Just moments ago, Netherrealm Studio hosted their reveal party in Los Angeles, California for Mortal Kombat 11. There they showed some new in-game footage and revealed some nice tidbits about the new Custom Variation system. The system is very similar to Injustice 2‘s gear system where you can give characters alternate moves, abilities and costume sets. They also showed off the first seven characters including newcomer Geras, Sonya Blade, Baraka, Skarlet, Raiden, Scorpion and Sub-Zero.
Some new mechanics that were shown off included the Flawless Block which is a well-timed block that gives you frame advantage akin to a Just Defend or Parry. Another mechanic that has been tweaked is the Fatal Blow which was previously the X-Ray moves. It works similar to Tekken 7’s Rage Art where once your life reached 30% or less you can perform essentially your X-Ray move. Also, they have revamped the meter system. One horizontal meter will be for offensive properties like Meter Burn moves and such, while the vertical meter is for defensive properties. We’re about six weeks away from the release date on April 23, 2019. Take a look at all the footage from today’s reveal below:
