Today’s five Mortal Kombat 11 trailers go all in on the all-out violence.
Today is the day of the huge Mortal Kombat 11 uncover occasion, and as a major aspect of the blood-doused celebrations we have a heap of new trailers to take a gander at. There’s the mandatory casualty montage, obviously, MMA star Ronda Rousey discusses voicing (and being face filtered for) warrior Sonya Blade, and in one video you can see a man get punched in the back of the head so hard that his cerebrum launches through his face.
We’ll start with Rousey, a long-term Mortal Kombat fan who additionally happens to be quite great at battling, in actuality. She appears to be truly excited about the job, despite the fact that the trailer just shows two lines, for a sum of 12 words, of genuine in-diversion discourse.
Next up is the “gameplay reveal” video, which is a fairly straightforward presentation of oddly-dressed people fighting and dying in horrifically violent ways. Watch all the way to the end and you’ll see what appears to be a spike of frozen blood, tipped with an eyeball, driven through the back of somebody’s skull. This is full-on Mortal Kombat territory.
Number three on the list is the “story prologue” trailer. Despite not featuring any fights, it manages to be possibly the most disturbing video of the bunch. What happens when you decapitate a man who cannot die? I can tell you this much: Immortality is not all it’s cracked up to be.
Fourth is the introduction of Geras, “a powerful and loyal servant of Kronika” who has the power to manipulate time, and also to literally smack your brain out of your skull by way of your face. Kronika, the goddess of time, is also a newcomer: She appears in the story prologue trailer above, and apparently has some kind of beef with Raiden.
Last but certainly not least: Fatalities. This is just a series of gratuitously violent deaths, the sort of thing where you freeze a man’s skull and then smash it into a thousand pieces after you’ve chopped it off his body, because that’s how things are done in the Netherrealm. If you haven’t bailed out on this ridiculous bloodfest yet, be warned that the aforementioned decapi-smash is probably the least graphic murder in the bunch.
