Now Playing: Mortal Kombat 11's Closed Beta Starts This Month - GS News Update

Mortal Kombat 11's character roster continues to grow. This week, NetherRealm confirmed that Kotal Kahn, the Emperor of Outworld, is a playable character. Unfortunately for Kotal fans, though, his reveal trailer inflicts some serious pain on the character.

The trailer focuses on a fight between Kotal and Jacqui Briggs, another returning character from MKX. And while we get to see some brutal Kotal transformations, it's Jacqui's moves that are really given the spotlight. We see her fatal blow and Fatality, leaving poor Kotal a bit beside himself. This is not how the reveal trailers usually go, so we expect to see Kotal's own moves detailed sometime later. Check out the trailer below.

Mortal Kombat 11 just ran a very limited online stress test, in preparation for its closed beta later this month. That one will run from March 28 through 31, and feature Scorpion, Skarlet, Jade, Kabal, and Baraka. It's open to anyone who pre-ordered on Xbox One or PS4. Putting your money down early on any platform will net you Shao Kahn as a playable character.

The game will release three editions: the standard game, a Premium Edition that comes with the Kombat Pack for extra characters and skins as they're released, and the Kollector's Edition that comes with all sorts of extra goodies. That one is exclusive to GameStop. For more detaills, check out our pre-order guide.

@lionheartssj1: I love the Mk games but I can wait for the complete edition. Charging $100 for everything is crazy when I buy a game I want the season pass as well and I’m going paying $100 though.
