New character Geras joins Mortal Kombat 11's roster

This is an event which was alluded to at the climax of Mortal Kombat X.

Mortal Kombat 11 launches on PS4, Xbox One, PC, and Nintendo Switch April 23. Making their return after a short break are Outworld warrior Baraka and Mortal Kombat 9 DLC star Skarlet, who brings her (literal) bloody mayhem back into the ring.

We know that for Shao Kahn, Raiden and Scorpion will be in the game, but tonight's event is due to show off a lot more about the game. EX Meter appears to be split between Offensive and Defensive abilities, and the Super Moves are now known as "Fatal Blows", still activated by mashing the shoulder buttons. That's always been Mortal Kombat's shtick, of course, and the game's cheesy tone means it's impossible to take entirely seriously, but even so - this is pushing the envelope of nastiness.


"I tried to grow up to be Sonya Blade as close as I could", she explained.

"I've been a lifelong Mortal Kombat fan, and Sonya Blade was the first kick-ass, female video game character that I related to", said Rousey.

What's interesting about guest characters in Mortal Kombat, is that even though they've become rather synonymous with each other, it wasn't until the most recent MK game that they became a robust feature. During his appearance on stage, Lansdown revealed this version of the game contains a copy of the game, an exclusive steel case and magnet, a Scorpion mask and a kollector box. A Fatality reel showcased a snippet of each fighter's new finishing move, such as Sub-Zero decapitating someone with an ice blade and then freezing their head and crushing it into dust, Sonya shooting her opponent into rotating helicopter blades, and new boy Geras' time traveling finisher. Available only to those who pre-order MK11, the beta will begin on 28th March, around a month before the full release.
