Under the illusion of presenting Best Sports or Racing Game, NetherRealm Studios boss and Mortal Kombat co-creator Ed Boon made his way onto the stage to present the award nominees, but that's not how things played out. The gaming franchise that also turned into a series of films has been going for 25 years and the new promo is nothing short of anniversary release. Will Mortal Kombat 11 be skipping Steam like so numerous other announcements from The Game Awards tonight?

Mortal Kombat 11 deepens and personalizes the experience unlike ever before with an all new Custom Character Variation System that gives players the creative control of building customized versions of the character roster.

Speaking of new characters, we learn in the accompanying press release that the mysterious individual seen at the end of today's trailer is a "new character who is at the center of Mortal Kombat 11's story". The inclusion of Shao Khan as DLC shouldn't surprise any Mortal Kombat fans, as Goro was previously relegated to add-on character back in Mortal Kombat X.
