about X hours ago from

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.

Mortal Kombat 11's Story And Towers Should Have Solo Players Excited

Mortal Kombat 11's Story And Towers Should Have Solo Players Excited

When I think about my own history with Mortal Kombat, it was all about beating my brother or friends one-on-one so I could finish them with a savage fatality in MK3. It revolved around a light-hearted sense of competition wrapped in a disgustingly hilarious gore-filled fighting game. By no means has that been lost in Mortal Kombat 11, but it's not necessarily the thing I'm most excited about. Even as I pay closer attention to the FGC and find pro-level play ever-fascinating, it's the single-player content that I'm eager to jump into.

During a preview event in Chicago, Illinois--home to developer NetherRealm Studios--I had the opportunity to spend about two hours with Mortal Kombat 11's latest playable build. This included a roster of familiar faces such as Johnny Cage, Cassie Cage, and Kano in addition to the playable characters available during January's reveal event. But this time, I got a taste of the game's story mode and Towers of Time challenges, and messed around with Variations and customization. Considering the pedigree of NetherRealm and the breadth of content Injustice 2 packed in, it doesn't come as much of surprise that MK11 follows suit.
