Mortal Kombat 11: Aftermath is still four days away, but that has not stopped Warner Bros. Mortal Kombat 11: Aftermath promises to be quite the occasion. The launch trailer shows off heated gameplay, dramatic cinematics to introduce the story, and plenty of the series' trademark gore. On top of new fighters in Sheva, Fujin, and the extremely exciting guest character RoboCop, the DLC provides brand new story content revolving around sorcerer Shang Tsung traveling through time to reclaim a tool needed to save their timeline. It sounds like a ton to indulge in – the DLC expansion promises to give fans plenty of reasons to dive right back into the popular fighter.
