We are here with the Mortal Kombat 11 Ultimate PS5 review. With this review we have prepared for you, we are talking about the innovations that Mortal Kombat 11 Ultimate brings to the new generation consoles.
Mortal Kombat, which left its mark in the 90s but has fallen into the background among the big games over the years, is still being played by a large mass of players, although it has recently lost its popularity. Mortal Kombat, which is still among the best productions in the fighting game genre, continues to show its quality with every game it releases. Finally, NetherRealm Studios, which appeared before the players with the Mortal Kombat 11 series in 2019, won the appreciation of the players with both its successful storytelling and detailed character development system.
Mortal Kombat 11 Ultimate Review – Story
Mortal Kombat 11 Ultimate does not offer any innovation to users in terms of story. The production, which includes all the story content that comes with the additional packages in the first game, manages to attract the attention of the players, especially with its action-packed and entertaining storytelling. If we briefly talk about the story of the main game, we are trying to eliminate Raiden in this game.
Kronika (Keeper of Time), enraged after Raiden’s actions, plans to create a new era without Raiden. For this reason, Kronika calls the villains from both past and present into reality. Throughout the game’s story, players also struggle with characters from different time periods.
In addition, players who buy this version of the game can also continue the main story of the game with the new story that comes with the Aftermath package. In this story, which is the continuation of the main game, we fight with Liu Kang to protect the future of the guard of time. In the Aftermath package, as in the main game, beautiful cinematics and lots of action scenes welcome us.
If we evaluate the story of the game in general, this package welcomes us in the story that comes with Aftermath, apart from the main game. The story of the main game takes about 7-8 hours. The story that comes with the Aftermath package offers players an average of 7 hours of gameplay. In short, let’s say that players who buy the Ultimate version of the game will face an average of 15 hours of story.
Newcomer Characters and Rambo
One of the most prominent features of Mortal Kombat 11 Ultimate is the character customization screen that has been briefly improved to the previous games of the series. Through this renewed development screen, players can customize both the view and play style of the character. Thus, a freer and different Mortal Kombat experience is offered to players.
As you know, the customizations in the recently released games are purchased via micro payments. In short, players who want to improve their character have to pay an additional fee. However, it should be noted that this is not the case with Mortal Kombat 11 Ultimate. Customization items in the game can be purchased together with the missions you complete and the matches won. I can also say that this detail is a plus for players who attach importance to cosmic customization in the game.
Let’s leave all this behind and come to the characters that come with the game. A total of 37 different characters can be played in Mortal Kombat 11 Ultimate. Thus, with a single version, players can access 13 different characters that were added to the game with previous additional packages. Also in this package of the game, there are prominent characters such as Terminator, Joker, Spawn and RoboCop. In addition to this, in this version of the game, the character of John Rambo, who is familiar to everyone, except for the former Mortal Kombat fighters Mileena and Rain, is also included in the game.
While John Rambo, who has made a name for himself in his films, comes with his own weapons, Sylvester Stallone himself voices this character. I can safely say that this detail adds a lot of pleasure to the game.
Mortal Kombat 11 Ultimate PS5 Review – What Is Available For Next Gen Consoles?
Although Mortal Kombat 11 Ultimate is specially developed for new generation consoles such as PS5 and Xbox Series, it also brings some innovations to minus generation consoles. Let’s talk briefly about these innovations.
One of the biggest advantages of the new generation is undoubtedly the loading times. We almost do not see the loading screen in the PS5 period of the game. This is a great advantage, especially for players who are bored with the loading screens.
As for the visual improvements, there is no innovation in this section for older generation consoles. However, the game can be played on PS5 and Xbox Series X with dynamic 4K resolution. Thus, we can see the details of the characters in the game in the most detailed way.
As you know, the controller of the PlayStation 5 comes with tactile feedback, adaptive triggers and an advanced vibration motor. In this way, you can experience all the innovations of the PS5 DualSense controller, which offers players a different experience, in Mortal Kombat 11 Ultimate version.
Apart from all these, this version of the game comes with cross platform and cross next generation support. Thanks to this support, PS4, Xbox One, PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X / S users can play the game at the same time. Thus, the players are not divided into two as the new generation and the minus generation.
In addition to the improved visuals, Mortal Kombat 11 Ultimate also hosts additional packages that have been in the game for the last year. If you don’t have the main game and are thinking of experiencing it, we highly recommend Mortal Kombat 11 Ultimate.
In addition, it should be noted that although the new version of the game is played with dynamic 4K resolution, the improved visuality in this part is not noticeable.
