Mortal Kombat 11 is the latest ultra brutal fighter from Netherrealm Studios. Many klassic kombatants have returned, along with a number of fresh faces. Brutalities and Fatalities, of course, make their return to the series. New to the franchise are Fatal Blows and Krushing Blows. Fatal Blows can be performed once per match whenever a player falls below 30 percent health. Needless to say, there’s a lot to wrap your head around. But don’t worry! That’s why we’re here to help with our Mortal Kombat 11 character list — as well as all of our individual guides to each fighter. Check below for more info!

Other than this key difference, Fatal Blows are extremely similar to X-Ray moves from Mortal Kombat (2011) and Mortal Kombat X. Krushing Blows, meanwhile, are just souped-up versions of special moves. You perform them automatically when certain conditions are met during the match! For instance, Noob Saibot gets a Krushing Blow every 10 times he deploys any version of his shadow clone (which happens quite a lot).
Flawless Blocks also make their debut in Mortal Kombat 11, as perfectly timed blocks that allow the player to follow up with more devastating attacks than after normal blocks.
Use our character guides to improve with your favorite kombatants. Check back frequently up through the release date of Mortal Kombat 11 for more information about each character.

New Characters – Mortal Kombat 11 Roster
Of course, every big, new fighting game needs new additions to its roster. Mortal Kombat 11 is no exception. A number of new playable characters have appeared on the Mortal Kombat 11 roster. You can find all of them below, along with links to their specific character guides elsewhere on the site.
That’s all we know for now, folks! But be sure to check back later for more new characters and potential leaks. Netherrealm also has a long history of adding tons of DLC fighters — not to mention zany guest characters — in all of its games. So we surely haven’t seen the last of what the Mortal Kombat 11 roster has to offer. Until we know more, though, please enjoy the list we have now. We hope it will help decide your main in the full game!
