A new Mortal Kombat 11 Aftermath gameplay trailer was released today, showcasing new characters, new stages, stage fatalities, and friendships. This post-launch story expansion will release in digital format on May 26, 2020. It will mark the first time the Mortal Kombat series has seen a full-on expansion like this. Here’s a look at the new Mortal Kombat 11 Aftermatch characters.
Mortal Kombat 11 Aftermath Characters
Three new characters have been added to the game, one of which is a brand new face to the MK universe. The new fighters have a big role in the evolving story, which involves time traveling to change history and future timelines.
The first new Mortal Kombat 11 Aftermath character is Robocop, a new face to the game. That’s right, the action movie character has joined the MK11 roster. The original actor to play Robocop (1987), Peter Weller, is also voicing the role in this game. Robocop utilizes missiles, a flamethrower, riot shields, and his classic pistol.
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 entering the Mortal Kombat universe, RoboCop has received a few upgrades and is ready to serve the public by apprehending any Kombatants that stand in his way.
Sheeva, popular from Mortal Kombat 3, is back with her powerful grabs and throws. She has an unblockable teleport stomp, making her an annoying foe to face.
The male Shokan scoffed when Sheeva entered their contest to choose the Shokan’s next leader. But Sheeva proved herself more than their equal. After a resounding victory, she was crowned the first Queen of the Shokan. As Queen, Sheeva now leads her people in the fight to attain their rightful place, as partners in Outworld’s rule.
Fujin is Raiden’s wind god brother who first made an appearance back in Mortal Kombat 4. He uses a crossbow and a sword, along with the power of wind by his side.
The God of Wind, Fujin serves the Elder Gods alongside his brother, Raiden, as Protectors of Earthrealm. Affable and lighthearted, he’s adept at inspiring peoples’ innate capacity for goodness and heroism to conquer forces of hatred and tyranny. Fujin believes Earthrealm’s best days are still to come, and he fights to ensure that bright future.
