It all started back at the game awards, when Ed Boon came out on stage to present the award for best sports or racing game. As the nominees were about to be shown on screen, lightning struck and we were all given probably one of the best parts of the show. The reveal of Mortal Kombat 11.
What happened next was 2 minutes of a bad ass fighting cinematic between Scorpion, my character of choice, and Raiden. Everyone was extremely excited and news pieces started going up about what people wanted to see, but then the news broke that a reveal would be happening on January 17, 2019. This brings us today, where they went all out on their reveal stream showing almost everything that the Mortalk Kombat community had wanted.
It started with a gameplay trailer showing some of what we saw with the announce trailer and then the other characters started showing up.
Mortal Kombat 11 takes place right after Mortal Kombat 9, and in the prologue you catch up with Raiden interrogating Shinnok.
There are only a few characters that were revealed today during the event and two of them received their own trailers. Shao Kahn will be a pre-order bonus that also gives you access to the beta
Of couse the one thing that everyone wanted to see was the new fatalaties, as those are the one part of this game that has always pushed the envelope.
Lastly they gave us a little insight to the development of the game with some behind the scenes
