Publisher Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and developer NetherRealm Studios have announced more playable characters for Mortal Kombat 11.
Liu Kang, Kung Lao, and Major Jackson “Jax” Briggs are returning in the upcoming sequel. Featured above, a new trailer dubbed “Old Skool vs. New Skool” was revealed, showing off a mix of both old and current fighters in the Mortal Kombat universe.
Here’s a rundown on each character:
- Liu Kang – The greatest of the Shaolin monks, was an orphan adopted and trained in the arts of combat by the Shaolin order. He was handpicked by Raiden to be Earthrealm’s Mortal Kombat champion and chief defender.
- Kung Lao – He joined the Shaolin monks in a quest to become Earthrealm’s new Mortal Kombat champion. Reckless and rebellious, but courageous and indomitable, Kung Lao fights to prove worthy of his glorious ancestors.
- Major Jackson “Jax” Briggs – He was a decorated veteran of the Special Forces whose life changed forever when he fought in the Mortal Kombat tournament. His duty was now clear—he would defend Earthrealm against Outworld and the Netherrealm.
Mortal Kombat 11 is launching for Windows PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Switch on April 23rd.
