We had a blast and got a hands on experience with Mortal Kombat 11. The gameplay is alot better than Mortal Kombat XL.
Mortal Kombat 11 gameplay is more refined and technical than X. Tournament players like Sonic Fox and many more will embrace them. There was a Mortal Kombat 11 live stream this week. Showcasing some characters like Baraka, Scarlet, Sub-Zero, Geras and Scorpion. Ed Boon and NeatherRealm Studios pulling out all the stop. MK11 live stream was not all about announcing characters and features. Tournament players got in on the action. Commentators give an explanation on the game. MK11 is far different than Mortal Kombat X. There is no meter building or run button (there is no need for it). X-ray is renamed with “Fatal Blow”. Fatal blow indicates went player’s health is 25%. On the right and left hand corner, there are offense/defense bar. Offense operates like an Overwatch skill move with cooldown. Defense is the same as offense bar.
Offense/defense bar is triggered by ex attacks, environment interaction and combo break. Also defense roll in the air and many more. Fatalities are more gruesome than ever before. MK11 graphics are well-polished and in-depth HD. Character designs is more realistic and life-like than past game. Mortal Kombat 11 may have more features in the coming development. Variations can be customize and still a factor in MK11. In one video, there is tower mode like previous game. Players can use items to gain an edge in battle. I think it’s a possibility for Tag-Team mechanic coming in Mortal Kombat 11. Mortal Kombat (2011 video game) had 2vs2 and it was fun. We will have to wait and see for more news.
