Any gamer worth their D-pad knows the Mortal Kombat series has A), been around for a long bloody time and B), has always been incredibly violent. Somehow, the upcoming entry into the franchise, Mortal Kombat 11, is the goriest I’ve seen yet.
The new game was announced a little while ago, but new details, trailers, and gameplay videos have emerged earlier today, including some of the wildest fatalities ever seen. I mean, they were creative before, but this is just insane. Have a look at the fatalities trailer below.
Christ, look at all of those severed heads. There’s also a new gameplay trailer which shows off various fighters, special moves, and some absolutely stunning graphics. Get a load of that bad boy below.
Goodness me, who do they get to clean up all the blood? Those places must be a total mess by the end of those fights. Unreal. I also love how it’s not enough for Sub Zero to simply remove a man’s entire skull and spine from his body, he must also freeze it. Now that’s showmenship, folks.
You’d be forgiven for thinking there isn’t much of a story in Mortal Kombat games, but you’d be wrong. Along with the gory stuff, Warner Bros. Interactive also dropped a story trailer today, which you can check out below.
You can also suss out an entire fight, which was shown during the live reveal.
The gentleman with the scary teeth is named Baraka and if you ask me, I’m less frightened of his enormous mouth and more impressed with how he manages to talk so clearly without any lips. Honestly, tuck your lips into your mouth and try to have a chat. There’s nothing threatening about that at all.
Mortal Kombat 11 is due out on April 23 for PC, Nintendo Switch, PS4, and Xbox One.Image: Warner Bros. Interactive
