Now Playing: Mortal Kombat 11's First Official Kombat Kast Livestream By NetherRealm Studios

NetherRealm Studios has confirmed two more characters--Kabal and D'Vorah--will be in Mortal Kombat 11. Following a tease in January, Kabal was fully revealed during the first Kombat Kast, a regular livestream dedicated to the brutal fighting game. According to Mortal Kombat co-creator Ed Boon, Kabal is the first of a few fan-favorite characters that will be added to the roster. In the trailer for him, which you can watch below, Kabal is shown with his iconic meat hooks and puts his Nomad Dash to good use.

At one point he's shown running off one side of the screen and appearing on the other to deliver his bone-crushing hook slam. He also has his buzz saw blades, which will be handy in controlling space and movement. His Fatality, meanwhile, involves grabbing the enemy and running at high speed with them in tow, before using his hooks to cut them in half.

During the Kombat Kast, Ed Boon also teased the guest character, saying people will "freak out" when they see it. However, he stopped short of announcing the character.

As part of a subsequent Inside Xbox stream, Boon confirmed that D'Vorah, a character that made her debut in Mortal Kombat X, will also be in Mortal Kombat 11. However, we didn't get to see or hear much more about her. Presumably we'll receive more details in a later Kombat Kast. We know the next one is scheduled for February 14.

Mortal Kombat 11 was officially announced during The Game Awards, but it was fully unveiled on January 23, when NetherRealm showed off gameplay from it and revealed a few characters. Naturally, Scorpion and Sub-Zero are returning, along with Raiden, Sonya Blade, and Baraka. However, one new character added to the roster is Geras, who is capable of manipulating the time on the clock.

Since the full reveal, NetherRealm has also shared details about Mortal Kombat 11's story, which takes place after the events of 2015's Mortal Kombat X and involves time travel of some sort. Of course, NetherRealm also showed off a few of the gruesome new fatalities in the game. You can see all the characters announced for Mortal Kombat 11 so far here.
