Mortal Kombat 11 Gameplay – How does it play?

The eleventh instalment will include much of the fast, combo-driven gameplay fans have come to expect from Mortal Kombat, and that means more of the delicious amounts of bloody violence that has gone on to define it. However, a few new features are on the way.

Similar to Injustice 2, a robust character customisation system will be introduced that allows you to alter the appearance of characters with new pieces of equipment, weapons and other things. We imagine these will once again be obtained through loot-box style unlockables like Injustice before it.

The cosmetic system is accompanied by some gameplay improvements including the introduction of two new moves: Fatal Blow and Krushing Blow. Fatal Blows are capable of dealing massive damage once an opponent’s health falls below 30%, providing an easy way to secure a victory.

Krushing Blows are cinematic variants of specific special moves which are triggered when certain requirements are met. It seems both of these new additions will add extra strategy and flair to proceedings. Finally, you have Flawless Block. This allows you to make a comeback if attacks are blocked within a certain window of time.
