    It has begun! Mortal Kombat 11 is now available on the PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4. Mortal Kombat 11 is a fighting game developed by NetherRealm Studios and published by Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment. It has microtransactions to speed up the gear unlock rate. You may or may not want to do this. NetherRealm is already looking to address the game's grindy economy.

    So far, most professional critics have largely praised the game with the exception being the already mentioned economy grind. Users, on the other hand, have decided that the game is trash because of the economy and for apparently "pushing a political agenda" based off of Jax's arcade mode ending. His ending is about as tame as can possibly be. I can safely assume that people upset by Jax's ending are idiots or racists, or even just idiot racists. I think to be a racist you'd have to first be an idiot so perhaps I'm being extra redundant here.

    PC owners do have an extra, and legitimate, bone to pick with the game. Right now at launch, the game is capped at 60fps (which is understandable and even desired for a fighting game). However, the cinematics and scripted gameplay elements are capped at 30fps. The experience can be jarring constantly going between 60fps and 30fps for those who are used to constant framerates in their games.

    And now, the information about all that is Mortal Kombat 11 as provided in the press release from WBIE.

    In Mortal Kombat 11, the story continues as Raiden’s defeat of the evil Elder God, Shinnok, has drawn the ire of Kronika, the Keeper of Time, and upset her desired balance between good and evil. To restore stability in the realms, Kronika has only one option – rewind time to its beginning and restart history. Through the immersive story mode, players take on the role of various fighters from past and present Mortal Kombat eras, who must join forces to defeat Shao Khan’s Outworld armies and solve the temporal crisis at stake.

    Mortal Kombat 11 features a robust roster of new and returning fighters with unique abilities and Fatalities. UFC champion, Olympic medalist and WWE superstar, Ronda Rousey, takes on the role of Sonya Blade, alongside multiple fan-favorite characters, including Scorpion, Raiden, Sub-Zero, Liu Kang, Kung Lao, Johnny Cage, Cassie Cage, Jax Briggs, Jacqui Briggs, Kitana, Skarlet, Baraka, Kano, D'Vorah, Kabal, Jade, Erron Black, Kotal Kahn, Noob Saibot, Frost and Shao Kahn. They are joined by a variety of franchise-first fighters such as Geras; a powerful servant of Kronika who can manipulate time; Cetrion, the Elder Goddess of Virtue and Guardian of Life; and The Kollector, a corrupt enforcer and loyal associate of Shao Kahn.

    Mortal Kombat 11 is packed to the brim with multiple modes for all players, including the Towers of Time, which builds upon NetherRealm’s past gameplay experiences and allows players to test their skills through various challenges, providing more ways than ever to continue the fight. The Krypt also makes a return as part of Shang Tsung’s mysterious island, allowing players to explore and interact with the environment in new ways, while unlocking rewards that can be used in other modes of the game.

    The Mortal Kombat 11 Standard edition is available for $59.99 (SRP). The Mortal Kombat 11 Premium Edition is available for $99.99 (SRP), including the base game and the Kombat Pack which feature six new downloadable content (DLC) playable characters, one-week early access to DLC characters, seven exclusive character skins and seven sets of gear. The Mortal Kombat 11 Kollector’s Edition is available for $299.99 (SRP), including the main game, Kombat Pack, Scorpion mask bust, exclusive steel case, commemorative magnet coin and authenticity plate. Shang Tsung is one of six playable DLC fighters included in the Kombat Pack. Actor Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa is lending his voice and likeness to the popular character that he portrayed in the classic 1998 Mortal Kombat film.
