At the Mortal Kombat 11 Reveal event, eight characters were confirmed for the roster so far, including fan favorites Sub-Zero and Scorpion.
The eight characters are Sub-Zero, Scorpion, Sonya Blade, Skarlet, Baraka, Raiden, Geras, with Shao Kahn being available as a pre-order bonus.
There were 25 character slots shown in the livestream, and we had our first look at new time-manipulating character Geras who can also utilize the power of sand.
Geras is a powerful and loyal servant of Kronika, who was shown off in a preview of the game’s story mode.
NetherRealm studios also confirmed that UFC champion Ronda Rousey would be voicing Sonya Blade, a character who has been with the franchise since the beginning.
More characters and information will be revealed at Kombat Kast on January 30, and the event was teased with a quick glimpse at another new character who may or may not be Kabal.
Mortal Kombat 11 will be released on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, and Nintendo Switch on April 23, 2019, and arrives with a Kollector’s Edition that includes MK11, the Kombat Pack, a Scorpion mask bust, steel case, coin, and more.
