Mortal Kombat 11 Ultimate Is Out Now, New Launch Trailer Features Rambo, Rain, And Mileena
That's a whole lot of new Kontent.
Mortal Kombat 11 Ultimate is out now, and with it comes a substantial amount of new content to developer NetherRealm's 2019 fighting game. In addition to the base game, the Ultimate edition also includes the Aftermath campaign and all previously released DLC fighters. This release also the content from the standalone DLC Kombat Pack 2, which adds Edenian warrior Rain, grizzled war veteran John Rambo, and Kitana's toothy clone Mileena to the game.
For newcomers, this version of Mortal Kombat 11 has a roster of 37 fighters in total. This includes the 25 characters that the game originally came with and the following warriors from Kombat Pack 1: Shang Tsung, The Terminator, Nightwolf, Sindel, The Joker, and Spawn. Mortal Kombat 11 Ultimate also includes all the new stages that were released and Friendship finishers.
This collection of content will also make its way to PS5, Xbox Series X, and Series S, and no matter which console platform you're playing Mortal Kombat 11 on, you'll be able to fight your friends and perform gruesome Fatality finishers on them thanks to "Kross Generation" technology. This feature will sadly not make its way to the Nintendo Switch or PC versions of the game.
On next-gen consoles, NetherRealm says that the game will feature enhanced visuals such as 4K dynamic resolution support, improved loading times, and more.
If you already own Mortal Kombat 11, you can get a free next-gen upgrade within the same console family. This also applies to the Ultimate edition.
Players who already own Mortal Kombat 11 can upgrade to the Ultimate's edition contents by purchasing any DLC (such as Kombat Pack 2) that they don't already own.
"MK11 isn't just a sequel for series fans and NetherRealm devotees, it's a gateway into the realm of fighting games for anyone who has a passing interest in watching ruthless warriors beat each other silly," critic Edmond Tran wrote in our Mortal Kombat 11 review.
