So far there are 25 characters slots for the roster.
Its not much, even MKX started with more.

So far we know there is:
1. Rayden
2. Scorpion
3.Baraka
4. Sonya
5. Geras
6. Skarlet
7. Sub Zero

and from the story mode trailer we can assume there are also playable
8. Liu Kang
9. Kung Lao

so there are only 16 more to be revelead!

It blew me away honestly. The in game graphics are almost indistinguishable from the trailer graphics, unpredictable returnees like Baraka and Skarlet, some of the most creative fatalities I've seen in years, and the opening prologue for the story mode was great. I've got a feeling it will be much better than the MKX story mode.

I am also very intrigued by the new mechanics. I forget what it is they called that new move, was it finishing blow? It's like they've added finishing moves when your opponent is in 'Danger' on their health bar but before the actual Finish Him/Her screen. I love that. Was it "finishing blow" or something like that?

I love that it looks dark as the old trilogy style, and MK9 as well.
MKX wasnt that dark ,

i LOVE the backgrounds and the lighting on the stages. Its so realistic. I also saw the Temple level??

There are small blows like Xrays during the matches, which is so much better than old Xrays where they were really slow and repeated themselves. The new xrays blows are called CRUSHING BLOWS, and when YOUR character reaches 30% level, you have the move FINAL BLOW available, which seems like your last chance to defeat your opponent. Its almost like a small Brutality.

Before the stream ended, there was a quick appearance of a character that moved really quickly, but they said it will be revealed on the first Live Kast in 2 weeks. It kinda looks like Sonic, LOL
But judging from the speed, it could be Kabal. Here is a snapshot.

Not impressed so far. I guess my expectations were really high, and I was looking for something completely different than from MKX (a game which I borderline dislike). Some of the things that I do not like so far:

Variations are back. Hated these in MKX.

“Brutalities” similar to MKX. I was hoping they would bring back the old school Brutalities.

Skarlet looks horrendous. Goggles? Wtf.

Sonya’s look seems practically unchanged from MKX. And that was one of her blandest designs.

Baraka has a samurai helmet in one of his variations. I am sick of the samurai look. Is every character going to sport some sort of samurai gear? It looks ridiculous.

Only 25 base combatants?

Looks amazing. Lots to take in. Story is gonna be amazing, the glimpse of young Liu Kang and Kung Lao fighting their revenant selves was incredible. Can't wait until people start rounding up all the info and images but for now....

They showed Scorpion, Skarlet, Sub-Zero, Baraka, Geras, Raiden and Sonya on the Select Screen so 100% konfirmed playable.

The gameplay trailer showed Revenant Liu Kang fighting Raiden so also 100% konfirmed playable.

The Behind the scenes video showed Cassie Cage in a intro speaking with Kitana, so they're also both playable 100%

The other characters seen were Shinnok, Kano, Johnny Cage, Kabal and Kung Lao. Shinnok was MKX model so more than likely just in the intro of story and then not playable. Kano and Johnny are seen in the background of arenas (Black Dragon Fight Klub) so might not be playable. Kano was seen in the main menu image for local fighting though, so a probable konfirmation there. Kabal was teased for the first kombat kast so more than likely playable. Kung Lao was shown in story mode snippets and has all new model so more than likely playable.

Honestly I didn't like it.

And.

Slow

No Tag Mode?

No Brutalities like MKX?

Only 25 characters and one being Shao Kahn?

No ending fatalities?

Too much like Injustice. A game I played 1 week and sold it. I think I will cancel my pre-order.

Pretty sure the old "x-rays" are now called Fatal Blows and only available with 30% life left. And there are some other conditions, so you still have to think about it when you use it. You can't use it every round.

Not liking how some characters look (style wise) is kind of redundant at the moment, since you can customize a lot, style-wise. So don't like a certain design? There are plenty of styles and accesories to choose from to make the character look unique and very different.
I'm only worried about Sonya's face, too different from MK9 and MKX and I don't mean style-wise, but bone-structure. (kind of the same for Cassie Cage, although it's closer to MKX than Sonya's)

New meter system ( defense (vertical)/offense (horizontal) ). Don't know if it fills through times or times hit.

