Mortal Kombat 11 has already featured a ton of recognizable faces from the breadth of the entire series, and more returning characters have appeared. Erron Black, Cassie Cage, and Jacqui Briggs–all characters who made their first appearances in Mortal Kombat X–feature prominently in a new story trailer and have been confirmed as playable fighters.
The trailer focuses on Kronika and her attempts to fix the rift being caused by Raiden by drawing together multiple realities in order to reset the timeline. That brings in some recognizable characters we know from the series like Johnny Cage, along with newer additions that just appeared for the first time in the last game. The trailer shows each of the newly announced characters in story sequences, as well as brief snippets of what would appear to be their fatalities.
Cassie Cage is the daughter of Sonya Blade and Johnny Cage, while Jacqui Briggs is the daughter of Jax. Erron Black is an Outworld gunslinger and mercenary. Cassie will be shown in more detail during the Kombat Kast on March 6 at 1 PM PT / 4 PM ET. For now you can watch the story trailer above.
NetherRealm is planning an online stress test for March 15-17. That test will be closed and only available to select players in the US, and only for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions. Another beta test will be coming from March 28-31, which will be open for Xbox One and PS4 pre-orders. Pre-ordering also gets you Shao Kahn as a playable character. Once the full game releases on April 23, it will come to those platforms along with PC and Nintendo Switch.
