Mortal Kombat 11's Rambo Gameplay Trailer Draws First Blood

Nothing is game over in Mortal Kombat 11 when Rambo defends Earthrealm.


Mortal Kombat 11 has a few more warriors to add to its roster including fan-favourite Mileena and Edenian demigod Rain. This week’s latest reveal is a grisly and brutal deep dive that showcases Sly Stallone's famous cinematic hero John Rambo in action. Earthrealm's grizzled war veteran is ready to draw first blood in this gameplay trailer, as he wields his trademark knife with surgical precision.

In the trailer below, Rambo has access to a cinematic arsenal of weapons. His trusty knife forms a key part of his offense, his bow can keep opponents at bay, and he can whip out a pair of heavy machine guns to create a massive gap between him and anyone on the opposite side of the screen. Rambo's fighting style revolves around the use of grapples and traps as well, while his fatality is a savage combination of bamboo, knives, and a throat rip finisher that would make the late Patrick Swayze proud.

Now Playing: Mortal Kombat 11 Ultimate - Official Rambo Gameplay Reveal Trailer

Developer NetherRealm's version of Rambo also has several of his outfits from Last Blood and Rambo 3 as cosmetic options, while Stallone himself was brought in to voice his famous action movie persona. If you want to see who the true king of the Hollywood box office really is, you can even face off against Stallone's greatest rival from the time, as Arnold Schwarzennegger is present in Mortal Kombat 11 as a playable version of the Terminator. Sadly, Arnie doesn't voice his digital doppelganger.

NetherRealm has said that the digital versions of these new characters will be the quickest way to access them, as the physical version of Mortal Kombat 11: Ultimate Edition that includes the new roster additions won't arrive until January 2021. On the plus side, you'll be able to upgrade your current-gen version of Mortal Kombat 11 to its PS5, Xbox Series X, and Xbox Series S version for free, and we've got a guide right here explaining how to.