The no ice clone for Sub-Zero is a real bummer :/. But I saw a move where is makes ice on the ceiling and uppercuts you against it or something like that.

Alot of people on the twitch stream did not like the gameplay. Looks like dial-up combos AND juggles are completely gone from this game AND no run button. Lots and lots of zoning projectiles and gear has stats on it that will buff your character. It's early for me to tell if the gameplay is slow or not but i dont know what to think yet. We already know more than half of the roster.

1. Sonya
2.Sub zero
3.Scorpion
4. Shao Khan
5.Scarlet
6. Geras
7.Raiden
8.Kung Lao
9. Kitana
10. Kabal
11.Liu Kang
12.Baraka.
13. Kassie Cage
14. Kronika

DLC
1. Michael Myers

Possible non playable only in story mode/ Arena
1.Kano
2.Johnny Cage
3. Shinnok

Matching the email leak of new characters.
1. Kano's son

Pro player Mains for MK11 (maybe they know the roster?)
1. Rain
2. Jade

Played it at the event. It isn’t slow at all. Most people playing just hadn’t got to grips with it yet and Brutalities are back.

u can see the beige pants, knee pads and hook swords... obviously kabal I would think? Hence why he is on the confirmed roster that I posted above yours....Game is starting to look faster. Scorpion plays really fast, teleports are back and he looks to have dial-up combos. He is the only character that made the game not look slow.

“Brutalities” similar to MKX. I was hoping they would bring back the old school Brutalities.

Why would anyone think old school Brutalities are better than the ones in MKX? All it was a long combo in which the other player would explode, one repetitive move.

Only 25 characters and one being Shao Kahn?

@facr Shao Kahn is a pre-order BONUS so there's not a slot for him on the character select screen we saw.

Played it tonight in London and it's awesome. I'm sure they've got lots more up their sleeve to come.

I like that the run button is gone and that there are no more dial a kombos. I'm no expert on the in's and out's of fighting games but won't slowing it down a bit by only being able to walk and not being able to juggle people with kombos make it more about the strategy of pressuring people up close vs. zoning vs. footsies?

Was pretty much going to say this.

The fact that people are complaining about gear that can be changed is absolutely absurd. If you don't like any of the gear once the game comes out, sure. Complain your heart out at that point.

Though it was hard to take any of that post seriously after seeing that the MKX style brutalities are considered a negative compared to the way they used to be. I loved the MK3 ones but they aren't even in the same conversation when it comes to quality.

I already wrote my opinion in another thread so I will just quote it:

[SUB-ZERO

I'm disappointed beyond words...

When MKX came out, it just blow my mind how great the fighting mechanics were, how fast it was and how professional. And with the patches through months I can say without a doubt that MKXL became the best fighting game of all times.

Now, I waited 4 years and hoped when the day of the next MK arrives, that I will be blown away even more and that Netherealm can actually push the bar even further. This day finally came and after seeing the direct gameplay between pro players like Scar, Sonicfox etc. I realized that Netherealm scrapped the glorious MKXL fighting mechanics and instead they created an slow paced Injustice 3 in a MK coat. MK characters, blood and gore, but that's it. The game is a slow, noobish Injustice clone where there is no running, no fast combos, cancels etc. Camera is way too far away and characters are way too small compared to MKXL. Just a lame zoning mechanics which was the main cause why Injustice 2 online play died very soon.

And before someone tells me that this is a beta. Well, there are only 3 months left and you don't have to be a rocket scientist to find out that there will be no major changes in the game, especially not in the core mechanics like the fighting-engine.

[SUB-ZERO

This game is extremely slow, lumpish and unprofessional compared to MKXL. MK11 should be a step forward, but instead it's a step back. Now we have to wait another 4 years for them to fix the mistakes of MK11 in a possible MK12...

I'm a hardcore MK fan since 1992 when I first played it in the arcades. And till then I bought every single MK game on multiple consoles and on PC. I couldn't believe that the day will come when I will not buy an MK episode, but it seems that MK11 will be skipped from my collection, especially with my experience in Injustice 2 (which I sold after one month).

I am mortal - I am a thief and assassin - I am a Lin Kuei warrior - I am SUB-ZERO
