If the announce trailer for Mortal Kombat 11 is still smacking you silly with its intense new visions of Raiden and Scorpion, you can now slow things down and get a closer look thanks to the first official screenshots! Click the thumbnails to enlarge:

The images were released via the Steam Store where eager players can already pre-order Mortal Kombat 11 for the PC! Pre-ordering gets you early access to Beta play and downloadable bonus character Shao Kahn!

New designs feel consistent with Mortal Kombat X and the modern iconography for Raiden and Scorpion, but also suggest armored pieces that may play a part in the new Character Variation Custiomization system.

The images also offer the first close look at backgrounds, with high gloss graphics showing what seems to be a Special Forces military base, and dilapidated courtyard reminiscent of the original arena from Shang Tsung's Island! We can only speculate what horrific atrocities these solemn locations will have witnessed!

Answers will come as we countdown to a January game reveal ahead of the April 23rd release! Register to share your reactions and join the speculation on the new Mortal Kombat 11 forum!
