Mortal Kombat 11 pulled from EVO Online following allegations of abuse tied to the event's co-founder

NetherRealm has announced that Mortal Kombat 11 will no longer be a part of EVO Online this year, following allegations of abuse against tournament president and co-founder, Joey “Mr. Wizard” Cuellar. NetherRealm's statement on the matter reads as follows.

“We stand in solidarity with those who have spoken out against abuse. We will be pulling MK11 from EVO Online.”

EVO organizers recently placed Cuellar on administrative leave during a third-party investigation of abuse allegations. As it stands now, this year's EVO has just three games left in its lineup.

Mortal Kombat 11: Aftermath Kollection's physical release won't have any game card at all

Just wasn't in the cards

When we first heard about the Mortal Kombat 11: Aftermath Kollection, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment's Twitter support said the package would include a game card with the base game, and download codes for the DLC. Turns out that information was incorrect.

Thanks to the updated cover art and listing for Mortal Kombat 11: Aftermath Kollection on Amazon, we now know that the entire package is going to be digital. If you buy that package at retail, you're getting a box with a bunch of codes...that's it. Over in the UK, there won't even be a physical presence for the game. The only option will be to access the DLC via the Switch eShop.

RoboCop in Mortal Kombat 11: Aftermath features the voice and likeness of actor Peter Weller, who portrayed the popular character in both the original “RoboCop” (1987) film and “RoboCop 2” (1990) sequel. Mortal Kombat 11: Aftermath will also include three new character skin packs to be released over time.

Additionally, all Mortal Kombat 11 owners will have access to new Stages, including the return of the Klassic Dead Pool and Soul Chamber arenas, accompanied by Stage Fatalities, the fan-favourite finishing moves that use the environment to destroy opponents, and the popular Friendships feature from the ‘90s, which allows players to take down their adversaries with a hint of kindness. These features will be available as a free content update in conjunction with the Mortal Kombat 11: Aftermath release.

Liu Kang actor for the new Mortal Kombat movie talks about how he relates to the character, and the work that went into the film

Lin on Kang

Ludi Lin is the actor portraying Liu Kang in the upcoming Mortal Kombat movie, and it sounds like he had the time of his life shooting the movie. In an interview with JayneStars, Lin discusses how his real-life experience ties into Liu Kang, and also how much work it was filming.

“I got into fights when I was a kid. I didn’t like it when people picked on the weak, and I didn’t consider myself to be weak. I lost a lot of fights too. I also fought for what I thought was right. What I think is true. So that’s very Liu Kang. It was the most fighting that I’ve ever done before,” said Lin. “Director Simon McQuoid is very devoted to this world. He is very passionate about building a universe of Mortal Kombat, rather than one single fight film. He started a back story of the entire world and made sure to flesh out the characters, so that people feel it’s not just a video game and there is some substance behind it.”
