Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and NetherRealm Studios have unveiled a new Mortal Kombat 11 gameplay trailer featuring Kabal, a former Black Dragon enforcer turned Revenant.
Lookie, lookie I got Hookie!
Known for his lightning-fast speed, deadly Hook Swords and reliance on an artificial respirator for survival, Kabal was resurrected as a twisted, evil version of himself, who now serves the Netherrealm and pledges to destroy all other realms.
Mortal Kombat 11 is the latest installment in the critically-acclaimed franchise, developed by award-winning NetherRealm Studios, and will be available beginning on the 23rd of April for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 4 Pro, the Xbox One family of devices including the Xbox One X, Nintendo Switch and PC.
Eagle-eyed fans of NetherRealm Studios roster of games will notice that Kabal takes several notable cues from another warrior in their vault of fighters and it’s a surprising one. Kabal is basically the Flash, some of the mechanics even seem lifted from Injustice 2 which in my opinion is a little lazy on NetherRealms part.
Pre-order now to receive the in-game, playable character, Shao Kahn. Those who pre-order on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 4 Pro, Xbox One or Xbox One X at select retailers, will also receive access to the beta, which will be available on the 28th of March for those platforms.
