NetherRealm Studios has released a new trailer to mark the upcoming release of Mortal Kombat 11: Aftermath. The expansion will be adding new story content, new fighters, and other new things including post match fatalities and friendships. The new trailer is all about becoming friends with the person that you may have been mercilessly cutting up and impaling, and it goes through a montage of different friendships including Scorpion with a Teddy Bear, Sub Zero and his ice cream, and the Terminator riding in on his bike. The song choice is top notch too. These new friendships will be available for free to all Mortal Kombat 11 players, along with new fatalities and stages.
Fujin, Sheeva, and Robocop are the three characters that will be part of the Aftermath content pack, and the narrative has been described as being focused on the issues of trust and deceit, which is a pretty regular theme running through the Mortal Kombat franchise. Mortal Kombat 11: Aftermath will be available on May 26th as a separate purchase from the Kombat Pack season pass. Those who have not got Mortal Kombat 11 can get a bundle containing both the base game and Aftermath.
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.
