Friendships, Stage Fatalities and New Arenas Available Today as Part of Free Content Update for 

All Mortal Kombat 11 Players

 

Burbank, Calif. - May 26, 2020 – Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment today announced that Mortal Kombat 11: Aftermath, a new expansion for the hit videogame Mortal Kombat 11, the best-selling title in franchise history, is now available digitally for PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system, PlayStation®4 Pro computer entertainment system, the Xbox One family of devices including Xbox One X, Nintendo Switch™ system, PC and Stadia.

 

Developed by award-winning NetherRealm Studios, Mortal Kombat 11: Aftermath provides an all-new, cinematic story campaign that expands the Mortal Kombat 11 storyline with a time-bending narrative centered around trust and deceit. Through the immersive Story mode, players take on the role of various fighters to continue the epic saga as Fire God Liu Kang, the new keeper of time and protector of Earthrealm, must now enlist the help of unlikely allies and familiar foes to forge a new history as the fate of two worlds hang in the balance. 

 

Mortal Kombat 11: Aftermath also adds to the growing roster of playable fighters with the triumphant return of Fujin, the God of Wind who serves as Earthrealm’s protector alongside his brother Raiden, and Sheeva, the four-armed, half-human, half-dragon queen of the ancient Shokan race. RoboCop, the highly advanced cybernetic police officer, makes his first appearance in the franchise and features the voice and likeness of actor Peter Weller, who portrayed the popular character in both the “RoboCop” (1987) and “RoboCop 2” (1990) films. The expansion also includes three new character skin packs (incl. three skins each) to be released over time and the “Thanks a Million” Johnny Cage character skin, which is available today.

 

Additionally, all Mortal Kombat 11 owners have access to a free content update beginning today, including the new Dead Pool, Soul Chamber, RetroKade and Kronika’s Keep Stages, as well as Stage Fatalities, the fan-favorite finishing moves that use the environment to destroy opponents, and the popular ‘90’s Friendships feature, allowing players to take down their adversaries with a hint of kindness.

 

Those who already own Mortal Kombat 11 can purchase the Mortal Kombat 11 Aftermath expansion now digitally for $39.99 (SRP) or the Mortal Kombat 11: Aftermath + Kombat Pack Bundle digitally for $49.99 (SRP). 

 

New players can join the fight with the Mortal Kombat 11: Aftermath Kollection, featuring all characters, story content and game modes in one ultimate package. Available now digitally for $59.99 (SRP), this compilation includes Mortal Kombat 11 along with all content from Mortal Kombat 11: Aftermath and the previously released Mortal Kombat 11 Kombat Pack, containing six downloadable content (DLC) characters – Shang Tsung, Nightwolf, Sindel, The Joker, Terminator T-800 and Spawn – plus 25 additional character skins. The Mortal Kombat 11: Aftermath Kollection physical version will release beginning June 16 in the Americas only. Please check with your local retailer for availability.
