Mortal Kombat 11: Aftermath gameplay trailer

In the almost 4 minutes extended trailer, published on Mortal Kobmat’s social media handles, fans get an overview of the gameplay with the new characters.

Sheeva appears as a grappler/brawler, focused on getting close to her opponents to grab and stomp them with her classic moves. The classic moves can also turn into a Krushing Blow with a meter burn variant of the attack. We also see her throwing fireballs before stomping on the ground that strikes an opponent across the screen.

Fujin appears to be an aerial fighter. His meter burn seems to add further his wide range of aerial skillset. Using a projectile of wind, he draws an opponent closer and unleashes a sort of forward-moving, spinning kick. Fujin’s sword further adds to his arsenal. He uses it efficiently to strike down furiously on opponents around the stage, while in the air.

Meanwhile, RoboCop appears comfortable fighting from a distance, thanks to his futuristic stockpile. Pistols, guns, seeker missiles, stun grenades, a lethal sniper rifle, and a flamethrower he uses it all to take down opponents. Additionally, he can utilize his huge Robo-shield to prevent someone from rushing him and then use a counter-attack. We also see a brief cameo of the ED-209 peacekeeping machine.

Apart from the wide range of Stage Fatalities, the trailer also shows off new stages like Dead Pool, Soul Chamber, Kronika’s Keep, and RetroKade. These stages, along with certain stage fatalities, will be available in addition to Friendships in the free content update. It will drop with the release of Mortal Kombat 11: Aftermath.
