Geras is new and there were two more in the story trailer but they weren't in action, one has 4 arms and was standing next to Shao Kahn, his name is the Kollector and the other was the elder god we saw from the back her name is Cetrion, the boss Kronika is new as well but she's supposedly not playable. That's according to several leaks that came out before the characters were actually revealed in the trailer.

It looks like I would expect a good studio to do- continually get better at their craft. It's why Bethesda annoys me as a studio their growth is pretty stagnant, imo.
Yeah sadly a lot of studios don't seem to be able to make big jumps in graphical quality between games, NRS basically puts out a new fighting game every other year and they keep making big improvements. I was going to say the reason they can make such big jumps is because they are making fighting games which are smaller in scale but just about every other studio making fighting games hasn't made significant jumps graphically since last gen and even those weren't that big over the gen before.

I've used Kenshi as my main for years now. With this one i see myself trying Cage, Jade, and Kabal.

They've given Johnny some really funny between round winning animations, check out the one about :39 seconds in.

Raiden has been my main guy since MK1 in the arcade. I'm really amazed to see how he looks in MK11.

I also like Kung Lao, but I didn't feel comfortable with his combos or special moves. One weird nitpick is I liked his Buzzsaw Variation but not the modified hat, it looked weird. That is another reason I'm looking forward to all the customi variations in MK11.

I'm also a fan of Sektor, but I wonder if the cyborgs are coming back. Or if in MKX we had Triborg in this we'll have a general Robot with the custom favorite traits from Sektor, Cyrax, or Smoke?

Yeah, and No other fighter is so feature rich. NR just puts in way more work.

I know I've brought this up in other posts but someone on reddit posted this pic with more face comparisons between MKX and MK11 so I figured I'd post it here too lol.

Expecting epic crushing blows or fatal blows from Shao Khan. Or Brutalities.

I want this game now



Did you sign up to try to get into the online stress test? I never play online but I still signed up for it, I don't know when we are told if we got in or not but I hope I do, that means I'll get to try it at the end of the week.

My truck driving job schedule is to crazy. I lost track of the date or if I would even be able to get online for it.

I hope this game will just give us all Classic Fatalities. They gave it to Scorpion in MKX and again here as well as Kung Lao.

Yes, I want Raiden's MK1 head explode Fatality, though I'm basically okay with his second Fatality in this.

Also, while we see Cassie in this, I'm not seeing any indication of Takeda or Kung Jin. I wonder if they're already dead lol or if they even survived MKX.

If the leaked roster is true (which it seems to be) they aren't in this game, maybe as DLC? I would like to see them back, honestly I liked them better than Cassie and Jacqui.

I liked Cassie. She was probably my new favorite fighter. Kung Jin can go blow for all I care. I'm impartial to Jacqui and Takeda.

I figured Cassie would be the only one to come back of the Kombat Kids. Rest weren't very popular or interesting. Surprised by Jacqui being back.

I like Kung Jin and Takeda because they played a lot different than any other character on the roster, I also thought they had more interesting backstories than Cassie or Jacqui. Cassie looks like she's going to be fun to use in this game though so I'm fine with her being in, hopefully Jacqui got that same treatment as well, she sure as hell looks a lot better than the last game.

Got in some time on INJUSTICE 2 after a long break. My combos utterly suck from lack of practice and being used to MKX.

I played Raiden and swapped his skin to the red 'Demon' shader to make him Dark Raiden. It looks badass especially his dragon logo super and just makes me look forward to the new game more.

Also the Raiden vs. Raiden dialogue is interesting considering that apparently both Past and Future Raidens will exist in MK11.

And shows in that it out-performs conventional use of UE4. At least in fighters. I imagine if Epic themselves made something they could make it look incredible (remembering the Modeling and lighting in Paragon)...

You can see how much better the Render quality is on MK 11 vs Injustice 2.


The characters really sit in the environment much better, and the quality on the post procossessing is quite superior in MK 11. Not surprising it's better, but it is amazing how much more they are getting from these machines.

I really love how natural the edges on everything look. In Injustice, they still have some of that video game "hardness" to them where MK 11 looks sharp, but naturally so. Just fantastic.

A pretty cool video, shows Geras 2nd fatality which is pretty nasty.
