In a move nobody saw coming (particularly the gents at OCP or the Detroit Police Department), RoboCop’s coming to Mortal Kombat 11 as a new guest fighter in the game’s upcoming Aftermath expansion.
Officer Murphy will be joined by Mortal Kombat alumni Fujin (a God like Raiden, who was first introduced in Mortal Kombat 4) and the multi-armed Sheeva, who made her debut in Mortal Kombat 3.
All of the new Kombatants will join the fray when Aftermath expansion releases on May 26 2020.
It’s a bit pricey though, with the standalone expansion package going for US$39.99 on the US PSN store (it’s not available on other storefronts but expect it to be similarly priced).
There’s also another bundle that comes with the Kombat Pack (which adds 6 characters to the game) and the Aftermath expansion, which goes for a more palatable US$49.99.
Finally, there’s the Aftermath Kollection, which has the base game, the Kombat Pack and the Aftermath expansion for US$59.99. That’s probably the best value but it certainly screws over early adopters who have the base game and Kombat Pack.
As expected for an expansion, Mortal Kombat Aftermath picks up after the events of Mortal Kombat 11 (read our review of it here), which sees Liu Kang ascend to Godhood, becoming the Keeper of Time and the new protector of Earthrealm.
Judging from the trailer, not everything’s going as planned and now Liu Kang will have to team up with Shang Tsung (voiced by Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa, who played the character in the awesome Mortal Kombat movie).
For those who don’t want to get the Aftermath expansion yet, there’ll also be a free update incoming which adds free stage fatalities and friendship finishers. That’ll come a day after Aftermath comes out, on May 26 2020.
As always, you can bet that we’ll be reviewing this expansion so keep your eyes tuned to the site after it launches!
