Mortal Kombat 11: Aftermath official gameplay trailer shows gruesome beatdowns and Robocop aiming below the belt

Last week’s Mortal Kombat 11: Aftermath official reveal trailer gave us a glimpse at the latest additions to the game: namely Fujin the God of Wind, Sheeva and Robocop, as well as all-new, DLC story-mode content.

Today, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and NetherRealm Studios released an official gameplay trailer showcasing the new characters in action, including their different abilities, move sets and visual styles.

More information on Sheeva, Robocop and Fujin, per the official Mortal Kombat 11: Aftermath press release:

  • Fujin is the God of Wind and serves the Elder Gods alongside his brother, Raiden, as a Protector of Earthrealm. First playable in Mortal Kombat 4, he’s adept at inspiring goodness and heroism to conquer the forces of hatred and tyranny and fights to ensure Earthrealm’s bright future. The immortal Fujin uses his sword and crossbow in combat and unleashes his powers as a God through a variety of wind-manipulating attacks to control his weapons, his movements and even his adversaries.
  • Sheeva is the four-armed, half-human, half-dragon queen of Outworld’s ancient Shokan race. First playable in Mortal Kombat 3, the powerful Shokan warrior leads her people in the quest to attain their rightful place as partners in Outworld’s rule. The male Shokan once scoffed when Sheeva entered the contest to become their next leader, but after a resounding victory, she proved herself to be superior and was crowned the first queen of the Shokan. The heavy hitting, master brawler employs her grappling fighting style to take down enemies and uses her faithful shield and unblockable teleport stomp to strike fear into the hearts of anyone who might oppose her.
  • RoboCop, formerly known as Alex Murphy, was a dutiful police officer who was brutally executed by a local gang. Brought back to life through OCP technology, Murphy was transformed into RoboCop, a highly advanced cybernetic police officer designed to uphold the law and protect the innocent. Now making his debut in the Mortal Kombat franchise, RoboCop has received a few upgrades and enters into battles equipped with a deadly arsenal of weapons, including his Auto 9 pistol. He also employs a flamethrower, riot shield and shoulder cannon that he can load with various types of ammunition to apprehend any Kombatants who stand in his way. RoboCop in Mortal Kombat 11: Aftermath features the voice and likeness of actor Peter Weller, who portrayed the popular character in both the original “RoboCop” (1987) film and “RoboCop 2” (1990) sequel.

Also featured in the video are the new Dead Pool, Soul Chamber, Kronika’s Keep and RetroKade Stages, as well as select Stage Fatalities, which will be available (along with Friendships) as a part of a FREE content update in conjunction with the Mortal Kombat 11: Aftermath release.

Also: We’re one step closer to realizing our Robocop vs. Terminator dreams. And we’re going to do it with this CyberNinja Robocop skin after the Terminator takes the first round.

The Mortal Kombat 11: Aftermath expansion will be available on May 26th for Playstation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PC formats.

Ninja Gaiden was my rite of passage at an early age. After finally beating that game (and narrowly dodging carpal tunnel) I decided to write about my gaming exploits. These days I enjoy roguelikes and anything Pokemon but I'll always dust off Super Mario RPG, Donkey Kong Country and StarFox 64 from time to time to bask in their glory.
