Past & present collide in new Mortal Kombat 11 trailer

Written by on | OpenCritic

Warner Bros Interactive and NetherRealm Studios have sent out a brand new story trailer for Mortal Kombat 11. Raiden has caught the eye of Kronika -- and not in a good way -- who is now rewinding "time to its beginning" in order to restart history.

As players move through the "immersive storyline", they will take on the role of several characters from both the past and the present. They do so "to defeat Shao Khan's Outworld armies and solve the temporal crisis at stake".

Players are also introduced to three new characters coming alongside Scorpion, Raiden, Sub-Zero, Sonya Blade, Skarlet, Baraka, Geras, Kano, D'Vorah, Kabal, Jade, and Johnny Cage: Cassie Cage, Jacqui Briggs, and Erron Black.


  • Cassie Cage, the commander of an elite Special Forces unit and daughter of the iconic duo, Sonya Blade and Johnny Cage, employs her lethal fighting skills to win every battle, with a relentless drive to measure up to her parents’ legacy.
  • Jacqui Briggs, a competitive fighter trained in kickboxing and martial arts, follows in the footsteps of her father, Jax Briggs, as a member of the Special Forces. She believes her duty is to protect Earthrealm and her family, no matter the risk.
  • Erron Black is a thrill-seeking outlaw hooked on the adrenaline of chasing his own pursuits. Black is a skilled crack shot selling his services to the highest bidder while dressed in classic western Outworld attire.

Mortal Kombat 11 will be released on April 23rd for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 4 Pro, XBox One, XBox One X, Nintendo Switch and PC.
