At The Game Awards 2018, Warner Bros. Interactive announced Mortal Kombat 11. The reveal featured a gory fight between Raiden and Scorpion which ended up in the latter's head being blown to bits through some charged electric attack. However, just when you think that the fight is over, a "modified" Scorpion shows up and kills Raiden in a few seconds.
Mortal Kombat 11 is expected to launch on Xbox One and other platforms on April 23, 2019, but if you preorder, you can gain access to the closed beta. The game comes in two main versions, one costing $59.99 and the other $99.99. If you own an Xbox One X, be sure to preorder it there because the game features enhancements for Microsoft's new console. There's also a collector's edition which contains a replica of Scorpion's mask in black and gold materials.
According to a report by WCCFtech, the developer is interested in adding cross-play to the game. This would allow gamers on Xbox One to play with PlayStation 4 and PC owners. The article said the following.
Hopefully cross-play will be added down the line. However, it's really up to Sony at this point because their cross-play system is still in the beta stage. Are you interested in Mortal Kombat 11? Let us know. It'll be interesting to see where the story takes us this time around.
