The rumours were true, as Ed Boon from Netherrealm Studios was on stage during The Game Awards to reveal the winner of the best sports/racing game, however that award was interrupted by the announcement of the next instalment in the Mortal Kombat saga, called Mortal Kombat 11.
In a very gory trailer (which is available for your viewing pleasure below) a fight between Raiden and Scorpion gave us an introduction to what seems to be a new system of designing characters - somewhat reminiscent of the one in Injustice 2.
A full reveal was promised next month, with a release planned for April 23. As Mortal Kombat X ended with a cliffhanger, we look forward to seeing how the Netherrealm will survive when Raiden no longer is willing to protect it.
Check out the first Mortal Kombat 11 trailer below. By pre-ordering the game, you will get beta access as well as the character Shao Khan. What do you think of what we've seen so far from Mortal Kombat 11?
