Mortal Kombat 11 official cover artwork showing Scorpion

[Update]: NetherRealm is stopping development on Mortal Kombat 11 and moving onto a new game.

After quite a few previews, teasers and controversies, Mortal Kombat 11 has now finally made its way to both PC and consoles. It brings with it 25 playable characters, both newcomers and classics alike, a continuation of the somewhat convoluted storyline, as well as even more ridiculous action and over-the-top gore. Long story short, it's a new Mortal Kombat game!

If you're wondering what exactly this might look like in gameplay terms, as well as what the story is all about, allow me to share with you the recent launch trailer. Have a gander:

As for whether Mortal Kombat 11 is any good, the answer is a bit complicated. I'm not a big fan of fighting games myself so I haven't played it just yet, but from what I can tell the actual gameplay is being widely praised, especially when it comes to character abilities and the combos you can pull off. The same applies to the presentation as both the animations and sound effect are really well made.

Unfortunately, while the gameplay itself seems to be one of the best in the entire series, the whole in-game economy system is one of the grindiest I have seen in quite a while. The developers have already announced that they are working on addressing the issues, so unless you are incredibly eager to jump into multiplayer, I would highly recommend holding off from grabbing Mortal Kombat 11 for the time being. Better to be safe than sorry when it comes to these things.
