It was at The Game Awards where Mortal Kombat was finally revealed for the first time after tons of rumours and speculations about a sequel, and while we've already reported on a new product listing for the Premium Edition - listing six DLC fighters - there's also something that might interest esports fans in there too.
In the listing from GameStop Italy we see that the game is listed as having a "strong multiplayer component, entirely oriented towards the esports". These are bold words, especially since the game is "entirely" focused on the competitive side of things, so it seems like Netherrealm Studios certainly has the Fighting Game Community (FGC) in mind for this game.
Mortal Kombat X has had its fair share of success in esports already, as has Injustice 2, but neither has hit the heights of Street Fighter V, so perhaps this is an attempt to get Mortal Kombat 11 among the best of the best when it comes to fighting games. No doubt they'll be aiming for big competitions like Evo too, and hopefully we'll see their own ones after release as well.
