Mortal Kombat 11 has unveiled its first ‘Kombat Pack’ DLC, which includes early access to six new fighters. Those include series mainstays like evil sorcerer Shang Tsung, Native American warrior Nightwolf, and Edenian Queen Sindel. The new trailer also confirms Todd MacFarlane’s Spawn will be returning to Mortal Kombat, and promises two more special guests.

Certain parts of Mortal Kombat 11 are capped at 30 frames per second, meaning you lose the silky smooth 60+ fps look during some of its more spectacular moments, such as fatalities and final blows. Developer NetherRealm Studios says it’s looking into raising that cap to 60 fps, but they don’t know if or when it’ll be implemented.
Coming fresh off the hype from Mortal Kombat 11, it’s been confirmed that the long-anticipated reboot of the game’s film franchise is about to get underway. The Mortal Kombat movie will enter pre-production later this month, and be filmed in South Australia, according to a tweet from reporter Mike Smithson.
There’s more than devious puzzles lurking in Mortal Kombat 11’s Krypt. A Reddit user has found a game-breaking bug in the guresom fighting game’s gory labyrinth.
Much of Mortal Kombat 11 – including, crucially, its cutscenes and famously gruesome fatalities – are capped at 30 frames-per-second (fps). If you use an ultrawide monitor, it also burdens you with black side bars on menus and in the Krypt. That no longer needs to happen thanks to a new mod.
Mortal Kombat 11 is a pretty solid fighting game, but players have found certain aspects of it frustrating. Specifically, the Towers of Time mode is punishingly difficult, and without using some of the game’s consumables, it’s nigh impossible to clear certain towers. The problem is, Mortal Kombat 11 is pretty stingy when it comes to doling out its several in-game currencies. Fortunately, NetherRealm has fixes on the way, and in the meantime, players will be receiving some free currency “to help you along your way.”
Mortal Kombat 11 only launched yesterday, but developer NetherRealm Studios has already said it’ll be tweaking aspects of the game’s reward and monetisation systems. In a livestream yesterday, community manager Tyler Landsdown said that a handful of fixes would be rolling out “ASAP.”
It’s time again to participate in the most dangerous game. No, not hunting human beings – engaging them in over-the-top, hand-to-hand tests of skill to find out who can tear the spine and lungs out of whom. Yes, Mortal Kombat 11 is out tomorrow, and the critics have had their say.
You’ll be able to spend real money in Mortal Kombat 11, but only to buy cosmetic items and consumables that you can earn by playing the game. Developer NetherRealm says its in-game currency is only meant to save time, they won’t be gating any content behind microtransactions.
The original Mortal Kombat was notable not only for its violence, but also its use of digitised live actors to represent all the game’s characters. The uppercut and air kick animations are some of the most memorable bits in fighting game history, even if some of those characters are bolstered palette swaps. Midway saved the footage used to create those characters, and yes, it’s just as terrific as you’d expect.
