A new expansion and free content update revealed.
Mortal Kombat 11: Aftermath

WBIE announced on May 6, the upcoming release of Mortal Kombat 11: Aftermath. A digital release of this expansion begins on May 26 and is being developed by the game's developers at NetherRealm Studios. Included in this expansion is an all new cinematic story that focuses on the ideas of "trust and deceit."

Mortal Kombat 11: Aftermath is going to be priced at a lofty $39.99 (USD) for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, Stadia, and PC. Despite that high price, it does sound like there will be a decent amount of content included in Aftermath that should make it worthwhile for fans. There is also a combo pack that includes Aftermath and a Kombat Pack Bundle priced at $49.99.

Aftermath will pick up the story from the end of the base game. You'll want to make sure you played through that before even reading the synopsis for the Aftermath expansion below.

The epic saga continues in Mortal Kombat 11: Aftermath, as Fire God Liu Kang, the new keeper of time and protector of Earthrealm, must now enlist the help of unlikely allies and familiar foes to forge a new history as the fate of two worlds hang in the balance. Adding to the growing roster of playable fighters, the new expansion features the triumphant return of Fujin, the God of Wind who serves as Earthrealm’s protector alongside his brother Raiden, and Sheeva, the four-armed, half-human and half-dragon queen of the ancient Shokan race. RoboCop, the iconic, highly advanced cybernetic police officer will make his first appearance in the franchise, continuing the pedigree of popular Mortal Kombat guest fighters. RoboCop in Mortal Kombat 11: Aftermath features the voice and likeness of actor Peter Weller, who portrayed the popular character in both the original “RoboCop” (1987) film and “RoboCop 2” (1990) sequel. Mortal Kombat 11: Aftermath will also include three new character skin packs to be released over time.
RoboCop?! This almost certainly isn't the case, but I'd like to believe that RoboCop is included as part of the new Aftermath story in some capacity.

If you are a Mortal Kombat 11 owner that doesn't want to pick up Aftermath, you won't be left in the cold. NetherRealm is releasing some free content for all owners of the game. This content includes new stages like Klassic Dead Pool and the Soul Chamber arenas. These new stages are accompanied by the return of Stage Fatalities! These are finishers that allow you to use your environment to brutally eliminate your opponent.

Also returning in the free content drop are Friendships. Friendships were alternate finishers that were first introduced back in Mortal Kombat II in the early 90s. Instead of a violent end to your opponent, Friendships kill the opponent with kindness. Friendships and the new arenas will be released as a free content update alongside the release of Mortal Kombat 11: Aftermath.

For those that do not yet own any version of Mortal Kombat 11, you may want to look into getting the Mortal Kombat 11: Aftermath Kollection. This collection includes the base game, plus the upcoming Aftermath expansion, plus the previously released Kombat Pack that added six additional DLC characters (Shang Tsung, Nightwolf, Sindel, Terminator T-800, The Joker, and Spawn), plus 25 additional character skins. The Aftermath Kollection retails for $59.99.

All pre-orders will get the Eternal Klash Skin Pack at launch. This features three new character skin variants including: Unbound Rage for Scorpion (2011's Mortal Kombat), Son of Arctika Sub-Zero (Mortal Kombat: Deception), and Kori Power Frost.
