Today Netherealm announced Mortal Kombat 11: Aftermath, a huge new expansion that expands the story and adds one of the most iconic 90s heroes of all time.
The new MK11: Aftermath expansion is a pretty big deal for Mortal Kombat fans. Aftermath takes place after the events of the game's dazzling time-travelling narrative and spins a new tale as Fire God Liu Kang teams up with Shang Tsung, Sheeva, and other unlikely allies to battle it out against Kronika.

There's a handful of new playable characters that include Fujin, god of the wind, half-dragon Shokan fighter Sheeva, and RoboCop, who needs no real introduction. First we had Terminator, then Spawn joined the roster, and now RoboCop is in too.
RoboCop has his signature spike and massive futuristic gun combo to wreak total havoc. I personally can't wait to try him out.
"Mortal Kombat 11: Aftermath picks up right where Mortal Kombat 11 ends. Liu Kang has finished Kronika. He and Raiden are at the dawn of time, where they prepare to use Kronika's Hourglass to restart history. But those preparations are halted when some unexpected guests arrive - Fujin, Nightwolf, and Shang Tsung," Netherealm story director Dominic Cianciolo said on the PlayStation Blog.
"Liu Kang's only solution? To send Shang Tsung, Nightwolf, and Fujin back into the past to retrieve the Crown before Kronika can even possess it. It's a plan that's so crazy it just might work, if Liu Kang can keep Shang Tsung from double-crossing him..."
Friendships are also returning! Remember those? New fatalities will also be added, but they're not in every stage and they're quite secretive.
Aftermath will be sold separately for $39.99, and as part of the new Mortal Kombat 11: Aftermath Kollection, which includes the base game, Aftermath, and the most recent Kombat Pack for $59.99
