Mortal Kombat 11 will be revealed tomorrow, launch scheduled for late April
The Mortal Kombat franchise has a long history that can be traced way back to 1992 when Midway Games Chicago created the eponymous horror-fantasy fighting game after dropping the idea to make a video game starring Jean-Claude Van Damme. The original title was succeeded by multiple sequels and spin-offs, including films, television series, and a card game.
Mortal Kombat 11 arrives as the sequel to Mortal Kombat X, which was released in 2015. The announcement trailer for the game was unveiled in early December during The Game Awards 2018. Tomorrow, a global community reveal event will take place in London and Las Vegas, and the game beta phase will start in March. Finally, the full launch is scheduled for April 23, 2019.
Those interested can already pre-order the game at a price that depends on edition and market. For example, the regular Mortal Kombat 11 release has a price tag of US$59.99, but the Premium edition goes for US$99.99. The extras provided by this special edition include a steel case and a Kombat pack (free access to additional fighters that would be added as DLCs in the future).
Tomorrow's event will be streamed live on Twitch at twitch.tw/netherrealm (Las Vegas) and twitch.tw/wbgameslive (London). Until then — if you missed it so far — feel free to enjoy the official trailer below. Will you pre-order Mortal Kombat 11 or not?
