It’s going to be a big week for Mortal Kombat 11. The previously announced community reveal event is slated for January 17, and it looks like it’ll be a big event you’ll want to watch.
In addition to premiering the first gameplay from Mortal Kombat 11, a description of the reveal event promises “exclusive reveals.” It’ll also contain details on the game’s story and characters, as well as some of its “new features.”

Whether or not there are any character reveals remains to be seen. Pennywise the killer clown from the It franchise is rumoured for the game, and given that the film comes from NetherRealm’s owner, Warner Bros., it seems like it could happen. An It sequel is also on the way in 2019, and putting Pennywise in Mortal Kombat 11–which is also due out in 2019–could help promote the film. This is all speculation at this point, however.
The event will be broadcast live, and you’ll be able to watch on Twitch and other streaming sites. Check back later for more on how, when, and where to watch the event.
Mortal Kombat 11 launches on April 23 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, and Nintendo Switch, and those who pre-order a copy will receive Shao Kahn as a playable character.
Pre-orders on PS4 and Xbox One also come with access to the fighting game’s pre-launch beta. The test will be held for those two platforms sometime in March, although further details have yet to be announced.
