Mortal Kombat 11 was released on April 23, 2019 so it’s been over four years since a new game has been released. The story of Mortal Kombat 11 followed the events of Mortal Kombat X, with the game’s plot involving a time-traveling story that sees various characters from different eras fighting and interacting with each other. The game also includes a new “Custom Character Variation System” that allows players to customize their fighters with various skins, gear, and abilities.
