If you've been living under a rock in terms of Mortal Kombat news, this is the eleventh core entry in the series and a sequel to 2015's Mortal Combat X. We first caught a glimpse of the game thanks to an announcement trailer that aired during The Game Awards 2018, complete with a new rap title track from 21 Savage called "Immortal."

We don't have a lot of details surrounding Mortal Kombat 11 just yet, but we have seen a sneak peek at the box art, featuring Scorpion and some very yellow decor. It's a very cool image that's a lot different from anything the series has seen before, so it's going to be very interesting to see what the actual game has to offer. Awesome kills, which we already know, but what else?

Are you looking forward to seeing what Mortal Kombat 11 has to offer? Let us know what you can't wait to see, and we'll do our best to bring you the best coverage possible. Fatality!

      The fatalities are again excessive.

      Maybe I'm old, but it's kinda too much for my taste.

        Fatalities always have and always will need to have a shock value. That's what put Mortal Kombat on the video game map sooo many years ago.

        they are over the top but eventually if you play enough you get tired of them and just dont use them like the Xray ability.

        If they aren't excessive, they're a failure. Excessive is the point, old man.

      [ thoughts ] Game looks incredible in general, those backgrounds, new graphics, the new lighting, new X-Rays, smooth gameplay + transitions, pretty much everything blows my mind! \m/ :) feels good Man!

      Some other thoughts:

      - kills MKX first impressions
      - IJ2 gear system is going to own
      - seems like the blood doesn't stay on the floor too long? If so I wish they would change that
      - the new time manipulation black dude looks incredible what a rad new character, has a Tremor + Jax vibe but way cooler, love him!
      - in general what is up with the close ups to the female characters faces(Sony + Scarlet)? They look bad/off/creepy/not cute, and just awkward? :( Scarlet in MK9 was crazy cute
      - Scarlet looks really dope the blood moves own and are really rad. Just wish she had a different face it looks really off and sort of creepy
      - Sonya looks dope but again they butchered her face, Ronda Rousey looked amazing on the stage today but her in game character's face looks off, nothing like her in real life and looks creepy in a bad way :(
      - the new backgrounds look incredible! LOL and I thought MKX's backgrounds look incredible. Damn that detail puts any 3D fighter to shame, there is no contest I wish they took over the KI IP.
      - fatalities look incredible super detailed and multi stage, they own.
      - Story looks real solid and very high quality, love it.
      - Scorpion, Barraka, Raiden all look on point and own.
      - Character select screen looks small, hmmm I hope it can expand then again I guess quality over quantity and alt copies is good for me, so I can live with that.
      - Gameplay looks fast, smooth and like butter very nice!

      So yeah other than some small beefs and thoughts and the questionable blood staying on the floor it looks insane! I am MEGA happy + hyped! \m/ Let's GO! I wish it was April :)

      Almost a Flawless Victory!

          I like that PR strategy. Announce close and slowly reveal everything. I also like how they usually show the fatalities as well. They might as well get the clicks

            yep I am excited about pretty much everything I saw and like their strategy

          Ok... I re looked at the character select screen and it has 25 slots!!! I think we are good hahahaha. I thought there was only 10 slots no idea why I saw that, wonder what I was smoking this morning LOL :)

            January 17, 2019 12:32 PM

            Oh wow... I guess just the way it's organized makes it seem smaller. I thought it was maybe like 15 or so :/

        About the Sonya thing... I was thinking that since Ed Boon mentioned older and younger versions meeting that maybe she's "old" Sonya and that's why she's... uh... old looking ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
        I noticed the blood not sticking to the floor either, hopefully it does in the final build.
        As for the smaller character select I'm kind of all for that. A lot of the characters in MKX I didn't like for a variety of reasons, so if they can trim some of the fat I'm down. I can't remember the character select from MK9 but I recall it being more compact or closer to MK2 in characters so... maybe going more that route. Plus all the customization really adds a whole lot of nuance to any one character.
        Fatalities look great as usual. The more over the top the better... they have to be and after so many decades(!) of this franchise being around you have to get creative; it's also a staple to the series so toning them down would be the reverse of what MK fans want (despite some weird outcries on them here).
        Game looks solid. I'm excited for it! Gonna pre-order no doubt because I want that Shang Tsung and I know I'm going to buy it no matter what so... why not!

          Good call I think your right on the old thing make no sense to make her look that way when it is modeled to Ronda, still Scarlet should look like a Fox :) , I am sure she has a Ninja alt/or gear which I am going to use so she is like MK9. Hope Sonya has an alt that is her young form.

          I agree on everything else you said, scratch that beef with the charcter slect screen I am on drugs it actually has [ 25 slots!!! ] which is insane if each has 3 forms plus all the gear combination. It actually make it the biggest MK roaster ever if you consider that! Like I said in another thread I thought there was only 10 LOL :)

          I am MEGA Hyped!

        They kind of messed up the female faces in Injustice 2 as well. So I think it might be an art choice.

        Day one purchase for me too. Been playing a bit of MKX in anticipation. I'm so happy that MK is still popular and just as awesome as ever :D

          Oh and speaking of Sub Zero, I'm bummed that no one freakin' picked him!

            January 17, 2019 6:56 PM

            I know!!! WTF hey, why did not one pick him? I got a vid that shows his ice spawning weapon moves they are insane!

            Scorpion is another massive fav of mine, no one played him either WTF x2? Huh and what one play with Raiden, I suppose they wanted to play with the new chars, so I get that. Crazy Sonya seems like a fav, never got into her.

            All good though not long till we play them all and they will show each char till April release on Twitch, but still it is odd for sure.

          I could of not said that any better, totally agree. Thank God it is still around and NetherRealm Studios and Ed Boon are better than ever and keep leveling up/ progressing like crazy over the years! It really is special and amazing where they have taken the studio and MK.

          No way, that is really cool Man \m/ :) . I tried to be Raiden once(he is my Fav) but the costume was a fail :( . I did have the real Raiden signature hat though from my Vietnamese friend that brought it back from when he went back home.

          Best times hey and only getting better.

              As big a fan I am I had pretty much written them off after MK4. I didn't like any of the other 3D variations and it just went in a direction I did not like but MK9 changed all that. The story mode in that is the quienstial MK movie basically. Which is awesome in all its violent cheesiness.

              I fucking love everything this studio does. When injustice 2 was released I was home sick that day and played the entire story mode in one sitting. I never do that shit!

              They are one of the few studios who continuously push and evolve their game with each release.
