What is Mortal Kombat 11?
For those who don’t yet know what is Mortal Komabt 11 then it is a fighting video game developed by NetherRealm Studios and published by Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment. Running on the Unreal Engine it is the eleventh main installment in the Mortal Kombat series and a sequel to 2015’s Mortal Kombat X.

The game’s roster consists of 25 playable characters at launch. Along with series veterans including Baraka, Raiden, Scorpion, Sonya Blade and Sub-Zero, and others such as Skarlet, who returns from the 2011 reboot, four new fighters were introduced, three of whom are playable. Firstly, Kronika serves as the series’s first-ever female boss character, who has powers over the flow of time, and had been supervising the events of the timelines since the very beginning. She is not among the game’s playable characters. Playable fighters include Geras, a construct of Kronika, who, like her, has powers that allow him to control the flow of time, and produce sand-based attacks; Cetrion, an Elder Goddess with control over elemental forces, who is Shinnok’s sister and Kronika’s daughter; and Kollector, a six-armed tribute collector who serves the Outworld empire.
