NetherRealm Studios has shared the first gameplay for Shao Kahn in Mortal Kombat 11. He has been the main villain in some of the previous Mortal Kombat games so it is great to play as him in this new entry.
Shao Kahn uses a large hammer to thrash his opponents. His fatality though, takes the cake, when it comes to the absurdity and gore given in it. Watch how he kills Raiden at the end in his first gameplay trailer.
Shao Kahn will be a pre-order bonus for Mortal Kombat 11. Goro was one of the pre-order bonus characters for Mortal Kombat 10 so this is a not a new practice by Warner Bros. Interactive.
Here is an official bio which was given by the publisher for Shao Khan in Mortal Kombat 11. It should provide an insight into his role in the story.
Shao Kahn, the unchallenged and arrogant Emperor of Outworld ruthlessly controls his realm. With a lust for power driving him from one conquest to the next, Shao Kahn relentlessly pursues the expansion of his empire using his influence and sheer strength to ensure victory.
Mortal Kombat 11 will be out on April 26, 2019, for the PS4, Xbox One, PC, and Nintendo Switch.
