The imminent expansion of Mortal Kombat 11: Aftermath will bring back klassic fighters and arenas as downloadable content, but one of the throwback stages is actually something brand new. The Retrocade is a slice of the 2D Klassic era projected on a contemporary stage. Take a closer look:

While the Soul Chamber and Dead Pool have been given a new design for Mortal Kombat 11; the Retrocade will literally project klassic 2D arenas onto a screen behind play. It's a meta arena, making use of retro assets to resurrect The Subway from MK3 in official render art, and The Temple in a recent Kombat Kast preview [pictured below]. Previews have also shown the Mortal Kombat II Portal stage.

The arena is similar to the Tournament Stage used to promote live events in-game, with an assortment of klassic Mortal Kombat arcade machines and paraphernalia in the periphery. Look closely the render art and you'll find a promotional standee for 2004's Mortal Kombat: Deception.

New stages will be part of a free downloadable update available to all players with MK11! There will also be no cost attached to the addition of Stage Fatalities and Friendships! Mortal Kombat 11: Aftermath is almost upon us! Officially released digitally on May 26th, you can pre-order the expansion for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC for a recommended $39.99. It gets you 3 new characters, 3 Skin Packs, and new story chapters!
