Mortal Kombat 11 is officially coming to all the major platforms in April 2019! A surprise trailer was unveiled by Ed Boon while presenting Best Sports Racing Game at The Game Awards. Relive every brutal blow below and read on for more:

This time Raiden and Scorpion have the honor of introducing the new game. Just when it looks like Scorpion has met his match, the Thunder God is attacked by a klassic ninja spectre right out of MK3 and MK4!

Mortal Kombat 11 will boast an all-new Customizable Character Variation system, which may mean fans can not only tailor their own play style - but also their fighter's look! It's a similar basic concept to the Gear System introduced with Injustice 2, but we'll have to stay tuned to see exactly how it operates.

Raiden appears to fight with the corruption he received from cleansing Earthrealm's Jinsei spirit at the end of Mortal Kombat X, but it doesn't look like he'll be the only power threatening stability between worlds! A sinister new figure lingers mysteriously by a mesh hourglass-like object. Their identity is unknown, but the yellow motif and hexagonal structures remind us of D'Vorah and her MKX ending's infestation of Shinnok. Is this fighter known to us - or something completely new? Update: A press release confirms this is a "new character who is at the center" of the "time bending" story.

Pre-ordering will also get a returning playable Shao Kahn and Beta Access before the April 23rd global release! The PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch & PC game will be revealed in a special community event January 17th.
