Warner Bros has released the official launch trailer for Mortal Kombat 11. Now what is really great here is that NetherRealm Studios has used a remake of the classic MK theme, thus automatically elevating this trailer to… wait for it… 11.
In the trailer, Kronika, the Keeper of Time, has signaled for a new era to begin as she tries to rewind time to its beginning and restart history. In order to restore balance to the realms, players must take on the role of numerous fighters from different eras, culminating in the ultimate generational clash as current characters collide with their past selves.
The launch trailer features both cinematic story moments coupled with crushing gameplay showcasing the growing roster of confirmed playable fighters in Mortal Kombat 11, including Scorpion, Raiden, Sub-Zero, Sonya Blade, Skarlet, Baraka, Geras, Kano, D’Vorah, Kabal, Jade, Johnny Cage, Cassie Cage, Erron Black, Jacqui Briggs, Kotal Kahn, Noob Saibot, Liu Kang, Kung Lao, Jax Briggs, Cetrion, The Kollector, Kitana and Shao Kahn.
Mortal Kombat 11 will be using a custom version of Unreal Engine 3, will be using the Denuvo anti-tamper tech, will require always-online connection for some modes – like the Krypt and Towers of Time – to work, and is currently scheduled for an April 23rd release.
