Mortal Kombat 11 Friendships return in the latest installment of the other-worldly franchise. Ed Boon of NetherRealm Studios dropped a bombshell on Twitter this past Wednesday, announcing that the story of Mortal Kombat 11 will continue with the update titled - Mortal Kombat 11: Aftermath.
Releasing May 26 on all digital platforms (PSN, Xbox Live, Steam), the fan-favorite game with one of the best netcode offerings in the fighting game genre will also be returning Friendships to the fray, alongside other content such as new characters, stage fatalities, and a continuation of the Story Mode.
Mortal Kombat 11 Friendships Return
Friendships, a finishing move dating back to Mortal Kombat II, is a finishing move in the same vein as the franchise defining Fatalities. Instead of brutally murdering your opponent, the player performs a hilarious display of goodwill, each specific to the character of choice. What we have seen so far - such as Noob Saibot’s Friendship - is nothing short of spectacular, and looks extremely well-done.
Mortal Kombat 11 launched initially with Fatalities, Brutalities (activated by meeting certain in-game conditions), and Mercy, the latter actually prolonging the match in a gigantic display of player hubris and humiliation, by reviving your opponent and giving them 20% of their life bar in return.
