The trailer for Mortal Kombat 11 has arrived and the series' blood-spilling, bone-breaking savagery looks more cinematic than ever. Watch every hi-res, skull-smashing moment in the trailer up top. And if the gore isn't the draw, the clip is soundtracked by a new 21 Savage track, "Immortal."

The sequel was revealed by OG co-creator Ed Boon at The Game Awards yesterday. Developer NetherRealm Studios promises all-new custom character variations to let gamers change existing characters and build their own. The game will see the return of "Klassic" fighters such as Raiden and Scorpion — as seen in the trailer — and promises to add a few new faces as well.

Boasting a new graphics engine, Mortal Kombat 11 promises to make every special move and fatality a visceral and thoroughly unpleasant experience for all (in a good way).

Mortal Kombat 11 drops globally on April 23, 2019, with a community reveal event planned for January 17. Preorders are open now and necessary if you want access to villain Shao Kahn and the game beta.
