Cassie Cage, Jacqui Briggs, and Errron Black will be playable in Mortal Kombat 11, publisher Warner Bros. Interactive and developer NetherRealm Studios announced alongside the release of a new story trailer.
Here is an overview of the trailer and characters, via Warner Bros.:
The story trailer introduces an original, time-bending narrative that continues the franchise’s epic saga. In Mortal Kombat 11, Raiden’s defeat of the evil Elder God, Shinnok, has drawn the ire of Kronika and upset her desired balance between good and evil. To restore stability in the realms, Kronika has only one option: rewind time to its beginning and restart history.
