Mortal Kombat 11: Aftermath Gameplay Trailer Shows Three Brutal Fighting Styles for the New Characters
NetherRealm Studios released a new trailer for their upcoming content pack, Mortal Kombat 11: Aftermath. Unlike last week’s trailer, which offered details about the new campaign’s story included in this DLC, today’s trailer shows off some moves for the three new characters included in the expansion, as well as the extremely awesome and brutal moves they have.
The first character in Aftermath is Fujin, brother of Raiden. As you can imagine, he is a mystic human who primarily utilizes his weather powers—wind, as opposed to Raiden’s lightning—as well as a magic shortsword. The wind powers allow for a higher level of movement, both for Fujin’s own mobility and for pushing foes around the stage. Funnily enough, one of the few Fujin finishing moves seen in the trailer includes his magic crossbow, which Ed Boon himself said was dumb and did not fit well with the character’s arsenal at the time. Still a badass finisher though.
The second Aftermath character we see is a returning favorite, Sheeva. Sporting a much sleeker and impressive outfit than her previous Borat-style swimsuit, this iteration of the half-dragon Shokan queen looks better than ever. Sporting four massive arms, it’s more than obvious that Sheeva is a grappling character. The trailer shows her using powerful strikes, both with fist and shield, as well as her teleport stomp. The stomp launches Sheeva into the sky and back again for a devastating and unblockable strike.
The final character in Aftermath is none other than Alex Murphy, better known as Robocop. A human face stretched over a robot body, Robocop utilizes a number of the tools seen in the film, bringing new meaning to the term “police brutality.” He’s obviously going to use the Auto 9 we know and love, and he’s also seen with a much larger version of the terminal strip, his hidden arm blade, now looking more like a hidden arm sword. No gun arm to be seen in this trailer, but I have to assume it’s there. He also uses some new equipment, such as a heavy riot shield and a flamethrower. In some of his moves, Robocop is even given the Cobra Assault Cannon, the massive anti-material rifle that shoots explosive rounds. Not only that, Peter Weller, the original actor of Robocop, has returned to his role in order to the voice lines for Aftermath.
Mortal Kombat 11: Aftermath will be available on March 26th. The new DLC will feature an all-new cinematic story campaign, 3 new playable fighters, as well as 3 new skin packs, which will be released sometime later. Those who already own Mortal Kombat 11 can buy Aftermath for $39.99, and new players can purchase the base game and all DLC’s for $59.99 in the form of the Mortal Kombat 11: Aftermath Kollection.
