Mortal Kombat is not an easy game. You need to do a little homework in order to play and enjoy the game,if you are a beginner. So, before jumping into the game, first let’s go through the storyline.
Here Is The Mortal Kombat Background Storyline:
In this game, there are different realms in different dimensions. The Outworld and the Earthrealm are the most important part of the game. We live in Earthrealm, it’s our world but it is in danger from being attacked and conquered by Shao Kahn, the ruler of Outworld.
The rule is, if any realm wins 10 consecutive Mortal Kombat tournaments then they can take control of the opposite realm and conquer it. If there is any attempt to deny the result of the tournament then the team will be punished by the Elder Gods.
But, that’s not it. Shao kahn has a secret. He uses a dirty tactic to force sudden death, a single combat against him to conquer the world. There are also other characters including immortal dragon king, battle robots, undead warriors, warring ninja clans and a “soulnado”.
In short you will be playing against the opponents to save your world. This was the real story until the release of a soft reboot Mortal Kombat in 2011 which changed the whole story and a new storyline has been framed.
According to the release of Mortal Kombat 2011, at the beginning of game, Raiden, the god of thunder and Shao Kahn were the last two fighters standing in the game. When the Shao Kahn was just about to throw a killing move on Raiden, the thunder god sent a message to his past self that Shao Kahn needed to win the tournament.
Thus, Raiden of the past allowed Shao Kahn to win. On this, the Elder gods punished the Emperor for cheating and conquering without winning the 10 consecutive tournaments. This scenario led to Mortal Kombat X.
In this scenario, Liu Kang and Kitana are villians. Kotal is Shao Kahn’s son but he wasn’t that bad guy when compared to the other two characters. So, there are many more things yet to be revealed in the Mortal Kombat 11. Till then we have to wait. But there are some hints about one more character Kronika, who is trying to change the history.
