Warner Bros and NetherRealm Studios today released a gameplay trailer for the Mortal Kombat 11 Kombat League, an all-new seasonal ranked mode where players can compete against other online Kombatants to earn exclusive in-game rewards.
Kombat League is said to be available tomorrow, June 18th, as a free content update for all Mortal Kombat 11 owners. Now while the publisher claims that the update will be available to everyone, it has not included the PC version in the official trailer. Furthermore, the developers have not confirmed – nor denied – whether Kombat League will be available tomorrow on the PC. These facts raise some yellow flags as the PC version was at launch behind the console version.
In Kombat League, players compete in ranked matches during a four-week season to progress through nine tiers, climbing from the ranks of Apprentice to Elder God. Players will be rewarded with exclusive in-game items for each unlocked rank. Rewards are cumulative, with players earning all unlocked items up to the highest tier achieved in a given season.
Players can also earn in-game items by playing in various daily and seasonal quests. Once a season expires, a new season starts immediately with new rewards and incentives to earn. The optimised matchmaking system in Kombat League will ensure players are matched with opponents at or near their same skill level. As part of the Kombat League update, a new meter has been added giving players a quick look at their odds of winning against an opponent at the beginning of each ranked match.
Let’s hope that Warner Bros and QLOC will make Kombat League available on the PC tomorrow.
