Introducing a new “cinematic narrative centred around trust and deceit”, Aftermath includes new playable characters Fujin, Sheeva and cybernetically enhanced Detroit Police Department officer RoboCop.
The guest fighter features the voice and likeness of actor Peter Weller, who starred as RoboCop in the 1987 sci-fi film of the same name and its 1990 sequel.
New players can purchase the base game and the expansion in the form of the $59.99 / £49.99 / €59.99 Mortal Kombat 11: Aftermath Kollection. It also includes the previously released Kombat Pack, which adds six DLC characters and 25 character skins. A physical version of this package will release in June in the Americas.
An Aftermath and Kombat Pack bundle is priced at $49.99 / £39.99 / €49.99.
The story expansion will be released alongside a free update for all players introducing new stages, including the Klassic Dead Pool and Soul Chamber arenas, and Stage Fatalities.
It will also include the 1990s Friendships feature which lets players perform an act of kindness after they beat opponents rather than finishing them off in a gruesome manner.
Mortal Kombat 11 released in April 2019 and was the fifth best-selling game in the US last year.
VGC’s Mortal Kombat 11 review said the title’s “close to being the best all-round fighting game package but falls just short due to an aggressive need for currency grinding to unlock content.”
Warner Bros. also plans to release a new Mortal Kombat live action movie.
