Yesterday we were promised some new character reveals for NetherRealm Studios' Mortal Kombat 11 and earlier today, the Chicago-based game developer officially announced Aftermath, the acclaimed fighting game's biggest expansion to date. The DLC will be released on May 26 for PS4, XBO, NS, PC, and Stadia.
According to NetherRealm, Mortal Kombat 11: Aftermath expands the story campaign with a new "cinematic narrative centered around trust and deceit." When it comes to said narrative, the DLC will be focused mostly on Fire God Liu Kang — the new protector of Earthrealm — who 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."
Although some fresh story beats will surely make fans of Mortal Kombat 11 happy, there's no denying that new fighters interest players the most. It looks like the studio is not planning to disappoint its fanbase, as Aftermath will introduce three all-new contenders: Fujin, Sheeva, and RoboCop, voiced by Peter Weller.
The expansion will be priced at $39.99. "Our fans have really enjoyed the story campaign in Mortal Kombat, and we’re happy to continue the narrative and add new characters to the roster with Mortal Kombat 11: Aftermath," Creative Director Ed Boon explained in a press release. "In addition, Friendships and Stage Fatalities are being added as part of the free content update for all Mortal Kombat 11 players. Both are fan-favorite features that we’re excited to finally bring back to the franchise."
