The latest DLC coming to Mortal Kombat 11 is “Aftermath,” and it brings the first story expansion to the game along with new fighters, including Robocop. It will launch for the PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, PC, and Stadia on May 26.
The most important part of this DLC is, by far, the story expansion. It picks up where the original story left off. Liu Kang will team up with an old foe and other classic characters to rebuild history after defeating Kronika at the end of the game. You can see the basic gist of it in the trailer we’ve embedded above.
Along with the massive story expansion, there will be some new characters added to the game. The most important of which is, arguably, Robocop, who’s likeness and voice is portrayed by none other than the original actor, Peter Weller. You’ll also get Fujin – the God of Wind and Raiden’s brother – and Sheeva, the Queen of the Shokan race with four arms.
The downside to this is that it’s one of the most expensive DLCs in recent memory, with a starting price of $39.99 or £34.99 for the expansion by itself. If you haven’t already purchased the Kombat pack, you can get it bundled in with the Aftermath DLC for $49.99 or £39.99. Finally, if you don’t own the game yet, you can buy the Aftermath Kollection, which bundles the game, Kombat Pack, and Aftermath for $59.99 or £49.99. The price feels a little high to us, but it seems as if the story expansion is akin to that of a sequel, so maybe the price is justified – we’ll find out more about that once the DLC launches. You can pre-order any of the aforementioned packs right now, and if you do you’ll get the free character skin pack. If you’re a Stadia player, you can’t pre-order, though.
On that note, there’s also a free update that will launch alongside Aftermath with some commonly requested features. There will be new stages that include Dead Pool and Soul Chamber arenas, to go with Stage Fatalities that will update how you can use the environment to murder your opponents, and Friendships are coming back too. Well keep you up to date as more information about Aftermath is released.
