Delighting the players with Mortal Kombat 11 and its subsequent expansion pack Aftermath, NetherRealm Studios does not miss the new generation. Let's examine the Mortal Kombat 11 Ultimate version together, which collects all the old content as well as the new generation update and a lot of new features.
Mortal Kombat 11 Ultimate does not add any new content as a story. In the main game Mortal Kombat 11, we can experience Kronika's efforts to reset the time by eliminating Raiden and the struggle of characters from two different times against both themselves and their enemies. Aftermath, on the other hand, allows us to experience the struggle of the watchman of time to protect the future, in the continuation of the original script.
Mortal Kombat 11 is the longest game in the series with a story mode of about 8 hours. Considering that an average of 6 - 7 hours of story is added with Aftermath, you can spend more than 15 hours even in story mode alone. It is a mode that you can play / watch with great pleasure, like an action movie where you can interfere with the fight scenes. I recommend it to all players who have passed the story before or bought the game for the first time.
Mortal Kombat 11 Ultimate opens up all the characters that were added to the game before. 34 fighting rivals are ready for us to beat, including characters from the world of Mortal Kombat, as well as guest characters such as Spawn, Robocop, Joker and Terminator. But that's not enough characters, 3 new fighters are stepping into the arena with the new package. Alongside the ex-fighters of the series, Mileena and Rain, the third name is Rambo, who is familiar to almost everyone!
Mileena, one of Shao Kahn's daughters, created thanks to Shang Tsung's experiments, was a character that fans of the series had wanted to come for a long time. Demigod Rain, on the other hand, was a character that we saw and expected to come when he used Shang Tsung's techniques and wandered in the Krypt. I didn't play for a long time because I didn't like either character very much, but I can't pass without praising Rain's Queen-themed Fatality.
Speaking of loading screens, let's start with the first advantage of the new generation. When you play with Playstation 5 or Series X / Series S, you almost do not even see the loading screen. The fights, which are loaded in about 10 seconds with Playstation 4, are loaded until you close your eyes on new generation consoles. An advantage that will prevent your hand from getting cold.
Visually, there is no improvement on older generation consoles. Playstation 4 Pro or Xbox One X users were already able to play in near 4K quality. With the dynamic 4K resolution coming to the new generation consoles, you can watch the cutscenes in the story mode in 4K, and you can see the details in the game in more detail. Since each frame is important in fighting games, it is also very important that the graphics improvements do not affect the frame-rate. Mortal Kombat 11 Ultimate manages to offer enhanced visuals without any problems in this regard. While there is not much visual improvement when you go through the PS4 Pro or Xbox One X versions, those who switch from regular consoles can see the difference.
The last feature that came with the Playstation 5 version was the use of DualSense's haptic feedback feature. When the opponent hits you, vibration comes from the direction you took the damage. It is discussed how necessary it is for the fighting game, how useful it is in the competitive arena where the seconds of movements are important. A nice thought though, it can be a different experience, especially in story mode.
The character that caught my attention the most in the pack was Rambo, voiced by Sylvester Stallone himself. I really enjoyed using our new character, who was included in Mortal Kombat from the 80's movies with his weapons, traps and arrows. I'm not very effective in online arenas since I haven't played in a long time, so I haven't been able to test how well it is against other characters. After all, it's a fun experience to pit legends of my childhood like Rambo, Terminator and Robocop against each other. Details such as the dialogues when he encounters Robocop, and when he does Brutality he takes his bag and returns home from the portal that opens, are very nice. (It's probably also obvious that I'm a fan of Rambo movies)
There is no new game mode added to the game with Mortal Kombat 11 Ultimate. You can linger on your own for a long time in game modes such as Tower of Time, Klassic Towers, and Krypt that the game has, and you can customize your character according to yourself with the things you collect from here. In addition to the visual customization of the characters, you also have the chance to customize the attacks and special moves according to your wishes. You can stay at the beginning of the game for a long time even just by chasing cosmetics.
Mortal Kombat 11 Ultimate isn't just a combination of 3 new characters and old packs. There are innovations that affect both the new generation consoles and the previous generation. Let's talk about them in turn.
If you are using one of the Playstation 4 or Xbox One consoles, you have cross-play support as well as new characters. Thanks to the cross-play options that you can turn on, you have the opportunity to play with players playing on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X and Series S consoles. PC and Nintendo versions are not included in this support. I did not experience any connection problems in the cross-platform matches I played. I think the biggest problem with the new generation consoles may be the old generation players waiting on the loading screen.
Before we finish, let's agree on a matter. Mortal Kombat 11 Ultimate isn't a new game, it's a bundled version of previously released base game and add-on packs. It is possible to purchase all the contents in it separately. This package is a version that has been prepared with new entrants in mind and includes Kombat Pack 2 with new characters.
Mortal Kombat 11 Ultimate, which significantly shortens the loading times on the new generation consoles, brings cross-play support and offers all the packages that have been released before, is a great package for players who will enter the series. Considering that only Mortal Kombat 11 was sold for 350 TL on PSN, PS4 / PS5 versions together with all the previously released content is a good offer for 399 TL. However, if you have the opportunity, you may want to check out the more convenient PC version.
If you have previously purchased Mortal Kombat 11 and Aftermath, you do not need to purchase this pack to play the next-gen version. You can upgrade your old games to the Playstation 5 version for free and play the game without any problems. If you want new characters, you can also purchase Kombat Pack 2 separately.
