Mortal Kombat 11 is launching next week and everyone wants to know more about the story. Different versions of our favorite fights clash in the sequel, but it's unclear how that happens. Luckily, the launch trailer sheds some light into what's going on.

It appears that the plot of the latest game involves time travel. This is what allows players to interact with fighters from the past, as well as various iterations of characters like Scorpion and Raiden. The publisher issued the following statement about the plot of Mortal Kombat 11.

Kronika, the Keeper of Time, signals for a new era to begin as she tries to rewind time to its beginning and restart history. In order to restore balance to the realms, players must take on the role of numerous fighters from different eras, culminating in the ultimate generational clash as current characters collide with their past selves.

You'll be able to play as Scorpion, Raiden, Sub-Zero, Sonya Blade, Skarlet, Baraka, Geras, Kano, D'Vorah, Kabal, Jade, Johnny Cage, Cassie Cage, Erron Black, Jacqui Briggs, Kotal Kahn, Noob Saibot, Liu Kang, Kung Lao, Jax Briggs, Cetrion, The Kollector, Kitana, and Shao Kahn.

Mortal Kombat 11 will be available on April 23, starting at $60. However, if you want the complete experience, you should purchase the $100 Premium Edition (opens in new tab) which comes with the character pass and other content.
