The end is here, but players can forge a new history with Mortal Kombat 11: Aftermath. DLC characters take the lead in a new story mode that will send them back in time to prevent the destruction of Kronika's Crown! See what happens when old and new interact in the Launch Trailer! Watch:

The announce trailer set up a basic plot that will see Shang Tsung leading efforts to save reality after Fire God Liu Kang destroyed Kronika's crown at the end of the standard story mode. The launch trailer flips that premise on its head though, ending with Liu Kang exiting a portal to confront the crown-wearing sorcerer!

Shang Tsung won't be the only one wearing the reality warping macguffin. Returning fighter Fujin dons the device during the trailer, which also shows the wind god holding it with ominous dialogue speaking of changes to the timeline.

Familiar scenes from the MK11 story mode will clearly be revisited, with the forces of Kitana & Liu Kang's Netherrealm rallying and Kronika commanding someone to kill each other. It looks as if the fight will come right to the Keeper of Time's door as the battle for the past and future escalates into all out war!

You can get another taste of things to come with a Story Mode preview scene featuring Nightwolf and Sheeva, or get straight to fighting with the official gameplay trailer.
