It looks like there's going to be a Mortal Kombat 11 announcement trailer coming tomorrow! An ominous teaser clip has been posted to Twitter updating the schedule with what seems to be an excerpt from a larger scene. According to the post 'they are koming' -- but who are they? Watch:
Blink and you'll miss the 1 second snippet of footage that shows a Tarkatan warrior running through a wooded area in low light. The snap of his head to look back over his shoulder suggests this fearsome creature is running from something -- but who, or what? We'll find out 8:00AM CDT, Thursday morning.

Last month we followed a trail of clues from Bohemian Rhapsody and A Nightmare on Elm Street, to a Serious Six and Kobra. It all seems to be leading to tomorrow's reveal, with leading guesses speculating the hints relate to potential returning fighters such as Rain, or Reptile. Gamesmaster Ed Boon confirmed that some people correctly figured out his clues -- but hasn't given anything away.
Intensive data-mining of Mortal Kombat 11 has fueled popular speculation that Rain, Mileena, and guest character John Rambo may be imminent.
Twitter user @thethiny started everyone talking with speculative evidence found within updated coding. This included references to "Ramb" friendships and gear labelled MIL. The jungle or forest setting of the clip could be consistent with the guerilla tactics of Sylvester Stallone's arrow slinging war veteran, Rambo.
Ed Boon began September by slamming misinformation, but has previously acknowledged the veracity of in-game leaks. Similar data discoveries revealed the cast of the first Kombat Pack a month early, and forecast MK11 Aftermath and its characters more than a year before it was officially announced.
Developers poked fun at the phenomenon of data-mining by including a comical reference to 'Kombat Pack 2' in one of Terminator's win poses. The briefly appearing list of characters appropriately begins with Mileena and Rain.
What do you expect to see tomorrow? Will a flaming arrow streak into the hapless Tarkatan, or could his surroundings reveal familiar terrain such as The Living Forest? Share your guesses in the comments below and be with us on the Mortal Kombat 11 forum for tomorrow's reveal!
