The new expansion - which is known as 'Mortal Kombat 11: Aftermath' - has been developed by the award-winning NetherRealm Studios.

Reflecting on the development, Ed Boon, the creative director at NetherRealm Studios, said: "Our fans have really enjoyed the story campaign in 'Mortal Kombat', and we're happy to continue the narrative and add new characters to the roster with 'Mortal Kombat 11: Aftermath'.

"In addition, Friendships and Stage Fatalities are being added as part of the free content update for all 'Mortal Kombat 11' players. Both are fan-favourite features that we're excited to finally bring back to the franchise."

'Mortal Kombat 11: Aftermath' expands the story campaign with an all-new, cinematic narrative. And the upcoming release has been handed a digital-first launch date of May 26.

The expansion will be available on PlayStation4, Xbox One X, Nintendo Switch, PC and Stadia.

The 'Mortal Kombat' series - which is already one of the highest-grossing media franchises of all time - was first launched in 1992, but has subsequently branched out into TV shows, films and music.
