Here’s the lowdown on each of them from Warner Bros.:

  • 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 will actually feature the likeness and voice of Peter Weller, who played the character in the first two films from 1987 and 1990.

In addition to this trio of characters, a free update will add Dead Pool, Soul Chamber, Kronika’s Keep and RetroKade stages for all players, as well as some Stage Fatalities.

Sounds good right? Can’t wait for 26th May when it will release for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, PC and Stadia?Well… brace yourself because I’ve not told you how much this all costs.

You’ll be able to buy the Aftermath expansion, with its story expansion, three player characters and nine skins (released over time in three character skin packs) and the “Thanks a Million” Johnny Cage skin for the high, high price of £34.99 / €39.99. Alternatively, you can pre-order the Aftermath + Kombat Pack Bundle, which includes the previously released six character and 25 skin Kombat Pack, for £39.99 / €49.99. If you don’t have the main game yet, the whole lot can be pre-ordered for £49.99 / €59.99 with access to the main game and Kombat Pack as soon as you buy.

So, yeah.

In our review for Mortal Kombat 11, Miguel wrote:

This game is the pinnacle of Mortal Kombat action. Fights are fluid, weighty, and gorgeous to look at. Unfortunately, that tightly-designed gameplay is bogged down by a grindy system of loot and consumables that only serves to artificially extend your playtime in the most tedious ways imaginable. There is so much heart and care put into this game, from the combat to the gorgeous visuals and memorable story, but that effort feels nullified by the desperate attempt to twist an iconic video game franchise into just another endlessly online service game.
