Mortal Kombat 11’s Competitive Ranked Mode and Shang Tsung Launch Tomorrow
Have you really been honing your Mortal Kombat 11 skills over the past few weeks? Feel like you’re ready to take on the world? Well, starting tomorrow (June 18) you’ll be able to see how you stack up, as that’s when the Mortal Kombat 11 Kombat League launches. The new ranked mode will be divided into seasons, with players competing to earn a coveted spot on the leaderboards and some exclusive new goodies. You can check out a quick trailer for Kombat League, below.
Here’s the full official Kombat League description:
In Mortal Kombat 11’s new Kombat League, players compete in ranked matches during a four-week season to progress through nine tiers, climbing from the ranks of Apprentice to Elder God. Players will be rewarded with exclusive in-game items for each unlocked rank. Rewards are cumulative, with players earning all unlocked items up to the highest tier achieved in a given season. Players can also earn in-game items by playing in various daily and seasonal quests.
Once a season expires, a new season starts immediately with new rewards and incentives to earn. The optimized matchmaking system in Kombat League will ensure players are matched with opponents at or near their same skill level. As part of the Kombat League update, a new meter has been added giving players a quick look at their odds of winning against an opponent at the beginning of each ranked match.
In addition to Kombat League, tomorrow will also see the launch of DLC character Shang Tsung, provided you’ve purchased Mortal Kombat 11’s first Kombat Pack. The pack offers six fighters, a Johnny Cage mime-themed skin and gear (for whatever reason), and 18 assorted skins for other characters for $40.
Mortal Kombat 11 is available now on PC, Xbox One, PS4, and Nintendo Switch. What do you think? Will you be mixing it up online in the Kombat League?
