Mortal Kombat XI
A possible leak that popped on 4Chan today claims that the next Mortal Kombat game, Mortal Kombat XI, will bring new playable characters, animations, game modes, and more. Spotted by Rodjer from ResetEra, the leak from 4Chan’s video game board claims the upcoming title will be revealed at The Game Awards 2018 event that will take place in Los Angeles next week.
Allegedly, the leak originates from a QA tester within Netherrealm Studios, the studio behind Mortal Kombat and Injustice games. The leaker claims that animations in Mortal Kombat XI are much better than its predecessor, and that developers are using Unreal Engine 4 instead of Unreal Engine 3.
The new title supposedly also has an extraordinarily long development process of 4 years, one of which is reserved for concept development alone. The leak also states that development on the concept began during Mortal Kombat X’s development phase, as the games were “always thought back to back games in terms of story”.
Speaking of story, Mortal Kombat XI’s story mode revolves around these characters: ‘Punishing Raiden’, ‘Emperor Liu Kang’, ‘Empress Kitana’, and ‘Shang Tsung’ and ‘Reiko’. The game also has a proper adventure mode, which features a new style of gameplay with heaps of character customization. The leaker claims the game includes “boxes” containing cosmetics, hinting that microtransactions might make an appearance.
All of this information is based on a leak, and 4Chan rumors are not always accurate. The leak claims that the Mortal Kombat title in question will be announced during The Game Awards 2018, which is just around the corner.
