NetherRealm Studios have released a new gameplay trailer, showing off Sheeva, Fujin and, of course, Robocop. The video also highlights the new stages that the update is going to bring to all players for free. Naturally, there’s also a few flashy stage Fatalities to spice things up further. But, really, the true stars are the three new characters are the real stars of the show, as they should be.
If you’ve been curious to see how the three new characters coming in Mortal Kombat 11 Aftermath will work, now you have the chance. The gameplay trailer shows Robocop, Sheeva, and Fujin in all their glory. Fujin is quick and wields the power of the wind (being a wind god and all), Sheeva is as brutal as Goro, but more nimble, and Robocop is, well, Robocop. Honestly, he’s a bit of a letdown; he seems to play like a clunkier version of Sektor or Stryker. Which, yes, makes sense, but still doesn’t get me very excited.
The fighters are not the only new thing that the trailer shows us. We also get to see the new stages in action (Dead Pool, Soul Chamber, Kronika’s Keep and RetroKade), as well as several stage Fatalities. My favorite is, of course, the one where you pick up an old arcade machine of Mortal Kombat and splatter your enemy with it. Reminds me of the old Liu Kang Fatality. We don’t get to see any of the Friendship moves, but we do know that everyone will get them for free, as well as the stages.
As for the new characters and new single player story missions, you’ll have to fork out money for those. The pricing of this stuff has been causing a kerfuffle among the community, and rightfully so, but that’s a matter for a different article. For now, you can check out the new characters and stages in the trailer below, as you wait for May 26th for the Aftermath expansion to launch.
