Mortal Kombat is one of the most popular video game series in the world, and millions of fans already anticipate the upcoming Mortal Kombat 11.
As the launch date is getting closer, more characters are being shown by NetherRealm, the developers of the game. Three fan-favorite characters, namely, Liu Kang, Kung Lao, and Jax, have been shown recently during the PlayStation State of Play event which took place last week.
Cetrion is the second brand new fighter that would debut in Mortal Kombat 11
Cetrion, the latest character which joins the roster, has been officially unveiled by a reliable source. The fighter is an Elder God who has the power to manipulate nature. Cetrion’s opponents will have to face severe threats since Cetrion can immobilize them with the help of vines and smash some bones with conjured boulders.
A teaser video showcases a few of her moves including one of the Fatalities. When the Fatality is triggered, Cetrion will become as big as Earth, and a powerful energy ray will obliterate her enemies.
Cetrion is the second entirely new original character announced by NetherRealm, with the first one being Geras, a servant of the main antagonist of the game. While Geras isn’t a god, he packs a few punches. He can manipulate time and sand, and his moves are quite impressive.
There will be 25 fighters in Mortal Kombat 11 plus several DLC characters, including Shang Tsung
The base roster will offer 25 characters, but NetherRealm has mentioned that several DLC characters will be provided. One of them will include Shang Tsung, one of the most iconic fighters in the game. As a homage, the style of the character is based on Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa, who played Shang Tsung’s role in the 1995 Mortal Kombat Movie. An extra character is available for those who pre-order Mortal Kombat 11.
The game will be available for PS4, Xbox One, PC, and Nintendo Switch starting with April 23rd. Mortal Kombat 11 will offer new features, and one of them is the ability to customize a particular character by selecting your favorite moves and fatalities. Some argue that custom move sets will ruin the competitive scene and it remains to be seen if they will be allowed in official tournaments.
