Evo 2019 Mortal Kombat 11 World Championship
Kombat returns to Sin City!

The Evo World Championship is the biggest live tournament event in the gaming world, and for players in the Mortal Kombat 11 Pro Kompetition it was a chance to score major points towards the series rankings! The favourites assembled in Las Vegas with a $15,000 prize purse on the line and the biggest bragging rights of them all!

Watch: Day 1 | Day 2 | Championship

Even as Mortal Kombat 11 made its Evo debut, there was a lot that felt familiar about the World Championship finals. Sonic Fox once again proved he is the unshakeable constant of the Mortal Kombat scene, securing his third Mortal Kombat and fifth career Evo World Title! It was almost six -- he was also runner-up playing Dragon Ball FighterZ! SonicFox is technically the defending champion, having won the 2016 Mortal Kombat XL tournament -- the last time MK was at Evo.

The 2019 MK11 Grand Final was an inversion of the finish to July's CEO 2019 tournament. There, SonicFox was forced to overcome the pressure of falling into the second chance bracket. This time it was his rival Dragon who fought from underneath - but the end result was much the same. SonicFox closed it out with a clean 3-0 win.

The grand competitive stage brought the best out of Deoxys! He improved on 7th at Combo Breaker to earn his best career result, 4th behind 2016 MKXL runner-up and unpredictable excitement machine Tekken Master!

Nightwolf Arrives in Mortal Kombat 11 DLC Trailer
Nightwolf returns!

The long awaited Nightwolf reveal trailer is finally here! The Matoka warrior takes on klassic MK3 contemporary Kabal in an action packed trailer that shows off his deadly arsenal in Mortal Kombat 11. Take a look:

Tomahawk hand axes and a glowing bow & arrow signals the fusion of old and new in the Kombat Pack's next downloadable fighter!

Nightwolf walks with animal spirits beside him, unleashing new enhanced attacks with hawk and bear motifs, while also calling upon old favourites to hack, slash, spear, and strike at his rivals! Just like Mortal Kombat 3, he can summon lightning strikes and deflect projectiles. His most iconic weapons remain his deadliest, controlling the short, mid, and ranged with close quarters knife stabs, graceful axe swipes, and arrow projectiles!

The trailer pits Nightwolf against Baraka, Kotal Kahn, and newly instated Black Dragon rival Kabal, whose death culminates in another gruesome fatality for the series. Victory is punctuated with a roar echoed by a beying wolf spirit somewhere on a moonlit mountain. A cinematic capper for the hotly anticipated returning fighter!

As previously reported, early access for Kombat Pack holders begins August 13th. The trailer also confirms a Klassic Arcade Fighter Skin Pack with MK3 inspired designs for Jax, Kung Lao, and Kano.

Nightwolf is the second downloadable fighter released as part of the Kombat Pack. He joins Shang Tsung, with Sindel already teased and much discussed guest Spawn. Was Nightwolf worth the wait? Tell us all about it in the comments below and join the discussion on the Mortal Kombat 11 forum!
