WB Games Revealed Mortal Kombat 11 Ultimate With New Characters

Finally, after hordes of screaming fans chewed them out for over a year, Mortal Kombat 11 Ultimate will give them what they want… kinda. With the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X on the way, NetherRealm Studios and WB Games will be releasing MK11U as a major update for both current-gen owners as well as a full definitive version of the game for both next-gen consoles. This version of the game will release across every platform it's on and the new consoles on November 17th, 2020. The three major character additions to this are the long-awaited Mileena, the returning Rain, and… Rambo?

Yes, you read that right. After hearing nothing but complaints from Mileena fans since the game was first revealed, the mutated half-sister of Kitana is back in the game. With a slight change in appearance like Kitana received this game to match her to some degree. Along with the Edenian prince Rain, who appears to have gotten himself a new bladed toy and a few new tricks with his water skills. And, for who the hell knows why other than they had the license, John Rambo from First Blood and other Rambo titles has been added in. So unless there's going to be a Kombat Pack 3 we're not being told about yet, it looks like the dreams of having Ash from Evil Dead is officially off the table.

Pre-orders will start on October 15th for $60 for the full game, and players who already own the game can pre-order Kombat Pack 2 the same day for $15. Current owners can also purchase Kombat Pack 1 for $20- and the Aftermath expansion for $40. Those who pre-order will get the Time Warriors Skin Pack at launch featuring three new character skin variants, including "Dark Web" Noob Saibot, "HCF" (Halt and Catch Fire) Liu Kang, and "Blood Moon" Skarlet.
