It's a story as old as the internet. A game retailer receives from the publisher details about upcoming games in order to prepare the store page for that title and, maybe by mistake or superficiality, the page gets published early, revealing some still undisclosed details about the game. This time around, it was GameStop Italy that fell into the trap, unleashing on the web some unrevealed details about Mortal Kombat 11.
The page containing the information has been promptly removed, but not before it was archived by the users. Below you will find the text that appeared on the site translated in English by yours truly:
Mortal Kombat is back and it's more in shape than ever in this new and fantastic evolution of the iconic title. Now you can customize the variants of your fighters to the smallest details, acquiring an unprecedented control over the characters' appearance. The new graphic engine renders to full detail every crushed skull and ripped heart, immersing you in the action of the most gory scenes. Additionally, the new roster includes both new entries and the series' Klassics, starring in fantastic cutscenes in the story mode of the epic saga that has been going for more than 25 years.Judging by this text, it would seem that Mortal Kombat 11 will be packed of features that can make happy both casual gamers and longtime fans of the series. The new graphics engine will be welcome to fans, especially with the new custom fighter creation tools that are part of Mortal Kombat 11.
- New graphics engine, with more gory and bloody scenes than ever - New customization system with never seen clothes, accessories and move sets - New fatalities and a new "GoreTech" system to make the executions even more brutal - Strong multiplayer component, completely eSports oriented: customization systems, daily news, ever changing rewards and improved matchmaking
Additional content: The premium edition includes: - Steelcase - Kombat Pass : 6 characters and 6 Battlepass
As we all know, fighting games thrive on their roster so it's unsurprising that the game will feature new characters as well as the classic fighters we all know and love. What's interesting is that we now know the number of characters to be released post-launch. The game will feature 6 DLC characters judging by what's included in the Kombat Pass at least in its first season.
While we still have very little knowledge of Mortal Kombat 11 so close to the announcement, this involuntary leak from Italian GameStop sheds some light on the new chapter of the series.
