Check the VGA 2018 trailer down below:

“At this year’s The Game Awards show, Ed Boon showed off the studio’s return to their violent roots. In the first trailer for the game, we see a familiar fight: Scorpion Vs. Raiden. As it unfolds, however, things start to appear different: Raiden is rocking red lightning, which in the cartoon logic of Mortal Kombat indicates he’s either very mad or outright evil. Meanwhile, Scorpion looks slightly different, but nothing out of the realm of a redesign. Raiden ends up winning the fight, but it’s quickly revealed Scorpion was not alone. He’s joined by… Scorpion, who eventually kills Raiden.

The last few seconds of the trailer reveal what this is all about: A mysterious woman is seen touching a giant hourglass, flowing in reverse. This likely means there’s some time-warping tomfoolery going on, similar to the events that started the whole reboot aspect of 2011’s Mortal Kombat.”

Players can pre-order the game on Nintendo Switch,PS4, Xbox One and PC tomorrow, Pre-Order owners will enjoy bonuses including Shao Kahn access and beta access.
