Mortal Kombat 11 Adding "Kombat League" With Ranked Seasons, Rewards
Kompete for kosmetics.
Mortal Kombat 11 is getting a significant addition to competitive play with an update coming on June 18. The "Kombat League" update will add a seasonal ranked mode with in-game rewards up for grabs.
In Kombat League, you can participate in ranked matches during four-week seasons to compete (ahem, kompete) your way across nine tiers of ranks. Those range from Apprentice to Elder God. Rewards are cumulative for all lower tiers, and you'll earn rewards based on the highest tier you reached during the season. The update will also add new daily and seasonal quests for more items. Once a season ends, the next one will start immediately so you can start grinding your way up to the next set of rewards. The first season is called the Season of Blood.
The matchmaking system will pair you up against players of similar skill levels as you improve and climb the ranks. The update will also add a new meter to give you a quick look at your chances of winning against an opponent when you begin a ranked match.
The Kombat League will be launching alongside Shang Tsung, the first of six planned DLC fighters. The studio has also revealed Spawn, Nightwolf, and Sindel are coming, but another DLC fighter reveal could be on the way.
