As we highlighted a few days ago, Mortal Kombat 11 will have fatalities and brutalities very gore and spectacular . It is one of the most important aspects of this video game, and its makers, through the creative director Ed Boon , have confirmed that in this sequel the stacks have been put to make them more complex and spectacular.
Each Fatality is unique and the fruit of hard work
As Boon explained to Noclip – you have the video in the news – each Fatality is the fruit of a laborious conceptualization . To extract the maximum level of gore and spectacularity and coherence within the game, each movement is thought, developed and tried to fit in with the rest of the game. As a general rule, it is Boon himself who comes up with the movement and, once the rest of the team sees him, everyone begins to understand the tone and tone of his own, developing that idea.
As the director stresses, it is a process that takes months and numerous meetings in which everyone presents their idea of Fatality for the game, and then everyone else debates and votes. That is to say, although Boon plays a fundamental role, the whole team participates, votes, debates and presents their own ideas . In addition, although in Mortal Kombat 11 the level of gore and violence is still brutal, it is not about being unpleasant. NetherRealm seeks to be spectacular, add graphic effects that demonstrate the technology and present elements that help to understand the tone of the game or the sequel in question.

In Mortal Kombat 11 will continue right after the victory of Raiden on evil Ancient God Shinnok, a fact that has provoked the wrath of Kronika, the new villain. We remind you that the game arrives in Europe on April 23 on PC, PS4 and Xbox One , but Switch players will have to wait a couple of weeks, until May 10.
Two videos collect all known fatalities and brutalities
Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and Netherrealm Studios have shown today details the story mode of Mortal Kombat 11 , one of the most important aspects of this game. But what would become of Mortal Kombat without its fatalities and brutalities? From IGN they have wanted to compile them in two videos.
As we can see in the compilation, the graphics have managed to reach a level of realism in the quite impressive animations, allowing us to enjoy some very original Fatality , others extremely violent and absurd and several that would make the gore madness of Peter Jackson in Braindead pale with envy.
