into the hearts of anyone who might oppose her.
RoboCop, formerly known as Alex Murphy, was a dutiful police officer who was brutally executed by a local gang. Brought back to life through OCP technology, Murphy was transformed into RoboCop, a highly advanced cybernetic police officer designed to uphold the law and protect the innocent. Now making his debut in the Mortal Kombat franchise, RoboCop has received a few upgrades and enters into battles equipped with a deadly arsenal of weapons, including his Auto 9 pistol. He also employs a flamethrower, riot shield and shoulder cannon that he can load with various types of ammunition to apprehend any Kombatants who stand in his way. RoboCop in Mortal Kombat 11: Aftermath 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.
