Mortal Kombat 11 Aftermath Gameplay: New Characters, Stages, Fatalities

NetherRealm Studios just dropped a ton of info on Mortal Kombat 11 Aftermath, as well as new gameplay footage.

Those awaiting more news on the upcoming Mortal Kombat 11 expansion needn't wait any longer. NetherRealm Studios has provided further insight into the upcoming expansion, Mortal Kombat 11: Aftermath.

It was announced earlier this month that Mortal Kombat 11 would be getting a new expansion on May 26, introducing new characters Fujin, Sheeva, and the legendary crime-fighter, Robocop.

Alongside the character additions is a slew of new story and epilogue content, game modes, stages, and fatalities — all in one package. You can see the video update below, which features gameplay from each of the three characters being added to the roster, as well as footage from some of the new stages:

Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and NetherRealm Studios have also provided further insight into each of the new characters and their abilities.

Fujin

Fujin is the God of Wind and serves the Elder Gods alongside his brother, Raiden, as a Protector of Earthrealm. First playable in Mortal Kombat 4, he’s adept at inspiring goodness and heroism to conquer the forces of hatred and tyranny and fights to ensure Earthrealm’s bright future.

The immortal Fujin uses his sword and crossbow in combat and unleashes his powers as a God through a variety of wind-manipulating attacks to control his weapons, his movements and even his adversaries.

Sheeva

Sheeva is the four-armed, half-human, half-dragon queen of Outworld’s ancient Shokan race. First playable in Mortal Kombat 3, the powerful Shokan warrior leads her people in the quest to attain their rightful place as partners in Outworld’s rule.

The male Shokan once scoffed when Sheeva entered the contest to become their next leader, but after a resounding victory, she proved herself to be superior and was crowned the first queen of the Shokan.

The heavy hitting, master brawler employs her grappling fighting style to take down enemies and uses her faithful shield and unblockable teleport stomp to strike fear into the hearts of anyone who might oppose her.

Robocop

RoboCop, formerly known as Alex Murphy, was a dutiful police officer who was brutally executed by a local gang. Brought back to life through OCP technology, Murphy was transformed into RoboCop, a highly advanced cybernetic police officer designed to uphold the law and protect the innocent.

Now making his debut in the Mortal Kombat franchise, RoboCop has received a few upgrades and enters into battles equipped with a deadly arsenal of weapons, including his Auto 9 pistol. He also employs a flamethrower, riot shield and shoulder cannon that he can load with various types of ammunition to apprehend any Kombatants who stand in his way.

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.

The update is set to release on May 26 for all platforms, including PC, PS4, Xbox One, Switch, and Stadia. 

Existing players can pre-order the Aftermath expansion for $40 and also get the "Thanks a Million" Johnny Cage skin. Newcomers can pick-up the Mortal Kombat 11: Aftermath Kollection which features the base game, the Aftermath expansion, and previously released DLC for $60. A physical version will be available at a later unspecified date in June.

Additionally, the Aftermath + Kombat Pack Bundle is another option for $50.

Any player who preorders will receive the Eternal Klash Skin Pack at launch, which features three new character skin variants: 

  • “Unbound Rage” Scorpion inspired by Mortal Kombat (2011). 
  • “Son of Arctika” Sub-Zero inspired by Mortal Kombat: Deception.
  • “Kori Power” Frost, a Klassic version of the Lin Kuei warrior.

Mortal Kombat 11 is currently available for PC, PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and Stadia. For more on Mortal Kombat 11, be sure to keep an eye on GameSkinny. To see why we said the base game was "(nearly) a flawless victory," be sure to read our full review
