Right from the start Mortal Kombat 11 has promised big things from post-release support. The All Hallow's Eve skin pack is right around the corner, but Creative Director Ed "Doctor" Boon has opened our eyes to what's next with the first cryptic clue in quite some time. Check it out:

Boon chose evergreen rockers Queen to deliver his coded message, embedding the iconic 1975 banger that more recently doubled for the title of the band's Oscar nominated biopic: Bohemian Rhapsody.

In a follow-up tweet he more specifically isolated a particular phrase from the first stanza: "Open your eyes, look up to the skies and see".

Speculation can invite a dangerous game of disappointments, and as is customary for Mortal Kombat ambiguity, the tweet has invited a flood of wild and varied guesses. Most have centered around prospective DLC fighters, but it's worth noting that the Creative Director never even specifies it will be downloadable content.

Boon does very specifically confirm his tweet is a clue, while also labelling it as the first in a series, which means it's smart not to cling too closely to any guesses or theories. As the song says, easy come, easy go.

The next line of the song describes a "poor boy" who needs no sympathy, which could suggest street thief turned Earthrealm hero Kung Jin, who was one of two next generation heroes who didn't make the MK11 cut. Takahashi Takeda was the other notable absentee -- a popular choice for downloadable content.

If we take Boon at his word: looking to the sky might recall another famous clue from the Mortal Kombat canon. "Look to La Luna" started the search for the original secret character and could suggest Reptile will leave his hiding place in The Krypt. Italian astronomer Galileo Galilei looked to the moon (la luna) in the 17th century as the "father of observational astronomy", and his name is chanted later in Bohemian Rhapsody.

Bohemian Rhapsody is rich with symbolism and imagery. What do you think Boon's clue is pointing us towards? Share your theories in the comments below and fandango your way to the Mortal Kombat 11 forum for a devil set aside just for you!
