Mortal Kombat 11 is getting a huge expansion pass, adding new story content, fighters and even RoboCop.
The DLC – Aftermath – will fulfil fan requests to continue the story introduced in Mortal Kombat 11.
Aftermath was revealed in a video which focused heavily on the story-driven aspects of the brutally over-the-top fighting game.
As if the world of Mortal Kombat wasn’t confusing enough, the new DLC chapters introduced will be to do with time travelling.
Aftermath is giving a starring role to older characters from the franchise including Nightwolf, Fujin and Sheeva. The three characters will now having their biggest role in any Mortal Kombat game to date.
There will be plenty of lore-rich details about these characters and their motivations, which is sure to excite a lot of fans.
Liu Kang and Raiden are at the dawn of time, where they prepare to use Kronika’s Hourglass to restart history. This plan is put on hold as some unexpected guests arrive in the form of Fujin, Nightwolf, and Shang Tsung.
Liu Kang’s only solution? To send Shang Tsung, Nightwolf, and Fujin back into the past to retrieve the Crown before Kronika can even possess it. The DLC will add new stages, some of which are reimagined stages from very early games in the series.
The Retrokade map, for example, has been described by a PlayStation blog post as a ‘love letter to the fans who’ve been around since the earliest days of Mortal Kombat.’
Friendships will also be making a triumphant return which is a special finishing move introduced in Mortal Kombat 2, due to the game being ultra-violent.
This special, merciful move lets players perform various acts of kindness towards their opponent instead of hitting them with a gruesome Fatality. These acts in past games included giving birthday presents, blowing bubbles and doing a fun dance.
Not only that but a lot of stages, old and new, will also have Stage Fatalities in them, but for now, they’re a secret.
Of course, the addition of iconic RoboCop to the game’s character roster is pretty on-brand in terms of NetherRealm’s track record with DLC fighters.
Previous games had the likes of the Xenomorph from Alien, the Predator and even Leatherface and Jason Vorhees from slasher-horror fame made an appearance.
Mortal Combat 11 itself added the T-100 Terminator and more recently the Joker joined the fight.
